Why Use Choicemail?


Because it works.

Spam now accounts for about two-thirds of all email. It costs most email users at least 15 minutes a day. Research shows that spam costs companies $400-800 per mailbox every year. And these costs are growing.

Permission-based email management is the only thing that actually solves, or ever will solve, the spam problem. (To learn more, read our whitepaper.) It is 100% effective, and ChoiceMail makes it available to you now.

With ChoiceMail, you will never get another piece of unwanted email because a message can reach your inbox in one of only four ways:

  • It is from someone on your whitelist
  • It is from a new sender whose registration request you accepted
  • It matches a permission rule you created
  • It is from a domain that is on your accepted domain list.
  • You approved it manually

In short, if an email is in your box, it’s because you want it there. ChoiceMail transfers the burden of dealing with email messages from people you don't know back to where they belong– the senders. Learn more and get your FREE trial for home or business!

Release Notes

NAV — ChoiceMail now coexists better with older versions of Norton AntiVirus that create their own POP server on your computer.
Email rules — You can now control whether all headers must match or any of them. This saves you from having to create multiple rules in some cases.
Email rules — X-Headers are now supported – you can add a new X-header and then create a rule for how to handle a message containing that X-header
Sender approval dialog — Added an icon to show in which view the sender is currently contained


Trial process — We now make sure trial dialog runs before the rest of the system starts running. This is a cosmetic change – it was confusing to be able to configure the system before discovering you were in trial mode.
Email rules — Applying rules to existing senders was sometimes not working properly for messages.
Configuration wizard — We now make sure we import the address book contacts before enabling ChoiceMail to start retrieving any email messages
Configuration wizard — Fixed invalid tab order
More obscure memory leaks — We’re sure killin’ those leaks
Mixed up menu items — auto-approve and auto-reject were interchanged
Accept message problem — Fixed problem where a message wasn’t being accepted if there was no messageID in it
Folder name changes — When renaming a user, the aliases file and the pending request folder were not renamed

ChoiceMail 1.226


List servers — Better support for list servers so that we don’t automatically send registration messages out to the entire group


MIME decoding — Fixed a problem where ChoiceMail could get stuck during the download process while downloading a broken MIME message.
