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!

ChoiceMail 1.228

New Features
Registration message — Users can now configure the messages that are sent out by ChoiceMail asking somebody to register and when you approve someone.


Tab consolidation — The number of tabs has been consolidated from seven down to five. There is now only one tab for the whitelist and one tab for the blacklist. Also, “new senders” are now called “unknown senders”.

Configuration — The configuration wizard has been improved so that when you’re trying (but failing) to connect to ChoiceMail from your email app, ChoiceMail can tell you if the userid or password is correct

Menu reorganization — It is now easier to access some of the more important dialogs directly from the Options menu.

Logging — More information is now displayed in the logs indicating the size of messages being downloaded. If you click the “Check for new emails” button and ChoiceMail is already downloading messages, it will so indicate.


Testing for BCC — Fixed a problem where our test to see if your email address was included was case-sensitive when it shouldn’t have been. This sometimes stopped ChoiceMail from sending out a registration request.

Window size — Fixed a problem where it was possible to shrink the main window so much horizontally that some buttons were no longer visible.

Hint windows — ChoiceMail sometimes didn’t remember that you checked the “Don’t show this to me again” option after seeing a hint.

Invalid file name — Fixed a bug where an invalid sender email address could sometimes try to create an invalid message file name.

Messages not deleted — Fixed a problem where downloading a limited number of lines of a message on one device caused a problem where the message could not be deleted and other email apps would then get the same message multiple times.

List out of bounds error — Fixed a problem where you could get this error if you got to the POP accounts setup and didn’t have any accounts there already.

POP server stopped sometimes — POP server was stopping by itself — fixed.
