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

Permission rules - Added two new actions. (1) Change the status of a message to BCC (which essentially stops CM sending a challenge out) and (2) Delete a message permanently, bypassing the junkbox.
Administration management (CM Enterprise/Web only) - Added support for ChoiceMail Web administrators
Webmail gateway - New update addresses a number of login problems. Installation of the webmail gateway is now optional and controlled from the main installer.
Transform Rules - If you modify the transform rules, it is no longer necessary to restart ChoiceMail before you can access the updated rules.


Freeze problem - We finally tracked down a bizarre problem where CM could freeze on Windows 9x/ME systems after running for a long time. The default log size has been reduced to 30 lines.
Long delay - Fixed a problem where ChoiceMail could be held up for a long time by an incoming attachment that contains no regular text.
Junk box - We no longer populate the junkbox when CM starts – this prevents CM from hogging CPU cycles for long periods of time at start up.
SMTP manager - Fixed another problem where a bogus email address could hold up the queue of outgoing challenges.
Long download delay - Fixed a problem where a received attachment with no body text could take a long time to be processed
