Why Use Choicemail?

no-junk-mail-200-black.jpg

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




New features
Virtual email addresses (except CM Free) - Added ability to create and edit virtual email addresses from within the user interface.

Updates
Approve senders from junkbox- You can now approve a sender whose messages are in the junkbox.
Concurrent account access- Added mechanism to handle the case where stupid mail clients try to open multiple connections to a server from the same account.
Message sizes- The size of each message in the unknown sender list is now displayed.
Permission rules- Added a condition rule to detect whether messages are larger than a defined size.
Approve/Reject multiple domains- You can now approve or reject multiple domains by selecting the senders whose domains you wish to approve or reject.
Mailing list servers- Added automatic recognition for Listbox mailing lists
Permission rules (except CM Free)- Permission rules can now be drag/dropped to/from the desktop from/to the permission rules dialog to export/import rules (hold the SHIFT key while dragging to export all rules in one go)
Setup wizard- The main CM dialog is now locked until user connects from email program.

Fixes


Deleting messages in junkbox (CMSB Server only)- We no longer open sequential TCP/IP connections to delete non-contiguous messages from the junkbox. This allows individually selected messages to be deleted much more quickly.
Aliases- Fixed problem where after deleting a user account - alias cache was not refreshed.
Junk box column sizes- You can now make the column sizes really small if you don't need to see particular columns.
Memory leak- Fixed a very obscure memory leak that was slowly wasting filehandle resources
Applying rules- The accepted/rejected domains are now taken into account when you apply the rules manually.
SMTP test- Improved SMTP testing to make sure username/password is provided if SMTP authenication is selected.
IMAP configuration- Fixed a problem where users wishing to use IMAP needed to have a POP3 account as well.
Setup wizard- Fixed an access violation that could occur if no email accounts were found in email application
Web interface (ChoiceMail Enterprise and CMSB only)- Fixed a problem where an occasional access violation could prevent remote logins.
Timeout handling for duplicate email addresses- Added a timeout for handling the case where a second thread tries to lock a mailbox while it's already locked (Sometimes customers either have duplicate email addresses in their email clients or for some other reason are trying to access the POP3 server simultaneously from two different threads or applications)
Permission rules- Fixed problems with OtherHeaders condition. Also now remove trailing colon if someone puts it in by mistake when entering an other header.
Outlook Express identities- Fixed a problem where the setup wizard could not always determine from which identity to retrieve email addresses.
Infinite looping (ChoiceMail Enterprise only)- Fixed potential problem where email could get into an infinite loop if mail server was configured to relay all mail through ChoiceMail, generate non delivery reports and spammer used the from address that matches one of CME domains.

 

What our users say:

I'll never own a computer and an email account without using CHOICEMAIL! To me, using CHOICEMAIL protetection, is just as important as having an Anti-virus program. I've added CHOICEMAIL to my list of things needed when setting up a computer!
