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 2.61
Release Notes - these notes describe features that apply to all versions of ChoiceMail except where indicated

New features
Product Tour- Added product tour which can be run from the Help menu - a quick way for new users to become familiar with the features in ChoiceMail.


Headers- Added header for keeping why message was marked as spam inside the message.
Junkbox- Added the ability to navigate through the list of junk messages by pages like we do on the sender list. This makes access to the junkbox much faster
Filenames- Fixed a problem where we couldn't save a message if it used a forbidden old-style DOS filename such as CON, LPTx and so forth.
Address import- The address wizard now defaults to selecting all addresses for possible inclusion.
CPU 100% usage- Corrected a rare problem where usage could go to 100%


Setup wizard— Fixed problem with SMTP port not being correct imported into the setup wizard. Also, when using same credentials as pop3 account and there is only 1 pop3 account, you don't have to pick which one.
Challenges— Fixed a bug where responses to challenges were being deleted if manual whitelist/blacklist processing was enabled.
Global permissions (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) — Fixed problem where in server versions - global sender lists would be overridden and senders would appear as new again
Web browser (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) — Fixed a problem where an access violation could be triggered when viewing corrupted messages through the web browser. Notification (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) — Fixed problem where notification messages would not be forwarded correctly.
Senders (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) — Fixed bug where the wrong sender database record was updated between the local list one and the global list one
Auto preapproval (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) — Fixed incorrect functionality where the local pre-approval options were not taken into account when the "Also approve the sender on user's local whitelist" option is on.
Web viewer (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) - Added ability to delete a message from the web viewer interface.
Automatic checking- Fixed problem where the "Automatic email checking" option when turned off was keeping checking at regular intervals.
Global lists (ChoiceMail Enterprise/ChoiceMail Small Business) - Fixed problem where senders were added on global lists without previously checking if the email address was not protected. Same problem with the address book.
