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!

Why ChoiceMail
I'm not receiving mail from some people who are on my whitelist

We have received a number of complaints from users who thought ChoiceMail was blocking mail from whitelisted senders. We have investigated each of these situations and in every case we have found that the problem is that the user’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) has implemented some form of spam-filter that is blocking legitimate mail. In particular, we have had complaints about Earthlink, which has its own challenge-response system that is much less sophisticated than the one in ChoiceMail.

ChoiceMail approves any message from a whitelisted sender. However, it can only process the mail it receives. If your ISP stops mail before it reaches ChoiceMail, there is nothing we can do.

If you believe you are having this problem, we recommend the following steps.

  • Open ChoiceMail from the System Tray and check the Unknown Senders screen (the default screen when you open ChoiceMail) and the Junk Box to see if there is any mail you think ChoiceMail should have approved.
  • If you do see any such mail, the sender is not on your whitelist. Highlight the sender with your mouse. Right-click and select Approve Sender(s)/Add to Whitelist. ChoiceMail will approve any future mail from this sender.
  • If you do not see the email you expected in your Inbox, the Unknow Senders screen or the Junk Box, the message never reached your computer. We recommend that you disable any spam-filtering tools run by your ISP. You may be able to do this online, or you may have to contact the ISP. ChoiceMail is the only anti-spam protection you need. If you cannot disable your ISPs anti-spam tools, we recommend that you change to a different ISP that will let you do this.
