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
Audio alert when approved mail is available

ChoiceMail does not have a built-in mechanism for playing an audio alert when approved email is available. It DOES have a mechanism to open your email program automatically when email is available. That feature is accessible from Options | Configuration | Advanced.

However, there's no law (other than that we will not officially support this) that says the program you specify HAS to be an email program. If you would like to use a wavefile of your own as an alert to let you know that approved email is available in ChoiceMail, follow the steps below:

1) Download

and save it to a known location, such as your ChoiceMail folder.

2) Click on Options | Configuration | Advanced

3) In the section called "Override system default email client", put the full path and filename of the PlayWave.exe executable into the field called "Filename". For example, if you saved PlayWave.exe to c:\program files\DigiPortal Software\ChoiceMail

then specify
c:\program files\DigiPortal Software\ChoiceMail\PlayWave.exe

into the filename field

4) Then specify your wave file (again make sure you use the full path to the file) in the PARAMETER field

5) Make sure the field called "Open email application automatically" is set to 1

6) Click OK to close the dialog.

7) You can TEST it by double-clicking anywhere in the THIRD panel of the status bar, the panel that shows you how many approved email messages are available.

Prepare to be driven nuts!

Note - this "feature" is completely unsupported by DigiPortal Software - it was provided as a quick 'n dirty solution. Please do not ask us to help you to configure it.

What our users say:

I have come to the conclusion that ChoiceMail One is the best so far.
