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
Does challenge/response cause an increase in spam?
This (very old) argument is a red herring for several reasons

1) the spammers already know that your email address is valid because, if it was not, your ISP's POP server would have already bounced an "unknown user" header to them.

2) Spammers spend a lot of time blindly sending messages to ISPs and recording the responses to determine what email addresses are real....that's one of the ways they get your email address in the first place

3) 99.9999% of the spam comes from fake email addresses so nobody sees those registration messages anyway.

4) We have monitored the amount of spam being received by various users over the last few years and the rate of change in spam (increasing for everyone) has been the same as for users NOT using ChoiceMail. The product has been around for almost two years (since July 2002) and would have died out a long time ago if this was a real problem.

5) For those that are still concerned, ChoiceMail has an option to "Hide your email address" on outgoing messages for your "peace of mind"

My spam has just about totally disappeared... Ease of use, HELP is excellent.
