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
Creating your own challenge/response process
If you do not wish to use the highly secure challenge/response process supported by our servers, you can configure ChoiceMail One to bypass our registration process and create your own email-based challenge/process.

There are two steps to doing this.

1) Customize your outgoing challenge message to remove the link that refers to the challenge. Then add whatever text you want to your message such as telling people that they should put the number "xyzzy" (say) in the subject line of a message back to you.

2) Create a new permission rule that looks for 'xyzzy' in the subject line of incoming messages. Set the action of that permission rule to Approve Sender.

Note that when you handle challenge/response in this manner, there is no option to view the sender information before they are approved.

What our users say:

You have written possibly the best little hunk of software in terms of cost and benefits.
