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
Note for ISPs and Hosting Companies

If you are reading this note, then you have most likely been contacted by a user of our spam-blocking product ChoiceMail One who is experiencing a mail problem.

ChoiceMail One is running on the user's machine and is essentially configured to behave as a proxy between the user's email application and your POP3 and SMTP servers.

ChoiceMail One has reconfigured the user's email application so that the email application now connects to ChoiceMail One instead of directly to your mail servers. That is why the SMTP and POP3 server settings in the user's email application are set to localhost. Please do not tell the user to change these server values in his or her email client.

It may also be the case that ChoiceMail has changed (or requires to be changed) the port settings in the email program from 110 (POP3) and 25 (SMTP) to new values to avoid conflicts with some other applications that are listening on those ports (typically some older style anti-virus product). Again, DO NOT TELL THE USER TO CHANGE THESE SETTINGS. The actual port settings that ChoiceMail is listening on can be found by clicking on Options | Configuration | Advanced in the ChoiceMail main window.

ChoiceMail One itself contains the settings to receive mail from your POP3 server and to send mail through your SMTP server. It supports all the usual authentication schemes if needed.

The user's POP3 settings are available in ChoiceMail One by clicking on Options | EMail Account Settings

The user's SMTP settings are available in ChoiceMail One by clicking on Options | Configuration.

These are the two places that reference the POP3 and SMTP servers respectively at your ISP or Hosting Company.
