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
ChoiceMail generates access violation on startup

Symptom: when you start ChoiceMail One, there may be a long delay, the splash screen stays up too long, and then you get an access violation. ChoiceMail v4.x an up - service starts when started from control panel, but then stops.

Solution: This problem may be caused by a specially corrupted email message that is breaking the permission rule system in ChoiceMail One.

We have created a little program that will repair your permission rules to address this problem.

Please download and run FixRegExAV.exe to repair the permission rule system.

If that does not work for any reason - please do the following.

1) Make sure ChoiceMial is NOT running.

For V4 and up make sure you open up the ChoiceMail Control Panel and STOP the service

2) Go into the folder called Rules located under the main ChoiceMail folder.

3) Find a file that has your username or email address and end with .xml (repeat the process for other .xml files as well)

4) Open this file in notepad. (Right click on it and select open with and then select notepad)

5) In Notepad select Edit->Replace and in the

"find what" box type in

For the "replace with box" type in


(note that we want to change all occurrences of enable="1" to enabled="0")

6) Save the file and close notepad making sure you have made the correct changes.

7) Start ChoiceMail again.

For v4 - start the service as well.

All the rules should still be visible, but disabled.
