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
Email program no longer receives mail from ChoiceMail
Symptom: ChoiceMail and your email program have been working fine. You installed a new program and all of a sudden, your email program can no longer download mail from ChoiceMail

Possible cause: Some programs quietly install IPV6 which changes the definition of "localhost", the server reference used for POP3 and SMTP in your email programs.

To verify if this is the problem, perform the following steps:

1) Open a command prompt
2) Type in the following exactly as written
ping localhost
and then press ENTER
3) You should see lines that looks like
Pinging name [127.0.0.1]
Reply from 127.0.0.1: ......

If instead of 127.0.0.1, you see ::1 then IPV6 is running on your computer.

Solution: Open your email program and go to the email accounts configuration section. For each account that you have, check the entry for the POP3 server and the SMTP server. They should both be set to 'localhost' (no quotes)

Delete the name 'localhost' and put in
127.0.0.1
instead.

That should solve the problem.
