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 stopped sending out challenges

Symptom:
Choicemail has stopped sending out registration requests to unknown senders - it used to work fine - and I continue to be able receive messages from whitelisted senders with no problem



Solution:
Your ISP has probably changed their configuration so that all outgoing mail requires authentication. ISPs do this to increase security. You should contact your ISP or check their website to determine if this is the case.


To make sure your ChoiceMail can send outgoing challenges - click on Options | Configuration and check the box that says "This server requires authentication". Then uncheck the "use same as incoming" checkbox and type in your ISP username and password (this username and password is normally the same as your incoming POP3 username and password)

Click OK to close all dialogs.

Your messages should now go out without problems.

You may also need to reconfigure your email program as well to use authentication if it is not already set to do so. Note that when you do this, although you will enable authentication and enter the appropriate username and password, do not change the server settings - both the POP3 and SMTP servers must be set to localhost or to the explicit IP address 127.0.0.1 so that your email program can continue to communicate with ChoiceMail.
