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
Blocking emails that apparently come from your own email address

If you are receiving email messages that appear to be coming from your one of your own email addresses but that were not actually sent by you and you want to have them deleted automatically, you need to make sure that ChoiceMail knows that that email address belongs to you so that it can automatically recognize spoofed messages. Note that those messages aren't necessarily getting through to your email application but ChoiceMail ends up sending registration messages back to you.

The usual reason this happens is because you have some secondary email addresses that are associated with one of your real POP accounts. If that secondary email address happens to be in your approval list, then emails from that address will come through. The way that secondary email address could get on your approval list is if you had that address in the contact list that you imported into ChoiceMail.

The key to blocking such messages is to ensure that all your secondary email addresses are defined in your email alias list in ChoiceMail.

Note: if your whitelist contains your own email address, ChoiceMail will allow messages through that contain your own address, even if they are not your messages. You should ensure that you do not have your own email address in your whitelist. Two ways that your own email address can get on to your whitelist:
1) It was imported automatically from your contact list
2) You sent a message to yourself

We have determined that (2) above should not cause your email address to be added to your whitelist and this will be changed in a future version.

I tell them that I don't have that problem since I have ChoiceMail One.
