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
How to determine what programs are using SMTP or POP3 ports?

The directions below are for XP and 2000 users only. They have not been tested on earlier operating systems.


1) Open your task manager (CTRL-SHIFT-ESC is quick short cut to this)
2) Click on the Processes tab so you can see processes
3) Click View | Select columns to configure what columns are visible
4) Make sure that you include PID (Process Identifier), then click OK
5) Now click once or twice on the PID column in the process list so that processes are listed in numerical order

6) Open a DOS command prompt (you can do this quickly by clicking on Start | Run.... and then type the word CMD then press return

7) In the new window that pops up, type the following EXACTLY as written
netstat -a -o
and then press ENTER

8) You will see a list of all processes that are listening on ports. The column \"Local Address\" will show the listening ports - look for one called \"smtp\"
9) The PID on the right hand side indicates the process that has bound (taken) the SMTP port, which is port 25

10) Go back to the task manager window and look for that PID number

11) The process name on the left will tell you what program has taken the SMTP port
 

What our users say:

I'll never own a computer and an email account without using CHOICEMAIL! To me, using CHOICEMAIL protetection, is just as important as having an Anti-virus program. I've added CHOICEMAIL to my list of things needed when setting up a computer!
