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 set up a webmail account with ChoiceMail One 4.x?

Solution Staring with Choicemail 4.x we no longer fully support webmail accounts like: Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, Gmail, AOL. This, however, does not mean you cannot configure ChoiceMail with a webmail account.

If you had a previous version with webmail account support please try the following:
1) Open up your registry editor (regedit) by clickin on Start->Run and typing in regedit
2) Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareIzySpftIzyMail and DELETE the value with the name "Key" by right-clicking on it and selecting "Delete"
3) Open up ChoiceMail admin control Panel and STOP, then START the ChoiceMail service.

The accounts should work now.
NOTE: Please note that the above procedure is not supported and you should always be careful while using registry editor.

The way we suggest that you set up your webmail account to work with ChoiceMail is by first setting up your webmail account with your email application (i.e. Outlook). You can do this by forwarding webmail to a pop account or directly accessing by a pop3 account.

Alternatively you can follow the instructions below.
We suggest using IzyMail which can be configured on the following website http://www.izymail.com/

There are many alternatives to this as well. One of the more popular ones is FreePOPs (http://www.freepops.org/en/)
In ChoiceMail you can get the mail down from GreePops by simply specifying

freepops

as your POP3 host name.

The easiest way to set this up is to set up your FreePOPs to work without using ChoiceMail at all. Once you are done with that and everything works do the following.

1) In your email application change the incoming host name to freepops and then exit.
2) Run the ChoiceMail setup wizard and it should recognize the new account and let you set it up with ChoiceMail.

Other possible webmail gatewats
can be set u in similar fashion. First step is to get it working with your email application without ChoiceMail, then you can change the hostname to

local-pop3-bridge

and run the Setup Wizard.

IMPORTANT
: Once you change the hostname in your email application to local-pop3-bridge for example - that account will not work until you run the setup wizard in ChoiceMail and set the account up.
