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
Setting your POP port manually in Eudora
Eudora uses an initialization file normally called eudora.ini and which is normally located in the same folder as the Eudora application itself. It contains all the information needed to configure the behavior of Eudora.

Modify this configuration file at your own risk. We recommend that you make a backup copy of it first in case you make a mistake. You can use NotePad to edit this file. The NotePad editor is normally found by clicking Start the start button, and select Programs | Accessories | NotePad.

You must NOT use a word processor such as Microsoft Word to edit this file.

For your information, the latest version of the Eudora manual is available in Adobe Acrobat format from the Eudora support site.

The Eudora INI file is broken up into a number of sections, each section starting with a word in square brackets. The most important section is the one called [settings] and is usually the first section in the file. The information about your main personality, called the <dominant> personality, is stored here. If you look at it, you will see a sequence of lines such as the following:

[Settings]
AlwaysConnected=0
DontShowUpdates=1
POPAccount=your pop acount
RealName=your real name
ReturnAddress=your email address
CheckForMailEvery=10
SavePassword=1
LeaveMailOnServer=0
SMTPPort=25
POPPort=110
...


The POPPort entry will most likely NOT be there if you are using the default POP port which is in fact 110. If it is not there, simply insert the line exactly as written into this section. If you need to use a different port number for the POP server, then simply type that port number instead of 110.

Similarly, the SMTPPort entry may not be there if you are using the default SMTP port which is 25. As with the POP port, if ChoiceMail informed you to use a different port number for the SMTP server, then simply type that port number instead of 25.

Check your changes very carefully, then save the file back into the Eudora folder, overwriting the previous version. Then run Eudora again.

If you had multiple personalities setup in Eudora, you will need to modify the POPPort settings for each of those personalities as well. Each personality can be found in the INI file and you will need to add the settings above (for POPPort and SMTPPort).
