Why Use Choicemail?

no-junk-mail-200-black.jpg

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 do I configure Auto White Listing with Exchange 2000 - 2003?
Instructions to set up Auto White Listing

In ChoiceMail:

1. Bring up ChoiceMail's Control Panel

2. Stop both servers.

3. Click on ChoiceMail Server Setup

4. Click on Advanced

5. Click on 'Change Access Permission'

6. Set access permission to 'Full remote access' Or the IP address of the machine that Exchange is running on.

7. Click OK all the way out and Start both ChoiceMail Servers.


In Exchange:

Here are the instructions for setting up Auto White Listing if you are running Exchange 2000 or 2003.

1. Bring up Microsoft Exchange System Manager.

2. Click on the servers -> Expand to find the server that Exchange is on -> Expand that to find Protocols -> Expand that to find SMTP -> Click on the SMTP folder so that the Default SMTP Virtual Server is listed in the right hand column -> Right click on it and select Properties.

3. From the Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties screen click on the Delivery Tab.

4. Click on the Outbound Connections button at the bottom.

5. Change the TCP port to 35 and click OK

6. From the Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties screen -> Delivery Tab, Click on the Advanced button.

7. The fully qualified domain name should already be there but if it is not then you need to add it. If you control your MX records it is probably mail.yourdomain.com however if you are getting an email feed then it is probably your mail machine server name.yourdomain.com

8. The smart host should be in square brackets [127.0.0.1] IF ChoiceMail is installed on the same server as your mail server if not then in the square brackets you must list the IP Address of the server that ChoiceMail resides on.

9. Click OK

10. Click OK all the way out until you are back to the Default SMTP Virtual Server.

11. Make sure you remove any SMTP Connectors from the Connectors section on your system manager or this procedure will not work. 

12. Right click on it, but this time choose STOP. Once it has stopped then Choose Start.

13. Once it has started you are all set and Auto White Listing is now configured you can close all of the windows that you have open.
