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 to stop dictionary attacks? Store.exe slow

You may have been attacked by a dictionary attack.

There is a few things you can do to prevent these. Please read all three steps BEFORE implementing them.

1) Please read the article at the URL below and implement the recommendation so that ChoiceMAil accepts only valid emails and effectively stopps these kinds of attacks right at the door.
http://www.digiportal.com/esupport/upload_zend/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=questiondetails&_i=80&nav=+%26gt%3B+%3Ca+href%3D%27index.php%3F_a%3Dknowledgebase%26_j%3Dsubcat%26_i%3D22%27%3EHow+Do+I...in+ChoiceMail+Enterprise%3F%3C%2Fa%3E&PHPSESSID=a728b5d180452b518efc2f32b8581060

2) Once you finish the step 1. and before starting ChoiceMail again - I recommend going into the main ChoiceMail folder then \\mailboxes and delete the \"UnknownMessages\" folder BEFORE you start ChoiceMail. This folder may contain residu from previous attacks so it is a good idea to clean it up before starting ChoiceMail again. The folder will be recreated by ChoiceMail as soon as needed. This folder is part of ChoiceMail operation - do no delete it again.

3) Clean your Exchange BadMail folder. Now that you may have been attacked. Your Excange may be dealing with tons of NDR to be delivered. That would slow down the store.exe but ChiceMail as well.
Your BadMail folder may be something like this
c: \\Program Files\\Exchsrvr\\Mailroot\\vsi 1\\BadMail\\
Delete all files in there. Please note that this folder may contain MANY files at this point and simply listing the files there may be a challenge and take a LONG time. Best is to open command prompt and delete the files from there.

Once you implement all three steps your system should be back to normal AND you should be protected for the future as well.

Hope this helps.
