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
Speeding up web browsing

ChoiceMail comes with a built in web server serving the web pages for user interaction. While this server is adequate and more importantly very secure - you may want to serve the little image files using another web server to speed up the process.

To do this please do the following (this assumes you have IIS installed on the same server as ChoiceMail)

Open up your IIS administration and go to the default web site.
Right click on it and select "Create new virtual directory".
Navigate through the wizard and name the folder "cmfiles" for example.
The real folder that this virtual folder should point to is under C:\Program files\DigiPortal Software\CM Enterprise\Templates\Images (substitute your path with wherever you installed your ChoiceMail, but the important thing is that this is pointing to the \Templates\Images subfolder)
The permissions should be given to read files. No other permissions are required nor recommended.

Once done - open up your web browser and type the following as your URL
http://YOURCOMPUTERNAME/cmfiles/Yes.gif (uou will obviously substitute the "YOURCOMPUTERNAME" with your computer name :) )

You should see a small image that has the word "Yes" on it. If you do - everything is ready - otherwise your virtual directory was not set up correctly.

In ChoiceMail open up the Server Setup for ChoiceMail server. Go to the HTTP tab and replace the "path to images" with http://YOURCOMPUTERNAME/cmfiles/
Click on OK and wait for the service to restart.

Please note that if your users are accessing your ChoiceMail outside your network you may want to use the fully qualified name instead of YOURCOMPUTERNAME.

The same technique will work with any web server if you simply copy the contents of the \Images sub folder to some directory on the web server and then point your ChoiceMail to it.

The default ChoiceMail settings for this field is /images which instructs ChoiceMail to serve the files on its own.
