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
Accepted and Rejected Domains


You can tell ChoiceMail One to accept or reject all email messages whose address matches a particular domain. Most of the time, you'll want to reject a domain. Although it is not strictly necessary to do this to prevent spam from reaching your email inbox, rejecting certain domains known for being originators of spam will reduce the number of unknown senders that appear on the list in ChoiceMail One.

•  To accept all email from a domain, click the Accepted domains tab on the Permission management window. You can also choose Allow all messages from another domain from the Senders menu.

•  To reject all email from a domain, click the Rejected domains tab on the Permission management window. You can also choose Block all messages from another domain from the Senders menu.

Accepted and Rejected Domains

You can reject a complete domain, a subdomain, or a partial domain. You can also use wildcards to specify a group of similarly named domains.

Examples:

1) Suppose you receive an email from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and you want to block all emails coming from junk.email.com in the future. Just enter junk.email.com in the edit field and click the Add button. ChoiceMail One tells you when you've entered a valid domain name.

2) Blocking mail from junk.email.com will not prevent you from getting email messages from the domain spam.email.com . However, rather than adding this new domain to the list, you can remove junk.email.com and replace it with email.com .

3) Now, a minor problem blocking email.com is that this will block all messages that end with email.com, which means that a message coming from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it would also be rejected. If you don't want this to happen, change email.com to .email.com (note the period in front of the domain name).

4) Sometimes a spammer using fake domains will use a related group of domains, such as email1.com , email2.com , email3.com . In this case it's clearly not practical to add each domain separately. Instead, the solution is to specify the domain using a wildcard. ChoiceMail One accepts two kinds of wildcards.

•  Use the question mark ? to represent any single character.

•  Use the asterisk * to represent a variable number of characters (including none).

So specifying email?.com will block any messages whose domain ends with the name email followed by any single character. A specification of email*.com will block email.com itself as well as domains such as email123.com , emailxyzzy.com and so forth.

Blank Domains

Sometimes spammers send emails without any domain at all. You can automatically block emails with no domains by specifying (none) as the domain name. Please note that the parentheses are required.

I tell them that I don't have that problem since I have ChoiceMail One.
