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
Remote access


Remoteaccess
(Note – this section assumes you have some basic knowledge about TCP/IP and configuring local area networks, and firewalls. DigiPortal Software will not provide technical support for these topics)

By default, IP filtering is disabled and ChoiceMail will only allow access from email applications running on the same computer as ChoiceMail. The IP address 127.0.0.1, known as ‘localhost’ is always enabled.

To allow other computers to access the ChoiceMail server, check the ‘Allow specified connections” option and add a list of IP addresses corresponding to those other computers.

We do not recommend that you select “Full remote access” unless you are running behind a firewall and you are certain that no unauthorized systems can access your machine otherwise you run the risk of allowing your mail server to be used by others for sending out spam.

To add a specific IP address to the list, type it into the edit field labeled "IP address or address range" and click the Add button. To remove an entry from the list, first click on the entry to select it and then click the Remove button

To add an IP address range (subnet) use the * character to replace any sub-address in the given subnet. For example:

192.168.1.* would include all addresses that start with 192.168.1. (e.g. 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255)

192.168.* would do the same but the subnet would include all addresses that start with 192.168.

Once you have completed this configuration, you can connect to ChoiceMail from email programs on your network. You should refer to the account settings on the email program that was directly configured by ChoiceMail as a guide. Note in particular that the server settings for both SMTP and POP3 will be the IP address of the machine where ChoiceMail is running. Note also that the account name will be configured using the ChoiceMail UserName followed by a slash followed by the actual email address from which you want to retrieve messages.
