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
McAfee Reports a generic.dx Trojan Virus in ChoiceMail executable files

Problem: Your ChoiceMail and McAfee (or other related programs from the same company) anti-virus claims that ChoiceMailAdminControlPanel.exe and of CMServer.exe file is infected by a "generic.dx Trojan Virus"

This is obviously a false positive which is a BUG in the McAfee software and not a ChoiceMail problem.

Fix: As of 10am EST, Dec 24th 2008 McAfee has contacted us and confirmed this. They sent us a "fix file" that we can use until next update (number 5474) is released.

To resolve the problem - you can either wait for the next McAfee update and then perform the steps below or download the EXTRA.DAT file now (the file is zipped so please unzip it first) and place the EXTRA.DAT file into your C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\DAT folder. you have to reboot your computer after you place this extra DAT file.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT uninstall ChoiceMAil - simply reinstall it so that only the missing file is replaced.
Once your computer reboots, please reinstall ChoiceMail over your existing ChoiceMail files.
This may fix the problem. Try opening the ChoiceMail Admin Control Panel.
If you can open it and start the service - the problem has been fixed.
If you get a message that ChoiceMail is not installed properly, please open the folder where you installed ChoiceMail (C:\Program Files\DigiPortal Software\ChoiceMail) and double click on a file called installcmsbservice.cmd
Afterwards try to open the ChoiceMail Admin Control Panel again and start the service.

We would like to reiterate that at any point in time there never was a virus in any of the ChoiceMail executable files - this is a bug in your McAfee security software.

(As always - as mail is being downloaded by ChoiceMail - your anti-virus may report viruses in some messages. This is normal and will not damage your ChoiceMail. Your security software is doing a good job in this instance.)

 

What our users say:

after [installing] ChoiceMail One, zero, zilch, zip, not a single piece of spam.
