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
Eudora won't download mail from ChoiceMail One
Error message refers to unknown "LAST" command

If you have a very old version of Eudora, OR if you have a recent version of Eudora that was installed over an old version, you may run into a problem where Eudora will not download any mail from ChoiceMail One. Instead, you may see the following error message in Eudora:


Logging into Pop Server
There has been an error transfering your mail. I said LAST and then the POP server said -ERR Unnown Command.


Also, if you look in the first tab of the Activity logs (Options | Show Activity Logs), you will see an error message that says
-ERR Unknown Command LAST

This is a problem with incompatible POP3 commands. The LAST command was removed from the official email standard quite a while ago and is therefore not needed (and not supported) by many modern POP3 servers (including ChoiceMail One).

However, if you had a really old version of Eudora that used that command, your more recent version of Eudora may use it as well.

To tell Eudora that it should not use the LAST command, you will need to edit your Eudora.ini to disable the LAST command. Your Eudora INI file is normally found in the same folder as your Eudora application itself. Make sure that Eudora is not open while you make the modification.

Using a text editor such as NotePad (do not use a word processor as you will completely corrupt the file), edit the eudora.ini file and look for the following line.
UsePOPLast=1
Change the 1 to a 0 (zero) and save your file. Restart Eudora and you should be good to go.

 

What our users say:

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