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
Your computer does not dial the Internet automatically


If you are on a dialup connection, Windows should connect to the internet automatically whenever ChoiceMail One needs to check mail. This works as expected on Windows 9x/ME systems.

However, if you are running Windows 2000 or XP, you may find that the OS does not connect to the internet automatically. Apparently this change was made by Microsoft.

Fortunately, it is possible to fix this problem. We found the answer in the microsoft.public.windowsxp.general newsgroup via a Google search and you can read it directly here.


Since we do not know whether this information will remain in that newsgroup permanently, we are republishing it below on the assumption that it is a fair use of the information. We thank Mr. Fred Sepanek whose name is associated with the answer below.

Enable autodial in NT/XP...

On Windows 95/98/ME, wetting the connection in Internet Explorer (or
from the Internet Icon of the Control Panel) causes a connection when a
program attempts to connect to the Internet. In Windows 2000/NT/XP,
those settings only apply to IE/Outlook etc.(windows programs). Re-set
that to 'Never dial a connection'. Then:

Start|Settings|Control Panel
Double Click 'Administrative Tools'
Double Click 'Services'
Double Click 'Remote Access Auto Connection Manager'
In the Startup type: pull down menu, select 'Automatic'
Click the Start button.

Start|Settings|Network and Dial-up Connections
Ensure that there is a dialer or create one if there isn't
Select the Dialer
Click the 'Advanced' pull down menu
Select 'Dial-up Preferences...'
Under the Autodial Tab, enable the 'Enable autodial by location' checkbox

[optionally]...
Start|Settings|Network and Dial-Up Connections
Click the 'Advanced' pull down menu
Select 'Advanced Settings...'
Under the Adapters and Bindings tab, in the Connections: window, choose
the order for DNS to use (LAN or dialup adapter)

Also...
Generally, if a connection can be established on the LAN, the system
does not try to establish a dial up connection.

From the dial up window, choose the Advanced pull down menu, then
select Advanced settings. From there you can select the order of
connections to try. Setting dial up first should allow connection by
dialup ...
