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
Multiple POP accounts in your email application
(Legacy ChoiceMail One only)
If you have multiple POP accounts, ChoiceMail takes over responsbility for retrieving the email from each POP account and making it available to your email application.

If you are using ChoiceMail 1.6 and you have manually configured your email application, it is important that you have only one live account in it. In other words, you should have only one account in your email application that actually checks for email from ChoiceMail One. That account should be configured to connect to ChoiceMail.

If you have multiple email addresses from which you send outgoing emails, (for example you wish to distinguish between personal emails and business emails), then you can continue to maintain multiple email accounts in your email application but those other accounts must never check for email from ChoiceMail One. These other incoming POP3 accounts should be set to (or remain at ) your ISP's POP3 email server instead (I.e, MAIL.MYISP.COM) rather than "LOCALHOST".

HOWEVER, the outgoing SMTP server for those other accounts can still be set to localhost so that ChoiceMail can continue to monitor all outgoing email addresses.

As of ChoiceMail One version 2.0, if you wish to protect multiple email accounts, you can (and should) have multiple accounts configured in your email application, each of which will in the format
cmsuserid/emailAddress
where 'cmuserid' is the username you created when you first setup ChoiceMail One itself.

For example, if your ChoiceMail One username is 'george' and ChoiceMail One is protecting the following three email addresses
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

then your email client would have three POP3 accounts configured and the username fields would be
george/ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
george/ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
george/ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

You have written possibly the best little hunk of software in terms of cost and benefits.
