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
Some mail not retrieved after upgrade to v4

The problem is that your usernames are not set up correctly.
Please read my answer carefully in full before you follow a set of instructions. You will have two choices depending on how your account is set up at this point.

Option #1
-----------
For each account set up in ChoiceMail you most likely have an account in Eudora. The incoming server name is always localhost, but the usernames vary. The format is

choicemailusername/emailaddress-you-want-to-get
or just the email address you want to get.

For example...

Your username is choicemailuser (this is displayed at the top of your ChoiceMail window)

To get the mail for This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it account - your username should be
choicemailuser/ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or just
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

(this will get emails for the above address only ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ))


Options#2
------------
If you had only one account that was receiving all of your mail from ChoiceMail in one go - you would have to do the following.

1) Exit Choicmail
2) Open up ChoiceMail Admin Control Panel
3) click on User Management button (acknowledge the message that pops up)
4) Double click on your account and change your username to "choicemail" for example (no quotes)
5) Ok everything and wait until the server status is Running.
6) Reopen ChoiceMail - you will be asked if you deleted or renamed the account
7) SELECT NO (renamed account - if you select yes - you may lose your settings)
8) Type in your new username and your password to get back into ChoiceMail.
9) In eudora - change the username for that one account to just "choicemail" and it will work as before again.

Hope this helps.
 

What our users say:

I'll never own a computer and an email account without using CHOICEMAIL! To me, using CHOICEMAIL protetection, is just as important as having an Anti-virus program. I've added CHOICEMAIL to my list of things needed when setting up a computer!
