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
Inactivity timeout

Symptom: ChoiceMail displays a message that it's waiting for your email program to connect to it but no matter what you do, your email program cannot connect to ChoiceMail - you've tried changing ports, all to no avail. In the activity logs, every time your email program tries to connect, you see the error message "Inactivity timeout" and the connection is closed immediately.


Solution: This is a firewall problem - we have most recently encounted this problem with McAfee's system and even though we tried disabling the various components (firewall, privacy, anti-spam, anti-virus), we were unable to get the connection to work until we actually uninstalled McAfee's software after which point the email program and ChoiceMail worked with no problem.

We want to make it clear that this kind of problem is ALWAYS related to bugs in firewall/security products that intercept internet connections. This is NEVER a ChoiceMail bug, ChoiceMail is simply the unwitting "trigger". Consider using a different firewall (we find ZoneAlarms works extremely well and a free version is available if you don't want to pay for it).
