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
ChoiceMail System TrayIcon is missing

Some ChoiceMail One users running on XP have reported that the system tray icon does not appear when ChoiceMail One is configured to start automatically when Windows XP boots up.

Try this first:

1) Right-click on a blank portion of your Start bar, and select Properties.
2) Make sure that the option at the bottom called "Hide inactive icons" is NOT checked
3) Click OK - your icon should now be visible.

-----------------------------------

If that does not solve the problem, then it may be caused by some default configuration restrictions in XP. This problem is NOT a bug in ChoiceMail itself.


We did a search and found multiple ways to address this problem. If you go to your favorite search engine and type

XP system tray icons missing

you will get a list of pages with solutions.

We have only tried one such solution which involves changing or adding a registry setting as follows:

For your convenience, we have provided this information in a registry file that you can just download and then double-click to import the information into your registry.

Step 1) Download systray.reg and save it on your desktop
Note: if your browser just displays the contents, you will need to right-click on the link above and select Save As...(or equivalent depending on your browser)

Step 2) Double-click on the downloaded file to import it into your registry
Step 3) Click Yes or OK if you are asked whether you want to import the information.



Below is the actual information that will be entered into your registry.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Name: NoTrayItemsDisplay
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: 0
