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
Changing the argument to the HELO command

Some SMTP servers need to see a valid server name during the initial protocol setup. Normally, ChoiceMail retrieves that information from the network identification string on your computer. However, depending on how that identification was created, the name may not be recognized as legitimate by the SMTP server.

If you need to have explicit control over the name of the domain presented to an SMTP server during the initial connection and HELO command, and you can't change the network identification string on your machine, you can use the following work around

Find an INI file in the ChoiceMail root folder called
smtpsender.ini
If it's not already there, then create it using a text editor such as Notepad. (Do NOT use word processors such as MS Word).

Look for a section called
[General]
and again if it's not there, simply add it at the bottom of the file.
Add the line

localhostname=foo.bar.com

underneath the [General] section, replacing the part after the '=' sign with the server name you want to use with the HELO command


Example

[General]
localhostname=mymail.companyname.com


Save the file and restart ChoiceMail
