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
ChoiceMail Background Service Slow to Start

Q. My background service is slow to start. Sometimes minutes after I log in. What is going on?

A. It could take any amount of time until the service has started. Windows is "optimizing" the startup time by starting only a few crucial services and allowing the user to log in. Then, while you are logged on, it will start the other services it considers to be less important for the logon.

The startup time will depend on the speed of your machine obviously, but also if you are logging in manually or automatically as well as how many startup programs you have.

If you are logging in manually for example (you have to manually select a user and type in the password) then Windows has more time to start the background services.

This process has been debated (and still is) for a long time. Should windows start background services BEFORE it allows user to log in or have some sort of scheduler that does it regardless of the login. Obviously the latter has been in place for years now and I guess the main reason is to give user the appearance of a quick startup.

One most important piece as well is your security software (firewall and anti-virus). Those services can hold up everything else until they fully start up.

All this is perfectly normal and does not impact you in any way. The message that ChoiceMail is showing is for information purposes only.

You can always select not to start the ChoiceMail client automatically (the background service will still process your accounts and allow you to get mail). Then start it up manually when you need it.

Please note that the new ChoiceMail is FASTER and easier on your system than the previous versions. Your boot time is not impacted by ChoiceMail. If anything - it is most likely even faster than before. The general appearance may prompt you think otherwise.
