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
cmupdater.exe continuously asks for permission
Symptom: cmupdater.exe continuously asks for permission on Windows VISTA systems.

Explanation: It seems that there is no way in VISTA to remember the answer you give it when prompted if you want to allow cmupdater.exe to run.

Resolutions: ChoiceMail v4.x and up are FULLY Vista compatible and do not have this problem.

For all other versions of ChoiceMail ...

1)Open the folder where you ChoiceMail is installed and right click on the ChoiceMail.exe (application) file. Select "Properties". Switch to the "Compatibility" tab and check the box to run in Windows XP ServicePack 2 mode. Check the box at the bottom to run the application as administrator. Perform the same operation with cmupdater application. NOTE: This option willask you ONCE if you want to allow ChoiceMail to run at the start and will notrepeat the question untill you restart ChoiceMail. This option may prevent ChoiceMAil from automatically start on boot.

2) You can switch the new Windows VISTA UAC (User Account Control) setting off completely. To do that go to your Control Panel -> User settings and switch this option off.

3) You could switch off automatic updates in ChoiceMail. Please select Options->Preferences and uncheck the "Periodically check for updates" checkbox. We do not recommend this option though.

We will try to find a better resolution for this issue.
