Miscellaneous Options  
 
Select the Use confirmation dialog boxes checkbox if you want ChoiceMail One to display a confirmation message whenever you make a change or exit the application.  
 
By default, ChoiceMail One displays 50 senders a page in the View tabs. Click the Number of senders per page up or down arrow to change this number, depending on your computer screen's resolution.  
When you enable the Show Recent Senders option on the main window, ChoiceMail One displays only the unknown senders received in the past 24 hours. You can change this value – click the Viewing recent senders up or down arrow to specify the time period (in hours) ChoiceMail One should use when filtering recent senders.  
 
Registration Alerts  
 
Select the Popup an alert when an email sender registers checkbox if you want ChoiceMail One to display a message whenever it receives a registration reply from an unknown sender.  
You can specify how long ChoiceMail One should leave a registration message up on your screen.  
Click the Close alert window automatically after x minutes up or down arrow to set the time limit, in minutes.  
Select the Play a sound when an email sender registers checkbox if you want ChoiceMail One to play a sound file whenever it receives a registration reply from an unknown sender. Click the (...) Browse button to select the audio file (.wav) you want to use. Click the Test button to hear the file.  
 
When you request more information about a suspect IP address or server domain in the Permission Management IP blocking feature, or in the Safe Message Preview window, ChoiceMail One launches the WhoIs Internet application. You can specify that ChoiceMail One should launch a different 3rd party WhoIs application. See page 69 for details.  
In the Helper apps box, click the … Browse button to select the external application you want ChoiceMail One to launch when you request more information about an IP address or server domain.  
 
Notification Options  
 
ChoiceMail v4.x and up features an optional popup notification window that can display email download progress and other notifications. By default - the window will pop up only if there are errors while downloading your mail. In most cases the errors are temporary, but it is still useful to know about it.  
Example: Your internet connection may go down for a few minutes, but come back later. ChoiceMail will notify you about inability to connect to your mail server.  
 
The options are to:  
·Disable all notifications.  
·Show errors only  
·Show mail download progress (when ChoiceMail connects to server and reports if there is new mail)  
·Mail download progress and Comments. More verbose output.  
·All notifications.  
 
The checkbox to display all progress on manual download is useful if you force ChoiceMail to download your mail by clicking on CTRL+N or selecting Actions->Check for new messages now. The notification window will show all information available and then return back to its normal notification level.
