How ChoiceMail One Works
Previous  Top  Next

Once you've properly configured ChoiceMail and your email application, ChoiceMail One connects to your ISP's server and checks for new emails. (You can specify how often ChoiceMail connects by setting a preference.)  

·If the sender's email address is included in your whitelist (i.e., list of preapproved senders) or a permission rule, ChoiceMail passes the email directly through to your email application's inbox.  
·If the sender's email address is included in your blacklist (i.e., list of rejected senders), ChoiceMail deletes the email.  
·If the sender's email address is not included on any ChoiceMail lists or rules, ChoiceMail sends an automatic request that the sender register, and adds the email and its sender to the Unknown Senders list. The email message is not sent to your email application but rather held within ChoiceMail One. The sender registers by going to a webpage and filling in a form explaining who they are and why they wish to contact you. The submitted form is then received by ChoiceMail One for processing.  
·If the sender does not register within a specified number of days (you can specify how many days by setting a preference), the email is moved to the Junk Box window. After another interval (also specified by a preference), the email is automatically deleted.  
·If the sender does register, ChoiceMail displays a notification alert (you can specify what type of alert by setting a preference). You can    approve, reject, reject with a reason, or delete the sender using the toolbar buttons.  
·If you send a message to a sender who is not already on your whitelist, ChoiceMail adds this sender to the whitelist automatically. If the sender was on your blacklist, s/he is moved to your whitelist.  
·You can preapprove or reject individual senders and/or domains.  
·You can set permission rules for accepting and rejecting senders and messages.
