ChoiceMail One awarded LAPTOP Magazine Editors’ Choice
ORLANDO, FL (June 27th , 2005) DigiPortal Software, Inc. (www.digiportal.com), a leading developer of information management tools designed to combat email spam and inappropriate Internet content announced today that its ChoiceMail One anti-spam software has been honored with LAPTOP Magazine’s coveted Editors’ Choice Award.
LAPTOP Magazine stated that “ChoiceMail One makes junk e-mail a thing of the past without blocking the messages that should get through”. LAPTOP Magazine reported that ChoiceMail One stops 100 percent of spam, is easy to configure and does not block legitimate e-mail. LAPTOP also noted that ChoiceMail One can protect an unlimited number of email addresses, and can even protect webmail accounts from popular sites such as Yahoo, AOL and MSN/Hotmail.
DigiPortal estimates that ChoiceMail One saves users an average of at least fifteen minutes per day. It keeps unwanted email completely out of the user’s email program, which significantly reduces the risk of accidental infection with viruses, web bugs and other dangerous and offensive content. This means that it also stops phishing scams that can lead to identity theft and fraud.
ChoiceMail allows email messages into your inbox from people that are approved as legitimate senders. This includes people in your address book, people to whom you send emails and new senders whom you approve after they complete a simple one-time identity verification process that takes approximately 15 seconds. Further, ChoiceMail does NOT require continuous maintenance or “tweaking” of rules as do most spam filters. Further, it supports distribution list messages and also makes it easy for users to receive online purchase confirmations and other automated messages. Permission-based spam blockers have been criticized in the past for not handling these functions well.
DigiPortal also offers server-based versions of ChoiceMail for both small and large enterprises. Almost 500 organizations use these server-based solutions to stop the endless flow of spam aimed at them. Analysts who study the spam problem estimate that spam accounts for 75-80% of all email and cost businesses as much as $2000 per employee per year. By stopping all spam, ChoiceMail enables companies to eliminate this entire expense. The server-based versions of ChoiceMail have been particularly well received by accounting and law firms, for whom DigiPortal calculates that the entire investment in ChoiceMail can pay for itself in as little as one week.
“We’re delighted to be recognized by LAPTOP,” said Dan Wallace, Vice President of Business Development at DigiPortal. “As they discovered in their tests, ChoiceMail simply works. You get the email you want, you don’t get any spam, and once in a while you get a message that someone new wants to contact you. It couldn’t be any easier. Our users quickly forget that they ever had a spam problem.”
