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
A message I wanted was deleted by the Domain Address Check permission rule

The \"Domain Address Check\" looks in the body of a message for URLs that are from servers around the world known to be spam sources. These servers are collected into regions in our system.

So one of the URLs in the body of your message matched one of those domains. If in fact you get legitimate mail containing URLs from one of those regions, you may wish to remove that particular region from the list.

To do this, you have to do one of two things

A) Disable the Domain Address Check rule compeltely
Doing this is easy but means that more spam will show up in your
unknown senders list (which may or may not matter to you) and more
challenges will be sent out.
To do this, follow these instructions

1) Open the Permission Management dialog (Actions | Permission
2) Click on the Rules tab
3) Click on the checkbox called \"View built-in rules\"
4) Scroll down the list of rules to the bottom where you should find a rule called \"Domain Address Check\"
5) Click the checkbox to the left of that rule to disable the rule
6) Click OK to close the permission rule dialog

B) A more sophisticated approach is to eliminate the specific IP address that is causing the problem.

1) View the message in the Safe Message Preview window
2) Switch to the Domain List view where you will get a list of all domains found
3) Right-click on each domain and select \"More info on...\". This will open a web browser window and provide you with information, including the IP address of each URL that was found

4) Open the permission management dialog
5) Click on the \"Advanced\" tab
6) Click on the \"Configure...\" button - you will get a dialog telling you how many address ranges are blocked
7) Click on View | Advanced in the menu of that dialog

You will see a list of IP addresses from various places.

8) Find the IP address range that incldules the address you found from (3) above

9) Click on that IP Address rnage to select it

10) Click the Delete button to remove it

11) Click OK to close the dialog (and click OK on the other dialogs that were opened along the way)
