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
How do I tell CME to allow mail for valid email addresses only?

If you are receiving thousands of messages addressed to non existing addresses in your organization - your mail server may have to issue a non-delivery report for each one of those.

Follow these steps to make you server more secure use the CME validrecipient feature. (scroll down for other servers)

FOR EXCHANGE 2003 SERVERS up as well as other mail servers directly supporting recipient filtering:

* 1) Make sure your server will not receive messages to unknown email addresses.

o a) In EXCHANGE SERVER 2003 (and up) Please go to Exchange System Manager      and navigate to the "Global Settings"

o b) Right Click on the "Message Delivery" and select "Properties".

o c) Please switch to the "Recipient Filtering" tab and check the box titled "Filter recipients who are not in the directory". Click on "OK"

FOR ALL OTHER SERVERS (Exchange 5.5, 2000 and so on)
1) Create a text file called validrecipients.txt
2) Write all of your valid email addresses into that file. One per line. MAKE SURE THAT YOU ENTER ALL EMAIL ADDRESSES regardless if they are protected by CME or not. Also make sure that you include all domains and other variations of your email addresses.
The file should look like this:
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
and so on...
3) Place that file into your CME mailboxes folder. This is usually c:Program FilesDigiPortal SoftwareCM Enterprisemailboxes
4)Stop and start your CME service.

Test your new feature by sending an email to an existing and non existing address and verify the results.

I'll never own a computer and an email account without using CHOICEMAIL! To me, using CHOICEMAIL protetection, is just as important as having an Anti-virus program. I've added CHOICEMAIL to my list of things needed when setting up a computer!
