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
Spam and distributions lists

If you got a spam message in your inbox, check the internet headers of the message and find the X-ChoiceMail Accepted: reason header.

This header will explain why the message came through.

If you are using Outlook as your email client - simply right-click on the message and select "Options" from the popup menu. The headers are inside the "Internet Headers" field.

If the X-ChoiceMail Accepted Reason header does not appear in your message there are two possible explanations:

1) The email address to which the message was sent is not protected by ChoiceMail

2) You have more than one MX record and messages are coming directly to your corporate mail server and bypassing ChoiceMail.

Normally, (1) above is the usual reason and the source of the problem is either a misspelled email address or an internal distribution list.

Please check your email address and make sure that it is properly spelled.

Distribution lists.
If your company has a distribution list called "list_foo" (say) with three members and that group email address is called
This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
then that email address must itself be protected by ChoiceMail. If it is not - the three members of that group can get spam through that group email address.
