Robin:

Of course we are not interested. This is a one-man shop with an annual
budget of about $50K. Why you put out the teaser on the Spamassassin User
list is totally beyond me.

Your "entry" level definition is very poorly defined. You'd get a lot more
small shops if you found a pricing structure that made some sense. For the
1,000 good email messages I receive each day, there are probably 25,000
connections attempted. Most small shops are going to be in this range.

You should either have a reasonable cut-off for the freebie, structure your
pricing reasonably, or not entice sysops (like myself) to go through all the
trouble of installing and testing your product, just to find it can not be
licensed at any reasonable level. When I read the 10K limit, I thought "Hey,
that's ten times what I receive - I'll try it!"

Hi Dan,



Traffic Control is enterprise software and as a result we charge a minimum
of $2500.00. This is so that we can provide the level of support that
enterprise customers expect. Please let me know if you are still
interested. Thanks.



Sincerely,



Robin Pollak

I have about 17K connections (exclusive of Dictionary attacks culled by my
MTA) resulting in about 1 K valid messages per day. You told me that was
over the "limit" for the freebie and you'd get back to me with pricing info.
Should I contact Ken?

Hi Dan,



This will provide Traffic Control for up to 10,000 connections a day. Any
pricing is set to individual needs. If you have a client with more than
10,000 connections a day, I would be happy to have our CEO contact you to
discuss specific needs. Thanks!



Sincerely,
