It appears that once the license count is reached, NST stops filtering ALL e-mail. Is this correct? It should at least remember the e-mail addresses that were used in "license counting" and filter those.

NoSpamToday! keeps a list of recipient addresses it has already seen.
If a recipient address matches an entry in this list, and if your mail server accepts this recipient address, it counts against the number of licensed addresses.
Recipient addresses in excess of the licensed count are not checked for spam.
You can also explicitly specify a list of recipient addresses (or address patterns) where spam checking is enabled.

In the NST Admin wizard on the "Configuration" tab, double-click on the first filter in the chain.
Enter the recipient addresses you want to filter mails for into the "Address Patterns to Enable Filter" list.
Remember to activate "Use Same Address Settings As Previous Filter" in each subsequent filter.

I find this sometimes happens when we're being Joe Job'd - so many "bounces" are arriving with random mail addresses that it eats up the available licenses. I've had to resort to setting up a Scheduled Task to restart NST nightly to get round this.

It is preferable not to accept undeliverable mail at all, and to bounce it immediately.

This reduces the load on your server, and there is no "backscatter" (caused by your server trying to send a delivery-failure to some innocent 3rd party whose address has been used as the sender address).

See here for instructions how to configure your server:

http://www.byteplant.com/support/nospamtoday/howtorejectexchange.html

If your mail server can not be configured to reject undeliverable mail, you can use the "Open Relay Protection" feature in the NoSpamToday! Admin wizard to restrict the set of recipient addresses to those you really want.
The address list can be configured on the third page of the SMTP proxy wizard.
