Spam trap using licenses [message #1140] Tue, 07 June 2005 21:34

Hi...

I'm evaluating NoSpamToday and one question that comes to mind is:

I have a Spam Trap set up with mulitple addresses list in it to learn from. Didn't take me long to notice that my used number of licenses went up once the spams started to hit the addresses I had listed. Is that right? A license is used for an address that isn't even able to receive the mail?

Also, is there a way for me to see what email addresses are currently using a license?

Thanks! Smile

Yes, it has been like this always, and for some time we have a feature request on our list to change this behavior. I can't promise you anything, but I would expect this to be done in one of the next upcoming releases.

The list of recipient addresses used is part of the daily admin mail, if you did not disable this feature. You can configure this in File->Global Settings.

Thats good news. Thank-you. I didn't think that it was fair to use a license for an account that won't even pass mail through.

Sorry, I should have clarified... Is there a way to tell what email addresses are being used at any point of the day. In otherwords, without having to wait until the next report is generated and emailed to you?

Thanks again..

The total number of addresses used shows up on the NoSpamToday! Admin
status tab. Displaying the list of addresses in realtime is possible in principle
and may be available in future releases if there is significant demand for this feature.
