We just evaluated No Spam Today and are very happy with the results. However, the way licensing is done seems to be not quite adequate to us.

We discovered that, after a couple of days already, we need almost 4 times the number of licenses than the number of human email users, because:

- Some email users with long names use short aliases exclusively, but the email system sometimes uses the full names for return address, so effectively counting as two licenses each.

- Almost any user that has left the company still gets at least some scant mail, even though his mailbox was deleted long ago, unnecessarily piling up the number of used licenses.

- Spammers that make up random recipients at our email domain would probably open the gate for spam again by exceeding the license limit, no matter how many licenses the customer has bought.

In my opinion, this licensing scheme is not practical and I think it would be very hard to convince our customers of a 20 user company that they need a 100 user license and still can not be sure to exceed this limit.

Is there a way to deal with this problem?
