30 Day Evaluation

You can freely test the software, conduct performance and compatibility testing as if you were running the high-end, all-included, user and domain unlimited version. To activate the software after license purchase, simply enter the license key- no need to reinstall or configure from scratch. To prevent service disruption in case of payment processing delays, the software will work for 30 additional days after the evaluation period is over, only the administration GUI won't be accessible.

  • No feature limits
  • No domain or user amount limits
  • No need to reinstall or reconfigure
  • Additional 30 days safe net
  • For pre-production upgrades

All-Inclusive Price

List price includes the software and 365 days of Maintenance. For the ultimate investment protection, you can decide for additional year of Maintenace for a fraction of the initial price. Price of Maintenance is equal to today's upgrade cost. There's additional discount when an extra year of Maintenance is acquired together with a new purchase.
Maintenance covers:

  • Upgrades to the latest version
  • Minor updates and hot fixes
  • Subscriptions to Anti-Spam AutoUpdate technology
  • Subscription to Anti-Virus AutoUpdate technology
  • Email technical support

No Expirations

After Maintenance period is over, upgrades won't be allowed and updates will not be processed, otherwise the software will continue to work. Any version obtained as new or covered by Maintenance is for lifetime, it never expires. There are no hidden or recurring fees, no royalties or extra charges to 3rd parties.

  • Lifetime license
  • No recurring fees
  • No hidden fees or extra costs
  • No royalties
  • No opt-in


Continued Maintenance is around 30% of the new purchase price, depending on the module.


When upgrades are purchased just for the mail server license, other existing modules (except Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam) will be deactivated if not renewed together, but can be updated anytime later to be used again.
