You didn't notice this when the pricing changes from 2.x to 3.0? That's
when I bailed for NTmail. I'm quite happy with it, other than the rumor
that they will move their NTList product (a bundled part) to per-mailbox
pricing as well, when they upgrade from 3.03d to v4.0 (quite the major
upgrade from what I hear). Also, the per-mailbox pricing is a LOT more
reasonable than $99 per 100 boxes, and the flat upgrade pricing of $495
makes the decision quite easy.
