I think that you could build an asp page that looks at the users IP... If
the user is local, then check the account that they are logged in on. If
the account is inside of the grace period... ie, after the expire date, but
before expire plus extension, or some variation, then redirect to the
paynow page.

I don't have one built, but it would be concievable to build this into the
home page. Unfortunately, you don't get users who don't use your home
page. An alternative would be something like an ICQ watch program. On
connection, it would connect to a web page on your server and get the
account status and any "sysop" or system messages that could be posted into
a special email account for user notifications. It could be developed into
a very full-featured module that could be installed automatically by the
IEAK.... Hint, Hint... Some enterprising programmer might look at this.
There are a number of Wrapper programs out there already for IE and
netscape. I would not be very difficult to get one of these to provide
this functionality. You could also use the Channel protocol to push
newsletters or customer web pages to the customer.
