Topic: Spider License Questions
Since there is no free trial version anymore I did some checks with the Licensing as well.
Here are some questions: If I tell spider my EMail domain it seems to count all mail addresses from that domain and based on this information computes the number of mailboxes. From my point of view this seems to be incorrect.
First: mail address != mailbox. Some ISP's have the ability to define more mail addresses than mailboxes. In our case this means that firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com all point to the same mailbox but spider seems to count this as 4 boxes!
Other point: I did import our mail archive currently situated on an IMAP mailbox at our ISP. Every employee that we ever had that used his own mail address seems to be counted as one mailbox. But obviously employees change over the years and this leads to some mail addresses that are no longer valid while others were activated. The number of employees at one time never exceeded let's say 8 people, but in the time of 6 years we had 16 different employees. And although I imported just one mailbox AFAICT spider seems to count this as 16...
Can you elaborate on this topic?
