So if we want to compare, we still can, and is still more expensive.


Really? Based on what numbers? Did you add AV cost? Anti-spam cost?

like email, the bosses want to see the support contract.If there is not 24/7 phone support, whether it is ever used or not, you can bet if something *does* happen you may not have a job.


True enough. Since I am the boss I do want to see support contracts although the exact nature of it does depend on what in-house skills you have and how critical email is to operations.
