They don't "see it" that way. They "see it" as a "per e-mail address"
(not even per mailbox) thing. Just as they have every right to see
"their" point of view as "correct", you have every right to believe
your point of view.

FWIW I happen to agree with *you*, but I recognize their right to sell
(or not sell) their software as they see fit, just as I recognize your
right to take your business elsewhere, such as with ClamAV.

Which I also like better, for other reasons.
