Whoops, I must have missed the initial post on this.

So do I take it that the current free rsync feed we use for our mail  
servers will be ending soon? As a fairly large ISP (2 million  
mailboxes, up to 20 million mails per day) the new charges will cost  
us around $20,000/per annum. I'm really very appreciative of the work  
done by SURBL and will certainly lobby for us to continue with the  
feed. Unfortunately these things are determined by the corporate bean  
counters :).

Can I have some more formal information about when the current rsync  
feed will terminate? Also some more detail on support/service  
guarantees/escalation procedures would be useful when putting forward  
the case for funding.
