Saké Mail is licensed per server, with three different options based on the number of users supported(1) and the number of skins supported(2). For each server that Saké Mail runs on(3), a runtime license for an installation with only one skin costs $1 USD per user, sold either as a 500 user license or a 1,000 user license. An unlimited user license for one server is $2,000 USD.
Each installation can support additional skins, if necessary. A runtime license to support each additional skin costs half of the price of the base license. For example, a single-server license for 500 users costs $500 USD. Adding an additional skin to the license costs $250 USD, bringing the total to $750. Each additional server works the same way. A two-server, single-skin license for 1,000 users, for example, would cost $1,500 USD.
To illustrate, the following table illustrates the final price for Saké Mail configurations on a single server, varying the number of users and skins:
Likewise, the following table illustrates the final price for Saké Mail configurations that support only one skin, varying the number of users and servers:
We offer full credit for all of our previous customers for upgrades. If you are a MailMan customer and you would like to use Saké Mail, we offer full credit for your original MailMan purchase price. For example, if you purchased MailMan Standard Edition from us two years ago for $250 USD and you would like to now upgrade to a single server, single skin, 500 user Saké Mail license, normally $500 USD, your final cost would be $250 USD.
Similarly, if you want to upgrade your Saké Mail license from a $500 USD single server, single skin, 500 user license to an unlimited license, normally $2,000 USD, your total cost would be $1,500 USD.

(1) Each user is counted only during the time when they are actually logged in, and for up to an hour after they are logged out or after their last activity (since many users never bother to log out of web applications). After a user has been logged out or inactive for one hour, they are no longer counted against the license total. An unlimited user license simply does not monitor the number of users.
(2) A skin is a feature that allows Saké applications to support more than one interface simultaneously, similar to a web server's virtual domain functionality. For more information see the Saké customization documentation.
(3) A single server is defined as a combination of physical machine, IP address, and port number. Two physical machines serving a web site together with Saké Mail support is considered two servers, for instance. One single machine acting as a virtual host for two different web sites, each equipped with Saké Mail, is considered two servers. One single machine that serves two different web sites on two different port numbers, each with Saké Mail support, is considered two servers.
