Priority support includes quicker email response times and telephone support during UK office hours, as well as software upgrades. Remote support for troubleshooting and fixing problems is also included during UK office hours.
Priority Support costs 50% of the full licence price per year, with a minimum price of £100 (+ VAT if applicable). Priority Support can be purchased even when the previous software maintenance or support has expired and will start from the purchase date.
Note that Priority Support does not include the cost of us telephoning you if you have a problem, so please don't email us asking us to call you back. If this is necessary to you for some reason, then please contact us for a customised quote. You can telephone us on 01484 855800.Buy Priority Support
Single Support incident
If you are outside of maintenance or don't want to purchase a priority support contract, but have an urgent need for support, you can purchase a single support incident (including telephone/remote support if necessary) for £20.00 per incident for recent versions of VPOP3 (v6 or later), or £50.00 per incident for earlier versions of VPOP3.
This charge is for assisting you with a single issue. We cannot guarantee a solution, since the problem may not be related to VPOP3, or it may be a known issue which is fixed in a later version of VPOP3 if you are using an old version.
Note that a single paid incident does not include the cost of us telephoning you if you have a problem, so please don't email us asking us to call you back. If this is necessary to you for some reason, then please contact us for a customised quote. You can telephone us on 01484 855800.
Also, note that a single paid incident does not include the cost to recover a corrupted database. We can help with that, but it is charged on a time basis because it can be very time consuming and it is normally caused by other problems, such as faulty hardware, third party software, etc. See this knowledgebase article for more details.Buy Single incident for v6 or later for £20.00
Buy Single incident for v5 or earlier for £50.00.
