    Wow, very nice deal Alberto.

    I think I'll have to be smart and wait to see how it actually works first though.

    The most important new feature for me and I think alot of others is the auto-suspend feature.

    - Is this a fully automated api that will automatically go into a que ready for the command to go to whm and actually suspend the account?
    - Are there overdue invoices sent out to the clients at set by you intervals?
    - Where is this type of activity logged? Is it in the ticketing system or is it a seperate section?

    I've used ClientExec since early on in the 2.x series, and it's amazing! I can't wait for 2.8.0 to come out of beta. It seems like with every new release are new, amazing, and very useful features.

    Do you have a template like awbs so we can use a whole web site?

    Nafadya: You are the first person I've heard compliment AWBS's template system.
    I really don't like it either and hope that no one ever adopts this same system.

    How about an answer to my questions Alberto?

    Here's the way auto suspend works:
    The auto suspend is implemented as a plugin service which runs by cron. You can view accounts that are pending suspension in the area where the service is configured. The accounts in that list will be suspended upon the next run of that service. When the accounts are suspended it will mark them as suspended in Clientexec and suspend them on the server (cpanel, plesk, etc). When the service finishes it sends an email with a list of the suspended accounts by email to your notification email address.

    There is a service that will send overdue invoice reminders to customers that works similar to that of the auto suspend.

    Thanks Mike,

    I assume you're the same Mike from ce-talk.
    I can't wait to try it out more when it goes to demo on CE.

    Do we have an idea of when it will be released officially?

    two months of our leased license for free
    Sounds like a pretty awesome deal, but

    1 month off leased license: TL2006
    So its one month or two?

    And the coupon is not working .... was it only good for one day ?
    Three out of four people make up 75 percent of the population

    The promotion was for Thanksgiving Day is why the coupon is no longer working. If anyone has purchased using the coupon they can contact us regarding the 2-month vs. 1-month. We will honor the 2-month statement.

    Are you going to have a promotion for the upcomming Christmas holiday? I attempted to purchase it through this promotion but something happened and it didn't go through. I tried again and by that time the code was expired.

    There might be something but not the same deal. 2.8 is coming out and since it is a new release will not really have a special associated to it. That is the reason for the pre release special so that you can get a special price prior to a fresh release.

    But we will have something. Most likely though for the old customers that have inactive support preventing them to upgrade to the latest release.
