CML currently costs around $34,000 per year to maintain.

It costs so much because we are the only system that is still email based and not just web based and that doesn't sell subscriber lists or embed hidden ads.

We have 24/7/365 backup with multiple servers and network connections.

44.5 million emails a year use a lot of bandwidth! :-)
