Costs (per computer):

  • $125.00 (USD) for 1 year
  • $230.00 (USD) for 2 years
  • $300.00 (USD) for 3 years
  • $400.00 (USD) for 4 years
  • $500.00 (USD) for 5 years


You can download ZixMail’s Outlook plug-in from their site at http://www.zixcorp.com/solutions/zixmail_buy.php. You get a 30-day trial period before you need to pay for anything.
