i think this thread doesnt belong in stable@, but questions@ - i dont see how this refers to one particular version of freebsd in particular.

Caveat : I only suffer plesk in Linux, but the issues are very similar.
I dont know of any way to bypass the licensing limitations... i strongly suggest if you walked into those you simply get rid of plesk now.
I am not sure for SA, but there is a version of qscan that supports passing the email to Clamav:
Maybe there is something out there to support SA? Or simply configure qmail to support SA - you wont get an interface to manage SA from plesk, but you aren't missing much, IMHO - most of our users dont care about custom spam/ham , but rely on the system wide bayes list.
(qmail is another reason to move away from plesk, imho... :( )
