    Haha, get our RBC to allow us? It is our county council that manages it and getting that would be impossible I fear (even being allowed to run our own mail server or connect to the RM EasyMail POP3 server isn't allowed)...

    I think you must have it quite easy if you think it is possible to get these sort of things to happen!

    I tried this - they said they would, so I went and spent a lot of money on a Sophos Applicance Solution. They then changed their mind and the applicance is now sat in the rack doing nothing.

    Under no circumstances will they switch any filtering off.

    They haven't turned it off ... we just have access to the admin page for our site and domains. We have turned it down a bit but we mainly use their filters ... but we control it. Once the new EMBC contract is sorted then we will review how much we turn off and how much we deal with in house.

    They cannot control the spam filtering at domain level - so we have no hope.

    Each individual mail box has an account that has to be managed as a single item.

    Great in theory because then everybody can manage it as they want - except all it really does is freak a lot of our staff out.

    There was one email that I wanted to be deleted from every spam mail box and the LEA do not have the facility to do it - the only option is to log in to each individual account one at a time (and you need the individual password for this - no admin override) and delete it. With 150 staff this makes it impossible.
