Spam Filter Software
We currently have a spam filter in place which doesn't seem to be doing the job so we was wondering what software everyone uses. Also, what do you think of the software?
I've looked into:
Iomart - http://www.iomartcloud.com/mail-filtering
Altman - http://www.altman.co.uk/email-security/email-filtering/email-filtering-for-education
Censornet - http://www.censornet.com/en/products/mailsafe
They all seem fairly good.

Before now, I've just told exchange to use spamhaus' filters: SBL - IP Spam Filter - The Spamhaus Project for spam filtering, and it cuts spam down to 0.1% (based on what I used to get when running my own exchange server) (zen.spamhaus.org as an exchange provider)

A Barracuda spam firewall. We find it very effective and very little spam gets through.

We use a combination of the spamhaus blocklists (as per NickBro's post above), Dyn Email Gateway that runs all our incoming mail through SpamAssassin before it reaches our Exchange server, and the built-in Exchange 2010 anti-spam.
(Probably in that order of effectiveness.)

Altman is just a re-branded/resold product, can't remember exactly which now.

Iomart seemed to be very good when it was demonstrated to me.

IIRC Altman is webroot.
If you're a smoothwall user, you could try our spam filtering - its nothing fancy but it does do the business.

Webroot, yes, I think you're right.

I've used mailscanner with good effect: ::: Official Home Page for MailScanner - Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam Filter :::
Another thing I don't have to worry about with Google apps.

We have a cloud based solution that can integrate with your AD if needed. The charges vary depending on the quantity of mailboxes to clean. Cost is around £2.50 per year per mailbox, coming down much lower if the volume is over 500 mailboxes. Do feel free to contact us if you want to chat through some options - 0161 615 1270
