    SPAM Filtering

    We've recently switched ISP and we now no longer have a layer of mail filtering from our ISP. My mail server has a version of SPAM assassin build in but I'm noticing an increase in the ammount of SPAM actually getting through so I am currently looking at something else to add another level of filtering.

    I'm only in the tentative investigation stage, and I also need to see if I can configure my the SPAM filter on the mail server to perform a bit better but I was wondering what others were using or could reccomend. Paid or free it doens't matter, I'm just interested.

    Spam Assassin (invoked via Mail Scanner) is pretty good depending upon if you're using pyzor, dcc etc.

    Might be handy to show up your config (or parts of it)

    I believe you're a smoothie user - ask your sales person to turn on spam filtering for 30 days?

    Done that Just need to wait until the start of term has died down when I can actually get it set up. Whislt it's certainly the easiest solution it's not the only one and I'd be remiss if I didn't do some investigation.

    Heh. Glad you've done that.
    Presuming you are on exchange, your other "most obvious" candidates are those that live on-server... another appliance for mail filtering would seem excessive.
