    Linux box running Postfix and SpamAssassin sat inbetween the Exchange box and the big bad outside world.

    Sounds like a good plan. better still, rip out the exchange, its not really suitable for schools.

    We use the free versions of http://www.gfi.com/mailsecurity/ and http://www.gfi.com/mes/

    These are GFI Mailsecurity and Mail Essentials. And we use the Exchange IMF for filtering. Been ok so far here.

    For what Exchange costs this should come as standard.

    By that logic for what Windows costs, it should come with Office as standard.

    Mind you, for what Linux costs, you do get Oo.org as standard.

    I use the exchagne IMF - Intelligent Message Filter free from MSFT Downloads. Also have Sophos Puremessage Anti-V & Anti-S on it and that helps as well.

    I wondered the same if a school is a complete microsoft shop then the skills/time to learn/use *nix solutions is probably greater than the cost of implementing exchange anyway.

    Re: Email fitlering Software

    Geoff, what version of linux would you recommend to a complete newbie for installing spamassasin on?

    I tried following some instructions for installing gentoo but i got an error saying kernel panic.

    I was hoping there was a fool proof way of installing linux somewhere out there.

    @dezt

    I'd recommend you start with a VM image of Centos or Ubuntu server to practice on
    http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/directory/

    also look at MailScanner - it is built upon spamassassin with antivirus

    Try Policy Patrol - 30% discount for education... less than £600 for 1000 users and very good - have been trialling it for a month and seen my spam almost disappear. http://www.policypatrol.com/Email-Filter.htm
