    Re: Spam

    If you want an exchange addon based solution I'd suggest GFI Mail Essentials.

    http://www.gfi.com/mes/

    If you want to contract out your mail scanning, look at MessageLabs.

    http://www.messagelabs.com/products/...anti_spam.aspx

    Their servers sit between your Exchange box and the internet and scan everything coming in/out. Much like a DIY Linux box would.

    BTW, how many users do you have using Exchange? Because that'll affect the cost a lot.

    Re: Spam

    In previous jobs I've used both MessageLabs and GFI's solutions.

    I don't have an Exchange system here, we can't afford the licensing costs. Most things are Linux around here. As such, we use Zimbra instead of Exchange with another Linux box running Exim + Spamassassin.

    All for the low low price of the hardware.

    Sophos don't have a version available for 2007 AFAIK. MS Antigen comes with 2007 doesn't it?

    Re: Spam

    would you say software solutions are better or would a hardware soloution be better? Like Symantec Mail Security which is a decided hardware solution.

    Personally, I like the Linux option and Message Labs best.

    Re: Spam

    Use No Spam Today, which uses SpamAssasin. Cheap option - implemented it in the summer works very well.
    Previously used Clearswifts Mailsweeper for Smtp when in business, too expensive when i looked at it here for the budget i had available.
