> Someone recently mentioned Mail Frontier as an anti-virus, anti-spam appliance for incoming email.
We have two m500 appliances here .. love them. Literally out of the box
and ready-to-go in an hour or so.
(I trumpet opensource louder than anyone else here, but no such monkey
exists for free that's *this* easy)
I could happily provide (off-list) CSV files of our stats but to
summarize, the Mailfrontier box nicks about 70% of incomming email as
spam. Our user community was *very* happy.
The Mailfrontier box easily integrates into MS A/D or other LDAP sources
to permit per-user configuration (eg: they log in themselves and
customize their settings) .. this solved the few whiners that didn't
want their email "filtered" or wanted to block something individually.
Also : the Mailfrontier folks will work with you to spread the
purchase/support cost out over your ammortization period for hardware.
We have ~30k users and about 8 different email systems behind the m500.
