    Hello --

    I am a newbie regarding Exchange and spam filtering applications for it.

    A client with a 3-station network asked me to help them find a
    replacement for Postini. The application can be commercial, open
    source, shareware, or freeware.

    Can anyone suggest a mail filtering app for Exchange with which they
    have been satisfied?

    Thanks for any help.

    Just 3 workstations and they spent a bundle on Exchange? (rolls eyes)
    If they are throwing away money on over-sized solutions then I'm sure
    they won't mind throwing more away on the commercial anti-spam
    software, too.

    There are several microsoft.public.*.exchange.* newsgroups. The folks
    probably know lots about various anti-spam solutions that integrate or
    operate with Exchange. If you have Exchange 2003, you can use IMF
    (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/downloads/2003/imf/default.mspx).
    You never mentioned WHICH version you, er, they have.

    You don't have to spend a bundle to get Exchange. You can get Windows
    Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition which includes Exchange
    Server 2003 for less than $250 (USD).

    We've moved all of our clients from Symantec Mail Security for Exchange
    to GFI Mail Security and GFI Mail Essentials. If you set it up correctly
    the users can control what is defined as Spam, While Listed, Black
    Listed, NOT SPAM, lists, and you also get full virus checking (multiple
    engines) of all in/out bound email. Lots of other features too.

    I should mention that it takes a couple weeks (depending on email
    volume) for it to self train. As an example, we get more than 2800
    emails per day this week, and I've only seen 1 spam in my in box - all
    others have been identified properly.

    It has a nice feature that auto-whitelists people you send email too.

    "for less than $250". Hmm, where did you find that price?
