    Can anyone recommend a spam filtering service? We're getting a few spams at
    work these days and users aren't happy.

    Death2Spam has been suggested but I'd like to get some other opinions as
    well.

    If you want a serious solution that just works -

    http://safenz.net/safenz-dns-email.pdf

    This system pre-filters everything for your domain and can be set up in
    hours with no changes at your end except your DNS. It is over 99%
    effective.

    ** shameless plug as I built it **

    Looks good, but. Why do you quote prices ex-GST? Do you have any
    customers that don't pay GST?

    Personally I would reintroduce hanging, quartering and flogging at the
    cart's tail for any company that ever quotes prices ex-GST. It stinks,
    and the smell pollutes your business.

    Wake up Philip - GST registered entities effectivey don't pay GST. As
    this is a product aimed more towards the business market it makes
    perfect sense to price it exc-GST

    Depends on your setup. Try www.firetrust.org if you run sendmail, qmail or
    exchange servers, or the desktop version is at www.firetrust.com.

    Kiwi too!

    What rubbish.

    The main thing is to have companies CLEARLY state prices are not
    including GST, which reading the PDF this site/offering does.

    Thanks Steve, I'm looking into it. We run a different mail server so I'm not
    sure how well it will work.

    :), that's why I didn't hide the fact. I find business works a lot more
    smoothly when there is nothing to hide.

    What??? You may want to check your facts with the IRD on that one.
    Businesses are able to claim back GST on products or services pruchased for
    a business.

    So why don't they show both. This is no different from the airlines
    quoting fares "plus taxes & surcharges". It's bullshit. it's the kinds
    of "headline figure" promotion that makes me very wary of doing business
    with them, whether I'm GST registered or not, because they are
    effectively lying to me about the price I'm going to have to write the
    cheque for.
