While I cannot speak of Exchange 2007, I have seen other email server
vendors go one of 2 routes, either develop their own add in (usually less
effective) or integrate with an OEM version of a 3rd party vendors product.


IMHO, you will be better off using a 3rd party product. Now saying that, MS
has taken a number of steps in the last couple of years to become a
qualified competitor for security products, mostly by buying 3rd party


See the pattern here.

Hello Exchange "Gurus,"


Our company is in the process of upgrading our Exchange Server from ver. 5.5
to the "latest and greatest."  Do any of you see a real need to choose
Exchange Server 2007, instead of Exchange Server 2003?  Our company is very
small (25 mailboxes max) and doesn't require a lot of the "bells and
whistles" which come with the "latest and greatest."  However, I did notice
that ver. 2007 offers Anti-Spam as well as Anti-Virus solutions compared to
ver. 2003.  For those who are running 2007, are the Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus
solutions good enough NOT to install a 3rd party Anti-Virus / Anit-Spam
solution?  I have a current support contract with GFI Mail Essentials.  How
does Exchange 2007's Anti-Spam solution compare with GFI Mail Essentials
ver. 12?  


Thanks for any input!
