        Four? That's great, I didn't know that. I'm fortunate enough to have 
our messages go thru Postini (McAfee plus...), and then Sophos here (firewall), 
and then Symantec (desktop), providing at least three libraries (likely more 
with your information.) Sophos also gets defs really fast- I think one reason 
being they're in UK and are 12 hours ahead of US in daytime threats and 
responses. I know sometimes a threat emerges and it's already patched (Sophos) 
before I or U.S. media catch wind of it...

McAfee is only one of four algorithms that they use to screen for viruses.  
They are also partners with these companies so they will get the pattern file 
updates long before the average customer will.  When I say long I am talking in 
some cases hours.  But with the way things are going, that can be an eternity.

When you look at the big picture costs to maintain in-house:

Additional bandwidth
Security (allowing anonymous SMTP connections) Hardware costs Software costs 
Maintenance's costs Anti-virus subscription costs Cost of downtime Spooling 
costs Setup Upgrades Change management Power Human resources, benefits, sick 
days, hit by a bus, stress (taking spams personally)

Etc...

As you know, it's a business decision though... most of my clients use Postini 
and love it, others have made a decision to bring it in-house
- in which case there are a long list of options.

...D

P.S. Ralph, I can resell Postini for around the $2 mark - depending on how many 
users.
