One comment about GFI; It is not wise to take action based upon a single
word or phrase. My clients exchange server that I loaded a trial version of
GFI on was catching so many False Positive I had to turn of keyword
filtering.

 

A much better approach is a weighted one, in which several tests (in my case
on my mail server 45 tests) are run and each assigns a weight. Action is
then taken on overall weight.

We also use GFI, Essentials & Security. Very good service. Almost too strict
with mail out of the box, but with tweaking, it works wonders...

I had tried them all and I choose GFI. 

I had tested it for 60 days, maintained the DB. It's doing a great job. I
stop every day about 800 spam mails, I have 47 users in my organization and
they are very happy.

Okay everyone...

 

   I need your valued opinions.  I am currently using McAfee Webshield 4.5
MR1A as a SPAM filtering utility and it has crapped out for the last time!
I have talked management into funding and purchasing a new product to be
implemented within the week.  This is a quick turnaround, but I guess they
are ready to start recieving mail again.  Any way, I am caught between GFI
Mail Essentials and Mail Security or the new hyped up product 'I Hate Spam'.
What are your opinions?

 

   Currently I am leaning towards GFI because they have a longer track
record, but I am open to suggestions.

 

Thanks,

Chris
