thanks to all who responded to my request on spam filters... the
organization has around 100 users, with a T1 connection... the linux setup
sounds interesting... are there any links available for "how tos".

We use a linux box in front of Exchange and use SpamAssassin and some other
neat linux tools to pre-filter the garbage before it ever gets to our
exchange server.  It an open source product so it is "free".  Free means the
software doesn't have a price, but you still need a box and some linux
skills to set it up.  We have been using linux and SpamAssassin for about 3
years now with excellent results.  TCO is extremely low, as there are no
subscription fees, and the hardware is an older windows server that has been
re-tasked with running linux.  If you ever wanted to add linux to your skill
set, this is an excellent project with which to do so.  Linux is not for
everything, but it does email and email processing really well.

I know this has been addressed before, but I'll ask again...

What is the current feeling on anti-spam products for Exchange?

I've gone from using nothing, to Exchange IMF, to Symantec products etc...
And am just curious what others feel is the best and most cost-effective

Thanks much!
