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 solution.

Thanks much!
