I have to agree with Doug, Postini works great and is more cost effective in
a small to midsize environment.

I think I should add a qualifier to my earlier statement. If you don't have
many users then something like postini maybe the way to go (we actually use
it where I work now.about 100 users), but at my previous position it made
much more sense to buy a $3000 barracuda for 6000 users than $4 x 12months x
6000 users. 

 

The $3000 model that we had processes between 90,000 and 120,000 messages a
day with no problems. Even the threshold set to the default of 3 out of 10,
and Bayesian filtering not even used, 78% of our messages dropped before
hitting the exchange server. Talk about a cheap way to cut load and increase
life on a mail server.

 

 

But again, that would have been a little expensive for 100 users

I would almost bet the barracuda will cost you less in time AND labor than
others. And it works great!!! Check it out. http://www.barracudanetworks.com
