Yes, editing scripts for MailMarshal is a daily duty!

"GFI's offering or MailMarshal however it doesn't  always catch newly
crafted spam mails until you have altered or added new filters (im sure
other members on this list could give indications on how much they need
to maintain the text sensor scripts to block new spam waves)."

That is where the iHateSpam Server Edition shines, we DO catch the newly
formatted spams and update the Spam Definitions, much like your AV does:

5 minute setup and pretty much forget it, except that you will now be
getting much less spam by 95%.

This tool smokes GFI and NetIQ, but.. I 'm biased. :) Our customers
speak for themselves though.

You could get a spam shield like GFI's offering or MailMarshal however
it doesn't  always catch newly crafted spam mails until you have altered
or added new filters (im sure other members on this list could give
indications on how much they need to maintain the text sensor scripts to
block new spam waves).

The other alternative is to pay for a managed service to receive your
email through, like messagelabs. They are obviously as about as up to
date as you can be on their virus and spam filtering as it's the core of
their business model.

Either way its gonna cost money.
