you can create a nice filter with ISA if you are running that. check out the 
isa site, they have a lot of nice stuff. we are in the process of doing that 
right now.  we are having problems with spam taking over our companies 
mailboxes... it sounds like this option will work for us, but of course so far 
there is nothing to totally stop it.

So far I've viewed what feels like at least 50 spam filter links and I've 
basically left it at that. The idea of preventing all spam from entering the 
network is a good dream but this is starting point. Like I said a small office 
with less than 50 users; no need to break the bank. So something that can be 
implemented and that simply works.

1.      You will never prevent all spam from getting to users inboxes without 
false positives. Do not let any one tell you different.
2.      They are both good products, although one has very loud marketing.
3.      I have trialed GFI, and the included keylists created a lot of false 
positives "out of the box."
4.      The war on spam is not simple nor cheap. 
5.      Since you only have 25 users, have you thought about using a 3rd party 
in what is called E-Mail Gateway service or Store and Forward service?

Anyone have any points they'd care to share as to why they'd choose one of 
these products over the other? The need is to have a centralized spam filter 
that prevents any and all spam from making it to the users inbox. Also don't 
want to have to sit and add entry after entry of items to be filtered. GFI wins 
on the pricing being that I only have 25 users. 
I really would like to know how most feel on this. 
 
Thanks
