While I cannot speak of Exchange 2007, I have seen other email server vendors 
go one of 2 routes, either develop their own add in (usually less effective) or 
integrate with an OEM version of a 3rd party vendors product.

IMHO, you will be better off using a 3rd party product. Now saying that, MS has 
taken a number of steps in the last couple of years to become a qualified 
competitor for security products, mostly by buying 3rd party vendors.

See the pattern here.

Hello Exchange "Gurus,"

Our company is in the process of upgrading our Exchange Server from ver. 5.5 to 
the "latest and greatest."  Do any of you see a real need to choose Exchange 
Server 2007, instead of Exchange Server 2003?  Our company is very small (25 
mailboxes max) and doesn't require a lot of the "bells and whistles" which come 
with the "latest and greatest."  However, I did notice that ver. 2007 offers 
Anti-Spam as well as Anti-Virus solutions compared to ver. 2003.  For those who 
are running 2007, are the Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus solutions good enough NOT to 
install a 3rd party Anti-Virus / Anit-Spam solution?  I have a current support 
contract with GFI Mail Essentials.  How does Exchange 2007's Anti-Spam solution 
compare with GFI Mail Essentials ver. 12?

Thanks for any input!
