We bought a Barrucuda appliance. I wanted something in house that I can
control and didn't have to change my MX record. It sits inline with my
mail flow and it even bounces the receiptants name from emails off my
Active-Directory via LDAP to ensure I don't get junk emails and only my
exchange server receives emails for valid users only. It also has
Bayasian filtering and a anti-virual subscription blocker as well. It
was the cheapest out there and its very nice. It comes with Outlook
plugins I can load on users computers so for the 1's-2's that make it
through, they block themselves while it communicates with my barracude
to let it know about the new spam email that made it through, so it can
block it if it sees it again.  I used to waste 3-4 hours a day on this.
Now it sends me emails with reports and I spend about 1-2 hours a week
on it. If that.

do not need to monitor for hours each day (i.e., false positives, new
