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.
