I know Postini has some great capability - I'm just wondering how comprehensive the filtering of SSN's really works out to be.
You know what they say, if you try to idiot-proof the system, someone will always build a better idiot.

We use POSTINI spam\virus filter which is a subscribed to service and they give you the ability to set up OUTBOUND content management where it will search outgoing email for SSN's.
