Hi Phil,

You have a number of options, and I'm sure that the other guys will add their views to your comments.

Personally we use a Cisco Ironport solution (appliance based) and found it to be excellent.

For a cloud-based solution you could look at Mimecast, though I don't know how great their GroupWise skills are!

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

I'm biased, but have a look at GWAVA. And yes there are cloud versions
available.

One customer went with McAfee/MXLogix that had some issues until we
figured the trick of telling support at the beginning of an issue that
"please disable autopilot, we are NOT running Exchange" as they were
slow to clue in otherwise. Otherwise it has been working well, just
doesn't have the range of options Postini had

Symantec's Mail Gateway is another one a single PO customer is using
fairly well in both physical and virtual appliance.

Barracuda for SMTP AV and anti-spam ( We are happy with it )
McAfee for desktop AV ( It can't keep out a determined moth, avoid like the plague )
