Anti-spam recommendations

Does anyone have a hosted anti-spam that they really, really like? I
have to make a recommendation in the next few weeks for a replacement
for our Guinevere, and since we're quite little, I'd rather have
somebody else do all the work for me. I've read the brochures from
Postini, Spamstopshere.com, and MailFoundry and they all look about the
same for a similar price. Does anybody have any good or bad comments
about them or anyone else?

One of my clients use Appriver and really likes them. I don't know the
pricing.

Used Postini for years and it worked well right up until the pdf
attachment spams started.

With redcondor now and although it isn't perfect it seems to be working ok.

Re: Anti-spam recommendations

We rave about Mimecast.... The retention piece is especially nice.... If
your system is down your users can still send and receive mail.... Very cool

While I've never used it, I've heard good things about Postini.

We use Postini here. It seems to work okay.

Re: Anti-spam recommendations


Kathryn,

We're a small firm also (>100) and we use MXlogic. It's about
$12/user/mo, but it's far less time to administer than when we were
using GWAVA (back in the 3.0 days). If you're just looking at costs,
it's hard to justify the annual expense versus an appliance. I looked
at it as something the users should be doing, not me having to
constantly "tweak" the filters and review false-positives. I can't say
it eliminates 100% of the SPAM, but it's pretty close to 98% I'd say.

Re: Anti-spam recommendations

LOVE Postini. Best thing since sliced bread. In fact I'm going to name my
next kid "Postini". Although Ted was right about the PDF spam sneaking in
for a while, rather frustrating. Postini has since fixed that and PDF spam
is no longer an issue. Besides I figure with Google buying Postini out a
couple months ago they'll have some serious capital behind them from now on.

Re: Anti-spam recommendations

I too have heard good things about appriver. So many, in fact, that I would
recommend them to clients if they became of need of that type of service.

Re: Anti-spam recommendations

I've liked Mailfrontier (now Sonicwall) until recently. Their support has
become unusual (I hope they rectify that).

Best thing is the users unjunk any real mail, control their own
whitelists/blacklists, and it uses ldap for authentication.
