Re: Whatcha' using for a anti-spam solution?

I'm not sure what you mean by a smaller network. But for our site we are using a combination of things. We have a SLES 10 Mail Relay Server in our DMZ running sendmail along with Mailscanner running SpamAssassin and ClamAV. This is stopping around 80 - 90% of e-mail before it gets through the DMZ. Spam Assassin is set up in a pretty basic fashion but is doing SURBL checking. Then we have a GWIA running inside our network running GWAVA4 along with Kaspersky AV. GWAVA seems to pick anything that SA missed along with oversize attachemnts and bad words.

Overall it is pretty effective though we did have some trouble getting GWAVA working as we wanted to originally.

We have had 18500 emails into the system today (it is 1:13 PM currently, so just over half a day gone) of which SA stopped 15500 as spam. As best we can tell it is pretty accurate. We have had no reports of legit email not getting through that can be attributed to SA.

In a previous life I did use Guinevere 2 along with SA on a Windows NT box and that was pretty good back then. But the volume of spam does seem a lot higher now.

Cheers

That page is very dated. I mean virus and spam accounting for a full
50% of messages? Try like 92% 🙂

Hrmmmmm............Looks like you can use it for only inbound. That's
more of what I'd be interested in, as I don't want to have to relay my
outbound mail somewhere.

assp.sourceforge.net

Awesome...and free.
Been using it for years. Went from 700+ spams a day
in my inbox to zero. Love it. Probably doesn't have
some of the features of your more fancy systems, but
a little user training and an occasional domain whitelist
and you're good to go.

Even though they messed around with the interface, the product still is
pretty solid. They've even glommed on IM scanning, though we're not doing
that.

Ironport C-series.
Blocks about 97% of incoming spam

But it's a bit pricey for anything other than a medium to
large/enterprise business.
