Hi, I'm running Small Business Server 2003 on a small domain with 35 computers.  One of my users gets a fairly constant stream of unwanted spam each day.  What can I do on the server side to eliminate this problem?

I don't know the details, but we're running Exchange 2002 and use Ironmail.  Last month, we blocked 1.4 Million Spam Emails - I hardly ever get spam at work.

Monthly service. Mail is filtered before it reaches your mail server. Users can access their account and retrieve false positives themselves. Also checks for Viruses. No Software to purchase, install, or keep updated.

trendmicro has a good product I've used in the past. t runs on the server, has many filter options & confidence settings, tag & deliver, quaratine, delete, etc. It replaces port 25 on your server & you set Exchange to another port. Our users are very happy with it.

Outlook 2003 has some really quite useful spam protection when used in conjuciton with Exchange Server 2003. My eMail address receives a good 100 spams per day, at least 90 of which end up in junk mail folder. My false positive count took a week of so to settle down and now I'm really not sure I can recall the last false positive that was triggered. That said, I'm still not so totally confident about false positives so haven't set it to delete spams!

Well worth a no-additional-cost trial, surely!
