By these, do you mean Postini and Tumbleweed?
 Sentian N2H2, SurfControl, and Connectotel all require upkeep on your part--increased administrative duties to increase production.
Tumbleweed falls a little less in that category because it is a self-maintained appliance.
Postini requires almost NO ADMINISTRATION: in fact, when you need to go to it, it's because you want to unspool after a local server issue.

Postini and Tumbleweed block phishing altogether--especially Postini.

A couple seem to not have continuous issues:

The above will also assist in email encryption and Digital Sigs if you need to go that route some time: HIPAA compliant too.

The above accepts TLS and caches mail if your server goes down.  It really works well--you don't have to do anything once it's configured but listen to the absence of SPAM complaints.

BorderManager on the firewall. Opinions about Sentian N2H2, SurfControl, Connectotel? These don't seem quite right for anti-phishing. We're not that concerned about employee file sharing, for example.

GroupWise v6.5 includes RBL capability, which I've found to be extremely effective. I'e eliminated about 80% of my SPAM (which includes phishing) by implementing RBLs.

If you want to filter on content, then you're going to have to go 3rd party: GWAVA and GWProtect are two products that come to mind. A/V scanning comes with both of those, too, I think.

With Postini, we've eliminated about 99% of SPAM--really, not kidding.
Prior to using Postini, 78% of inbound mail was SPAM; we had some users receiving 300 SPAMs a day.  Now, if they receive a SPAM--maybe once a month, they let me know and give me an elbow in the rib.

You can filter the mail as well.

We've been using Postini for quite a while, and business email has not been interrupted.  Also, the mail is pre-scanned for viruses inbound and outbound if you wish--I like having those extra layers of prevention.

Did I mention that I don't have to maintain it?  Heh, heh . . .   It just works.  Period.
