Anti Spam

I am thinking of putting in an anti-spam server, maybe just a box all email hits before it goes to Exchange.  Does anyone have some good recomendations for software that I can run on the server side ?

We use GFI Mail Essentials, it has a Bayesian filter which learns from incoming and outgoing mail.  

I find it an effective solution and it filters the vast majority of spam.  It has white lists, black lists, keyword checking and can be configured quite finely.

We also use a gfi product for part of our anti virus solution - Mail Security

I quite like ORF from Vamsoft. It has worked well with a number of clients.

I have not tried these but there is a list here

If you have Exchange 2003 SP2 you can use the native Intelligent filtering in Exchange
