My exchange server is up and running now thanks to you guys!

My users are now getting a large ammount of spam and junk mail.  They use Outlook xp and dont have the cool new filters that come with outlook 2003.  I installed Inteligent mail filtering on the exchange server and it helped but not enough.  People are still gettin 100+ e-mails a day dealing with porn and other garbage.  Without spending gobs of money is there a good program that will filter out this garbage mail before it goes to my users?

thanks for any insite you can provide

Have a look at www.gfisoftware.com. They have many good tools that are not too expensive. In your case you would like MailEssentials.

Hi Deatherage,

What version of exchange are you using, on what version of windows?

I am a big fan of GFI software, but Vamsoft ORF is also highly recommended.  http://www.vamsoft.com

The industry you are in, and the type of email you receive will also be a factor.

Hope that helps,

Version of Exchange would be helpful.

Exchange 2003 SP2 has a spam filter built in. If you are on that version then you should start with that tool to see if it is effective. http://www.amset.info/exchange/imf.asp

I always suggest that clients start with that before moving to third parties.

Simon.

Enable recipient filtering (and tarpitting) -> http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Sender-Recipient-Filtering.html

Then configure IMF as Simon has linked to above.

If that does not do it for you, then install the demo of GFI and see how that goes for you
