I have Server 2003 and Exchange 2003 with GFI Mail Essentials version 10.1. GFI blocks alot of our spam however, on average each user may get anywhere from 2 to 10 emails a day that are spam. Almost 90% of the spam that does make it to the user is caught by outlook and is placed in the junk email folder.

My question is why is outlook able to filter the spam that GFI wasnt able to?

If you can answer that question then there are some Russian spammers who would pay you a lot of money.

The fact is that different spam applications are effective at catching different types of spam. I have done sites where we have gone through three or four applications before we found one that was effective for that particular site.
GFI ME has a pretty good success rate and is quite popular in the market, but it isn't effective for everyone.
