Hi Everyone,

I work for a It service provider and we have about 50 Small to medium sized businesses that we offer support for (5 - 500 users; so to you US people...VERRYY SMMMALLL)

Anyway, we currently have all our clients using Symantec Mail Sec or Trend for email virus and spam filtering...which is fine but can be a little hard to manage, which got me thinking about hosted services...and then to us offering hosted services....and now here to ask questions.

If we were to offer hosted email spam/virus protection what would be the best way to do it? is there a prepackaged product we could buy, install on our network and then onsell (obviously point clients MX to that server etc)? or what would be needed in terms of server, software etc?

Does anyone currently do this?

I suppose the objectives would be:

1) give us another area we could value add to our clients
2) provide a reliable service to our clients
3) increase ease of managment
4) add a revenue stream for our business

cheers
