Hi All

I recently changed one of my clients from pop3 accounts to exchange. I set the mx record to
point to a dyndns username (static ip's arent available unless you go uncapped). I set up the
exchange built in spam filter with a scl rating of 8 but some users are still getting spam and if
i restrict it anymore then it blocks legit mails.
Should I go for a 3rd party spam filter and if so which one? Free would be cool if not $$$ is
ok aswell

Yes you should go.  I recommend Postini esp for small businesses.  It is hosted and works excellent.

I use for my clients, and would highly recommend Vamsoft: http://www.vamsoft.com/

it's priced per server not mailbox unlike some others and it's very good.

Personally - I use Vamsoft ORF - www.vamsoft.com which is priced at $239 per server and is absolutely brilliant at killing my spam.

No better product that I have used so far!  I even threw out the Exchange 2010 built-in tools in favour of Vamsoft.

I recommend www.spamstopshere.com ,(Pricing: only $19/month for 10 mailboxes; $105/month for 100 mailboxes; $805/month for 1000 mailboxes )

I will add all of these are good solutions esp compared to what exchange offers.  I stick behind postini as I have used it for about 6 years and the pricing is right for SMB's it works excellent and is easy to manage.

There is a big reason why Google purchased postini. it just works.

Then my second choice is the Cuda, but it gets pricey esp when compared to a postini solution, but it is entirely managed in house.

I had a look at Cuda, but as you say it gets a bit pricey. Wow, that spamstopshere is quite cheap as there are only 20 users on this domain so for that price its not bad. Easy to use?
Im keen on postini as i'm sure google wont buy something that isnt good
