Hello Experts,
I am looking for a good and reasonably priced solution for filtering the spam and other bad stuff out before it reaches the  Exchange server.
The client does not want buy, install and manage an onsite soltion they are looking for a service like postini or Forefront Online and I am looking for one that is reasonbly priced and effective for them and other clients.

Can you help me compare options?

Thanks a bunch
Rick

Hi,

I am using Symantec Spam filter for my exchange server and i didn't face any issue yet, I can refer you to go for Symantec Spamfilter http://www.symantec.com/business/mail-security-for-microsoft-exchange. Also, some freeware available in the net but i am not sure how far it works.

My preference is exchangedefender.com :  eE-mail is filtered by their servers before reaching your server. Spam filtering is excellent with two levels of detection, sure spam, and probable spam, and four options as to what to do with it that can be controlled domain wide or individual accounts.  Also includes archiving of all incoming and outgoing e-mail for 1 year (more for additional $), backup MX service, encryption capabilities, and large attachment sending options, all for a couple of dollars per mailbox, per month.

Rick,

Decision will be different from each setup... It actually depends on your infra,

the decision depends on below

- how many users, if less than 1000 you do not have to invest more, otherwise you may use the native solution available in Exchange 2010(either install it on HUB, or plan for an Edge server etc). If you plan well, you may use this native solution for a little higher setup as well and further go for an Exchange aware Antivirus to further filtration of messages for virus infection.

Hello Robwill:
exchangedefender looks pretty good, but they do not have pricing on the website.
When you say a couple of dollars per mailbox that means per Exchange mailbox including multiple email addresses per account?
Is that $2 per account?

Thank you

The cost is per mailbox, per month. You can have as many alias's per mailbox as you like. As for cost the best bet is to contact them. They have made changes in pricing models over the past couple of years. They used to have minimums but removed them and since may have changed such that you have to be a reseller or buy through one. The cost has always been about $2-$3 for the group of service. My company and our clients have been very pleased with the spam filtering and all the other services are a great bonus. Support has also been excellent.
