Anti-Spam Service SBS 2003

I have a client running exchange on sbs 2003. He is getting a lot of spam on his main email address. I tried intelligent message filtering, but he wants a spam service that will filter it.

What is a good one that is easy to setup for this system?

Does he want to pay for a service on an ongoing basis, or just once for a damn good solution?

If the latter, take a look at Vamsoft ORF (www.vamsoft.com)

If the former, I don't have any personal experience of any so can't recommend any.

In that case ORF is what I would suggest. 42 day trial. Easy to setup and should eliminate the vast majority of spam. With a few tweaks you can get rid of a bit more.

If you want to trial it and need help configuring it, let me know - I'm happy to help.

You can also buy it and then a year later, renewal is optional.

Only a little!  Make sure you enable the Greylisting test (amongst others).

When you set up imf did you try different providers such as spam haus and spam cop?    I would also check Google's postini service.   It is about 4.50  per month per user and it also does s archiving.....the beauty of it is simply that there is no hardware to fiddle with and no large up front charge

I like Postini and that's what I was thinking of, but does that only work with Google Apps now?

Last time I tried Postini they said they were currently not accepting new accounts...strange.

Cloudmark isn't bad, I've used it allot and it's priced well and simple to install / config.

How many users on your system?

mrmythAuthor Commented:
There are only 4, but really they only use one email address. It is super small.

Alan HardistyCommented:
Then I would imagine that ORF would be very cost effective for you.

ORF is $12 per user and that is the same as Postini by the looks of things, but Postini will want money each year whereas Vamsoft won't, so Vamsoft will work out cheaper in the long run.

Your call.  I've not used Postini but can recommend Vamsoft as it eliminates all our spam.
