Hi All,
Antispam feature of my antispam appliance is going to expire day after tomorrow, procurement process is going on but it will take atleast a week that means employee may get spam emais which is not acceptable at any cost.

I was reading that exchange 2007 also having inbuilt antispam feature so i just wanted to know how good it is practically. how it works. would it control some amount of spam emails ?

I have small exchange infra which consist 2 mailbox servers and 1 CAS+HUB tansport server. Prompt response will be highly appreciated.

To actually answer your question, in my opinion it is okay at best.

It leaves a lot to be desired and personally I use Vamsoft (www.vamsoft.com) as it is way better.

Some of the features I use for content filtering that Vamsoft lets through, but when I only used the Exchange tools it was either useless or too hard-nosed and rejected everything that was wanted.
