How useful is the Barracuda bayesian analysis?  Barracuda's site indicates it's not really necessary, except in certain cases.  I'm new to Barracuda administration and question the value of maintaining the "SPAM" and "Not SPAM" lists, and then updating quarterly.

I suggest reviewing all the features Barracuda has on their services. If this service does not provide value to your organization, then bypass it.

We've used a cloud based anti spam service for the last eight years. They manage their system so we don't have to get involved with that area. We maintain white and black lists along with options that work for us.

I briefly looked at Barracuda but decided they were too expensive for us.

Thank you for the response, but I was hoping for more specific insight from someone with hands on Barracuda experience.
