SPAM Email

Hi Experts, what would be the best software to use to fight spam email from a client side and server side. Thanks (sorry if the wording of the question is ambiguous)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you use a Hosted Exchange or like service, they should filter for spam.
If you use your own Exchange that you manage, you could use something like the Barracuda spam filter. You did need something on top of Exchange.
If you are receiving email in a non-Exchange environment, you need a mail service that provides spam filtering like mail.com. I use mail.com

There are many, many ways to filter spam and no one solution fits all. The only thing I do not recommend is rolling your own because the problem has largely been solved commercially.

I would recommend Barracuda spam Firewall OR CISCO IRON PORT device for spam filtering.
