My clients all outsource email now because good anti spam is included.

For do it yourself, Barracuda Anti Spam comes up a lot.

Have you thought about a cloud-hosted spam filter like Barracuda, SonicWALL, Mimecast, etc?  Honestly, I prefer a hosted solution as it eliminates most, if not all, of the bad traffic generated by spam from the perimeter network thus freeing up a great deal of bandwidth for valid traffic.

Symantec.Cloud (formerly MessageLabs) is a very good Cloud based product (dealing with the rubbish before it reaches you) and is priced per mailbox per month.

The Email Protect solution offers anti-spam and anti-malware.

Worried about phishing attacks?

90% of attacks start with a phish. It’s critical that IT admins and MSSPs have the right security in place to protect their end users from these phishing attacks. Check out our latest feature brief for tips and tricks to keep your employees off a hackers line!

Well My recommendation is to go for the Barracuda Hosted Email Security.  It will cost you less and also save your bandwidth.

It has all the features required by an Email Security.

Personally, I have found Exchange's own antispam to be OK, if configured well.

You can add lists of safewords, and amalgamate safelists, which 3rd party solutions re generally bad at.

It always depends, but it appears to me that numerous users in here depending on Exchange are still looking to control spam.

@eitconsulting - think of this as outsourcing. Using a 3rd party solution to control spam will save resources. Get a spam solution that uses grey listing which Exchange does not do. Grey listing dumps email from IP addresses that cannot be identified.

I have clients using SpamTitan and Sophos UTM, both of which run as a VM quite happily.

For an even lower cost appliance, there is efa , which while not as polished, is free :-)

On the hosted side, I have worked with clients using most of the available hosted solutions, and not one of them stands out as particularly good.
