Hello,

What is your mail setup consists of?

Are you actually shopping, or would like implement your own, by either adding anti-spam, anti-virus tools to your existing mail server (using RBL lists, adding SPAMASSASSIN milter to assess whether or not the email will be accepted for further processing. Or use spamassassin on the user end to filter spam message into a user's spam folder.......)
Anti-virus, there are avast, clamd that would/could be incorporated to scan messages with attachments of a specific size, or of a specific type......

What features do you need, do you need the user to be able to "clear" a message that was quaranteened?, etc.....

Spamassassin is versatile that can have a system wide setting to handle initial "filtering" while can be further customized on a per user basis.

Available RBL lists can be seen on mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx This is a site you can check whether your IP is blacklisted.
IT lists all the available RBL lists.....

I regret no one is answering my question.  I asked if someone has used it and their input.  That's it.  That is a frustration of this site.

What once is free, becomes not free when the provider developing it determines they have made it ready for primetime which is what you went through with Xeams, someone will continue developing Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy Server as an open source, until they decide that it is more valuable commercialized. And two three years down the line you will end up back to where you are now.
It seems development of the Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy Server has ended in 2014. V2 is now offered with support from the author/maintainer if needed......

The only way to assure oneself of the cost and management is to explore whether it is worth while for you to setup and maintain your own filtering using similar tools versus.
