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.

We currently use mimecast for spam and archiving.

They've been great but it depends on your budget and needs.

We have used ProofPoint on premise for over two years now. It works great and is easy to update. The URL defense has really proven to be a great asset since we have seen a surge in other company's legit O365 accounts that have been used to send malicious emails.

Untangle UTM has spam filtering that I find excellent once tweaked.  And there's the open source Email Filter Appliance -

@Rodney Barnhardt
I used last weeek ProofPoint please dont take risk. They claim to be the 1st in antispam with fraud defense and many more features. But I have a very bad experience and it took around 2-3 weeks to become stable. It is completely done by Proofpoint support.  Not sure what is wrong but I lost the customer forever. The only thing I found useful is URL redirection.

You can also check Exchange online protection or EOP with Advance threat protection or ATP.

Does proofpoint or Spamtitan have an SE that helps install this?
Rodney BarnhardtServer AdministratorCommented:
We performed our install with one of their engineers over WebEx. The person was very knowledgeable and explained everything as we went through it. We have been using the product for three years now. If you do go with them, make sure to include the URL defense. This rewrites the URL in all emails, this way if a link does get through that is later determined to be malicious, when the user clicks on it, the destination is validated via a ProofPoint server and blocked.  We have had some customer's who were compromised and emails sent to some of our employees. However, when they clicked the link, the action was blocked by ProofPoint.

For which product Rodney?
Rodney BarnhardtServer AdministratorCommented:
Sorry, ProofPoint
Cobra25Author Commented:
Do you know pricing for that service?
Rodney BarnhardtServer AdministratorCommented:
I think it may depend on your configuration and the amount of time. I looked back and we paid about $3K for the service.
Cobra25Author Commented:
3K for implementation?
Rodney BarnhardtServer AdministratorCommented:
I believe that is correct. It was several years ago
