    Hello all,
    My Company has issued me the task of finding a new Anti Spam filter. We use Microsoft Exchange and currently are using the Trend Micro security suite SMB.
    We have found the Anti Virus engines to be great and all most infallible, but the antispam and content filtering aspects are crapy and inconsistent.
    Various Emails are quarantined for unknown reasons and it causes us a great deal of grief.
    So we are hoping to disable it and install another one on top if it.
    I found this antispam engine online and I was hoping to discuss it with you
    Has anyone used this system?
    It sound great but then again I don’t know much about the matter
    It claims the have the following properties
    - Directory Harvesting Attack Protection
    Which I think our system have never been subjected to
    -Open Relay Protection
    I have a little trouble understanding what this is but I believe it means that domains and url's can be flagged using wild cards, which I think is good because I have noticed that in some cases the spammer will use the same names for subdirectories on different domains to host images (which otherwise I think is impossible to filter unless you use text recognition programs which I don’t think are even on the market atm, are they?)
    Mail Flooding Protection
    Which I once again I don’t think or server has been subjected to
    And finally Delay Filter Concept
    This creates a delay in the mail server, and is believed discourage spammers and should eradicate about one third of all spam

    This sounds pretty good to me but as mention before I don’t know the whole story.
    If anyone could please give me advice on the functionality of this program and possibly suggest other Antispam engines that are better (please provide reasons) please do so.

    Thank you for your time,
    Regards, Hamish

    p.s is this the right section?
