Re: Symantec Mail Security

We use it and it works quite well. We're in the gaming
industry and so we get lots of mail that would
normally be deemed spam, but is actually legit.
Therefore we have to do a lot of custom rules and I'm
not a big fan of how you have to go about that. I
think in a more conventional company you could lock it
down quite easily and it would do a very good job of
filtering.
Also, if you're going to run it on your Exchange box,
you need lots of CPU and RAM. It can suck up a lot of
resources if you get a lot of mail.

Hello,

I am looking into enabling the AntiSpam feature in
Symantec Mail
Security for Microsoft Exchange or purchasing the
Premium AntiSpam
feature. Does anyone have experience or thoughts on
the two options
available? 

Thanks in advance for any input,
