RE: Mail scanner

If you have a Symantec Enterprise subscription, you are entitled to
Symantec mail Security for SMTP.  Setup a Windows or Linux box, install
the software, and you have your mail firewall.  I like this software as
it provides for a central console to manage multiple scanners (servers),
integrates with LDAP, and seems to be a pretty rugged product.  The
latest version  is a great improvement.  The only feature I would
recommend is a per-domain LDAP query instead of a global one.  I run one
corporate mail server and use LDAP to block bad addresses at the
firewall, but my lab mail server can't receive any mail as it doesn't
use LDAP.

My company currently scans emails for attachments but we are
considering a change of supplier.  One of the problems we are having is
with allowing users to release their own emails.  I've spent a few hours
trying to configure it but to no avail and support is only for the
configuration, not "how do I do..."

Does anybody have any recomendations?

I recommend using a Barracuda Networks Spam Firewall.  We have had great
luck with them and they seem to do about 99.9% of the things we want
them to do.  They have also cut down on the number e-mails we received
to about 25% of what we had been receiving.
