RE: Mail scanner

I've used Clearswift Mimesweeper for SMTP (the current version has
facilities for users to release their own mail), and also the solution
provided by iCritical (Critical Software - see www.icritical.com) which is a
combination of an "appliance" (actually just some software you download and
install on a bare server - no prior OS install required) with a sort of
managed service for the updates etc.

Both have proven to be very effective.  The iCritical system also allows
users to release their blocked mail via a web page.

I've used the Barracuda device but TBH I didn't rate it that highly, though
it may well be that it has improved in the past year or so.
