Did anyone check Google Apps Message and Security Filtering Products
(http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/security/compare.html ) ?

What is the advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing the email filtering?
And will it be sufficient and secure ?

Thanks ,,,

I am just sending an e-mail out there to you all to find thoughts out
there on a good Spam solution to possibly use for an enterprise.
Would like to hear positive points and pain points on some solutions
out there from you all if you have the time.

MailScanner (www.mailscanner.info) is FOSS (however there is a commercial
version (www.fsl.com)), and has worked amazingly well for us.  There is much
activity on the development front, and the user community is wonderful.
Utilizes your favorite MTA (although sendmail is most supported),
Spamassassin, RBLs, Pyzor, DCC, Razor and countless AV scanners like ClamAV,
BitDefender, Symantec, McAffee, F-Prot, etc.  Web GUI front-end available
for reporting and real-time logs.  Never heard a complaint about false

Price is right, and can't think of any downsides.
