My question is - does anyone have any suggestions for another e-mail appliance like the Barracuda Spam Firewall that 
doesn't try to charge their customers for time not used


I don't know quite how high a performance you need.   If it's just email spam/viruses you are concerned with, you can 
run MailScanner for free, see http://www.mailscanner.info.    It's been around for 10 years now and used by a lot of 
big organisations, many of which are listed on the web site.    Written by a colleague here at University of 
Southampton, hence the plug.   If you install and run it yourself, there's a good community mail list for support and 

If you want a commercial version then Fort Systems (http://www.fsl.com) can do that, and they also have a companion 
product BarricadeMX that's a pretty decent pre-filter system.
