Spam Filtering

We use Postini at the office - very happy with it.  Every once in a while
obvious spam gets through, haven't figured out why but the quantity is not
enough to bother with follow-up.  If 5 spams make it to a user's Inbox in
one day they start complaining about it. A couple of years ago I was getting
100+ spam a day. Now I get 1-2 a day.

We used our own home-grown white list application for a while.  It worked
pretty well but took a lot of time to maintain.  It is much easier to let
Postini do it.  We still scan at the gateway for viruses and emails with
attachments are stopped at the gateway for manual review and release.
Executables just get dropped.

I am looking to see what everyone is using for Spam / Virus Filtering on
their Email.

Are you using open-source, software based, appliance based, etc..

Right now we are having ours done through outsource and I am thinking this
is a bad solution as it relies on outside people to maintain security of the
email for one, and their ability to catch things is not the best from what I
have seen.  I am not going to say what we use as I want to see if anyone
else is using it as well and then see if maybe it is a configuration or
setup issue we are having, although being out sourced I still don't feel
that warm and fuzzy about it...

Thanks ahead of time for the time, I know we are all really busy!
