Spam Filtering

I've had experience with a variety of services, software and devices over
the years:
Services
Postini - currently the 800 pound gorilla - responsive to customers and
senders - straight forward controls but not overly granular
MessageLabs - very thorough system - great for their customers - difficult
to work with if you are a service provider and are trying to get unblocked
AppRiver - long history with these guys - super responsive, great reporting
- good granularity

Software
SpamAssassin - good base level, used as a secondary system for additional
configuration
Trend Micro ScanMail for Exchange - best I can say is meh, it enhances
Exchanges message filtering but most of it can be done with proper
configuration
Symantec AntiVirus Exchange Agent - just avoid it, last I used it it liked
to mark PowerPoint files as unacceptable - not so good for my advertising
client

Devices
IronPort - liked the system - the secure send was a bit weird
Barracuda SPAM firewall - started off as a great product, more recently I
have experienced a lot of issues with false positives.
MailFoundry - simpler system, lower price point.  Was easy to set up for
multiple clients and give them each their own login.

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!

Robert
