Spam Filtering

Work: We used to use Postini but have in the past year switched to an
Ironport box. The Ironports are so far excellent. The only real reason for
switching was to save money between Postini + a "secure" email solution.
With the Ironport, we get both, closer to home, and for less cost.

Personal: I used to use manual stuff and spamassassin, but it just became
too time-consuming. I am now hidden behind Google Apps services.

I think spam management is one of those things that usually work well to
outsource, or at least let someone/something else manage. To be honest,
unless you're using custom rules, you're still really leveraging someone
else's expertise and research. But at least if you have it in-house, you
have a chance to make blocks if your service isn't working well.

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!
