With all this talk about spam filtering appliances, I figured I better
inject some insight into a company that I recently worked for.
MailFoundry also has a very nice product that will compete with Barracuda
on price. It has a nice UI which is easy to use, has nice pretty pictures
and gives you a *lot* of control over what you can do with the appliance.
The biggest difference between Barracuda and MailFoundry is that
MailFoundry is a human intelligence based email filtering solution. SO
you have actually humans looking at spam feeds / attacks and marking them
spam or ham and rules are created based off those actions. These rules
are distributed every 1-3 minutes, though I think they advertise 5-10
They also have a 30 day trial and are worth a look.
