I will second what Len has said

Imgate works "Brilliantly"

It has reduced my spam intake by as much as 40% in a week.  I have seen
similar reports from others using it to.

As for the migration issues.  They are not an issue.  You place a separated
MX server in front of your current sendmail machine.  The separate server
doesn't need to be anything special from what I have found.  It just needs
an excellent operating system FreeBSD with postfix installed and the IMgate

Have a look at
