Best Way Blocking Spams

I've not used Len's IMGate solution, but have been hearing about it for
years now, and I've not heard one bad thing about it.

For those seeking a more hands-off solution that provides end users with
complete control over their anti-spam measures, you may want to check
out  I'm paying about $0.13/mailbox, and while
it does add up, it's well worth the cost.  In addition, Postini can also
scan for viruses and still have the cost less than $0.25/mailbox.

The thing I like most about postini, is that no mail is actually
rejected.  If it's thought to be spam, it's put into a quarantine for 14
days to allow the user time to retrieve those messages.
