We are a Minneapolis based ISP. We didn't like any of the current
solutions available, so we developed our own. It's similar to Postini,
but we've put a lot of thought into it which makes it very ISP-centric, so
I like it better. And it runs on FreeBSD.
We have a specific pricing structure for service providers who want to
provide it to their customers.
It is a commercial solution, but if anyone is looking for another "hands
