Yikes, my jaw hit the floor when I saw the prices for Marvin.

What makes it so much better than SpamAssassin that it's worth that

Personally, I don't see how a host could afford that and why they would
want to pay a monthly fee with the availability of databases like
spamcop, GPL programs like SpamAssassin, Razor, MailScanner, Bogofilter

That costs more than all of my other overhead combined, per domain that
I host.

This is somewhat of a shameless plug, but since it's on topic I think
it's appropriate.

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
off" approach like Troy mentioned, check
