A neighboring school system is using the Barracuda and really like it.
Can't comment on the Easyantispam.  But, why not just implement your own
SA solution?  That is what we do.  I would be glad to explain our setup.

Hi all,

I am posting this question here because I know there are alot of ISPs
using FreeBSD (including me) and am hoping to get feedback, either
directly to me or to the list.

We are wrestling (as I am sure many are), with spam. Up until now we
have been employing Spamassassin locally and using some 3rd party
Anti-Spam servervices that are getting less and less reliable as the
weeks go by.

We are considering two hardware solutions, Easyantispam and Barracuda.
Barracuda is very expensive, so the most likely candidate is
Easyantispam. Does anyone out there have thought on either or both of
these? Usability? Reliability? Total Cost of ownership? Integration

Any thoughts will be appreciated,
