I would recommend Postini (, it is not a hardware 
solution but they are cheep and the service is very good.  Also they are 
not a store and forward filtering company, they have a much more real 
time system that connects to your mail server as they receive the email 
so that the sending server gets the response from your server rather 
than from their server.
