Amen (or Ahem, or what BSDie would say). There will *ALWAYS* be
maintenance. If you are not developing new regexs and/or solutions to
fight the daily produced techniques that make up SPAM, then you are
implementing them.

If there is anyone who disagrees, then you likely have not dealt with
SPAM in an organization larger than a few thousand dispersed and
non-educated users.

If you have such, and you have no maintenance, then I beg your pardon.

...agreed. It's also worth taking a look at ALL options, not just
'packages' to "figure out what works for you".
