    Commonly Used Anti-Spam

    What are the commonly used anti-spam for servers? Free/Paid
    Ask for Server IP & Nameservers IP to check if your reseller provider truly provides 100% white-label.

    I'm sure SA is quite widely used. Postini works effectively as well.

    SA is probably the most commonly-used anti-spam software for Linux servers. Which is a shame, because I suspect around 90% of the people using it have never adjusted the default settings, which are... suboptimal.

    Postini is pretty popular (it's owned by Google these days), as is Mailfoundry, not least because it's (comparatively) inexpensive.

    ASSP is well-regarded but not widely used. (I like it.) SpamDyke seems to be popular for servers running Qmail (including Plesk and Kloxo boxes) but, hard though it might be to believe, ships with an even less useful set of defaults than SpamAssassin, sadly.

    Is Postini included to Google Apps (free edition)?
    I read ASSP but I seldom find a provider that utilizes this.

    Not that I'm aware of, I'm pretty sure it's part of the Google Apps for Business suite.

    Here is a comparison -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_...tween_editions

    Thanks for the info. I don't quiet understand the 50 USD.
    Is this per domain or per user/email address? Just in case you know

    The last time that I'm supporting McAfee, spamkiller is a desktop solution.

    Wow! that is expensive and I think you really need to use the other features of Google Apps aside from email to justify the cost.

    I saw this website which I can't recall its seems that they offer Postini for $12 / yr per email but I don't know how this work.

    Internal (although some of them exists as hosted as well) are:

    SpamAssassin
    IronPort
    Barracuda
    MailFoundry
    Commtouch
    MailChannels
    ForeFront
    Symantec

    I found the pricing of Postini Hosted solution (http://www.google.com/postini/compare.html)
    I think the process is simple since you just have to change the MX record but you need to inform your host to allow Google IP range on port 25.

    I used ASSP for my personnal e-mail for 4 years now and barely had trouble with it. It worked either with Exchange or cPanel.

    I use ASSP on my servers and love it. SpamAssassin would eat my resources up while still letting spam though.
