    offer Anti-Spam service?

    Guys what do you think about the offering of an Anti-Spam service? We already offer it part of our hosting as value added to make us different.

    I wanted to hear other opinions on the subject and what you think is the best approach?

    We use a two step process:
    1 - Block open relays and known spammers
    2 - Rule Based - Check to determine if the content of the message is spam

    Also

    FYI if anyone is intrested. We have started to monitor our spam stats.

    http://www.supportem.com/antispam.html

    We have just started monitoring this and the stats are a little low but when all servers have the anti-spam service in place we expect the average spam to run around 20% of our E-mail. What are you guys seeing?

    Larry,

    What are you using to filter out spam. And what mail server/ OS are you running. We are very interested in this subject

    Thank you in advance.

    A combination of custom made scripts and open source software.

    -Razor
    -Spamassassin
    -Qmail

    We just started implementing it and plan on adding much more features to allow end user control. We are looking into how much of a demand there is to customers.

    We have also been discussing if there is a need for customers who have their own mail servers too.

    We use Spamassassin runnign on our Linux mail servers. We have it dumping all the mail into each individual user's "Spam" box. This way they can log into via their webmail interface and see if there is any legitimate e-mail waiting for them. This way we are covered legally. If they do not log in after 45 days, the e-mail in the "Spam" box is automatically deleted.
