Anti Spam Section

Welcome to the anti spam section. Here you will find the latest news, white papers, and a number of essential links to help all Exchange administrators combat spam on their servers. This section also contains the exclusive Server Based Anti Spam Comparison Chart, a comprehensive comparison of eight of the leading anti spam products for Exchange Server.

Choosing the right software

In the past, when spam mail was in its infancy, simply setting up certain keyword rules on your users' email client would usually do the trick to block unsolicited mail - or you just wouldn't bother since a few sporadic messages never caused too much trouble. However, now that over 75% of Internet email consists of spam, a more complete and realistic solution is required. As a network administrator, you are faced with two options; a 'Client-Based Solution' or a 'Server Based Solution'. We would strongly recommend server based software: this installs at the gateway, centralizing all spam management configuration and filtering out spam before it reaches your mail server or Exchange message store, as opposed to a client-based approach which would require constant updating of client configurations.
