The last Readers’ Choice poll carried out for Exchange anti spam solutions was taken in November 2003. Almost two years have passed and the results and products have changed drastically. Although GFI MailEssentials has gotten the majority of votes again, the other anti spam solutions have narrowed the gap from the top spot. A number of new products added to the list this year have done remarkably well, such as Symantec Mail Security coming in second place. The voting was quite varied since there are so many anti spam solutions on the market, with a high proportion of votes going to the Other category.

“Our Reader’s Choice Awards give visitors to our site the opportunity to vote for the products they view as the very best in their respective category,” said Stephen Chetcuti, MSExchange.org manager. “MSExchange.org users are specialists in their field who encounter various solutions for Exchange Server at the workplace. Their vote serves as a solid peer-to-peer recommendation of the winning product.”
Regular polls are conducted to discover which product is preferred by Exchange administrators in a particular category of third party solutions for Microsoft Exchange Server. The awards draw a huge response per category and are based entirely on the visitors’ votes.
