(SSG-140) How good is the Anti Spam?

Hi,

 

Recently taken delivery of a SSG-140 which we originally intended to use purely as a firewall, using MessageLabs for our Anti Spam.  ML is now looking to expensive for our tastes and so we are looking into alternatives.

 

Installing the Anti Spam modual onto the Juniper is one option, but how good is it in practice?  Currently I have reservations about using it as it seems to be purely based on white & black lists and I can see with the volume of spam currently being blocked by ML we may see large amounts getting through.

 

Thanks in advance, AStaley.

I think you can check out this article, it explains in more detail the anti-spam limitations and what we support:

Ref to pg 3 for whats supported and limitations on pg 5.
