Established in 1901 in Decatur, Illinois, Millikin is a private four-year university with approximately 2,200 students and 500 staff and faculty. On a daily basis, the institution's email system receives between 150,000 and 200,000 email messages, of which an average 93 percent are spam. Frustrated with performance issues and a lack of features in its spam-blocking solution, Millikin recently migrated to Messaging Architects' Linux-based M+Guardian appliance. The switch to M+Guardian brought significant improvement to the email system's spam management. With the previous solution, all inbound messages had to enter the email system before they could be scanned.
