Email Security-

By ndikid ·
WE are considering implanting an enterprise email security system for about 500 users. We are considering GFI mail essentials and GFI mail security versus Barracuda Network spam fire wall. Can anybody suggest the better product of the two.

On Barracuda

by beads In reply to Email Security-

It works well but can be a real pain to setup at first. Maybe its different now.

Never heard of GFI but make sure its not just a variant of Barracuda which is a variant of something else that escapes my memory at the moment.

Have 2 Cuda's and love them

I have 2 Cuda 300's and I love them.
It takes a few weeks to train the filters, but once you do. Its great. I even set up a PAT filter with the Cuda.

Some Will Hate Me But!

by DRVTACH In reply to Email Security-

I have a client that got very pissed at Microsofts licensing and the need to buy new M$ programs. He called and asked if I could help him. I made a BooBoo, well a heck of a lot of work! I told him about Open Source Programs. Within a week he had researched Open Source and Called to say Get over here and get all Microsoft software OFF My Network.
I had to call a friend as I did not know much about all the programs he wanted to use. Gave him the account I just did nit have the time to learn everything. I did start using Open Office, it is better than anything M$ has out and is FREE.
Long way to say, I would never pay $1400+ for the software you want to run after setting up everything we did. I believe he figured a min saving of $90,000 for the first year.
There are many Open source programs that can and do what you need. Some much better for FREE. Go get a raise and save your Boss a bunch.
Here is 1 of 11,400,000 Google pages on open source mail servers
Have fun Dont forget Some things in Life are Best If FREE.
