Currently Being ModeratedOct 1, 2008 10:55 AM (in response to starion)It only gets worse. Over 92% of the traffic to our machine (130 domains, 1000+ users) is spam. About 80% of that gets nailed at the RBLs, half of the rest by our filters, and the rest end up in user boxes to be postprocessed by SpamSieve (or whatever Qurb became for our Windows users). Apparently it is still against the law to exterminate spammers, and there seems to be a large percentage of the breeding population who still purchase their promotions, or can't secure their Windows botboxes, so through the magic of compassionate capitalism and certain lame OSen, spam is not going to die anytime soon.
You could offload your processing by using the likes of Postini or other services, or the spam appliance you mentioned. Beyond that, or my very tongue-in-cheek suggestion of vigilantism, there is no cure.Xserve G5 DP 2.3, OSXS Leopard, 7 Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
