After trying out a Bayesian commercial product for my Exchange server (I can't get rid of Exchange, don't ask, not my decision) I'm pretty happy management is disappointed and am thinking about setting up a spare 400mhz box as an email gateway to stop spam.
Any thoughts? Has anybody else been down this road?

yeah, if want a commercial product look at mxtreme by Borderware, if you wanna set it uop yourself there's no better than postfix with Spam Assasin/Vipul's Razor, and DCC.

The mxtreme looks a little pricey. Would the OpenBSD gateway be between the Internet and my Pix firewall?

Anybody on this forum implement this solution w/ OpenBSD already?

I use it on this webserver and in virtually every client I have. It's pretty easy and we have how-to's for all of it in the how-to forum :)

I'm going through the process right now actually.
Here is what im using:

FreeBSD 4.9
Sendmail 8.12.11

Pretty straightforward setup really.
If your curious, I can post more information on what i've setup...

Yeah, sorry for asking about something we have lots of info on but is reassuring to have other people around that have done this.

Tarballed, as much info as you're willing to share :) I appreciate it.

Everybody think a 400mhz box will do for a company of around 30 people?
