We, at Old Dominion University, use CanItPRO software from Roaring
Penguin (www.roaringpenguin.com). They have a freeware version, CanIt,
but the university bought the full blown version of the software and
support for about $40k for 3 years. We run Red Hat Enterprise Linux,
sendmail, mailman and CanItPRO on 3 clustered mail machines with a
Solaris machine running a PostgreSQL database. We have used the product
since March this year and are pleased with it. We are still trying to
get max use out of the product. They are a small company but have been
around for awhile. For instance, the guy who wrote MIMEDefang is
president of the company and have maybe 10 people in the company.

You may find other products that do well but cost more as well. You may
want to contact them if you are interested.
