This is just a note to say thanks to the developers of SpamBayes! I have
been using SB to weed out junk mail from my entire Exchange Information
Store with a single installed copy for over a year. Since Monday my little
SB box has been dutifully removing the thousands (yes, THOUSANDS) of bogus
email thanks to the Sober worm.
Here are my specifics:
  - Exchange 5.5 w/ 100 mailboxes (96 monitored with SB)
  - Outlook 2002 with 96 mailboxes connected
  - SpamBayes 1.0b1 (April 2004)
  - Windows XP SP2 on a HP Compaq d220 1.8GHz with 1GB RAM
Junk Mail Stats:

    December 2003       2281
    January 2004       18633

This app has saved me from having to deal with end-users complaining about
all the junk email, about 2GB of disk space, and at least once saved me from
a virus outbreak for which Trend Officescan had no pattern for about 6
hours. The best thing is I do this all from a single pc and don't have the
hassle of training end-users on where to look when the mail disappears.

The only complaints I have had are from end-users who have enabled
notification in Outlook. They will get a notification that they have new
mail but, when they look in the Inbox there is no new mail -- because SB has
sucked it out of their Inbox!
