Install a free SMTP spam filter for postfix
Authored by: heavyboots on Jan 13, '05 12:33:07PM

Procmail is indeed great for filtering, but we've had our linux box taken to its knees by virus load. Proactive rejection of common virus-carrying attachments is one reason ASSP is so nice. Admittedly, an XServe has plenty of cycles to burn compared to our old 1.8ghz P3 but it is nice to just bounce the junk before it even lands on your hard drive.

You can probably use both.

In my case procmail is nice because I only have a luser account on the mail server.
