I run ( We have been filtering incoming (and soon outbound) email for several hundred businesses and domains since 2003. We use SpamAssassin and ClamAV along with several internal techniques to ID spamming IPs and fingerprint spams. We also use humans to classify "borderline" emails to help stop the clever spams and reduce false positives. For the most part we do NOT use external Black Lists because of False Positive issues. The system is hosted on a cluster of 16 redundant filtering servers in a secure data center with a load balancing/failover front end and redundant backend db servers. The data center is run by and is connected to several Internet backbones. Our normal pricing is about half what Postini charges (when you are smaller, you have to try harder). But we are all perl hackers (we use Catalyst::perl for our user interface) and would love to contribute back to the community by filtering for free. So how many addresses are we talking about and what kind of volume?
