SA does a great job for me office wide but I wish there was something
proactive to do. I've heard the resolve of not really getting anywhere
with ISP's but there's got to be something less lazy than just trapping
the crap. It doesn't change the amount of Internet bandwidth chewed up
by millions of spam messages. I was kind of hoping to get a success
story or two. Hey I know....lets start a spam reduction crusade!! ;^)
