UPDATE

I just got done messing with that Untangled garbage. It has absolutely no
way to configure anything. It is basically setup so all you have to do is
plug it in line as a bridge and "hope" that it does what you want cause you
can't configure it for crap.

So back to the "cuda." I tell you that I have turned off the use of the
Barracuda black list and only use the zen.spamhaus.org BL and it is taking
care of about 95% of the spam. If anyone is looking to do some basic spam
filtering on the el-cheapo I would highly recommend some kind of box that
all it does is checks the zen.spamhaus.org blacklist. Wish I Would have
figured that out before I gave my money to the "cuda." 

Thing is with a "cuda" you gotta keep feeding it (money) or it will become
un-loyal and run away from you.

I would seriously stay away from untangle as an ISP-level solution.

Sure, it's cool if you're a small shop with no budget, but this is not 
something that you want to mess with.

I'm guessing (because you're asking this question on this list) that are 
looking for something easy.  If so, seriously consider doing the Postini 
thing like others have suggested.  I would recommend several other 
managed Barracuda solutions I've tried, but honestly, I've never had 
with them the seamless experience I've had with Postini.

Or...build your own solution!

Like I said in an earlier email, Qmailtoaster is solid

You can easily have it forward to other boxes, and it's an excellent 
(IMO) "first defense" solution for those who are budget conscious and 
willing to put in some (but not too much) elbow grease to fix their problem.

Their listserv is good, in my opinion.  The people I've talked to there 
have been quite helpful.
