Thanks for the resp Kelly .

I did find the mailscanner archives and I am getting 
some good info outa them.

I have a couple Sun 420's loaded now with A1000's
processing my email.  They do about 2mil average
daily both.  I still have a bit of research to do before
I can implement but it does look like a good solution.

Be interested in hearing about any other large sites
what kind of HW your using.

  sophos liscence is ridiculous, but the trial never expires (*cough*)
  As far as hardware, i do about 30-45 thousand messages a day and my email gateway is a 233 with 128 megs of ram. Works great :)

    Ive just recently subscribed to this list to please forgive me if this
    has been asked - I was not able to find any faq's with this information.

    Im now running mailscanner - sopos (trial which I really like) and 
    spam assassin.  Setup is catching about 95% of my spam im very 
    impressed (just my own account right now).

    Say you wanted to implement this in a site on a large scale - what
    kind of HW are some of you using - Say to filter for example under
    a million messages daily.  Also in my above scenario would I only
    have to worry about licensing sopho's to be legal ? 

    I appreciate any information or pointers anyone can give. Im looking
    to deploy this on a big scale as so far it looks like the most cost 
    effective & efficient .
