Because of the nature of the application, it has to be constantly kept
up to date in order to be effective. This is a bonus that you get out of
an appliance, as everything (should be) kept up to date for you
automatically. If you are interested, i am developing such an appliance,
which is based on MailScanner and FreeBSD and will have a more
attractive price than most of the commercial alternatives. It's still
not finished, but i am testing it with at a few sites, so far so good. I
believe i should have it ready for prime time within a few months.
