Sounds good. Is the press release on the main website somewhere?
I often participate on experts-exchange and often point people to the
defendermx appliance and mailscanner sites.
This press release has all the info a lot of people are looking for so it
would be a good thing to point people towards.

> maintain anti-spam gateway” that has been discussed in this forum.
> Keeping this entire system and all applications up to date is now as
> simple as running `yum update`.
> An ISO download is available which installs CentOS 5 and the BarricadeMX
> server or you can create a basic Install of CentOS 5 and run the
> attached script after installation. This script will install and
> configure:
> BarricadeMX (the web interface)
> smtpf (The SMTP filtering proxy)

> Razor
> Bayes MySQL starter database
> Please contact info at fsl.com if you need more information regarding the
> ISO download, the CentOS basic install instructions or to obtain the
> free, fully functional 30-day trial license key.
> Some advantages to running this simple gateway configuration include:
> • No quarantine required: Mail is either delivered or returned to the
> sender with customized Non-Delivery Receipt.
> • Very High Capacity: A single CPU, dual core system with 2 GB Of memory
> can easily handle over 1,000,000 connection attempts per day
> • Web interface: A web interface is provided for configuration and
> statistics
> All of these advantages are also available when running BarricadeMX in
> front of MailScanner.
> Pre-filtering with BarricadeMX on an existing MailScanner server is as
> easy as running the basic BarricadeMX installation script. After
> installation BarricadeMX listens on port 25 and the MTA used by
> MailScanner is re-configured to listen on port 26. BarricadeMX is then
> configured to route mail for all domains to, port 26.
> This simple anti-spam gateway is so effective at accurately detecting
> spam that we will be the first company to offer a simple anti-spam
> guarantee. If BarricadeMX plus our customized version of SpamAssassin
> does not stop over 99% of the incoming spam with less than 0.1% false
> positives, we will return the cost of purchase.
