Hi, could you recommend an open source or decent email filtering server for spam and maybe email archiving? something similar to Ironport.

I came across Xeam - has any one had any luck implementing this for corporate email filtering.

Are you actually saying you want something that you don't have to spend any money on?

Perhaps then you want to provide a bit more details.  Like the O/S you want to run it on, any constraints you have etc.  'cause one answer to your question is use gmail and never delete anything :-)

Not a Linux solution, I know, but Office 365 has 50GB mailbox. unlimited archive mailbox, and filtering built in to the platform with many SKUs. Should at least consider...

Thanks for the replies.

Ok let me clarify a little better on what I am trying to achieve.


I would like to build a linux box (Ubuntu preferably) - this linux box is going to host an email spam filtering service that I can connect domains too so that any email sent to these domains is checked for virus and spam etc. then delivered to the intended recipient's mailbox (similar to Ironport, SMX etc.). My question is, does anyone know of an open source piece of software that will allow me to achieve my intended need (I have seen Xeam, DSPAM but havent used them).

Secondly, I would like to archive any email - so that if the mailservers at the recipients domain is down (for whatever reason) they can be retrieved from the Archive.

If anyone out there has used Mail Marshall, Ironport, DSPAM, SpamSoap, SMX Mail Security etc... - I would like to build a test box similar to this.

If I need to clarify my question a lot more - please do let me know - I am more than happy to explain my question in many different ways or languages :)

Have a really awesome night!

I use MailMarshal and Symantec Enterprise Vault, but both are far from free or open source products.

Given that anyone who knows the answers to those question would do so it a professional capability, you're asking for a lot of someone's skill or IP for free.

I don't see why you couldn't use something simple like postfix + mailscanner + spamassasin to do this

Out of curiosity, what solution did you end up with?
