Re: Barracuda Networks Spam Firewall

We have done an eval of this same product (model 400). It is very cool in virtually every regard except one: performance. We were facing 1+ hour mail delays (!) through the device when pumping less than 1,000,000 messages per day through it. Given that they claim it can handle ten times that much, I am left wondering what happened. Very disappointing in that regard; the eval unit is being shipped back as a result. -- Jared

Looks like a good box -- even won an Editor's Choice award from Network
Computing recently.

Does anyone on list have any experience with these boxes? If so, how are
they with false positives, quarantine capabilities, etc?

Thanks,
