All of my customers that had Trend dumped it long ago and none of them
have looked back. They all use an external appliance such as a Barracuda
or an external service such as Postini. Both work very well, plus they
keep all of the spam from coming into your Domino server where resources
are wasted sorting through the rubbish to get the good mail to deliver. It
certainly makes upgrading much smoother.

Best of luck in your final decision.

We don't expect Trend to stop much either, since we have virus protection
installed at desktop & server as well. I will see what Management thinks
about dumping it as well.

Thanks for your help.

Honestly, we're this close to dumping Trend. We have Message Labs scan
all of our internet inbound email. We also have desktop and server based
virus protection. We're wondering if the additional protection provided
by Trend is worth the hangs. Like the one I posted yesterday.

Checking the logs I see a bulk of the work done by trend is "Filter
attachment by file type". Apparently our Jaurez and El Paso personnel
receive a lot of .wav files and this strips them off. And a few people
send/receive .exe files and these are stripped.

Can't recall the last time a virus/trojan/etc got through the other stuff
and SMD stopped it.
