Spam Software (IMSS) DMZ or LAN? - 9.May2005 7:57:00 AM

Hi

I'm in the process of setting up Anti Spam software for the company I work for. The software is Trend Micro IMSS.

I currently have a server setup in the DMZ for other things which is under-utilised. Should Anti spam software be installed in the DMZ or the LAN?

We have about 15 branch offices, many with exchange servers, the DMZ is located in a central data centre at our ISP, so if we can block spam out at this point we can save alot of WAN traffic.

What is the best configuration? DMZ or LAN? and what are the issues with either?

Cheers

Grimey

I would install the anti-virus on the DMZ and anti spam on LAN.
The reason is that anti-spam should be personal and configurable for each office.
I have to suggest ChoiceMail for anti-spam (look at the signature and you'll know why [Embarrassed] )
