Sorry, but I have to disagree here. If you have a mail server that 
receives mail directly from the Internet and you care at all about 
blocking spam or viruses, I'd say that you have an unending uphill 
struggle ahead of you.

I'd recommend anyone who does care about spam, and doesn't *really* love 
the idea of spending several hours a week tending to their mail server, to 
let Google do it for you instead.

Cheers, Chris.
