We've had a 400 up for 3 months now, very nice box. It's doing pretty
good with handling false positives, and the updates are very frequent.

One of the nice things for us is the ability to do per domain / per user
quarantines for clients that want that ability. It also has an
'Exchange Accelerator' to tie into LDAP on exchange servers.

We've not had any serious through put issues so far, but only pushing
500K mails a day so far.

We have done an eval of this same product (model 400). It is very cool
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
that regard; the eval unit is being shipped back as a result. -- Jared
