Pros: Before xeams we had to filter 500+ emails a day to find out which email was a valid customer enquiry and which was spam. The fact it captures 99% of spam and can easily flag new spammers and it learns is priceless. the suspect spam report that we get every 3 hours is 2nd to none.

Marking any emails that we send out as valid so the replies don't get caught in spam is perfect.

The support the team have given me over the installation and upgrade are invaluable.

Cons: Nothing at the moment, but when i do have an idea/suggestion or problem it's addressed and workarounds or implemented in the upcoming versions.

I would like a contacts list and or calendar like our exchange server but it's not crucial as we still use exchange server.

Overall: Having used Exchange server for 20 years this is the BEST spam email filter / email server ever.

I am slowly thinking of moving away from exchange. the more i use this software the more i am impressed and told other companies to trial it. Support are brilliant despite me being in the UK and xeams in the USA its never been a problem too small for them to help.

Xeams saves me a lot of time and can concentrate on my business more than ever now.

thank you

Pros: Powerful if you are willing to dig in and tweak. Out of the box works well, over time gets better and better. Paid for value is good, a big difference from running unlicensed. I think that with effort, I stress that, the unlicensed version could be just as proficient. The time saved by purchasing licenses is worth it to me. Tech support is responsive. I like having in house control of my IT services.

Cons: Unless you are a full time email guru the documentation could be a bit more illuminating. A virtual configuration tutorial A->Z to show everything that should be done as a basic example focusing on the less obvious options would be good. I think it is all there in the documentation but if you don't know to look for it.... I don't generally have time to read an entire manual before I implement. May say more about me though.

Overall: The reduction in SPAM, etc. is on par with other paid for services. Server services resource demand is fairly light overall.

Pros: What I really like about the product is that it's very easy to set up on any machine and very easy to administer. You set it up, set up the right parameters and bam, you are good to go. Within a few days to a few weeks, it starts learning and making improvements on emails coming in. It's really good at finding spam and filtering out the good emails, otherwise, I'd have to deal with 70k messages a month with only a quarter being legit.

Cons: There isn't really much to say other than they do need to expand a bit on how the product licensing works but overall, even then, it's not a con. I only say this because it does get a bit confusing but overall, it's not bad once you read their documentation and take the time to understand it.

Overall: Takes the filtering out of my day and makes it to where I don't have to worry about my company getting spammed or taken advantage of with frivolous offers.

Pros: The first thing that attracted me to Xeams is it's platform agnostics - I don't need a Windows server to run it on. Having used it all these years, what I find I like best is it's effectiveness.

Cons: Some of the lesser-used configuration options are a bit involved to implement, like installing SSL certificates.

Overall: Xeams has been and continues to be an excellent SPAM filtering tool. We host email for a dozen or so client offices, and I love the ability to have one central Xeams server for all our clients, but they each have their own individualized company portal, as well and individual logins for each person at those clients. Our clients have been very happy with the SPAM filtering results, as have we (we use Xeams for our own email filtering as well).

Pros: The ease of setup is excellent but beyond that ease is the sophistication to refine and enhance the control.

Cons: Nothing particularly springs to mind. Whatever criticisms I might suggest, they are firstly minor and secondly insignificant compared to the benefits the software brings.

Overall: Emails landing in people's inboxes are almost entirely spam-free. On the rare occasion where a valid email is considered spam and quarantined, the notification and subsequent retrieval is swift and hassle-free.

Pros: Enables companies to have a customizable filtering capabilities. It also has the feature to use as an email server.

Cons: Takes time and work to get just right however, if you want it customizable, its going to be that way regardless.

Overall: Awesome customer service. If you ever want a specific feature or you just want something to work a certain way, they will definitely do what they can to achieve it.

Pros: Accuracy in identifying spam. Very seldom make mistakes (false positive or false negative).

Cons: Requires logging into the portal to reclassify emails (false positive or false negative). The developers should provide a more efficient means of reclassifying an email.

Overall: Overall, the system is great. My company has recommended and helped implement 6 other Xeams installations for our clients.

Pros: Easy to deploy, easy to maintain, uses minimal resources

Cons: Searching for specific emails is not as obvious as it could be

If there was a better way for end users to approve/block emails

Overall: Started out as a free user, ended up liking it enough to pay for it, even though it's just for personal, non business use. I used to use GFI MailEssentials but it was far too expensive for non profit purposes.

Pros: The filtering, options for forwarding, customizability are the same as, and in many cases, better than the Barracuda SPAM firewall.

Cons: The interface for searching for emails could be streamlined, especially maneuvering between emails and the results page.

Overall: I use Xeams to simply get rid of the spam. It has proven to be better than Barracuda ever was!
