Pros: Administration is easier then on some of the other spam solution products I've used. Also one of the cheaper spam solutions.

Cons: The filters are sub par at filtering. Even after verifying hardened settings. Too much spam still gets through.

Set it and Forget it AntiSPAM product that we use for most of our non-Office365 Clients

Pros: The Installation is fairly quick and easy.
GFI has a host of add-ons so it makes it easier to piece-meal the products you want to add to your deployment.
Love the end-user SPAM/Quarantine Access.
The Daily Digest feature is excellent, clients like the reports they get daily.

Cons: Can get cumbersome if you start going into the minutiae.
The Licensing part I'm not very fond of, if you go over the quantity the software simply stops working after a week or so of grace-period.
I would prefer if they sent email reminders when License renewal is closer.
Customer Service is hard to get a hold of.

Pros: It's very easy to install system. Mostly the default configuration works out of the box without any problems.

Cons: The system is somewhat easy to use. They have a lot of limitations when you try to do advanced configuration load or reset spam lists.

We have used GFI Mail essentials for the past two years to archive our email for our users to access

Pros: It has performed very well as far as the archiving of our emails. Our users are able to retrieve their own emails for themselves therefore reducing the administration overhead of doing the same tasks ourselves.

Cons: There are only a few gripes and most are minor. One being the amount of segmented archives that seem to get created. Integration with our domain was a little tricky.

Overall: The ability to quickly and effectively archive our emails and retrieve them via a simple web browser gui.

Pros: GFI MailEssentials does a good job of controlling SPAM. Administration is easier than some similar products but not as easy as others.

Cons: Administration requires some IT experience for successful implementation and user maintenance. Occasionally it seems like the filters block some non-SPAM items.
