Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put the barracuda in 3 years ago and never looked back. We were using an application based Spam filter called ORF. It was ok but certainly wasn't doing it's job. Once I got the Barracuda installed, the next day I got a lot of calls from my users. Their question?? "Is something wrong with e-mail? I didn't get hardly ANY SPAM."Their support is great and these guys really know their stuff. They are cost effective and reliable. Even sent me a brand new (not refurbished) appliance after I lost a fan in my old system. I recommend these guys to anyone looking to reduce their spam and don't have an unlimited budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is our 2nd Barracuda unit, was so impressed withthe Message archiver that they were top pf the list when it was time to Upgrade our 6+ year old appliance from another vender. Finished 2 months ago and have much praise for the Spam-A-cuda. Had it up and running in under an hour and a lot of that time was spent on advanced configuration after the unit was in place.- Per-user quarantine and multiple notifications in a day is great- The outlook plug-in makes getting rid of the missed spam easy- Message log lets you locate and troubleshoot mus-classified messages- Like the ability to Grant 'Help desk" access to let a user manage held messages but not settings.- Free access to their cloud service for message encryption for all users -- sends a notice to the recipient to pickup their message in the cloud (also bypasses message size limits because attachments can be HTML downloaded)- Web management access - I can login from phone and release messages, or preform ANY admin functions using the CloudControl without having to be on the LAN at the office.And mostly I came back to Barracuda because their tech support is just great, I've had about 5 calls since setup, mostly just tweaking config and stupid administrator questions and they answer every one like you are their best customer. Every rep I've dealt with has personality and laughs and cries along with me.I'll be looking to them for other network needs in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent product. I had an SF300 deployed at a large, multi-site law firm and it worked without a hitch. There are options to allow users access to release emails, and you are able to filter inbound and outbound messages.Provided the power is on and you have internet access, the device will hold and store inbound messages even if exchange is down. Great product, I hope to work with one again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is awesome. The 300 runs a little slow in our environment but that's because we've outgrown it. Even being overtaxed, it preforms well adds very little latency, and is nice peace of mind. If you ever have a problem Barracuda support is spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just learned how to use this not too long ago and it didn't take long at all. The software it uses it easy to learn. The hardware has never had any issues. Great spam filter.
