    I realize it's a few years late but search engine visitors find this still. I wrote up a comparison of running rspamd side-by-side with spamassassin in this github issue and some might find it helpful. – Matt Simerson Dec 15 '15 at 8:05

You may take a look at ASSP. Works great so far.


I can point rspamd, and it's not written in perl!

    Welcome to Server Fault! Generally we like answers on the site to be able to stand on their own - Links are great, but if that link ever breaks the answer should have enough information to still be helpful. Please consider editing your answer to include more detail. See the FAQ for more info. – slm Apr 4 '13 at 12:05
  • A quick search for rspamd should suffice if the link breaks, it's not like he provided just a link. Also see other answers. – transilvlad Apr 16 '15 at 10:44



Don't overlook outsourced spam filter (Postini et al.)


I would suggest you the Yandex Spam Defense - http://so.yandex.ru/all/index.xml It is a highly-reliable anti-spam system, used to protect millions of Yandex (one of the most popular Russian mail-hoster) from being flooded with spam. I like also Symantec Brightmail Anti-Spam and Sybari Advanced Spam Manager (both can work with Domino and Exchange).

By the way, I really don't think that SpamAssassin is a bad thing to use, I think opposite, if you have enough RAM to run it you will get really nice results.
