OT: Replacement for Postini protecting onsite Exchange

From: Cynicalgeek 
Since Google is moving everybody to Google Apps and they are no longer
signing up new Postini customers....does anybody have any recommendations
for a good replacement that works similar to Postini?

=============================================================== From: Cynicalgeek ------------------------------------------------------ Thank you Dave, Rod, Wes, and Nick. If anybody has any online hosted pay per month ideas, those are worth considering too. While Google Apps will be a viable solution in a few months, right now people are out of luck if they want to sign up for "Postini."

=============================================================== From: Jason Brown ------------------------------------------------------ I've been working on a project to do exactly that, pay per month / year incoming email spam filtering and virus scanning. There are already players in this market, but I have a lot of experience in it too. Depending on your time frame, interested in being customer #1? Jason Brown.

=============================================================== From: John Aldrich ------------------------------------------------------ Quoting Jason Brown : I have to say SpamCop does a pretty good job for $30/year. You can customize your block lists and white/black-lists as well as your "comfort level" with spam. I currently have mine set to "2" so that anything with a spam level 2+ gets held unless it's on the white list. I have ONE with them that receives all my email from multiple email accounts and filters it for me. They also have a configuration similar to Postini for "commercial/commercial" accounts, however, pricing may vary. I suspect there is a "volume discount" for X email accounts where X is sufficiently larger than 1. Anyone interested in SpamCop for business purposes can contact corp-support@cesmail.net. The nice thing about SpamCop is that you get "free" spam reporting included in the cost of the email service.
