    Really not a fan of Barracuda

    Couple of years ago we purchased several of their systems, based upon the promise of some forthcoming features and enhancements which never materialised, actually they did, but it was rebranded and sold as an entirely new product.

    You want security or ADC products, call Fortinet.. you want unrestricted Email archiving, give Exclaimer a try.
