GFI is easier to use than its competitors and much more comprehensive, I've worked with GFI since 2003, and I am really impressed with the interface and the ease of dealing with the filters. You can send spam directly to the junk mail in the user's mailbox, and it's much more user friendly than what I've seen with any of the other packages that I've looked at. I have found GFI to be the best and easiest for installation, flexibility, and how it interacts with the mail client. Read the case study

Three years ago, our mail flow suddenly started increasing, with lots of spam in it. Most of my users, including my boss, started complaining that their mailbox was unreadable with a spam percentage averaging 60%! The efficiency of my colleagues and my company was in real danger, some would miss important emails to deal with and some would miss appointments.
I installed GFI MailEssentials version 9 and started training the Bayesian filter. Two weeks later all the mailboxes were clean with very few false positives. The auto-white list feature helped us a lot in reducing those false positives. DNS Blacklist and SURBL are also great features (catch 50% of Spam here). Read the full testimonial
The growing amount of spam, scam and viruses distributed over email led us to implement an anti-spam solution. We have been using GFI products since they were first introduced on the market as they were the leaders in this niche. By using GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity we havereduced the amount of spam and viruses in users’ mailboxes. We would recommend GFI because the solutions are quite handy and easy to maintain; the GUI is simple and easy to use; the products integrate easily with Microsoft products and resource usage is very low. Results can be seen immediately after deploying the solutions. The implementation of GFI Software’s products proved to be both time- and cost-effective.
Saratoga Hospital, NY
Our incoming spam was becoming a dangerous and burdensome load on our mail servers. GFI MailEssentials filtered our incoming spam and reduced the load on our systems while providing highly flexible and customizable rules that allowed me to stay ahead of the spammers. GFI MailSecurity with its multiple AV engines provides me with the flexibility in choosing just the right scanning capabilities to eliminate malware. The Sanitizer is amazing in its ability to pinpoint malicious scripts and remove them.
Gary Moon (Information Systems Security Analyst)
Independent Software, Inc.
Plain and simple, the GFI MailEssentials, GFI MailSecurity, and GFI WebMonitor for ISA Server combination provided both the front and back door security our small business needed; and they provided it within a small business budget. Through the use of GFI's products, we have all but eradicated SPAM and viruses flowing into our mail servers. Where we once received a daily intake of 3,000+ SPAM messages, we occasionally see one or two messages now. Running a small business requires you to wear a lot of hats. GFI made it possible for me to wear one less hat and concentrate on what I do best, and that is running my business."
Consulting Services is one of the leading IT and corporate security services consulting groups in Argentina. One of their clients, Teknofood, is involved in the design, planning, execution and monitoring of community nutrition programs in Argentina. "GFI has changed the way we work. Before we started using GFI MailEssentials, every morning we would have to filter between 100 and 200 emails to find those that were of interest to us. Now, GFI's MailEssentials does the job for us and on opening our mailboxes, all our email is sorted. This software has proved indispensable for us," Pablo Barbeiro, IT Manager at Teknofood said. Consulting Services successfully implemented and configured GFI MailEssentials, reducing Teknofood's spam volume by more than 85% and significantly boosting productivity.
GT Development a Norgren Company
We have been using GFI MailEssentials since 2004 and absolutely love it! The technical SPAM filtering (Bayesian filter) and the whitelist and DNS blacklisting are my personal favorites. We have Messagelabs as our first relay server for checking SPAM and phishing emails and still we get over 29% SPAM after filtering. Since Messagelabs does not have the DNS blacklisting capabilities and it lacks domain name relay, your product has been of great benefit to us to reduce the percentage of spam received even further. We will keep using this product and we will keep saving employees' time and money. Thanks for a great product and first class support.
I am very pleased with GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP. The product is very effective in dealing with all types of Spam and the technical support team is very knowledgeable about their product and we can always get timely and satisfactory service from them. I am very happy to refer your product to any potential customer.
We've been using GFI MailEssentials for a couple of years and I wouldn't have it any differently. We absolutely love the product. I can't begin to tell you how much time this product has saved me and our users.
The Rainforest Foundation UK
We run Microsoft Small Business Server with Exchange email server, and since using GFI MailEssentials, for over a year now, we have noticed a dramatic fall in the number of spam emails reaching our mailboxes. The installation was very straightforward as was the configuration of the different options from blacklist/whitelist to intuitive Bayesian analysis. We will definitely upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible.
Star Robbins & Company
GFI MailEssentials has really done an excellent job in preventing unwanted email in my organization. Being a small company right now, I have literally wiped out unwanted mail from many users in our organization. They believe I have some type of magical powers, but really it's all due to the people at GFI for making this possible. GFI MailSecurity has been a great addition to our Exchange Server. It has caught hundreds of possible viruses and stopped them before they were able to be delivered to our workers. To sum it all up, GFI is one fantastic tool that no Administrator can live without.
LCHA - Pryor Consulting
What a fantastic product GFI MailEssentials is! Within less than a week I had all of the filters in full swing with very minimal configuration. I now have less than .03% visible spam in my network. Reports show that 12,000-15,000 pieces of spam are stopped every month.
GFI MailEssentials is correctly filtering almost 98% of incoming spam! Congratulations GFI!
The Norwegian Union of Seventh Day Adventists
We needed to protect 200 mailboxes spread all around Norway and the UK from unwanted email so we purchased GFI MailEssentials as it was competitively priced and had received many positive reviews. We found it very easy to install right out of the box. Out of the 2,000 to 5,000 incoming email we receive a day, it is now filtering 70% of this which is identified as spam.
Rhodes + Brito Architects Inc.
I'm a registered licensed user of GFI MailEssentials. This product is wonderful and stops 99% of the spam. I downloaded a newer version for installation on our new server which replaced our older server and all is working well. It is one of the best software investments I've made!
Your software works better than any other filter I've tried. The thing I like most is that is requires almost no maintenance yet we went from 75% daily junk mail to less than 1%. I configured GFI MailEssentials within an hour of installing it and haven't changed a thing since. I was planning to trial another anti-spam product next but I've decided I found what we need in GFI. It's really great software and I've passed the news along to a few other IT people I know. One of the best features is that we have a few paranoid email lovers who are terrified that a filter is going to strip out a critical email from their dry-cleaner or something but the way GFI stores the junk in those special Inbox folders keeps them calm. Thanks.Oscar Edgerly
Wallich & Matthes
GFI MailSecurity and GFI MailEssentials were recommended to us by our IT support. We found these products were very easy to deploy and set up and after a couple of days within our environment we were able to use these excellent products without any problems. Best of all, thanks to these products our company was protected from the latest virus attacks! We tried many other products but all of them failed in direct competition with these GFI products. Thank you!Rastislav Živor
Kayye Consulting, Inc.
Before GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity, our SPAM was completely out of control, and we were receiving a tremendous number of email viruses a day. Since email marketing is an important component to our business, our addresses were highly visible to the general public and this made email administration a nightmare. GFI's products have helped make Exchange administration a breeze for our organization, and has reduced the time spent parsing through mountains of SPAM to almost nothing for our users.
MKO Partners Chartered Accountants
MKO Partners is a Chartered Accountancy Practice, our business is based on information. Email is used by our Firm every minute of the working day, as with any information business. Spam email represents a serious cost in man hours and a risk as an employer if staff were to get exposed to unsolicited and potentially offensive e-mail. That is why we purchased GFI MailEssentials to protect us from the several thousand spam messages a day that we receive. It provides us with a very high level of protection and we are happy that it is better than the product we previously purchased. It is also very easy to install and "train" to recognize spam.
Since we have installed the GFI MailEssentials & GFI MailSecurity Suite our emails per day and load on our email server has decreased drastically. We were at a point were we needed to upgrade the mail server we had, but since we installed this product we were able to keep our current hardware. The owners of the company were amazed at the amount of spam the system stopped daily.
Patrick Fahy & Co
The installation and subsequent upgrade to version GFI MailEssentials 11 went very well. In the 6 to 8 weeks it has been running, it has stopped over 2600 emails of which approximately 50 were legitimate emails.
We had already purchased GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP 10 and had an ASA with you guys, so I logged on and we already had a key for Version 11. I have to tell you, Version 11 is SOOOO much better than 10. Right off the bat we have been catching a much larger amount of spam with it. I really like the ability to select all the DNS blacklist servers and the spam URL list servers.
Galen T. Counselman
Philip Pank Partnership
With email being such a vital component of our modern business, it was becoming increasingly problematic for our users to have to sift through the hundreds of spam messages that they received every day. GFI MailEssentials has effectively eliminated that problem and helps our staff to concentrate on our clients instead of hunting through their emails. Combined with GFI MailSecurity we have a comprehensive security package that helps keep our company safe from attack and our business moving.
SPOCE Project Management Ltd.
We have been using GFI MailEssentials for about 18 months now and have found the product to be absolutely brilliant! Our company deals with professional training in project, programme and risk management. We receive most of our business from email bookings therefore it is imperative that we are confident in the effectiveness of the product, particularly with regard to false positives. We have monitored GFI MailEssentials and have found it to be very effective and accurate. Thank you for an excellent product!
DeWitt Stern Group, Inc.
Prior to using GFI, we were using an appliance based email gateway to filter our spam, but when that failed to block a fair amount of spam I decided to order GFI MailEssentials to work in conjunction with that appliance. GFI's MailEssentials has proven itself so well that we no longer use the Spam Gateway and have removed it from the network.
Calvary Church of Naperville
We are near 1 million messages through our server in 1 year, less than 1% are good mail. GFI MailEssentials has made that survivable!
Raque Food Systems, LLC.
GFI MailEssentials cut our spam rate by over 95%. I would be hard pressed to maintain the expected level of email service to our employees without it. The addition of the Directory Harvesting filter has been the single biggest improvement since we purchased the product 3 years ago.
Larry G. Fields
We have been using GFI MailEsentials for a month now and it has helped us cut our spam rate by over 90%. The Directory Harvesting filter and DNS Blacklist filter are great functions to fight spam.
We have been using GFI MailEssentials and GFI FAXmaker for over 4 years and we have found these products essential to our core communications network. It is imperative that we have an email and fax to email solution that is reliable, and GFI have provided us with this together with high end support, making GFI MailEssentials and GFI FAXmaker the best products for us.
The GFI MailEssentials 10 package is an excellent spam fighter. With the addition of SPF, it goes further to help eliminate our spam. We are very happy with its results. Cheers!
Dynamic Business Solutions
I love GFI MailEssentials. I just downloaded the eval and I can't say enough good things about GFI. GFI MailEssentials saves me over 200 spam messages per day! I think the accuracy is over 99%. I just scanned 394 junk messages and there were no false positives.

THONA Software & Consulting Ltd.
I cannot praise you enough for the idea you folks had for GFI MailEssentials version 10. Having the anti-spam tool learn from public folders is superb! I experienced a big "wow" on the weekend when I just moved a couple of dozen things into the "This is spam" folder. Great idea! Finally someone puts up an easy-to-use learning toolkit every idiot end user can understand. The new anti-spam feature in version 10 really rocks and the training is superb.
Thomas Tomiczek, Microsoft MVP, C#/.NET
We have been using GFI MailEssentials for over a year with great success. The installation is simple and can be done by almost anyone with a little knowledge of mail servers. After a test period of a few weeks the program started filtering almost 98% of all spam from the company email. All email users are very happy and it saves them a lot of time filtering the spam from the good mail. Before we had GFI MailEssentials I tested a lot of other vendors with spam filters but everybody in the company liked GFI MailEssentials best. When the trial version was over the real problem started because everybody wanted a spam free mailbox! So we purchased the software, and so far the program works great, especially the Bayesian analysis part, after analyzing the mail for a few days we almost banned out all the spam mail.
If you're thinking of buying anti-spam software, don't hesitate buying GFI MailEssentials, as far as I know it is the best around!
Peter van Heulen
GFI MailEssentials has drastically reduced the number of user complaints regarding spam in my organization. After installing the software and using it for a month, I'm beginning to understand why everyone was so frustrated. Using the reporting feature, I determined that about 46 percent of our incoming email was spam - and this is an organization that receives about 40,000 incoming email messages a week. GFI MailEssentials was very easy to install and configure. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable spam filter.
The Marketing Workshop Inc.
We recently purchased GFI MailEssentials v.10.1. We had been using an older version on another server and it tested just fine. We feel the product is a good one and the tech support is very good, which is my personal "issue" with many other companies that don't support their products well.
Urquhart-Dykes & Lord LLP
Up until a few months ago I had never heard of GFI or any of their products, so when I was looking for a spam filter for our Exchange 2000 server I was surprised to see so many good reports about GFI MailEssentials. I can honestly say all I read turned out to be true and the product has to be the most effective and easy to use software I have come across. There is almost zero administration required and so far it has been 100% reliable. Congratulations on a superb product!
EcoDigital Development Group
I recently installed GFI MailEssentials on a W2K/Exchange 2000 Server, after a few frustrating months with a competing anti-spam filter. The very poor performance of our filter led me to try GFI MailEssentials. We receive roughly 4000 emails a day. According to the reports for the past week, 93% of those emails are spam. With GFI MailEssentials a reliable spam filter in place, we can reduce the time an employee spends on filtering out spam. My employees thank you and I thank you for such a great product. I would highly recommend it for everyone!
American Hakko Products, Inc.
GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP is the only real solution to spam for any organization, large or small. The numerous features and configuration options, in conjunction with the tight integration with Microsoft Exchange Server and simple installation, makes GFI MailEssentials a must have for any mail server. We have been using GFI MailEssentials for about a year now and we are astonished at the accuracy and performance. Of the nearly 500,000 messages processed since the installation of MailEssentails, we have eliminated over 99.96% of all spam for our users. We are particularly impressed with the Bayesian Filter used by MailEssentials, which after a short and simple process of configuring the filter, had a false-positive detection rate of less than 0.02%. The support we have received from GFI when we did have technical questions was outstanding, courteous and professional. We highly recommend GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP.
CIW Foundations Exam Cram
I am a corporate trainer delivering in several different situations, college and business, and need numerous 'tools' to illustrate good security practices to my students and to give them insight into what is available on the market. When delivering a class on Microsoft Exchange Server I like to use GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP as a tool to demonstrate with. My recent class of security students were very impressed with the ease at which all of the products could be installed and configured. When I mentioned the new SPF (Sender Policy Framework) that was included in GFI MailEssentials, we had a long discussion about spam, the law and how it affects businesses. They were all anxious to test out the new product and they were all impressed with it. My hope is that every corporation will hop on the SPF bandwagon and that spam will become a thing of the past.
Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook
Supporting a non-profit organization is always a challenge. Being a volunteer, with GFI MailEssentials running, I don't have to worry about spam getting into our network. GFI MailEssentials stops it before it can cause problems. My hat's off to you for providing a quality, feature-rich, and easy-to-use product!
The software is great!! I have been installing it on most of my clients' networks. I work for an IT consulting group and tools like GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP are always greatly appreciated. Version 10.0 is a superb product with unique features and greater control over spam filtering. It is an awesome product with user friendly interface which makes my job much easier.
Vital Health Foods
I would like to congratulate GFI on the new version of GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP (version 10). We used to run version 9 with great success. Installing version 10 was really easy and it integrates beautifully with Exchange 2003. The enhanced features in version 10 (mail archiving and list servers) are simply brilliant. I am amazed every day at the power of the anti-spam system. We receive more spam (non-work-related) messages than actual work-related messages every day. The fact that these "rubbish" messages are blocked by the spam filter saves our company a lot of wasted employee time.
We have also been using GFI Faxmaker for a few years and this is another hassle-free and great product to use. I will certainly recommend any of the GFI products to other IT workers.
Robert van Endt
Triad Engineering, Inc.
I have installed GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP 10 and so far I love it! The installation went well and was completely painless. GFI MailEssentials has not reached the 2500 email point where I can safely enable the Bayesian Filtering, but is working great. I love the automatic whitelist feature, which is just awesome. GFI MailEssentials is catching spam that a competing anti-spam solution consistently missed. GFI MailEssentials not only put a halt to the massive amount of spam, but it also helps ward off a lot of virus-laden spam. That by itself, in my opinion, makes GFI MailEssentials one of the best server applications available and well worth every penny. It makes my job so much easier. Here's a great big Thank You to everyone at GFI.
I am a big fan of GFI MailEssentials. I have used it from the initial release up to the latest v10 and I believe it to be a great product and I look forward to even more improvements. My spam detection rate is near 95% and my false positives are very low. I also use some other anti-spam products but GFI MailEssentials is more flexible, easier to use and configure and it learns from my company email, not someone else's email database. GFI MailEssentials is my current product of choice and I truly endorse, recommend and support it.
Michael E. Labanowski
GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP has been a wonderful addition in our ongoing fight against spam. For the price and the ease of maintaining it I would recommend this product to anyone.
HKMB International Insurance Brokerage
I must admit, I was skeptical that GFI MailEssentials would work as well as some people had admitted to me, but it is a great product. With the volume of email we send and receive in a day, even the Baysian filter was able to be turned on within 3 days. The spam content has dropped dramatically and I have nothing but praise for management. I thank you for making such an affordable product that is easy to manage and basically trouble-free. I will be sure to recommend your suite of products to anyone looking for these types of solutions.
The installation was very easy and we have been using GFI MailEssentials ever since. The results are amazing, currently about 99% of spam is blocked with only about 5 false positives in the last few weeks. We are very happy with the product and hope that you will continue to improve it.
Jan Willem Hoekstra
Great product, easy to use and install. We were bombarded daily with infected emails and because the spammers were so smart, our employees would open the infected email thinking they were from another employee, therefore infecting others until we had a major outbreak. I tried other programs and some freeware and couldn't stop them from coming in. Especially when there are 150 users and they don't always pay attention!
I went to my computer supplier and asked what they used. I was told to download GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP and that I would get 30 days to try before I buy. That was all it took!
Well I have to say GFI was smarter, I installed the product and within minutes the spammers were no more... very cool! Thanks to my computer supplier and GFI, the only spam I get is from the grocery store!
I write from my home and use Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 for mail. With my email address published in thousands of books, articles, and Web pages, I've always had a difficult time controlling spam and viruses. The problem was how to block spam and viruses without preventing my readers from contacting me. The frustration was trying to remain productive while sorting spam from legitimate mail.
The solution was GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity. Without these products, I'd almost certainly lose contact with my readers. With these products, I get legitimate mail from my readers but contend with a tiny fraction of the spam I once did, and I never see a virus in my mail box. And I've regained hours of productivity every week - hundreds of hours a year.
Small businesses must give GFI a try. They can't afford to ignore the benefits.
Rifenburg Construction, Inc.
I like GFI MailEssentials version 10 better than the older version. Self cleaning log files, public folders for training the software, using the public folders to add to white/black lists, all far better than the previous version.
We love it! I was shocked to see we were getting 70% spam in the first week. Thanks for a great product! I already wonder how did we survive without it!
We have been very impressed with the ease of use of both GFI MailSecurity and GFI MailEssentials in comparison to other renowned brands in this field that were often very cumbersome (and expensive). I have already suggested your software solutions to several of my IT peers.
The Richmond Information Group, Ltd.
After getting Exchange configured properly, GFI MailEssentials has been working great. I am amazed at the amount of spam that it catches, and that is without the Bayesian filter turned on. The features, etc. are very good. Right out of the box it was what we needed, and I just needed to change a few things like sending spam to user's spam folders, etc. It's nice to see a company put out a product and listen to the users and take care of them. Some companies have their support email or something but don't really care about issues or what features could be useful in future versions.
IDH Development Holdings, LLC
Wonderful Product!! I am amazed at the amount of spam that actually hits our server. My customers are so pleased that they do not come to work each morning to a mailbox full of spam!! I evaluated several products, many of which were double in price but not in functionality. Thank you for such a great product and keep up the good work in fighting the spammers!!
I would like to share the great experience I've had with GFI MailSecurity and GFI MailEssentials. I previously ran a different program that scanned at the IS level only which took up many resources and was not as effective. I am running GFI MailSecurity at the SMTP level and I can now detect viruses before they ever reach the IS or potentially the user. GFI MailSecurity uses far less resources, and it protects against viruses like Netsky. I also really like the approval form that is in the administrator's email. That is really handy for the occasional email that is blocked based on attachment. I've also been using GFI MailEssentials on my server for over a year now. GFI has not let me down yet. I tried many other virus/anti-spam products and they all failed my tests.
U.S. Poultry & Egg Association
Within 6 months of installing GFI MailEssentials I have been able to stop (intercept) the amount of spam that my organization receives drastically.
All I have to say is "WOW! and Thanks!!" - Our users where getting over a hundred spam messages per day!! With GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP, the users are wondering if the email server is still working, because their mailbox stays clean. Once again, thanks for saving hundreds of hours due to unwanted spam!!
We have been struggling with spam for over four years with each year exceeding the last for volume and annoyance. We had users who were averaging well over 300 junk emails a day, which was a huge burden on our servers and network. We used several different products to try and manage spam and junk mail to no avail. After we upgraded our servers to Windows Server 2003 and Exchange 2003, we were hoping it would help stem the tide of junk pouring into our email boxes, which of course it did not. After researching all available products, GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP was the highest and most recommended solution available and just happened to be the most affordable. Within a few hours of installation, which only took about 5 minutes, it was immediately making a huge difference. After just two days we purchased the product and have never been happier. A problem that has plagued us for many years is now becoming just a distant bad memory. I highly recommend this to any organization who has an email server, regardless of the amount of users. The difference it will make on your network and the increase in productivity for your employees will pay for this product ten fold within the year. In my wildest dreams I could never imagine a spam product that worked so well.

GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP took care of our growing spam problem instantly. Installation was a breeze and the configuration options were clear and well documented. Our customers are thrilled to have their mailboxes back again.

GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP is a great program! We've tried so many, and GFI MailEssentials outperforms them all by a very wide margin, all without the extensive installation issues with Exchange. Very well done.

I downloaded GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP as an update to our licensed version. We have been very pleased with the performance of the GFI product. At present, it is filtering out over 500 messages per day for our office of 6 people.

In the article "Shielding intellectual property", The Australian (30 March, 2004) reported that the Australian Membrane Biological Research Institute (AMBRI), a biotechnology company, uses GFI MailSecurity and GFI MailEssentials.The security of more than a decade's worth of research and experimental data is fundamental for this company, meaning that emails containing viruses must be filtered at all costs. In the article, AMBRI's network administrator George Hanna stated that, in the last two months alone, 1,699 viruses have been blocked automatically. Hanna also said that some 41 per cent of all email received by the company is filtered as spam.
The spam solution I used previously kind of worked (it ate real mail way too often AND ate entire mailboxes occassionally) and I thought that it was the nature of spam that I had to deal with a bunch while the spam-eating program ate most of it. I was wrong. While searching for other solutions I started to hear about GFI and GFI MailEssentials via reviews on the web. I went and downloaded the free trial and the next week I purchased the program. I have gone from over 120 spam mails per person a day to 2 or 3. I am now getting less than 1% of the spam I used to. What a great program. GFI MailEssentials is easy to install, easy to configure and fantastically priced compared to other products on the market. My users love the fact that they now have a JUNK folder and they can control what does and does not come to them. They were always questioning if something was "missing" with the previous spam solution, and, quite frankly, a lot of the time they were correct. Restoring mail from my backup program is time consuming and I have other things to do besides babysit a spam program. The bottom line? Your program works. It works like it says it does and I am a GFI fan forever!! Thanks
Before installing GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP, our firm was deluged with overwhelming email spam. After one particular brutal weekend, where our Exchange server had shut down due to the sheer volume of spam, we installed GFI MailEssentials. Since then, our Exchange sever has been running properly and healthy. GFI MailEssentials absolutely took care of the the ever growing spam problem, and has made managing our email server a wonderful experience.
Over the past several months, we have experienced an exponential increase in the amount of spam our users were receiving. We had previous experience with GFI products and found them to be of excellent value, so we decided to try GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP. After installing GFI MailEssentials, I received numerous calls from our IT savvy staff stating that spam blocking was showing a 90% success rate. We have yet to enable the Bayesian filter, but if initial numbers are anything to go by, I expect that GFI MailEssentials will successfully identify 98% of the spam we receive. Thank you GFI for such a great and easy to use product!
I've been using GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP for a while now and it continues to impress me. I may not be your typical customer, given that I am a "one man band" software developer employing only a few contractors and my Exchange Server hosts only a handful of users (mainly family members in fact). I checked out your product when the tsunami of really inappropriate spam was hitting my kids' email boxes. GFI MailEssentials does the job particularly well, and I haven't even got enough traffic yet to turn on the Bayesian Analysis. The virus checking is excellent and works just the way it should!
With GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP, one of my clients was able to eliminate roughly 70% of our spam and this occurred even before we enabled the Bayesian filter! This is a great solution to help organizations cope with the growing spam problem. On top of it all, it's reasonably priced for even the smallest of businesses. I feel very comfortable recommending this solution to any of my clients. Thanks for the great product!
NetComm Consulting Services, Inc.
So far, I must say I am more than a little impressed with GFI and GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP. The installation was a breeze and did not require the "usual" server reboot. When I had a question and had to call tech support, a member of staff answered all of my questions and was very professional and helpful. Best of all, the product seems to be solving my client's spam problem. We have used GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP for two weeks now with no additional configuration and it seems to be intuitively improving its ability to identify and isolate spam messages, with very few false positives. I look forward to placing this product with other clients who may need this sort of solution. The cost is reasonable - a lot of "bang for the buck."

Starting our own business after several years in the IT industry, we knew that we would need spam and virus protection for our fledgling company. To that end, we purchased a 10 user licence of the GFI MailEssentials & GFI MailSecurity Suite 3 months ago and installed it on our new MS Exchange server. When we installed the suite, we immediately noticed the benefits that we gained by employing the bayesian spam filtering facility coupled with the e-mail exploit protection that is offered. On a daily basis, GFI has been filtering a couple of hundred spams mails with remarkable accuracy and no intervention from anyone after the initial training period. We have also had cause to contact GFI's support team regarding a query on some of the features that are available. The response was timely and courteous providing us with the information we required in a straight forward and useful manner. Today however, we feel that the suite has paid for itself at least 10 times over. With the outbreak of the MyDoom virus, we have received in the region of 600 (and counting) mails containing the payload. MailSecurity I am happy to report, has stopped them all.

GFI Mail Essentials for Exchange/SMTP is one of the best software programs we've ever bought. I think we've saved hundreds of hours of our staff's time already. No telling how much trash we're missing ... or NOT, depending upon how you would define it. Many of our email users have thanked me that they no longer have to deal with an inbox full of trash messages every day, especially the obscene images that are included in many adult spams these days. I would definitely endorse this product for any company that relies on e-mail communications.
HR Technologies, Inc.
I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with GFI MailEssentials. Spam had become a real problem in my organization and especially for me. I personally receive 100-200 emails each weekday, 96% of which is spam. My small consulting company (7 employees) receives around 700 emails each week of which 86% is spam. We were spending hours of billable time each month dealing with all this extra email. Before settling on GFI MailEssentials, I evaluated several Microsoft Exchange-based products, but I found GFI MailEssentials to be the most cost effective. GFI MailEssentials works as well as other leading products (at 10% of the price) and gives us the flexibility to put quarantined mail in separate folders which the user can then review himself. Thank you for saving me from spam!
I have been using GFI MailEssentials 9 with the new Bayesian filter for five weeks now. In this time I have only received two or three spam emails for all mailboxes (before, it was more than 50 spams a day). But most importantly, I have had zero false positives. Thanks a lot for this useful product.
GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP is a great program that has cut down over 3,000 messages per day from cluttering inboxes.
I have been using GFI MailEssentials 9 with the new Bayesian filter for one day and I am shocked and amazed. After installing, I had the Bayesian wizard go through a few thousand HAM messages and viola! It learned! I know one day is not much of a test but I have had zero false-positives. If this is a sign of things to come for catching my spam, I can't thank you enough for your product improvement.
Progressive Strategies, Inc.
GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP has more than met our needs for an anti-spam gateway product for our Exchange Server. Within days we were able to see a marked decline in the number of spam messages getting through, and a significant improvement in our Exchange Server performance since it no longer had to deal with queues filled with bogus mail.
Admiral Building Products
I can't applaud your GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP enough. It couldn't have been any easier to install and use. Immediately it has reduced our spam almost completely and as it "learns" it gets better. I have made lots of friends within our company thanks to GFI
GFI MailEssentials For Exchange/SMTP 9 has dropped the amount of SPAM into our Exchange box by 99% and the Bayesian wizard and learning mechanism is one of the best I've ever used.
Lamm Technical Resources
I'm glad there's an option that allows me to create a folder for emails tagged by the Bayesian filter. The reason? I can't believe that it's so accurate. I'm guessing about a 98-99% accuracy rate. I've not done anything with key words or black list simply because I don't see a need to. My biggest concern with my GFI MailEssentials 8 deployments was the amount of administration that my clients would encounter. GFI MailEssentials 9 eliminates that need. You guys really hit one out of the park.
Private Universe Pty Ltd
As a network infrastructure consultant and systems engineer, I deal with many clients in varied industries. For nearly three years I have been advising my clients on the benefits of GFI MailEssentials from a security and virus scanning perspective. More recently, with the proliferation of spam throughout the world, GFI MailEssentials & GFI MailSecurity are not just considered as a virus scanning gateway for email, but a critical component in my client's online strategy with respect to security and productivity. The latest version of GFI MailEssentials has taken huge strides in combating spam with its revolutionary "Bayesian" filter. Already I have deployed this technology onto my own network and to four of my clients' networks. The results thus far have been excellent. Over the next month or so, I expect to update the rest of my clients to GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP 9 and once the Bayesian 'learning' period is over, we expect to see most, if not all spam, eliminated from their inboxes. Another key benefit of GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity (I never use one without the other) is their ease of installation and configuration. I am able to deploy both products and configure to my clients' requirements within two hours. My business strategy is to provide my clients with a low maintenance, highly available, and secure network infrastructure to enable them to be more productive and reduce their overall TCO. GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP 9 is a key component of that strategy.

I installed GFI MailSecurity for Exchange/SMTP with no problems and thankfully it is keeping our mailboxes clean from viruses. I have been using GFI MailEssentials for about a year now and with GFI MailSecurity our mail is now free from viruses and virturally free from spam.

GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP is working well. I did not realize how much trash the people in our organization were getting in their email until we got your product. They appreciate the program and so do I.
Kudos to your folks who wrote MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP. Since we put it online, the flood of spam has dropped to a trickle. We used to get hit with about 500 mbs worth of spam a day. What's making it past the scanner is less than a Mb these days. This has also proven to be effective in keeping viruses such as the Sobig.F out. I just put the subject headings the virus uses into the scanner, and it dumps them when they hit the gate.
LFC Corporate Services, Inc.
Since I turned on the Baysian filter 5 days ago, GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP has caught 549 (98.2%) of SPAM emails to my personal email address, with only 3 HAMs deposited to my JunkMail folder. It is much more fun to check the JunkMail folder twice a week than it is to constantly receive SPAM to my Inbox.

GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP is probably the best anti-spam tool I've ever used! Instead of 90+ spam messages in my mailbox this morning, there were two. There was only one false positive, and this was because the sender was using a character set that I'd blocked. Our MD came to me this morning and described the results as "awesome".
GFI MailEssentials For Exchange is the SPAM STOPPER CHOICE. All I had to do was install it and with little configuration it began to catch all of our spam. Before MailEssentials For Exchange our company was receiving hundreds of spam emails a day which wasted precious employee time deleting them. Now we are 98% spam free and owe it all to GFI MailEssentials. Simple installation, easy configuration, and a user friendly interface make it a necessity for anyone serious about stopping spam.
The PGE Group
I downloaded GFI MailEssentials - installed it, configured it and I could not be happier. GFI MailEssentials was simple to configure and a breeze to install. I've watched as it eliminated 30 spam emails in as many minutes. In our first day alone, we had 671 messages processed and 562 of them were spam (84%). GFI MailEssentials is simple to use and maintain and is the most affordable, effective solution we've evaluated.
GFI has been one of the best software packages I have seen in quite some time. The time it saves all of our users removing and organizing spam was well worth it. It was a Slam Dunk to install and set up and is very user-friendly for ongoing administration. It reduced the spam on our mail server tenfold. I would highly recommend GFI for Exchange/SMTP servers.
The install was a breeze, and so far it has caught every spam message, and blocked 0 wanted messages!
We love this product! GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP is extremely effective at eliminating our spam. It drives me crazy when I run the reports of how much spam it got rid of vs. how much was good mail. About 87% of all mail that comes to our office is spam!

We have been using GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity to act as an email firewall in front of our internal mail server. This works extremely well as we are able to keep our internal mail server off the Internet and relay internet emails to the GFI MailEssentials/MailSecurity server. In 6 months, GFI MailSecurity has blocked 282 viruses and 239 dangerous attachments, and in 3 months GFI MailEssentials has blocked 169 spam emails. We have also purchased GFI FAXmaker and are looking forward to trying the rest of GFI's innovative software.
All went well with the GFI MailEssentials install: It was simple. Overnight, the spam intake in my Inbox alone has dropped from 20-30 overnight to 1 this morning. I LIKE IT!!!
GFI MailEssentials is great. Most of my users have gone from 20-30 spam mails a day to 2 or 3.
Two years ago, three virus attacks in as many months prompted me to search for a new network wide solution to email security. I settled on GFI Mail essentials which has since been split into GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity. Since then I have not had one virus make it into our systems. This program works exactly as described, and requires very little attention to do its job with 100% effectiveness. Combined with GFI MailEssentials which is over 98% effective at removing our spam without eliminating email we need, it is the perfect solution for our office.

We use GFI MailEssentials at our office and we recommend it to clients from experience. It is a great product. Very easy to configure and with some tweaking after initial installation, works nearly perfectly.
Without a doubt, GFI's MailSecurity software has saved Tayburn and myself from a whole lot of heartache. This little gem of software integrates seamlessly with our Exchange Server and has saved us from hundreds of potentially devastating viruses. Also the great reporting tools bundled with GFI MailEssentials enable me to cast trend reports and shine some light as to where all our bandwidth goes.
Thanks to GFI's products, Tayburn have achieved a rock solid email infrastructure with no unplanned downtime. What else can I say: Great product, price and fantastic support.
GFI MailEssentials and GFI MailSecurity have been an important part of Sysnet's security infrastructure for many years now. In that time both products have proved themselves invaluable on more than one occasion. Coupled with the services offered online by GFI.com, and other add-on software (for example for ISA Server), GFI products have made our job easier and our network more secure. Many thanks!

I have been using GFI's email security products for over 3 years. Thanks to GFI MailSecurity's innovative filtering technique, we have succeeded in blocking the dangerous virus, PE_BUGBEAR.B - before our antivirus engines were updated against it! Thanks to GFI MailEssentials, spam in our mailboxes has diminished by more than 40%! I heartily advise system administrators to try these products out to see for themselves how effective GFI MailSecurity and GFI MailEssentials are!
I installed GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP and it works great. The software appears to place no burden on my email server and works exactly as advertised. I'll consider other GFI products in the future since I have had success with GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP.
The installation was SO easy, I almost thought I did something wrong! GFI MailEssentials is a great product - so good!
Everything is going well with GFI MailEssentials! The installation worked perfectly and I'm amazed by the success of the filtering capabilities. Initially some emails from reliable sources were filtered, but once we configured the blacklists and whitelists appropriately, we ARE in control of the emails we get, while ORDB or SPAMHAUS databases takes care of the rest. Also, GFI's proactive Technical Support personnel helped us understand the best configuration for our case. It's an excellent product, and a great team of people working behind it!
The addition of the auto-add feature to the spam-filtering whitelist in the new version of GFI MailEssentials was the key selling point for us. This takes a huge load off our shoulders in managing the application.
GFI MailEssentials is a very good product. These are two features that really stand out:
1. Ease of installation, and ease of use - the product is intuitive, and easy to navigate, without the need to refer to user manuals, and
2. The on-demand reporting feature that allows me to quickly identify the top users, or users who abuse emails.

Installation of GFI MailEssentials on my server went very smoothly. GFI MailEssentials was very effective in filtering spam. Sometimes it worked too well, as it was filtering legitimate mail - BUT, effective configuration of the whitelist solved these problems!
GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP enjoys an excellent reputation as an Exchange Server add-on and was highly recommended by literature in the field. We installed GFI MailEssentials on 30 January: On 26 January I received 225 spams; on 30 January, I received 8. System-wide, 12,444 spams were caught during the last 24 days, averaging 497.76 spams per day. As I noted in a report to management recommending our purchase of this product: If it took an average email user 10 seconds to evaluate email messages as important or spam and another 2 seconds to delete each spam, our organization saved 41.48 hours of paid employee time that would have been spent deleting spam.
Mark T. Gibson MCSE CNA MCP
I was impressed by how easy GFI MailEssentials was to set up and how quickly it started to block spam. Within the first hour of implementation, GFI MailEssentials had blocked over 20 spam messages. On an average, over 200 spam emails are being blocked each day, and as a result, we are not wasting time deleting junk email. I definitely recommend GFI MailEssentials for any size company. Thank you GFI!

Over the last 5 months, we have successfully eliminated 99% of our spam with your product. I never realized how much junk mail came in to our server. I was amazed because we only authorize about 100 people for Internet email.

I had my doubts about other programs since they still let spam through. GFI MailEssentials is doing what I want, not what the program wants.
