Default How to deal with 98% spam? (corporate case)

Please let us all know what solution you end up with. I can see
the benefit of your whitelist idea, and know of problems with any
mail addresses being (historically) on websites.

98% does seem a major problem - I was getting a lot of junk mail
at one time (44000 items one day alone) but seem to have cut it
back a lot (K9 shows 98% accuracy for detection of spam over an
11 month period for which this data has been collected, so I've
certainly got it down a lot...

By coincidence total incoming items processed by K9 is around
45000, of which ~33% is valid. The rest does gets marked as
spam but is not deleted. With your situation on ISDN I can
see deletion being near essential to limit the quantity of
mail. I've made a big reduction in junk mail for one of my
clients (which had some mail addresses on their site back in
'96) and will ask them if they'll let you contact them direct,
if you're interested. I will be visiting them this afternoon,
by chance, so will mention it to their IT guy - they're happy
with their mail service now, after replacing MS Exchange with
MDaemon (Exchange was on an NT server which died a year ago,
corrupting their mail database and was costly to restore).
