Hermes Antispam Proxy
Hermes is a generic, transparent, multi-platform anti-spam SMTP proxy that uses a combination of techniques (like greylisting, throttling, etc.) to stop spam from reaching your mailbox. It's compatible with most SMTP extensions like STARTTLS (for SSL security) and SMTP-AUTH (for user authentication).
It's main strength is ease of configuration as you don't have to modify your current email setup and can work in combination with other spam filtering solutions.
