A post (anti-spam-) retirement note

One of the anti-spam companies I was/am involved with, MailChannels, made an interesting announcement recently about a commercial offering for SpamAssassin. What makes the announcement interesting to me is that Justin Mason (who wrote SpamAssassin) is also an advisor to MailChannels.

The program, Traffic Control 3 for SpamAssassin, is a free download and for sites that process less than 10,000 messages per day there's no charge at all (and no need to go and get a license from MailChannels).

Basically, the new product acts as a front-end to SpamAssassin traffic shaping incoming messages so that load is taken off SpamAssassin and the mail server.
