Re: Barracuda Networks

"I just wanted to let you know that we have decided to keep the Barracuda Spam Firewall. As a matter a fact, we wouldn't dream of giving it back. The box is doing an excellent job of reducing our spam to an almost non-existent state.

"As well we were very pleased with the Tech Support provided by Shaun [from Optrics]. He is very knowledgeable and always steered us in the right direction."
