I like it because it tends to block out some of the things that shouldn't get in our inboxes, but they somehow end up in our mailboxes sometimes, not a big deal. The main thing that needs to be blocked out is any phishing and it keeps those emails out!

I suggest WatchGuard because they offer so much. They offer the way to keep email and websites blocked that don't belong and they also help us connect to the server whenever we remote in from work. Everything is done with so much ease and there is not any hassle.
