The requirement for Integration may thus shorten the list of possible solutions.

However dropping foreign spam filters is not always a desirable option. For one, many organizations run a non-Windows platform at the DMZ i.e. the place where email hygiene is run. These filters often lack Exchange integration. Others may be employing a Firewall Appliance, or filtering spam at some service provider on the internet.

No matter why you are running a foreign spam filter, this video shows how achieving Exchange Integration is easy. It shows how to do this for any of Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010.
