It is not just financial resources - it is also a factor of time to
build a filter / set of filters from scratch (even with spamassasin +
bogofilter you need to train it extensively, and tweak its rulesets to
suit your mail flow).
Sometimes outsourcing corporate / isp mail handling to a provider like
us, criticalpath, postini etc might be a good way to go.
Or you might elect to get a managed antispam solution that plugs into
your mta (kind of like brightmail or spamsquelcher.org)

The unix way - one tool per job. Build a mail system out of components
- it is often the best way to go.
