Postini Exiting ISP Business?

We're in the same boat as Paul and have been investigating McAfee Email 
Protection (used to be MX Logic). A bit more expensive than Postini, but 
also more full featured. Additional options can be added on as well, 
like archiving & outbound encryption.

We've thought about deploying a virtual appliance in our datacenter like 
Barracuda but kind of don't want to have to deal with administering it 
all ourselves in house. Outsourcing is attractive to us for this service.
