If I've already got Postini what value add would installing GroupShield for Exchange provide??? More specifically internal emails within the co.

Apparently, the besieged, [URL="http://www.mcafee.com"]McAfee[/URL] antivirus-protected world saw little relief in the past 24 hours with McAfee engineers still scrambling to come forth with an answer.

Safety, that is, from the ‘how safe are the links they deliver and you click’ angle. Now, for the longest time, I have harbored a passing suspicion that the dodgiest links you can follow from any search …
