Default Spamsnake - intergrated firewall

Is there a simple way to integrate Spamsnake with a firewall gateway type set up with 2 Network interfaces?

I want to stop spam at the firewall before it makes it onto our internal network.

Thanks,

Matt

Hey,

That can possibly be done, however, the Spamsnake would be your mail gateway and will stop spam before it reaches your lan. It must accept the mails, then scan them to determine whether they are spam or not. I do recommend keeping the snake on a seperate box.
