    Boy, I'm just posting up a storm today. Any suggestions as to which one to
    use and why? For a fleeting second I thought about possibly using both, but
    I figured trying to keep track of one SPAM filter would be enough and two
    would just be a nightmare.

    Thanks,
    Phil

  2. I find Trend's to be a lot easier to setup and maintain. I'm sure they're
    both good and you can't go wrong with your decision.
