Today we’re announcing that Google Message Security will be offered free to current and new eligible K12 Google Apps customers that opt-in to Google Message Security – powered by Postini – by July 2010. Google Message Security lets administrators limit messages based on who they’re from, who they’re going to, or the content they contain. Message rules can be applied to groups of users, making it easy to customise the scheme for different groups (for instance younger students, older students, and teachers). via Official Google Australia Blog.

There really are no excuses any more. Paying a truck load of money to some little company run by hillbillies to provide lousy support and a product that doesn’t work for no tangible benefit over a FREE set of tools that are world-class… We have to do better soon.
