What about the extra price involved in maintaining the filters, filtering
out spam that got past the filters, etc? Storage that does nothing but sit
there and occasionally gets backed up (even though it's not common to back
up a mail spool, I think, due to its nature) vs. employees maintaining
lists, reading spam, inputing additional filters, etc - I think I can see
which is cheaper. :-)
