A month or so ago, we started showing up on several internet blacklists out there, so I scanned all the PC's at our office (or most of them, anyway), thought I'd found the problem, and got us removed from all of the blacklists. In the process, I signed up for AOL's feedback loop so I'd know if problems started again (AOL was one of the mail services that was blocking emails from our IP). Starting yesterday, I'm receiving lots of reports about abusive emails coming from our IP again! I'm trying to find a way to figure out which PC (or PC's are infected)...is there an easy way to do it? We have about 20 on our network. I'm willing to scan each one manually, but if someone could guide me to the best products for doing so, I'd appreciate it!! And, what about any products to keep spam from getting OUT of our network? Is there such a thing? I'm a one-woman show here, so any help would be appreciated!

Are you using a firewall? If so which one?
