+hermes is a GPL anti-spam solution that will help you get rid of (most) UCE.
+
+It's key features are:
+
+* Multiplatform:
+  hermes runs on Linux, Solaris and even on Windows.
+
+* Transparent:
+  Although clients will connect to hermes, hermes won't display any message of
+  its own or alter in any way the communications with your real mail server,
+  except at the moment of greylisting.
+
+* Efficient:
+  We have gone to great lengths to make hermes as efficient as possible, both
+  for your computer and for the SMTP server that it proxies.
+
+* Configurable:
+  hermes is highly configurable, from greylisting time to logging method and
+  everything in between.
+* Extension friendly:
+  We support most SMTP extensions such as SMTP-AUTH and STARTTLS.
+
+* Compatible:
+  You can use hermes in combination with other techniques such as nolisting or
+  Bayesian Filtering either on the client side or on the server side (or both
+  if you prefer). You can also use fakehermes to fake a secondary smtp server
+  and further reduce your spam.
