Been focused most of the day on getting the final details in place for the Notes/Domino 8.5.1 launch.  In the process, one of the interesting bits of product information I came across was the scoop on how Lotus Protector for Mail Security 2.5 has some nice integration with the Notes 8.5.1 client.  Specifically, starting in Notes 8.5.1, there's direct wiring between an end-user's mailbox and the Protector spam filtering:

A convenient new button on the Lotus Notes 8.5.1 action bar instructs the Lotus Protector for Mail Security gateway to block all future email from the sender of a selected email in the inbox.  Users can also quickly and easily recover inadvertently quarantined email. A new view in the Lotus Notes 8.5.1 inbox displays content sent to them, but blocked and stored at the Lotus Protector for Mail Security gateway.  Blocked messages can either be forwarded to their inbox, or deleted right at the gateway, saving time for both users and administrators.  Users can specify the senders for which the Lotus Protector for Mail Security gateway will either send to their inbox, or block from delivery.

Block sender from Notes inbox
Linked value across Protector and Notes/Domino is just one new aspect to Protector 2.5 -- there is new zero level analysis antispam technology, new hardware configurations, and significant improvement to system performance.  All adds up to a nice story for anti-spam and anti-virus.
