Just purchase an anti-spam license and activate it at the SonicWall license portal.

I would like to recommend you SONICWALL HOSTED EMAIL SECURITY ADVANCED. It is more helpful and if you are using Office365 or GSuite, go for SonicWall Cloud App Security.

It is more powerful.

Hi, for SonicWall you buy a license and on the same firewall you can activate the antispam only in the ingress mode. 

But there is a catch, at the moment they don't support TLS for SMTP so I would recommend their other solution, that has email security for appliance and virtualized on VMware or Hyper-V.

Hi, pfSense is better solution for small business. Pro : It's open source product and can be used with dedicate box such as Netgate. Good community support. Very cheap solution, one time cost, no subscription or license renewal. Work perfectly, Monitoring and control is best in class. Cons: Complex in configuration, Require good technical knowledge. Using Netgate 6100 with 400 endpoints with auto configuration settings working good.

They are pretty much the same... OPNsense has a better GUI... The community in pfSense is much bigger... OPNSense has more frequent updates... but other than that... you can not make mistakes...
