virus protection of e-mail gateway


Has anyone had any experience with the available virus scanners for sendmail. I have been looking at the various commercial distributions such as rav and avp, etc. the pricing on the rav software is the only one which seems resonable for a linux server with less than 50 mailboxes. Is the option of using a scanner, such as amavis, and filters or a desktop virus scanner program a viable option.
I want to stop viruses before they reach desktops of any OS.

I was recently attacked by sircam through an out of date desktop scanner, which then passed through my LAN. ARGGHH.

Kind thanks to all replys
Gavin

Here’s the combo I went with:

Mail scanner program:

Antivirus program:

It was easy to install and seems to work well.
