server side anti virus for mail traffic; postfix as mta


I'm looking for a solution to do server side anti virus scanning in mail traffic with about 100 of different domains ... as mail transport agent I'm using Postfix 2.0 and as OS Debian 3.0r1. Mail traffic is about 10 GB / month.


I know that there are couple of products available. The ones I know of and my comments regarding them are following:


RAV Antivirus: This is a pretty nice product - but too expensive if you intend to use it with a lot of different domains. And the OPEN LICENCE is just too expensive also ...

Clam AV: Looks like a nice product, free, updated but I'd need extensive tests (inlcuding performance tests).

Sophos: Looks like a nice one - but I didn't find any prices ... so if anybody knows. Price? Update time? (unlimited ?)



For the german speaking people I found a short article ... I have a goodie for people interested in mail server (pop3, imap, webinterface, anti virus) in general here and another one



BTW, anything regarding anti virus and postfix will be greatly appreciated :-) (even if you have critics, etc which is important BTW)

I'm curious... are you setting up a mail server for a large network or just for one at home with Windows boxes on your LAN?

Windows boxes at my LAN ? The only Windows box at my LAN is being used for Online Banking *lol* :-)

No I'm setting up a mail server for a Class C network ... basic settings are SMTP AUTH and POP-before-SMTP.

You probably misunderstood what I tried to say ... on my home net there is 1 Windows box (for online banking).

The network that will be protected consists of clients using 95% Windows machines ... should be the mail server for our clients!
