Sendmail has always worked well for me.  But there are several very good
MTAs out there that you can choose from.

Regardless of the MTA I recommend you implement greylisting and
spamassassin to take care of the spam.  This combination will nail
almost 100% of spam coming into your system.  And the benefit of
greylisting is that it will reduce the resources used on your box for
spam detection to a negligible level.

And for virus detection I have heard clamav is what you want to use.
