My favorite is using MimeDefang (http://www.mimedefang.org/)
as a sendmail milter with it using spamassassin and clam av
to scan at the system level, discarding viruses and rejecting
only very high spam scores but tagging the spamassassin score
in the header so individuals can choose their own level to
filter with procmail or outlook rules.

Running as a milter lets it reject at the SMTP level based
on the scan results (so you don't have to return a bounce
message) and will only do one scan for messages that get
delivered to multiple addresses.
