RE: to set up mail scanning gateway

If I understand your question correctly then what you need to do is forward
inbound emails to your Symantec AV gateway.  You can set this up in your
mailertable....located at /etc/mail/mailertable....

Example entry
Test.com		smtp:symantec.test.com

Of course you will need a dns entry for your smtp server...let me know if
this was what you were looking for.

is in my previous mail.

I didn't see your earlier query but I'll try to answer this one.

One of the ways to this is to install MailScanner from
http://www.mailscanner.info.  When properly installed, this separates your
mail on your existing server into multiple queues - for example, I have a
mail queue that receives the incoming mail, lets MailScanner scan it, and
then it moves the mail to an outgoing queue for more processing. 

MailScanner is fairly powerful and supports multiple virus scanning engines.
There is detailed documentation on their web site.  You can do spam
filtering too if you want.
