	Are we talking virus protection ?

	You might want to look at something like amavisd-new or clamav in
	SMTP proxy mode.

	Amavisd-new together with clamav and SpamAssassin will block a big
	chunk aof spam and viruses.

	Some vendors like Barracuda and IronPort do this as well, if you're
	willing to pay.
