I'm using exim(4)+exiscan-acl, which is about as easy as virus scanning can
ever be. It required about five lines of config change in exim, all of which
are completely transparent. Plus, it denies mail at the DATA step, which
reduces use of my disks, processor, memory, time... and it will never send
a bounce itself. (Bounces can still be generated, if the virus has passed
through a relay - but most email viruses these days talk to the server

Spamassassin is easy too - it's set up as a transport filter, so that was one
line in the config.

I really like that setup...
