I've never tried Vexira as we are happy with our Postfix/Amavis setup
running some bigger mailserver setups (+10k user each, some clustered).
As backend-scanner we used Kaspersky (kavdaemon) but switched to F-Prot
a few days ago as kavdaemon crashed at random intervals on some servers
while others run rock-stable.
Both, Kaspersky and F-Prot can use a daemon as backend which speeds up
the scanning-process significantly if you have larger amounts of mails
going through your system.
For US $ 300 per server you can get the Fileserver-Version of F-Prot
which includes the daemon-scanner and it seems like there are no
additional fees (like subscription, updates, ...)
Installation on Debian is really straightforward and even supported!
