Windows.  We provide Samba, hence we support Windows clients.

Similar to the "Windows support" through Samba, there's ClamAV (Debian package "clamav") that can scan for viruses server-side (placed on a Samba share and/or as an email filter.

For scanning within certain types of archives non-free tools are needed.

For use as an email filter I have very good experience using AMaViS (Debian package (amavisd-new) together with Postfix. I don't know which variant of AMaViS is best for use together with Exim, the default MTA in Debian.
