Officially - no.
I'd recommend Kaspersky or drweb32. The have close to similar functionality
on the server side.

I am using kaspersky mail server antivirus - it seamlessly integrates into
most of exisiting mail servers under unix (sendmail, qmail, exim, postfix).
The only reason is they have offered free beta evaluation to me.

Nothing bad as for me :)
Oh, yeah - McAfee doesn't have suitable software solution - only combined
with hardware. Nothing bad but the cost...

Concerning what?
As for number of viruses - McAfee and Kaspersky.
As for friendly user interface - I don't care. It is server solution for me,
so config files are ok. :)
As for size - drweb32.

I'd recommend QMail. Why? - Read some mailing lists... And this is commonly
the question of religion.

Wish you good luck in this constant war!
