I use mcafee virusscan for linux. the only downside is it's linked against
libc5. but it works good. they update often. i will also be using 
sophos antivirus very soon(bought it today), i used the eval back in
december '00 and it worked very well too. i also used AVP and it also
worked well. for the email side of it i use amavis (amavis.org) its
a decent scanner, but its slower then some others so you may need
more beefy hardware if your doing a lot of traffic. e.g. i just got
a dual p3-866 512MB with dual 15000rpm drives in raid0 mainly to handle
the load of antivirus scanning. the MTA i use is sendmail 8.9.3 and
i also use sendmail 8.11.3.

if you want names/emails of the sales guys ive been dealin with i can
give em to you. it was difficult to track down someone to sell me
mcafee for linux. oh and all of my mail servers are potato.
