You can look into clamAV.
But if SpamAssassin is too resource intensive I think you will find
antivirus scanners to be even more so.
clamav+spamassassin scanning in daemon mode takes 10-20 seconds per message.
spamassassin scanning in daemon mode takes 2-3 seconds per message.
This is based on a Pentiume-II 400MHz 512MB RAM.
A very solid set-up that I have is to use postfix + amavisd-new + clamav +
spamassassin. It is a little intense in that it will readily suck up the
better part of my 512MB of RAM. But it does it all.
However, I have to limit the processes to ~10. Still tweaking the values.
I'm not sure what resources you are worried about, but I've given you some
stats to help you decide. AntiVirus scanning is pretty intense work.
