The clamav is not a bad solution (although I wouldn't recommend it to a
company). I don't think my home server let any viruses through, but then I
don't work on windows so it could be that one has passed and I didn't
notice. they have woody debs on their site, but you'll have to install
qmail-scanner from source (get it from "http://www.qmail.org";).

If you want a commercial one then kaspersky has a package for debian with
qmail (although their package have some bugs. if I remember correctly you
have to check the owner of /usr/sbin/qmail-que* and make sure they're not
owned by root, also you have to write a script to start their service).
