I use ASSP, http://www.asspsmtp.org/wiki/Welcome
It works very well. Make sure your spam filter has at least bayesian
filtering, and grey listing, with grey listing being the first check, as
it stops 90+% of all spam and is cheap in CPU and bandwidth usage. In
fact once I turned on grey listing my spam went down from about 20 a
week to 0 a week.
I never really found dedicated virus filtering to be very effective,
since viruses will be filtered out by other means anyways.
