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.
