I'm also interested in this. I posted a message a few months ago inquiring 
about virus scanners for amavisd and linux, but it seems there are very few.

We all have clamav+sanesecurity, but what others are people using?
Sophos is horrible. Hardly worth it. It doesn't scan for nearly any of the 
popular vectors now.

I tried to get F-Secure to install, but also had a problem there.

Someone offered information on Avira, but then just never responded, and their 
website says nothing about Linux.

Anyone have success with other virus scanners on Linux/amavisd?
