Use the MTA you are most familiar with. Asking for opinions will not
help you to manage any of those 3 any better, but even may call for a
religious MTA war. I like Sendmail, others Postfix or Exim. Each of them
has advantages and disadvantages. (No, I don't call for comments by
qmail patch assassins ;)
ClamAV is a really good anti-virus application. SpamAssassin can help
you too to lower the amount of crap filling your inbox.

That outgoing mail scenario kicks out Postfix which does not support
sender based routing. Sendmail and Exim can do so.
