    I didn't see your earlier query but I'll try to answer this one.

    One of the ways to this is to install MailScanner from When properly installed, this separates
    your mail on your existing server into multiple queues - for example, I
    have a mail queue that receives the incoming mail, lets MailScanner scan
    it, and then it moves the mail to an outgoing queue for more processing.

    MailScanner is fairly powerful and supports multiple virus scanning
    engines. There is detailed documentation on their web site. You can
    do spam filtering too if you want.
