RAVantivirus works well, I have been evaluating it on one of my home 
networks (60-day free trial).  But they want $300US for the mail server 
version, which is a bit much for a home networker; they have offered me 
a 20% discount, but will check some of the other choices first; still a 
bit expensive.  If they'd bring the price down I'd buy it right now.
