I really like MailScanner. You can add it to your current system with very 
little effort, and add virus scanning very easily.
You will still need to spend time training and maybe write an occasional 
spamassassin rule, but that is just the nature of the game anymore. Spam 
changes constantly, and you have to change with it.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
