there is a product called AvMailGate from Antivir. It's a MTA like Daemon who
is listen on port 25 and sending all scaned mail by calling sendmail or by tcp
to a specified server:port. It is important that all your clients sending mail
through your AvMailGate to prevent sending unscaned mail.

AvMailGate is pretty cool, there are automatic update scripts and you dont
need any changes on your sendmail/postfix and cyrus configuration.
