I use MimeDefang ( as milter in Sendmail. This is a
perl milter that supports several extensions. Scanning for spam is done
by SpamAssassin and i'm currently configuring the machine to use Norman
Antivirus ( to scan for virusses.

MimeDefang works at my server, but it's just a personal home server with
four IMAP accounts. I have read some complains about MimeDefang on
(very) busy servers but I can't find these resources right now.
