Looking for a new inbound-/outbound- SMTP virus scanning solution on Linux (SLES, to be exact).

We're looking for fresh ideas for a new solution that doesn't require a whole lot of cash and is fairly reputable. What we have right now is driving us ka-raaaaazy!!!
I'm currently using McAfee WebShield SMTP for Windows, which has proven functional yet unreliable and seems to be near end-of-life as McAfee is trying to hype up their appliances), and we currently have a slew of their other virus scanning products for our servers and client PCs, so the use of McAfee virus scanning software is preferable (since they update their virus definition files rather often).
Filtering spam isn't so much of a big deal, we have an internal tool that does that very well (Gwava).
A friend, for instance, is using clam-av + sendmail + spamassassin, but I'm a little leery of using a free virus scanner like Clam-AV for a large enterprise that gets hammered with viruses and spam... unless someone can convince me otherwise.
Anyone got any ideas on how to put together a mostly-open-source virus scanning solution that will get the job done for a 6000+ user environment and not leave our heads spinning in the process?
