    I am looking for a good anti-virus/anti-spam software for my SBS2003 box.
    I run exchange, so I would also like this software to monitor all incoming
    and outgoing emails.
    I would also like it to be able to tell if there is aclient machine that
    seems to be pushing a lot of emails through it. (meaning if there is a
    virus, or malware on a client machine and it's usign the exchange server so
    send out spams)

    You might want to check out Sophos Small Business Edition. Have been using it
    for over 4 years now and find it to be one of the best.

    True, I forgot to add, my TM is AV, and for anti-spam for Windows based
    clients is Surf Control.

    And checkout Microsoft Antigen for Exchange with Antigen Spam Manager
    If you will be moving to SBS2008 eventually then it uses Microsoft
    ForeFront (old name Antigen) antivius/antispam and it's fully
    intergrated within the new SBS...comers with multiply antivirus
    engines Sophos, CA Vet, Kaspersky,Norman Data Defense, Microsoft
    Antimalware .it's a lowish cost 12mth subscription...30day demo.

    Hello, Johnfli:

    My replies/comments are in-line, below:

    I have been using Sunbelt Software's Ninja E-mail Security with great
    results. They have a fully-functional eval version, and I heartily
    recommend including it among your test solutions.

    The only choice for anti-spam if you want to have control over it is ORFEE.
    I'm running Trend for anti-virus at the moment but regretting it; I've had
    two worms and a drive-by come straight through in the last few months when
    they were picked-up instantly by the NOD32 that I use at home.
