    there is Dovecot aswell.

    If Id were you Id use one that you can intergrade with a Windows Virus Scanner.
    Eg. ClamAV. And Id also make that a IDS can check it.. eg. Snort.
    I havnt set this up yet.
    but I have heard about a cool Linux System for Servers. Its kinda like this

    Bind ClamAV to SendMail for scans. Bind Squid to ClamAV. Bind Snort to Squid, SendMail and ClamAV. Put it in a ChrootJail. And Install SELinux.

    Basicly you get:
    SeLinux+IPtables(CHROOT{Snort -> (Squid -> ClamAV -> SendMail)})


    Then everything is holding everything.
    But as I already said I havnt tryed this ever...
