A better price then Mcafee which is 2.5 k/2 years ~25 Users and you have to
pay per user.
Vexira Mail Armor seems to be the best price of the commercials 199 per
Domain max of 6000 mailboxes.
I am possibly going to Vexira on my sites together with clamav for the
coming year at which point the clamav database may be more in line with
commercial vendors database. There is a sigtool utility which allows one to
create signatures for detect viri. These can be applied locally and
submitted for inclusion in database. Again the success of clamav will
depend on us submitting signatures.
