Why not? I'm doing virus scanning (ClamAV) and SpamAssassin at SMTP time
on incoming mail for about 20,000 users (about 250 messages/minute). I
picked up a pair of 1U rackmount servers (each under 1800 Euro last year)
for this, and there's lots of excess capacity (which is the way I like it).
It seems pretty practical to me :-).
