What anti-virus and anti-spam software do you run right now? So, you
have ruled out your server is not an open relay, and is virus free?

On-top of what Chris Wall said about GFI, I would personally recommend
TrendMicro's ScanMail. XWall is another popular
one. Sybari Anti-Gen... etc...


P.S. I was called to other duties, so I did not get a chance to append
to my first reply and then compliment what Chris said, and continue on
with other suggestions.
