I have been using McAffee GroupShield for a long time, both on 5.5 and
2000, and it has always worked very well. The EX2000 version has a nice
MMC snap-in that makes it very easy to configure.
One problem I have found though is its compatibility with anti-spam
software for EX2000. GFI support have confirmed to me that it is not
compatible with MailEssentials, and another anti-spam product I looked
at was not listing GS as compatible. As far as I can see McAfee do not
have an anti-spam product for EX2000 in their product range currently.
Obviously you are only looking at exchange plug-ins and not windows
server AV products? As you cannot run the latter on an exchange server.

We're looking at some antivirus products.  We now need to choose between
McAfee and Sophos.  This may be too off-topic but it is in regard to
scanning e-mail.
