We use Antigen from sybari.  it works great.

You can use mulitple virus DATs, which really helps when a virus is first 
discovered, plus they make their own signatures for worms that you can also 
use.  ...however, if you do get this, do not enable the automatic alerts for 
virus senders, or at least not for external addresses.  we are getting TONs of 
these types of messages to users telling them that an email they sent cannot be 
delivered because it contains a virus.  ..but sobig.f (and many others) forge 
the from field, so these message are not being sent to the person that is 
actually infected!!!  ..just causing additional confusion.

Subject:        [exchangelist] Antivirus Software to Send Back Infected E-mail

Hi does anyone use an antivirus program. That automatically returns and
infected E-mail to the sender, and stops it appearing in the users inbox.
Our current antivirus solution "CA E-trust" just removes the infected
attachment, so the body of the E-mail appears in the user's inbox.
Consequently we have users with hundreds of So-Big Emails cluttering their
inboxes. A preferred solution would be the users never see the infected
E-mail at all, only the sender gets a notification. The other acceptable
solution would be, the user just gets a notification from the AV agent that
a virus infect E-mail from "smith@xxxxxxxxxxxx" was blocked.
For this solution to be useful to me if would have to work with exchange 5.5
which we are currently running and Exchange 2003 which we intend to upgrade
