The most secure way to do this is to set up a firewall for eg. Firewall-1 by checkpoint technologies. (http://www.checkpoint.com). This runs daemons that enable it to scan e-mail for viruses in what is known as a holding-bay before it hits the network or is sent. This is the only reliable and fail-safe way to do this if you are serious about network security.
