I'm running Symantec Mail Filtering for Exchange, and there is the option to scan at the Store level, or the SMTP inbound level....Which one would be more secure?  We are running a single Exchange 2000 box using an SMTP Virtual Server....I'm thinking it should be set at SMTP inbound, no?  Seems like alot of viruses are getting caught after they've already been put in the "Deleted Items" folder, or after they've reached the users mailbox....

I recommend scanning at the Store level. This way you can catch any viruses that are sent by users to each other who are members of the same store or storage group.
