Best option would be to first try options available on exchange 2003 (with sp2).

Connection filtering
Sender filtering
Recipient filtering
Last but not the least IMF.

If you use all of these (which i do) you can cut off over 80% of spam with no extra cost... As far as it comes to scanning inbound and outbound emails for virus .... take a low powred box, install IIS with smtp and install the AV software there..... smart host outbound emails to this box and point the firewall to IIS to be forwarded to exchange...

This was exchange performs really well and there is no need for any application on the server trying to hook itslef to exchange and trying to clean viruses...

GFI and Symantec is a good choice provided we are aware of all the options available and how to configure them.
