Ditch the Symantec product would be a good start.

In my experience most of the antivirus vendors make pretty poor antispam applications.

You need to look at a dedicated antispam application.
The most frequently suggested is GFI Mail Essentials.
However I have had good results with greylisting. GFI ME can do greylisting, but I usually use another product - Vamsoft ORF.

Have you got IMF enabled? If not then I would turn that on as well. While it is an additional application, the more the better and it is free.

If you are using the POP3 connector to collect email then you need to reconsider and get email delivered directly by SMTP with your MX records pointing to your server. The most effective antispam applications work on the point of connection so that the link can be dropped without delivery.

We used ORF Enterprise and had a lot of success with it.  The good part is that it's very cheap at $198.

Here are some reviews on for it over the past year: http://www.msexchange.org/software/Anti-Spam/ORF-Enterprise-Edition/Comments/

Windows Defender is a Windows consumer product. This question is about protection for Exchange server, which is certainly not something you will find in the home.
