HI

Asking for all those items in 1 place is asking for quite a lot. I would suggest that you look at the Sonicwall range. The product below looks like it does antivirus, spam. I am not sure if it will do the VPN but you can always add another sonicwall product onto the item below to provide the VPN and the Firewall part.

http://www.sonicwall.com/us/197.html

There is a system that will allow you to have all the features in one box and that would be to use a Linux box, you could run a linux server as a firewall, vpn end point and then run Sendmail with Mailscanner for email virus scanning and then run Spam Assassin for the antispam.

I personally would get a hardware based firewall that handles the VPN then run the antivirus and antispam on the email server/another server.

Hope this helps
