i have always been of the opinion when it comes to AV or spam software you get what you pay for. I certainly wouldn't compromise on price when it comes to protecting my exchange server.

No such thing as free Anti-Virus / Anti-Spam software for Exchange I'm afraid.
How many users are you protecting and what OS are you running?

you could try Trend scanmail for about $25 per client..
http://us.trendmicro.com/us/products/enterprise/scanmail-for-microsoft-exchange/

Couple of things to look out for...

You need a quick reaction time in this game, too late and your out...
Minimizing false positives, regular updates but with reliable engines..
Let others muck around with kasb... And AV.. and waste their time, how much are you worth per hour?

Or just stop attachments, emails in text only, no surfing and you could survive without it...

The choice of AV and Antispam software is depends on size of the organization, email volume, budget..etc..etc..

Note : There are built-in technologies for Exchange 2007 to block SPAM and Virus which is well enough for a small organization.

basically they have 20 clients with 1 2k8 SBS Server.

Brightmail Anti-Virus / AntiSpam for 20 users would cost GBP 25.71 per user or GBP 514.20
Symantec Multi-Tier Protection Small Business would cost GBP 978.00 for 20 users - but this also covers the clients too.
Panda Security for Exchange Servers is coming out at GBP 585.20 for 20 users
GFI Mail Security for Exchange / SMTP comes out at GBP 256.00 for 20 users
So GFI is looking good so far.

Not sure if GFI needs to additional purchase of Anti-Virus updates with it - if it does - it will cost more!

There is such a thing as free AV/AS for exchange... This was posted on your other question, which was deleted by the moderator.

One free antispam product I know is the built in spam filtering options with Exchange 2007.  If this is a small, non-commercial install, you can use zen.spamhaus.org in exchange for your ip block list provider.  See more info here: http://www.spamhaus.org/zen/index.lasso 

You can also look into using the free Smoothwall solution, see: http://www.smoothwall.org .  This requires you to run this on a separate machine as your firewall, but it does have some good free add ins that do spam filtering and virus scanning.  Smoothwall express is free, and has a lot of enterprise level functions.

not really, i sthere something you can just install on the exchange server.  The school i'm looking this for has Lightspeed so all their clients are taken care of but doesn't support 64 bit.  It does some SPAM filtering so i just want to find something that i can just put on their 2003 Server/Exchange 2007 64 bit server only, any options for that without having to do all the clients?

Hi,

You can use Symantec Mail Security for Exchange (it is installed only on Exchange) or GFI Mail Security (also installs only on Exchange). For Mail Security I know that is support 64-bit, for GFI please check on www.gfi.com. Symantec has special pricing for EDU.

Best regards,
Vladimir
