Exchange server 2007 antivirus?

Does Microsoft have an antivirus solution for realtime live scanning of email for virus?
I know they make a antispam product called forefront protection 2010 for exchange but I dont see any realtime antivirus program that they make.  I also heard GFI is pretty good when it comes to antivirus protection for exchange.  Anyone else know if MS makes one or not?  Or what product they recommend?

I would highly recommend taking a look at Postini.  My experience with them has been excellent, and, generally, it costs less than, both financially and from an internal cycles resource perspective, than in house scanning.  You additionally will have an excellent spam filter, and spooled e-mail in the event that your server goes down.

Depends on the number of users, obviously, as to what you'd want to do.

email scanning is not necessary, just attachements as hey are save to pc file dir. I am not aware that MS has AV..however..Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans/searches incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to be sure that you have the most recent virus updates.

Well we have less than 30 people in our company.  And plus we have a microsoft partner network subscription which allows us access to most of the microsoft server apps/licenses.  Forefront happened to be one of them.

Fpe2010 IS antivirus for exchange - both stores and transports. Forefront endpoint security is what you would consider the traditional av product
