I was doing a cleanup of my DMZ processes when I noticed a gaping hole on my Edge Transport Server.  I focused so much on the AntiVirus for the actual email that I never installed AV for the server itself.  All of my google searches lead back to Edge Transport AV functionalities, and that isn't my question.  I'm looking for how people have their Edge Transport server (aside from the Exchange part) AV protected.

You should be able to use your normal server AV product, but exclude the Exchange folders.

Could you tell us just a bit more about your server? OS version, and 32 or 64 bit?
