I'm about to migrate from an Exchange 2003 Server to 2013. What version of Forefront Spam is supported in the 2013 environment?

Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't support the migration from Exchange 2003 to 2013. You need to upgrade to 2007 or 2010 first and then to migrate to 2013.

Forefront is no longer supported for Exchange 2013.
Microsoft is phasing out the Forefront option, and it ends with Exchange 2010.
Exchange 2013 comes by default with basic anti malware protection. But by experience this isn't far enough to counter Forefront.
On the other hand they are working on OEP (Exchange Online Protection), but I have no idea when this goes live.
