Solaris 9, sparc, ClamAV

On our relay machine we use MailScanner 4.20-3 on Solaris 9, running on a
single processor Sun Enterprise 250 with a 400 MHz CPU and 512 MB of RAM.
We normally accept 17,000 to 20,000 emails per day with very low load.  I
used GNU tools to compile ClamAV from the source with no problems.

So far, ClamAV has caught all but one virus we have encountered, and our
Norton AntiVirus on our Lotus Notes server caught that.

Hope this helps.
