Vexira with MS?

Hi all,

I've been following the Virus Scanner Review, since I'd already done tests
last year with Red Hat Linux, Sendmail, MailScanner and F-Prot, and Open
Webmail for web access, and our campus finally decided to provide mail
service for our students.  But when checking again costs for an antivirus
it's obvious that the companies are seeing that using Linux for mail servers
is really catching on, and now instead of a free or low-cost solution, I'm
caught with high costs for an  antivirus (we plan on providing service to
some 4,000 students, and so far the costs per mailbox are prohibitive).

Checking around, I saw Vexira
which offers a Per Domain License of $199 for up to 6,000 mailboxes for a
Mail Server, and also offers a File Server/Samba product for $349.95

Has anyone had any experience with this antivirus?  Seems to be good, but
don't know anyone who can give me any insight on whether it's really that
good. Any chance that it may later be included with those that work with

Any info/comment/suggestion will be appreciated.
