It obviously depends on what your mail server(s) are doing and where
they are located etc.,

Our office mailserver only handles mail (outgoing) and serves files
etc., while the majority of other servers on our network would also
serve web content etc., Naturally, from our perspective, outbound spam
checks on all servers not only makes sense, but has saved us from
"issues" on more than one occassion.
