Hi, I recently upgraded some servers from f-prot 4.5.4 (with mail  
server licence) to clamav 0.90.1 and I am very satisfied. I am also  
using additional signatures from http://www.sanesecurity.com/clamav/  
for filtering also phishing and scam mails. I suggest you to try  
clamav before buying a licence for a commercial AV.
