I know but I prefer to have multiple checks done with different
software. On my MS gateways I also scan for phishing, scam and more.
That's why I would like to route all emails to my MS boxes...
Most PCs are running McAfee; my MS gateways also run ClamAV, which make
them more valuable than running McAfee on the Exchange box also.
