SBS 2003/Exchange and a Linux Spam Gateway

My company uses Microsoft Small Business Server which is running
Exchange 2003 for email services. We have been using a service called
Exchange Defender provided to us by a consultant that were getting rid
of. Exchange Defender is a service that filters spam and viruses for us.
There are just 5 of us using Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2010 as clients.
I have a little box that is a Via Epia 15000EG motherboard with 1G of
RAM and a 250GB drive. I put Linux Mint 13 Mate 32-bit on it and it
works great. I would like to use this little box as an email gateway to
filter spam and viruses for the Exchange 2003 server. It would be nice
if I could just pop that little box between the Internet and the
Exchange server as an appliance to do this. I did some Googling and
found SpamAssassin and ClamAV as free products to do this. I am just not
clear on how to install them properly on the Linux box and how to
configure it.

I would like to figure out how to do this myself, because I would learn
something valuable and get this service running for myself.

Thanks ahead of time.
