Antivirus solutions

I'm looking at possibly moving our company email system off Microsoft
Exchange 5.5 and onto FreeBSD with sendmail/qpopper/openldap.  All has gone
well so far, but I'm wondering about how to implement virus protection at
the server end.  This is particularly important as the company deals with
many companies in the Far East, and according to the logs provided by McAfee
(which is currently monitoring the Exchange box) we're getting several
infected viruses every week.

Are there any antivirus packages for BSD?  Ideally we would move the
protection away from the server and put it onto the desktop, hence
protecting against web-borne viruses, but at present I'd like to cover all
