From what I've seen and heard, Sophos has a pretty good Linux Antivirus app. I don't use it but they seem to be one of the leaders. I use F-Prot, primarily because their home version is free. I use it in conjunction with MailScanner, which is a Linux spam blocker that utilizes numerous RBL's and any system's antivirus app. My F-Prot updates itself and caught MyDoom just hours after it was out.

We use Vexira Mailarmor from on our Slackware 9.1 mailserver that runs Postfix 2.0.16. It updates every hour and so far it has a perfect record of detecting and eliminating infected emails.
