We use a commercial product, Barracuda Networks Spam/Virus Firewall that allows us
to accept SMTP from specified domains and forward to specified domains and ports.

Qmail is our MTA and yes qmail-scanner with clamav is very nice. So is rbldns and rblsmtpd
for stopping SPAM.

Combined with OBSD, now there is the cat's meow.
