I don't know quite how high a performance you need. If it's just email
spam/viruses you are concerned with, you can run MailScanner for free,
see http://www.mailscanner.info. It's been around for 10 years now and
used by a lot of big organisations, many of which are listed on the
web site. Written by a colleague here at University of Southampton,
hence the plug. If you install and run it yourself, there's a good
community mail list for support and tips.

        ... or just run amavisd.  MailScanner used to do Bad Things with the
        Postfix queue, but since then I think they have fixed that, but I will
        admit to not having any experience with it.

I have 6 MailScanner servers in production running with Postfix, not had any 'real' issues in the last few years.

        As to amavisd:


        Have been using it on 1 million mails / day with satisfaction
