Personally,  I use Postfix when setting up this type of thing for clients. 
Pair it with Spamassassin and you have a nice anti-spam solution.  There's 
lots of good docs on the postfix website, and it installs easily on Debian 
(and RH too, I believe).

For anti-virus, I've been using Dr.Web - but 'Clam anti-virus' seemed to be 
picking up some steam last time I looked at it.  Might be a contender now...
