Procmail the all-in-one wonder dog of email management is brilliant. You can use procmail to filter content based upon ANYTHING. It simply is brilliant. It may take a while to get the hang of though. However, if you run a mail relay, then procmail wont be of any help to you, as it is a local mail delivery agent.
For Email AV - We use Trend Micro. Excellent product. It supports many different mail configurations. Either as a relay or in a sendmail sandwich (this lets sendmail do the grunt work and Trend just does the AV). Trend also have a content filtering addon packager - although I can't speak for its usefulness. Another useful feature of Trend's InterScan is that it acts as a mail relay, instead of a mail server plugin. This means that it will work with any mail server (qmail, postfix, exim, sendmail, etc...)
There are other "solutions" such as Sophos, Kapersky, etc....
If you do a search of [Fm] you will find many other content and "virus" "solutions".
However, we find that the Trend / procmail combination works brilliantly. Its fast, stable, robust and it works.
If you need any help, let me know as we've rolled this out in many sites.

Subject: [Lias] Mail filtering with sendmail
Has anyone found a good email filter for sendmail that can kill questionable material (pornographic email adverts) and also run virus checks on all incoming emails?
