virus scanning options?

we have a mjial server running on solaris 9.
we have about 10K attachment a day that we need to scan for virus type things.

in the past we have been using Mcafee.
problem is that since the new 5.10 version we find it is running too slow.

the question is what AV products are can run on solaris and scan for a win32 virus??

cost is not an issue, we currently pay mcafee a ton of cash so any solution will be ok for price.
