Setting up Amavis with an MTA is no more complicated that setting up
clamav-milter. However, as you know, Amavis allows adding additional
virus scanner or filters like SpamAssassin to the mix very easily.

None of my customers was ever satisfied with a virus scanner alone, once
they began to take email protection seriously. That is why I personally
recommend Amavis in good conscience. Also, I am a member of the Amavis
developer team. ;-)
