IMHO mail gateway isn't the point of checking whether machines inside are

It's impossible to guarantee that the LAN machines are virus-free at any
given time, particularly if they run Windows or are portable and move in
and out of the LAN.
The idea of virus-checking outgoing email isn't to tell whether LAN
machines are infected, but to prevent abuse of other networks and
possible loss of connectivity because a virus got through the first-line
