IMHO mail gateway isn't the point of checking whether machines inside are virus free or not. There should be other practises used on workstations ensuring that the inside environment is virus free at any given moment.

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 defenses.
