You can run an Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam gateway with a lower MX value than your real mail server.
The gateway filters, cleans, and deals with bounces. "Good" mail is passed onto your mail server.
You can have multiple gateways at the same MX if you _really_ need to.

qmail-scanner with clam-av and spamassassin is a nice combo that has also been well documented.

Yes I know that, but I do need to have the scanner in one machine and the mail

is not enough for me. (which by the way I am also using)

I have seen the bitdefender, has anyone used that one? or also I have seen the
panda software. Still I am not sure that panda works with qmail.


Qmail-Scanner works well and gives you the ability to incorporate SPAM
