In my setup I do (for a variety of reasons that aren't generally 
applicable) virus scanning using clamav and clamsmtp, but no spam
in Postfix.  It works very well.

On the Postfix list amavisd-new gets a lot of positive mentions.  I've 
experimented with it and it looked pretty good to me.  You can use it to

call clamav and spamassasin.

Is there anything else that mail scanner does for you?

It's your box so you can, of course, do whatever you want.  I just
it because that's the only program I see the true Postfix gurus strongly

warning people away from.  I understand it can cause lost mail and 
corrupted queue files.  

This is because it modifies the queue files directly.  Since the queue
structure is an internal Postfix interface this is inherently risky.  
Unless there were no other alternatives, I'd never use a program that
