You should also install viruses software on the workstations because it is
possible for users to get content a central scanner cannot scan (it is
encrypted, comes through a channel it isn't looking at like or a different
one entirely like a floppy disk, etc.).

Trend Micro makes viruswall, which runs on Linux (we use it) one nice thing
it does (that amavis/etc can't do) is scan outgoing emails.
Linux: Red Hat Linux 6.1 or above OR Turbo Linux 6.1J.

It should work on SuSE.
