We've been using ClamAV and McAfee side by side on our gateway for some 
time now, and ClamAV is a tenth of a percent less effective than McAfee. 
Both catch over 99% of what hits the server.  (I keep running stats on all 
that stuff.)

You can feel very confident that you are catching almost all the viruses 
running Clam AV.

That said, it never hurts to run two or more scanners, depending upon your 
cpu and memory capabilities.
