Symantec Messaging Gateway can be placed virtualy anyplace between your firewall and mail server. So if the McAfee product accepts the message from the internet then after scanning hands it off to the Symantec Messaging Gateway then the Symantec Messaging Gateway could hand off to your mail server.

Typically the Symantec Messaging Gateway effectiveness is reduced when it is not the system receiveing the inital SMTP connection/message from the sender as all the mail will be coming from a single host so reputation information will be far less effective.
