I doubt that this app can ever fully work in Wine. A mail server isn't the 
problem, an anti-spam filter shouldn't make a problem too, but a firewall and 
NAT need the windows packet filter. There's not much sense in allowing 
Windows apps to configure the Linux packet filter. There are many Linux apps 
that can do that much better, and it's a very low-level thing. The anti-virus 
functionality depends on how it works. If it's a check that just opens a file 
and checks it, then there's no reason why it shouldn't work, but if it has an 
on-demand checker, than it needs very deep kernel integration too.

In general, general problems with applications should be discussed at the 
wine-users list. A mail subject is a good idea too ;)
