I would be grateful for the _exact_ name of the Sophos anti-virus
software product that is being run with MailScanner on Linux (RedHat
7.2) boxes? I need this detail to pass to the person here who negotiates
the purchase of software licences for this site.

We are seeking an 18,000 user licence for this particular Sophos AV
software and would welcome any information on what other UK academic
sites are paying for the product. I am happy to receive this info
off-line and in confidence if that is necessary.
