Email is not the only virus infection vector...
I'm considering f-prot for the desktop
(http://www.f-prot.com/f-prot/). Their site licensing is very low.
What anti-virus are you using with mailscanner? I've noticed while
shopping that it is easy to end up double licensed -- once for the
desktop, once for the email server. Don't fall into this trap.
