Mcafee. The school we're a part of has a license for the whole campus
for Mcafee products. The desktop, file servers, and command line
scanners are covered. Groupshield isn't. I wanted to get rid of it

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.
