we are trying out MailScanner. The maildelivery together with exim is
funktional, but MailScanner doesn't reject our virus-test-mails. There is
an Error-Message, which ocours ervery time a new mail is incoming:

Error initialising detection engine - missing main virus data

We are working with Sophos, the vdl-dat-file lays in /usr/local/sav/,
sophoswrapper is in /usr/local/Sophos/bin. Sophos itself scans proper.

Please send us some hints to resolve this problem.
