Well, I use the Debian Woody package of mailscanner and mailscanner.conf
thus lives in /etc/mailscanner ;) I don't know where the Sophos.install
script is but it is not in /usr/local. To install Sophos I use their script which puts things in /usr/local. I adapted the
autoupdate script and that now runs fine with the defaults of the Sophos
install script.

Thanks for your quick replies.
