I'm running the f-prot-autoupdate script,
if I run the update_virus_scanners script I receive no emails, but I wish to
use the f-prot-autoupdate script directly to run separately the updates for
both f-prot and Antivir ..

Is your cron job calling update_virus_scanners or calling f-prot-autoupdate

My sophos-autoupdate script just updates hourly, the same as all the others.
