First time poster but felt I must chime in on this one.
We had never even considered SOPHOS until after using MailScanner (which
is a great program), they should be giving you a cut of the sales
because we probably would have stayed with Symantec if not for

They may consider you to be competition, though.  When we were getting
together our anti-virus solution this time last year, they said "buy
SAVI from us, and we'll give our mail gateway for it for free".  But,
instead, we went with mailscanner.  It wasn't a loss for them in our
case, because they would have been giving it to us for free ... but
how many sales for their mail gateway have they lost because you have
a free thing in a similar market niche?  (and theirs might not do spam

That might be why they're not very helpful to you.
