That error usually occurs when sophos-autoupdate fails to get a zipfile of IDE's from the web. If you're getting this every time the autoupdate is called then check...
- Your Sophos version is up to date (they only supply IDE's for the last 3 monthly releases) - I'd recommend grabbing the latest off the web (you get three months life rather than two months from the CD releases)
- You MailScanner machine can access the sophos web site (lynx http://www.sophos.co.uk )
I've occasionally had this happen intermittently due to things like proxy server being down, sophos's site being down or slow to respond etc.
