On Mailscanner front.
I am not an expert unix user but updating the Sophos engine on
our linux box every month or so hasn't caused me too much
problem yet. Using Julians install program for the engine and the
daily update works fine
And on the PC front.
We have a three year site agreement with Sophos having switched
from F-secure 18 months ago when updates of ides to the local
pcs would not work. The Sophos one does (generally)  but with a
few issues on performance of MS2000 workstations.
