Which Virus Scanner

Sorry my mistake getting confused with f-prot which is free for personal
use (I run MailScanner at home).  Sophos is available for free eval of
30 days. In any case for commercial use I would always recommend buying
the AV product.

Are you absolutely certain about this? When we attempted to license
Sophos for use with MailScanner, our only option was to license it for
every machine that might receive scanned email on our campus or buy a
site license for all Sophos products for our campus. I'd be interested
to see Sophos documentation that says the Linux version is free to use,
especially if it applies to non-commercial or educational sites. I'd
like nothing more than to give McAfee the boot.
