Set the scanner to 'sophos' if you have just installed Sophos - this

If you find that the startup time for sweep is bogging your mail server
down you can install the savi perl module (as described on the
MailScanner website), this is a perl API that allows one to use the
Sophos C libraries without having to run sweep.  Under this circumstance
you should change virus scanners to sophossavi.

The Sophos C libraries come with the command line scanner and there is n
additional license, although you do have to install the perl module
(which is not distributed by Sophos themselves).

Unless you have performance issues its easier to stick with regular
