They don't cut off virus definitions for you specifically, but if you don't renew then you
can't download the latest sophos engine, and they don't provide virus signatures for
engines more than 3 months old.

If you update the engine automatically every month using MajorSophos, and allow it
to e-mail the results to you, you will know if the engine download didn't work.
Presumably, you would then have two more months to work out your problem before
any problem showed up with MailScanner not being able to download new
