I'm running Sophos in addition to Trend and F-Prot.  Using MailWatch I
checked which virii got caught by which scanner and before installing
3.78d Sophos was catching a few less MyDoom.A (5-20 of 300-500 total
MyDoom.A slipped past Sophos everyday).  Since installing 3.78d
(yesterday) Sophos is catching all that Trend and F-Prot are.  There
still seem to be some people having issues with 3.78d, but in my case it
seems like it was a problem with Sophos, not MailScanner.
