For users of the "sophossavi" virus scanner setting, a new version 0.20
of the SAVI-Perl module has been released. You can get it from

I have just installed this module in the same way as I have installed
its predecessors, and it appears to work fine with MailScanner 4.35.11.
I haven't tried earlier versions, but the MailScanner SAVI code hasn't
changed for a very long time. Please report any problems you see.

Unpack the .tar.gz file
cd SAVI-Perl-0.20
Edit Makefile.PL
Change /opt/local/lib to /usr/local/Sophos/lib in both places
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

Then restart MailScanner.
