Actually Julian borrowed my server to get NOD32 working with MailScanner
when they switched NOD to version 2, and it has never had a problem
since it was setup.  We used to use Sophos but got frustrated with their
rising prices and they kept changing the program which made it
problematic with Mailscanner every now and again. 

I do believe that version 2.15.1 is NOD32 for Linux Mail Server and you
really want to be using NOD32 for Linux File Server 2.06.1 instead
because all you need is the command line scanner, not the daemon.

The Eset NOD people are not knowledgeable about Linux and kept trying to
make me buy the mail server version when all you need is one client of
the file version.

Hope that helps!
