What I'm finding is that some of the A/V products (Norman for example)
require a GUI if you want to use the exclusion list.  It appears that
Norman also needs the GUI to enter the License key (They mention a
command line way to install the key, but have not offered it up yet).
BTW: Does anyone have the command line option for installing the Norman
license key?  I have a valid/legal key.



MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
