I'm installing a new MailScanner server from scratch, so I have the
opportunity to use sophos 5 instead of sophos 4 if I want to. I've read
the wiki and I have the latest MailScanner so I can use MailScanner's
sophos installation script. On the Sophos download website I see that v5
download file is 50Mb, while v4 is only 12Mb. I suppose that is because
v5 has on-access scanning capability, that we will turn off anyway for
use with MailScanner.
If I use v5 will I have to download a 50Mb engine update every month?
Although I have sophos EM library running for my windows workstations,
I'd prefer the mail server to update itself rather than relying on a
windows machine. What is everyone else doing?
