True... true... unfortunately, the FM is only available if you download the
tarball and untar it (or if you install the RPM). I was hoping to find my
answer *before* that point so I could decide whether I wanted to actually
download it and begin playing with it!
The HTML site FM is purely Sophos oriented...
BTW: Apparently you do need the Virus scanner, as it uses the included
engine to check out the MIME attachments. So technically, you need to buy
Sophos ($120 for a single user licence...) - or of course you could use
some other engine like McAfee's... or maybe even Clam, the opensource virus
Fortunately the mailing list seems to be split between Sophos users and
McAfee users. The folks there are very helpful.
