Sophos Press Release

If you have PureMessage for Windows/Exchange or any of our MailMonitor products, then you will shortly receive a letter explaining the change.

Staying up to date

You can always download the most up-to-date version of all our software from the main Sophos website.

In addition, EM Library, part of the Enterprise Manager suite of management tools, provides an automated way of updating Sophos Anti-Virus on a wide range of platforms. Customers using EM Library obtain monthly updates to Sophos Anti-Virus in advance of receiving a CD, and their networks are also kept automatically up to date with the latest virus identity (IDE) files.

MailMonitor for Exchange customers: Although PureMessage for Windows/Exchange is our latest product for customers using Windows SMTP servers and Exchange, MailMonitor for Exchange is still fully supported by Sophos, and it can still be downloaded by existing customers if required.

Small business and PureMesssage for Unix customers: If you have any of these products, then you are not affected by these changes.
