I find myself in the same boat. Browsing the Sophos web site I find a product called "SAV Dynamic Interface". The documentation suggests it provides a daemon which supports "the Sophie protocol". I'm hoping that means the same interface mimedefang uses to talk to sophie.

I'll hopefully get some time tomorrow to check it out.
