I'm not the "expert" on this, but I am sure that if you indeed bought the wrong version of Avast, Alwil will give you a good deal to correct it ;)

So have a little patience and wait for one of the Alwil people to give a reaction on your question.

Hmm, you didn't try the software on your system before buying it...? :-\

Avast SBS Edition should work on NT4-based SBS BackOffice BUT Exchange scanning will not be available. The minimum version of Exchange supported is Exchange 2000 SP1.

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Unfortunately, no I didnt try it first. I have Avast! at home and its great. Our server antivirus expired and my boss was looking for a fast economical solution as norton was becoming expensive. I assumed that SBS would fit our server well. My mistake. Our office only had dial-up internet, so i was waiting till I got home to actually download it.
