I can't tell you exactly how much money my college is saving using John's
software.  But look at it this way...I don't spend $10,000 on a incoming
virus checker from Commandcom or McAfee.  I don't spend days disinfecting
computers where people opened the Sircam Virus.  And I don't spend days
trying to track down who my "unknowing" users sent the virus too (although
without an outgoing scanner, this isn't 100%).  And I can tell you that in 1
week, we've stopped over 125 viruses (mostly sircam) from being delivered to
my users.  To me...that's worth a LOT of money!!
