This is an extract from a VNU mailing list message

"For example, the URL at appears to lead to a bank's site
but in fact will take users to VNU, the publisher of IT Week. In this case the link is
harmless, but fraudsters can create convincing replicas of the sites users expect to see,
fostering the illusion that it is safe to reveal sensitive data.

As a result, firms quarantining emails that include hyperlinks built with the @ symbol
could stop them reaching employees' inboxes, and so could prevent users visiting the fake
sites. This could also protect firms against malicious content on the fake sites that
might compromise their own corporate systems."

My question is... Can Mailscanner/SA do what this guy suggests?
