Phishing Detection

I just upgraded from 4.33.5 to 4.36.1, in the hopes of picking up the
phishing detection. I'm trying to determine if it is working or not. I
have not been able to find any references in any of my mailservers logs
to "Phish" or "phish", other then the Found the Phish-BankFraud.eml
trojan, which was being detected before I upgraded.

I'm wondering what specifically should be logged to my maillog, when a
Phishing attack is spotted, where it gets the verbage for this, and if
Phishing detection depends on any other features in MailScanner being
enabled, like file checks.
