I'll just throw this out, feel free to say no...  The pointy-haired boss
has wanted to have our own custom anti-phishing warning, instead of the
MailScanner default (he wanted a whole paragraph there with a URL to our
own site explaining phishing etc, way too long -- I told him no, it was
hardwired).  But the pointy-haired boss DID thing that the warning was cool,
instead of telling me to turn the feature off.

Others want the thing shorter, eg "Fraud attempt from as".

And I sure wish the msgid was in the phishing syslog, grumble, grumble.
Maybe in the next design of this feature?
