Phishing version and mailto: tag

I am running MailScanner version 4.35.11 and version
(2004/11/29) on Red Hat Linux 9, Perl 5.8.0

I am still getting phishing fraud notices when the mailto: doesn't match
the URL text, for example:

Nov 29 14:24:48 lxclk0100 MailScanner[29724]: Found phishing fraud from
xxxxx.yyyyy at claiming to be mailto:xxxxx.yyyyy at in

I seem to recall that was patched to allow this to pass.

Do I need to run 4.36.1-1 for mailto: to check correctly with the latest Or should 4.35.11 be okay? I'm just a bit versioning confused
right now. :)
