    I'm seeing an increase in phishing atempts. I'm running MS-4.46.2 on a 
freebsd6 box and here's my phishing-relevant mailscanner.conf settings:

Find Phishing Fraud = yes
Also Find Numeric Phishing = yes
Highlight Phishing Fraud = yes
Phishing Safe Sites File = %etc-dir%/
Phishing Modify Subject = yes
Phishing Subject Text = {Fraud?}

In the safe sites file i haven't modified anything, is there more i can do? 
Particularly i'm seeing items from ebay, a bank which i don't do business 
with, and emails marked as postmaster undeliverable.
