Is there any way to tell the phishing code to ignore matches like this I 
see in the log now and then?

MailScanner[4228]: Found phishing fraud from 
claiming to be in jBT0Dh5c006095

I'd like it if MailScanner had an option so it would decide something 
was phishing ONLY if the domain name didn't match, but ignore the 
hostname. This assumes that most people can control hosts within their 
own domain, but I think it would be a nice option.
