I don't run Clamav mainly because at one point it detected malware where 
I didn't see any (but it was a long time ago and I don't remember what 
it was about).  But even if I did it wouldn't give me a pure phishing 
detection that could be used to make some phishing attempts get deleted.

I'm investigating the Netcraft solution.  Can anyone give their opinion 
on their RBL?
