Agreed, but what i'm suggesting is forcibly converting the html message
to text by removing all links/frames/tags/objects and replace the links
with the plaintext (href) values if the option (Convert Phishing HTML To
Text) is set in MailScanner.conf as done in the "Convert HTML To Text"
It is just an idea.. i am quite happy with the current detection
techniques and the (yet to be implemented at my site) safe.sites update
feature + clamav/bitdefender.
