More of logwatch question then a Mailscanner question but... The 
phishing report has a threshold variable so you can set it high or set 
it to 0 to supress. Sadly there was a bug in this so it was impossible 
to set to 0 in the conf file. This has been fixed and the default is now 
zero or off. You can grab just mailscanner service script here

As far as the RBL report that one needs a threshold and on/off switch 
but has not been coded. Feel free to hack the script the lines you are 
looking for are

if (keys %RBLType) {
   print "\nRBL Report: (Total Seen = $MailScan_RBL)\n";
   foreach $ThisOne (sort keys %RBLType) {
      print '    ' . $ThisOne . ': ' . $RBLType{$ThisOne} . " Time(s)\n";

either comment them out or stick "|| $RBL_switch == 1" and add my 
"$RBL_switch = 0;" at the top of the script and that should shut it off. 
You can direct more question like this to the logwatch list.
