That is not a complete URL. You need to do something like

  dig +short txt emails.msupdate.greylist.bastionmail.com

to get the actual last part. At this moment, the result of the above dig
is "emails.2010-015.0" which yields the URL
http://www.mailscanner.tv/emails.2010-015 for the current base. If the
last bit is non-zero, there are one or more updates at
http://www.mailscanner.tv/emails.2010-015.1 etc.

But you don't need to know any of that. Just use the ClamNailer script
from http://www.scamnailer.info/downloads.html to download the file(s)
and make the Clam sigs.
