Sure it is a little bit outdated, but since I have a couple of servers running with the same configuration, I try to minimize the number of updates. 

Anyone with a recent version willing to do a simple test? 

This link will warn:

that's quite an old version of MailScanner, try upgrading and see if the issue still persists.

The phishing filter seems to warn for a link with the name " )", when pointing to " ". 

I understand that it is not easy to create a bullet-proof phishing detection, but maybe ignoring the "()[]{}" etc from the check could remove a few more FP's? 

I am running MailScanner (Debian) version 4.74.16-1~bpo50+1
