You need to work out what ScamNailer is objecting to, also whether the 
scamnailer version and the data you are working from is up to date.

If an address is listed incorrectly, I believe the scamnailer data 
originates from so you 
could look there to get false positives and no-longer-positives removed 
(Help Desk addresses can be used in spam so it might have been listed
