Thanks I fixed the typo in conf file. This one just turns on and off the
extra level of detail on the phishing report. There is no current way to
suppress the report if you have phishing turned on in Mailscanner.

As far as getting that report through I normally have to add the sending
host to my spam.whitelist.rules and make sure that it defined in the

[Is Definitely Not Spam = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules]

You can bless by IP or by sender, so I just usually do the report sender

From:   root at irondoor.domain.com        yes
