Hm... why.py doesn't seem to be up to date.  But --debug still works.

Correct, thanks.  If I create local.wdb having these three lines:


then the message is clean.  daily.cld already contains similar lines,
but it seems the bank change their html more quickly than database
maintainers can cope with :-/

Note that I already know the sender is whitelisted by DNSWL by the
time I scan.  However, keeping two engines, one of which is loaded
without phishing signatures would seem to be overkilling, no?

Any other idea?
