Actually, ClamAV recognized and decoded the URL spoofing just fine.
So they should be able to whitelist it without any special trouble.

If Bank of America was my bank, I'd contact them and ask them to send
their own emails from their own domain rather than sending emails
which rather precisely resemble email spoofing attempts.

If they declined, I'd find myself another bank who cared enough about email
and online security that they weren't outsourcing it to proofpoint.com <http://proofpoint.com/>.
