    rejected after DATA: This message contains a virus or other harmful content (Phishing.Heuristics.Email.SpoofedDomain

    This is caused by clamAV. It read the message and found something that makes it believe the message is a phishing message.

    Are you absolutely sure the message in question is not a phishing message?

    I really don't know how to go about fixing this. I don't know how clamAV goes about determining this. You would need to discuss this with the clamAV developers.

    Hi,

    Yes I am sure it a really email as the IP address point to Ebay/Paypal

    For now I have editted /etc/clamd.conf and change the below setting
    # Scan URLs found in mails for phishing attempts using heuristics.
    # Default: yes
    PhishingScanURLs no

    I have also sent an email to clamav.net got the email from there site
