"Email scam detection .... is too flawed and incomplete to be useful. Its recommended that you disable it using Tools -> Options -> Security -> Email Scams." Really? This is the first time I've ever seen such a claim that it should be disabled. wsmwk 11:58, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

It is not trainable, doesn't support white listing, and legitimate messages with links where the text doesn't match the server name are too common . This seems to most frequently occur with newsletters. This is an ancient topic. Tanstaafl 10:45, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

The current links are to parts of a Thunderbird 1.5beta tutorial from opensourcearticles.com. Any objection to my removing that and relying mainly on the FLOSS, "security in a box" and freeemailtutorials tutorials plus links to a few KB articles? Tanstaafl 10:32, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
