The scam detector wrongly identifies Bruce Schneir's CRYPTO-GRAM newsletter for October 15, 2013 as a scam. The "details" dialog says
This email contains a link which points to a numerical IP address (baseball2.2ndhalfplays.com) instead of a typical textual website address. This is often the case in scam emails.
That is not a numerical IP.
The link _is_ part of an example of a purported NSA malware site, but I don't think that's what KMail is trying to warn be about...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to CRYPTO-GRAM at http://www.schneier.com/crypto-gram.html.
2. Get it to send you the Oct 15, 2013 issue.
3. Open the issue.
The scam warning appears on the message.
No scam warning should appear, or no warning about the above link should appear.
please save mail as mbox and attach it to this bug report.

mail message that triggers the scam detector
I deleted the original message, but this extract triggers the scam detector in the same way.
I will investigate.
