I've not recently seen an ISP account phish here.  The last one I remember
was circa 2003.  It was a dictionary attack, arriving at my [email protected] account
(long since rendered useless by spam volume and terminated).

However, I don't save phish/spam anymore.  I used to save everything --
providing many of the examples for -- nowadays,
just daily scan for false positives, report monetary phish to the few
ISPs that actually promptly close down bad actors, and delete the rest.

Good luck, Gadi.
