Very nice work by Ian Fette et al. The first thing they do is define "identifying phishing spam emails" as a different problem than just regular spam. Then they use a decision tree based classifier and a set of smart features to identify phising attacks.
The features include: when the domains in the links were registered, ip number links and comparison of the domains of the links in the email to the domain of the "click here" type of links.
