Phishing Warnings in HTML Mail

I create an html mailing and send a test message to myself. I then click on a link in the email and my Trend Micro Internet Security program pops up a warning that the link goes to a phishing site, which, I know for a fact, isn't a phishing site. The warning specifies our domain name with :c-mail appended. Does anyone know what's going on? Or how to correct?

There's a great FAQ article that explains this.

But to put it short, this will happen as long as you use the url for the link as the link text.

Instead, you could use the title of the page, a good description of it, or a call to action.
