When you use Phishing Filter to check websites automatically or manually, the address of the website you are visiting will be sent to Microsoft, together with some standard information from your computer such as IP address, browser type, and Phishing Filter version number.
Now, why does MS want my IP to see if a site is a phishing site or not?
All HTTP based traffic includes the IP address. You can't browse to any website without disclosing your IP.
The requesting IP address is not used in the evaluation of the site.
