There is no such thing as Anti phishing protection (which is what I think you meant to write). YOU are your own anti phishing protection by taking care of where you browse.
There is a free app known as WOT services in the App Store which will tell you about dubious sites by popping up a message warning you ... but that is about all I can add. It is not Safari's fault if you wander into the great unknown.

not within Mail - but Safari http://www.apple.com/osx/what-is/security.html
Antiphishing protects you
from fraudulent websites.
Phishing is a form of attack in which online thieves try to acquire sensitive information such as user names, passwords, and credit card details by creating fake websites that look like sites from legitimate companies — like your bank or a social networking site. The antiphishing technology in Safari can protect you from such scams by detecting these fraudulent websites. And if you try to visit a suspicious site, Safari disables the page and displays an alert warning you about its suspect nature.

Hi, it's not Gatekeeper, nor restricted to Lion/Mountain Lion, but part of Safari since version 3.2 from November 2008. An option at Safari-Preferences-Security-Fraudulent Sites (on 5.1.7) toggles it on/off

It was toggled on when my machine arrived and I'd forgotton about it. Indeed, I have never seen a reference to a fraudulent site since I had it. I must be an exceptionally cautious user.
Incidentally, there is always a qualification about Google nowadays. Guess one probably has to buy such a service there.

I could only guess that they use a different blacklist or subsequent criteria... I sometimes see Safari/google warning for sites that have been malware free for months, even according to the info page offered when they're blocked.

Reasonable thought, ubnit5. My reference to the Google qualification was because whenever I see the Safari security pane, the reference to fraudulent sites always bears a caution that the Google safe browsing service is unavailable.
