How to identify legitimate email messages in your inbox?

Some months back I have got a warning email from PayPal, asking me to update my PayPal account. If not the account might be deleted. It looked exactly like a PayPal e-mail. So I clicked the link, but soon I learned that this is not a legitimate site. This may not be the case always. We should be extremely careful about this type of email; otherwise it might cause to a substantial financial loss. Then how can we identify such fake email?

Trend Micro eMail ID is a browser plug-in for Firefox and Internet Explorer that helps you identify legitimate email messages in your inbox. It uses a two-step check to verify the authenticity of messages from hundreds of major companies, and then displays the result in the “from” area so that you’ll know what’s real. This helps you avoid opening and acting on phishing messages attempting to spoof real companies.

Trend Micro eMail ID is available as a beta download for evaluation and it supports Yahoo mail, Live/Hotmail, Gmail, AOL mail, Earthlink and Outlook Express 6. Trend Micro eMail ID requires Internet Explorer 6.0 or 7.0, Firefox and preferably a High speed internet access. More information and download from Trendmicro.
