2ndLook features our "Verified Sender" list, which includes companies who are often the targets of fake emails, forging and phishing spoofs.
We maintain this list to help you identify the Good Mail from known trusted senders.
You will soon automatically look to see the company logos to confirm the sender identity.
When you see the Green Checkmark, that says that we have Verified the Sender to be who they say they are.
Here is an actual message from Bank of America.
It looks like someone made a purchase with your credit card online.
"Was my account compromised?".
Looking to the right, you see that the message is verified, so your credit card credentials were not stolen or hacked.
You can relax now.
2ndLook has verified the identity of the bank. You know this message can be trusted.
Before 2ndLook, you might think:
"Was I hacked???"
"Is my money gone???"
"Should I be worried???"
But now you just look to the 2ndLook sidebar. The Bank of America logo is absent. But you have become accustomed to seeing it for real messages.
So you know it is a fake and can be Reported as Phishing and deleted.
"The Sender is not authorized to send mail from the domain"
This is all you need to know to "Report as Phishing"
