Re: How Can You Tell Without Opening it?

Is the email from someone/someorg you know? Does the addressee correspond with the email address that you gave that person/org? For example if I get an email from this site it should be sent to if it is from the bank then it should be sent to, if from amazon then it should be addressed to etc, etc.emails get filtered based on who they are from and addressed too. The remainder are random spam or scam.
