Despite the fact that Gmail, Yahoo Mail and other important and well-known webmails have got excellent anti-spam filters, every now and then it may happen that some fake e-mail manages to prick the tight spam-net and reach your e-mail inbox.  It happens to my Gmail as well and it is only normal, also because there isn’t a lot to do. Usually, such fake e-mails are quite recognizable because they have the same subjects and talk about the same stuff. But, what happen when you get a phishing e-mail  which is quite alike to the ones you get from CitiBank, E-Bay, Mastercard, Amazon etc? Let’s learn how to recognize fake e-mails from  legitimate ones, thanks to a free software.

Truemark is a small, free software created by Iconix able to spot and identify more than 1500  different company legitimate email addresses thanks to industry standard technologies which verifies the authenticity of the message.
