How Can You Tell Without Opening it?

How can you tell that it's a phishing email without first opening it?

Surely you open the email, you read it, you determine that it's a phishing attempt, and you delete it (without clicking on any link). Are they saying that I should know that it's a phishing email just from the subject line?
