Re: How Can You Tell Without Opening it?

Sometimes opening the mail (in a mail client that doesn't open or run anything that I don't personally tell it to) is the only way of determining that it is phishing (or any other form of spam). Once I have classified it as phishing or spam, I report it as such before deleting it.
