Checking Links with Outlook 2003


Outlook 2003 has a very useful feature for checking whether an e-mail is from the person you think it is.

Look at this fragment of an e-mail supposedly from HSBC.

Phishing E-Mail Fragment - Click for full e-mail

Note how I've moved the mouse over the URL in the e-mail and Outlook 2003 shows what the real URL is. What has got to do with HSBC?

Nothing! This e-mail is a phishing scam.

Who the hell is CACATUL anyway?
