Gmail alerts users of phishing
I was checking my Gmail account tonight and noticed one of those eBay phishing e-mails. When I opened it to take a closer look at it, I noticed that Gmail places a big red warning above the body of the mail that says: "Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information."

There is also a link to a page that explains phishing and what to look out for.

I'm glad to see them taking steps to stop users from falling victim to such scams.
