People who are very careful might hover their mouse over the link to see what the address really is. This method may often help solve this particular phishing method. However, I was thinking, what if we automated this process somewhat? For example, when the user clicks on a link, Thunderbird would compare the URL that the user sees to what URL they are actually being redirected to. If both are a valid URL (or close to valid), but take you to different pages/sites, then the user would receive a warning message notifying that this could be a phishing scam.
