    In my household, it's simply "the look" - that says it all. It's kind of an airbourne version of "the death of a thousand cuts"... time for that long-overdue bunch of flowers.

    <hr>Outlook 2000 and 2002 don't display a status bar, so this must be targeted at other mail clients.<hr>
    There is a status bar viewable if the preview pane is used -- though that's not an option I would advise for your Inbox or any other folder where these sort of messages could end up.

    On another note, we've received a few of these scams in the ofice the last few days, and I've seen that the level of sophistication is going up again. When I did a 'View Source' of the message, the code had the web target masked using non-ascii text code so unless you were willing to do some translation you wouldn't know what the true link was. Additionally, they've added stuff to the message header in an attempt to 'legitimize' the message -- FCC: mailbox://antifraud.ref.num76739133887@citibank.com/Sent -- trying to make it look like the message had been screened by the Federal Communications Commission.
