I picked up a new feature within Google mail today when an email was sent to me but not with the persons usual email address. For example, if Bob usually sends you emails from bob@bob.com, but then all of a sudden Bob sends you an email from bob@otherdomain.com - something is likely out of place.

Google Mail now helpfully gives you an extra warning:

Phishing Protection

This is one of those small changes that I can see really helping folks think twice about sending an email.
