Float Like A ButterFly

Don't Get Stung

Since emails can be easily spoofed, it’s a good habit to “float” your cursor over an address before replying. It's tempting, but don’t click on links or automatically reply to emails, even if it seems to be from someone you know. Instead, hover over the link with your mouse to see the underlying email or URL destination.

For iOS touchscreen devices, press and hold the email address or linkdon't tap itto reveal the actual email address or URL. Remember, never reply to an unverified email or click on a link unless it goes to an entity or site that you trust.
