Iconix eMail ID – verify email senders
February 19th, 2006

Iconix eMail ID is a client application that verifies the sender of an incoming email, and guarantees that the mail is actually coming from the company that it claims. The service only works with companies that have registered with Iconix, which currently includes more than 300 companies such as eBay, PayPal, Citibank,, Expedia, and many others.

Whenever an email arrives from one of the known senders, it is authenticated, and an icon displayed next to the message that indicates the validity of the mail. It only works with the major web based email services (Gmail, Yahoo, MSN, Hotmail) and in addition requires that you use Internet Explorer to read your mail. Once Iconix is installed on your computer, it will automatically verify email messages whenever you use any of the supported services, there is no interface or additional configuration required.

If you use free web mail and Internet Explorer, and are concerned about phishing scams involving major companies, give this software a try. Even though it is still limited in usability, the validation integrates flawlessly with the supported services.
