email addresses

When the PBS message comes in there's a cc and if you hover on it, the real person comes up in blue with symbols beneath. I found by clicking on the envelope symbol on the left, you could reply directly to the person who posted with an email, avoiding the PBS list. But you need to be careful, saves hunting for the address.

Thank you,

Always look at the real email address, the stuff with the @ sign in. You 
can see that it is of the PBS list.

Whenever you get an email look at the real address, this will prevent 
you falling for scams like this one:

"from:///Your/ Bank <>

Please let us know your password"

Similarly when sending an email, forget about the helpful software, look 
at the addresses entered.

The same points apply to clicking on links, usually your browser or 
email program will show you the actual URL (somewhere), the text that 
goes with it can be made up by anyone.

There are loads of scam emails which invite you to click on seemingly 
harmless links, but they can't forge the actual URLs associated with them.

Looks like:
