In a bid to make Gmail more secure and protected from phishing scams, the Gmail team has added another useful feature that verifies if the email has come a legal site or not.  Users can turn the feature on by turning on the Authentication icon for Verified senders from settings in the Labs section. With this on, users will see a key next to the emails, which means that the email received is trustworthy. Currently is only limited to PayPal and eBay. This is definitely going to be more common as Gmail sees how effective it is with the current system, eventually having more verified accounts so that users may readily trust the emails coming from each.
