    Im not sure if cPanel does email security or is in contact with that subject developers.

    What I would like to create, use or suggest,

    Recently alot of emails with seeming to be from bank like statements, credit card recent payments in large amounts or credit/debit card expire date coming up. Some of them even claim to be from bank and ask to uninstall/install, reinstall firewall to make sure before clicking link is "safe".

    They are quite hilarious but some people fell for them. I myself can make sure how link is spoofed that shows for example bankofamerica.com but is directing to some china website when clicked. I bet there would be some way to create protection that compares inside mail http:// and www. protocols with actual href destination. If mistmatch, email could be deleted if user wants so or link brought out as actual destination, link removed.. etc.
