Which practice does nothing at all to combat phishing. Banks and other
financial institutions should send mail only from their own
domain(s). Any bank which does not have a sufficiently large (or
cluefull) IT setup to enable them to send email from their own domains
is probably not worth doing business with. Financial institutions should
be in the forefront of online security.
