How to check if your Gmail message is authenticated?

If you see a question mark next to the email sender's name, the email isn't authenticated. When an email isn't authenticated, that means Google email doesn't know if the message is coming from the person who appears to be sending it. If you see this, be careful about replying or downloading any attachments.Dial 866-324-3042 for Gmail customer service
