Just been talking to apple about a very authentic looking email I received this morning about 2 factor authentication for iCloud. I dont get much junk email in my inbox but this one looked very real.
The Apple support guy had not heard of this one

Well, he should have, because it's probably this (authentic Apple) one!

That's how the more crafty ones work by trying to make the messages look more genuine. The support guy kept me on hold while he checked it out. Acording to the Apple support guy Apple would not send out a email such as the one I received.

Do you know how we can tell the junk from the genuine in this instance?

According to the Apple support guy the email address was not genuine. It included 'insideapple ' in the address. A google search brings up the insideapple email address on the official apple forums from a few years back where some are convinced its a fake and others claim its not. Who to believe ?
Not saying the Apple support guy is correct or not but he did seem to check it out with a more senior colleague.
