Email Security Appliance
I would hope that most, if not all, SMB and large organizations would utilitze some form of an email secuirty appliance or software to help limit the number of phishing email entering the organization. Lets face it, how much training do end users actually receive on a yearly basis...let alone on a monthly basis.

At the end of the day, the human factor is the catch all and recognizing that you should 'not' click on that link is the ultimate security measure to prevent a breach.

Re: Email rule
Agreed, the worst thing I see is when a user isn't sure who a phish is supposed to go to so they forward it around the company.

Easy: IF YOU DON'T NEED IT, DON'T READ IT, DELETE IT.    This would save about half the world.
