I think the best way to check, which works in every instance I've seen, is to look at the url. I get paypal phishing emails frequently, the first check is to see if the actual url is something like "http://n00bserver.net/thisisanauthenticloginsite/login.php"

And, while this again only works if you use a secure website frequently (like myself and paypal), often these fake sites will use an old layout of a website. Whenever there are password and other data fields, you can try just entering anything and seeing if it goes. Try entering a message into SSN or Credit Card #.
