IIRC the technique described by the GP is being used by Dolby3D and has been developed a while ago in some Daimler research lab. Apparently it is very competitive to the RealD stuff. The filters for the glasses may be a bit more expensive to produce as they'd have to be very accurate.
MailRedirect may do that for Thunderbird: http://mailredirect.mozdev.org/ and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/mail-redirect/ though comments sound like it doesn't work with the recent Thunderbird build.

Citibank's security page While other sites are moving to more security and more ways for the user to protect himself (e.g., Bank of America's SiteKey program), Citibank is tearing away at protections and trying to train users not to care about security.
