Going through the spam traps today, I noticed one message which was sent to 5 addresses on our system. Those addresses broke down as:

  • 1 actual person’s email address.
  • 1 long-dead account used to collect spam.
  • 3 dedicated spamtrap addresses seeded solely by unsubscribing from spam sent to other accouts.

Is it any wonder that people don’t trust opt-out directions?
