PositivePrint: Emailing a Spamtrap

PositivePrint, an Internet-based print house, is sending bulk email to a spamtrap via ESP Constant Contact. The spamtrap is a long-closed email address that has not been live for years, and that rejected email for over twelve consecutive months in the interim before being re-enabled. It should not receive any bulk email any longer.
