8×8, Inc.: Emailing 4+-Year-Old Email Addresses?

Integrated information technology company 8×8, Inc. is sending bulk email to email addresses that have been closed for many years. The presence of these email addresses on 8×8’s list could be due to emailing a fallow opt-in list that had not been contacted since before 2008 (a foolish error), or to a purchased list. The ESP is Marketo.
