ESP mail seen in spamtraps February 2016

Do remember to read this ’til the bitter end… it’s a tad longer than usual.

Let’s start the post that includes spam from MAAWG 36 week (hi y’all! great catching up with you!) with the standard stuff. Somewhere during the latter part of the month, we collated all of Oracle Marketing Cloud into one; no more separate Responsys, Eloqua and RightNow.

Verizon: Spamming an Email Appended List
