(RESOLVED) Check Point Software: Resurrecting a dead list

Over three years into my ownership of a certain domain name that used to belong to a biz but now belongs to myself as a private person ever since Dec 29, 2009, I have now started to receive mails targeted at customers of Check Point Software. The recipient was related to the IT side of the previous owner, so it does make a certain amount of sense and probably isn’t straight out spam, but resurrecting a list after over three years of inactivity? Give me a break. Disregarding opt-out? I’m afraid that does make it spam.


I sent their abuse@ a note on October 30 to say the domain has changed hands. It was received:

Oct 30 14:29:17 x postfix/smtp[2966]: 07F47796598: to=<abuse@checkpoint.com>, relay=sami.checkpoint.com[194.29.38.66]:25, delay=8.4, delays=0.1/0.01/7.6/0.62, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 q9UCQslx018140 Message accepted for delivery)

But not responded to, if you don’t count more spam as a response.
