Exposures: Emailing an E-Pended Email Address?

Exposures, a photograph-based personalized gifts seller affiliated with catalog retailer Miles Kimball, is sending bulk email to the same spamtrap as Miles Kimball and another Miles Kimball affiliate. The ESP is E-Dialog.

The spamtrap email address that Exposures emailed was closed in 2007. The name in Exposures’ bulk email is female, but the email address originally belonged to a man, which normally indicates an e-pended list. Prior to approximately one week ago, this email address had not previously received email from Exposures via its own IPs or any ESP.
