About the most classic spam there is. From marketing@ and to a generic address I didn't know we still had an alias for. This mail also violates two provisions of the CAN-SPAM act. Since CodeGuard proudly displays the Better Business Bureau (BBB) logo, I filed a complaint with them over this email too.
