    I got one too, but I wasn't sure it was connected to this list.
    We had heard from Mailchannels a year or so ago, so they knew my
    address from that. Since my job includes email security it's not
    out of line for mail filtering vendors to contact me. But they
    don't usually ask for free help in for-profit product development.

    Hi Dave, Mouss, and others,

    I can confirm that this is an instance of a "marketer gone crazy,"
    rather than a spam campaign:

    - Desmond found Dave's name when he was looking for people in the
    EDUCAUSE group who know about email.

    - Dave's email address was taken from Mary Baldwin College's staff
    directory (
    namesearch.asp). It was not taken from the SA mailing list.

    - The message to Dave was a one-to-one correspondence - it was not
    part of a bulk mail-out.
