Google is not sunsetting Gmail
Spam Resource

If you didn't already know, that screenshot that's been all over social media, suggesting that Google is telling users that Gmail is to be sunsetted in August 2024, is a hoax. Don't believe the hype. You can read more on this from the BBC here.  An interesting side note: Apparently Elon Musk used this as an opportunity to suggest that a Musk-provided alternative, called X Mail, is coming. There isn't much more to say about that until/unless something actually happens. Stay tuned ..read more

Spam Fried Rice: Doesn't this sound delicious?

Yes, I do have various Google alerts set up watching for food-related spam articles. Or SPAM, in this case! Without those alerts, I wouldn't have stumbled across this deliciously described spam fried rice recipe courtesy of the Recipe Critic. A simple combination of pan-fried spam, fluffy rice, eggs, and veggies, it seems very much like your typical fried rice recipe, but the addition of the diced, salty SPAM luncheon meat kicks things up a notch and this one is going on my "gotta try this" list immediately.

DELIVTERMS: NDR

by
2d ago
It's time to decode another deliverability acronym. Today, we're going to tackle NDR, which stands for "Non-Delivery Report." NDR is another way to say "bounce message." I consider them essentially to be synonyms. In my opinion, the acronym NDR is a bit of a Microsoft-ism, and the more appropriate generic term is probably "bounce message." What's a bounce message? Whenever you try to email somebody, but you get a notification email back that tells you that your attempt to mail that someone was unsuccessful. That response, notifying you of the delivery failure is an NDR or bounce message. Whe ..read more

Add this one to the dead domains list ... eventually. Secure email (mailbox) provider Skiff has announced that due to being acquired by a company called Notion, the Skiff secure email service will be shutdown.

Brian Krebs posted his usual "Patch Tuesday" update for Fat Tuesday (yesterday, February 13th) and listed in there was a doozy, an email-client specific bug that I almost missed: "CVE-2024-21413, a critical remote code execution bug in Microsoft Office that could be exploited just by viewing a specially-crafted message in the Outlook Preview pane." Brian points out today: "Microsoft has updated its security advisory for [this] critical Outlook bug they patched on Tuesday: They're now saying it's under active attack." Not good. Be safe, and make sure you're up to date with latest versions and ..read more

Mickey Chandler and I go way back. He's been working in the realms of email deliverability, policy, abuse prevention, and more for the entire time I've known him. Way back in the day, we both spent a brief stint working for the Mail Abuse Prevention System, one of the first big blocklist spam filterers out there. Later, he worked for and then with me at ExactTarget, later to become Salesforce Marketing Cloud, working very hard to keep clients on the right side of legal and best practice requirements. His most recent experience even overlaps with the world of mobile messaging abuse prevention ..read more

CheckMyLink (at https://www.checkmylink.gr/) is a cool tool I stumbled across the other day that lets you check domain names and URLs that might be malicious. I wasn’t quite sure of the scope or exactly what they’re checking, so I reached out to my friend, Sarah Papadopoulou, who happens to be the person who runs this useful checker, which has been created along with Scamadviser.com. Here’s what she had to say about CheckMyLink: "Along with members of the anti-scam community we built and support an anti-scam online checking system for domain  names / urls, to protect consumers!
