Spamtraps

Spamtraps are email addresses created to entrap spammers. These ‘traps’ tell the trap-owner that the sender is randomly creating addresses or using bought email lists to send, usually in bulk, without permission. Spamtraps are designed to received emails but are not purposefully handed out, advertised or even used by a human to send emails. These are useful for identifying blacklists.
