    I am a mail.com customer. Does anybody know if Outspark and Mail.com have a business relationship? If so, it is annoying that my email provider is spamming me.

    It especially annoying because they say "Go to your profile at Outspark - MMO, RPG, RTS, Play best free online games at Outspark to unsubscribe." and I have never set up a profile at outspark.com. What is the business relationship here? Thanks.

    I do not see an obvious relationship. They appear to be separate companies.

    If you check the full email headers from one of the emails you should be able to see if the email is coming from within mail.com or an 3rd party.
