Mail Spam from F1Technical.net or real deal?

Post

I recently got some mails (landed in my spam box) that looked like this:
newsletter-help@f1technical.net wrote: Hi! This is the ezmlm program. I'm managing the
newsletter@f1technical.net mailing list.

I'm working for my owner, who can be reached
at newsletter-owner@f1technical.net.


Messages to you from the newsletter mailing list seem to
have been bouncing. I've attached a copy of the first bounce
message I received.

If this message bounces too, I will send you a probe. If the probe bounces,
I will remove your address from the newsletter mailing list,
without further notice.


I've kept a list of which messages from the newsletter mailing list have
bounced from your address.

Copies of these messages may be in the archive.

To retrieve a set of messages 123-145 (a maximum of 100 per request),
send an empty message to:
<newsletter-get.123_145@f1technical.net>

To receive a subject and author list for the last 100 or so messages,
send an empty message to:
<newsletter-index@f1technical.net>

Here are the message numbers:

22

--- Enclosed is a copy of the bounce message I received.

Return-Path: <>
Received: (qmail 24440 invoked for bounce); 21 Apr 2014 02:59:49 -0000
Date: 21 Apr 2014 02:59:49 -0000
From: MAILER-DAEMON@mx-03.priorweb.be
To: newsletter-return-22-@f1technical.net
Subject: failure notice

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at mx-03.priorweb.be.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<my@mail.example>:
Sorry, I couldn't find any host by that name. (#4.1.2)
I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.
Since I got this message then it clearly didn't bounce back :roll:

So is this a real message by F1Technical or was something hacked?
The mentioned F1T mail addresses don't seem legit to me...

The real deal.
ezmlm is our little newsletter helper ;)

It means that a previous mail was bounced.
Mail addresses are automatically removed from the mailing lists after 5 bounces.

Oh ok, thx for the info.

The mentioned mail addresses are still a bit weird looking these days, like "newsletter-get.123_145@f1technical.net", but ok...

Wonder why it landed in Spam, "@f1technical.net" is usually whitelisted on my side. :wtf:
