    Hi,

    I recently got an email from announce@parallels-universe.com - inside the email is an advertisement for Parallels Desktop 18. The links in the email body appear to be to the parallels.com domain.

    Anyway, if @parallels-universe.com really is part of Parallels then I'll add this domain to my white list to prevent these emails from going to my SPAM box.

    I've long since deleted mine, but if all the links aim at the standard parallels.com domain, then I'd say they're probably safe.

    I'm just glad I'm not the only email purist that white lists his inbox. Although, it will only hit my Spam box if it hasn't originated from a specific set of IP address ranges/ domain I have blocked, and passes specific SPF and SpamAssassin tests. Otherwise my qmail script sends it directly to /dev/nul, and the IP, sender, and subject gets posted to AbuseIPDB.
