sending out old emails?

So my wife's account just received an email for the recruit a friend promotion. The email mentions that you get the x-53 rocket. The rocket has been replaced by the cat. I've checked the sender and the link in the email and it all is legit, not a phishing email. So why are we getting out dated emails?

Where exactly do the headers say the email is from?

Deleted a lot of the middle portion. They even used her first name which she doesn't use at all, accept on her account.

I received this email a little under an hour ago as well. Honestly, the only thing that stands out as unusual from the other newsletters is that prior sending email address was newsletter@email.blizzard.com, whereas this one has newsletter@email2.blizzard.com. I wouldn't bother unless confirmation is mentioned.

Non-newsletter related email address is the typical @blizzard.com

It's legit.

Must simply be a glitch
