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 The rocket has been replaced by the cat.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?
all of the links take me to the secure battle.net site.....
Edit: That extra i was my typo

Newsletter@email2.blizziard.comYes, but what do the headers say?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, whereas this one has email@example.com. I wouldn't bother unless confirmation is mentioned.
Non-newsletter related email address is the typical @blizzard.com
