In response to a Spamcop report I received:

I'm fairly sure the original spam was sent to a non-mailbox, like I'm going to unsubscribe.

I would suggest they know exactly what they are doing and the "unsubscribe" ploy is just another step in their scrіpt, certainly with no benefit to yourself but with some cheap address harvesting/verification potential for them when it comes to kidding along "normal" recipients. Looks like an affiliate/sharecropping program with obscured tracking built into the HTML of the spam - no way do they intend to comply with accepted marketing standards, no way that they even could, not with that sort of dynamic in play. Pretty sophisticated for spammers - no doubt reflecting the pre-eminence of the United States in the higher education participation tables (Universitas 21 Rankings) :P

Got another one this morning,

Farelf you are right, quite sophisticated. I ran their html through a validator and found only 1 error, they left an alt="" off of an img tag.

If it weren't for all the tracking in the links, and the fact the spam was sent to a non-mailbox...
