Verizon Retiring Inactive Email Addresses
Oracle Marketing Cloud's Kevin Senne reports that Verizon is telling subscribers that verizon.net email addresses unaccessed for 180 days will be deleted. This is yet another reminder that you (senders) can't sit on email addresses for years and still expect them to be valid. I have no clue if Verizon ever repurposes dead email addresses into spamtraps, but it's not something I would want to risk.
