    Seems like a legit company, the *ssole is more likely using their services.

    Got the same email, getting 2 or 3 differents each week. I don't even read them anymore. I delete them right away. One day, I'm going to have problem with my PayPal account.

    Peer1 is a pretty spam friendly host in my experience - it seems to take them a long, long time to LART spammers operating from their network.
