I've just received two emails marked with "===SPAM===" prepended to the subject line, both from "email@example.com"
Initially I thought "pfft, this is spam, they're just marking it as not being spam so that eejits are duped into opening them"
...but then I switched to my other mailbox (which is 100% unconnected to the first) and I spotted another email from them with the same format.
So I opened the message and found this: (IP addresses and email address obscured by myself)

Accept only emails from people you know/ emails you personally requested. Everything else is junk. (depends on your workplace[H]).
