By Published on .

In a Thursday post titled “Zombie email: Part 1” on “Word to the Wise,” the blogger, Laura, introduces the idea of “zombie email” addresses and how they are challenging e-mail marketers. “Zombie email addresses: those email addresses that never really die, eat your brains and destroy your email delivery.

Part 2 will examine how the problem has worsened since 2000.
