    I had a hotmail Spamhaus spamtrap in my data that I hit. I'm curious if that spamtrap is now also in my openers and clickers file? Do any of y'all know if spamtraps load the image pixel and/or click through any links?

    It depends on the spamtrap some do some don't. Some click links to follow to see the source. How do you know the hotmail address is a trap?

    In my experience in the hygiene space, a good majority of moles/traps/dormant accounts will be active, thus in your opens/clicks files. The majority of our clients pay close attention to those file sets as they grow b/c they are the ones that need attention, often, from the cleaning side of things. With Hotmail, most of the time their 'traps' are dormant accounts converted over to their seeds. So it's more than likely it's active within your opens/clicks file or at least your active data if you're seeing any related listings from them.
