    Would a spam trap be an opener or a clicker in your list? Or would it be not be an "engaged" email address?

    Of course it could be. Lots of bots would scan links or you could have a human open email from a trap account.

    The reverse is possible too though.

    agree with what DKPMO said

    of course you need to filter out bots

    In our experience, the spamtraps from the major anti-spam sites (SpamHaus, Spamcop, etc..) are:

    - Frequent but random openers: They not always open the email.

    - Extremely seldom clickers: Usually when you hit 50+ of their traps and they are planning to add you to their blocklist, then an employee usually opens and clicks on your links (with the consequent opener and clicker record).
