        If it says November 20111, it's been sent a little early.

            It's IB's mailing list. They are using the same for their other IB-related forums. Links to click.shopping.ibemail they use to track you down.

              There's nothing wrong with that, it's standard practice in email systems in order to track clicks and conversions. It's the rule rather than the exception to have tracking links work through the actual sender's product's domain, e.g. in this case *.vbulletin.com".

                I did, but it got detected as Bulk/Junk Mail by Google for me.

                  For the hell of it, I created a test mailing in our email system (an enterprise ~£20K yearly service) and pasted the entire source. I think I found the issue.

                  Running the basic pre-send spam report, this stands out:

                  PTS Rule Description
                  2.0 URIBL_BLACK Contains an URL listed in the URIBL blacklist
                  NaN [URIs: ibemail.com]

                  A 2pt spam score on its own for that issue alone, which is NOT good.

                  Someone at IB should visit uribl.com and request a de-listing from their blacklist.

                            It is a legitimate email. We are working out the spam issues with our email provider. My goal is to A)get the word "shopping" removed. It may as well say "cheap viagara" if its going to say that. B) have the domain match vbulletin.com, which is another issue. The account is a company wide IB account and not specific to vB. At any rate, thanks for the feedback.

                              I hope that you will learn from your mailing experience enough, to the degree that you will apply your experience to the vbulletin mailing method/functionality.
