Just received a mail entitled "Sky research prize draw - share your opinion for the chance to win £500" from "Sky" <email@example.com>
I was Just wondering if this was an official Sky mail or just SPAM?
The survey link takes you to a page on survey.euro.confirmit.com

I cant say for certain but based on that email address I would say it is dubious at best.

Thanks @caesarome, It does look fishy.
Although with Sky using multiple domains for their communications it's hard to keep track. All the Sky newsletters come from firstname.lastname@example.org and all the links in those mails are to newsletter.contact.sky.
The other strange thing is the e-mail alias the message was sent to is only used for Sky, I literally have nothing else in that e-mail inbox other than Sky account and forum related mails, and I have never received any spam of any kind to the address, so it would be a big coincidence that the first and only spam message I get is for the one thing I use the address for.
Looking a bit deeper it's something to do with www.redblue.co.uk market research. Would be good to get someone from Sky to confirm if it's legit though.
