I don't about the other thing, but yoyo.com and the dogbertmailer are
totally legit (and cool!) things. Yoyodyne runs contests for several
different businesses and organizations (including Rolling Stone and other
big ones), they also happen to run the Dilbert (popular comic strip)
stuff. One of their "newsletters" for Dilbert is dogbertmailer @
 yoyo .
 com
and they are very good about sending it only to people that request it.

It may have been a "forged" subscription, but this address is legit and
not related to spamming.
