Does Ooma have a list of e-mail addresses it sends e-mails from? I got an e-mail from that says it is from Ooma [ooma.com@mail5.us2.mcsv.net]
Is that from Ooma or is it a spoof e-mail?

The easiest check is to do a "whois" inquiry on mcsv.com. It's registered to:

MailChimp.com
512 Means Street
Suite 404
Atlanta, Georgia 30318
United States

Ooma is known to be HQ'd in California.

Connect the dots.

If you find out what a "mail chimp" is (some monkey typing at random but managing to turn out a true copy of The Canterbury Tales?), do let us know. :cool:

I've already deleted my recent ooma email but I would guess that it is real. Few companies do a blanket campaign of emails on their own because they want to avoid falling onto someone's spam list with their own domain. Many companies, including FireFox, use MailChimp or similar outfits who maintain a contact list and can easily handle email campaigns.

I'm betting "mcsv" probably stands for something like "MailChimp Service" (or "Server").

I'm thinking it's probably more along the lines of a monkey tossing mail into mail slots. ;)

Interesting. I don't think I have ever received any e-mail that purported to come from Ooma, whether legitimate or spoofed. Does Ooma send e-mails?

Yes, but only if you sign up for the newsletter/updates here: https://www.ooma.com/company/contact/
