Its spam. Don't bother opening it. Mark it with your ISP as spam if they offer that. If that doesn't cut it, make a rule in apple mail (in mail preferences) to the effect of "if FROM contains unot.in delete message". You won't see them any more. This assumes you will remember to alter things if you ever DO want anything from that domain in india.

I'm pretty sure I've never subscribed to any such service, though the topics are certainly inviting and I imagine some do fall into the trap. I just wanted to be sure that I'm not missing out on some good resources.
