- From my perspective the "old emails" are not old redundant emails at
all, quite the opposite.

Received 17 "old email that were flushed from the cache".

At least 14 (out of these 17) were actually missing DShield Submission
Confirmations and no redundant email that I would have received earlier.
(The number of submissions, which I had kept and which lacked
confirmations was 16).

Three additional emails, which I now also received were older (Dec 5, 9
and 12) and it may well be that they were missing DShield submission
confirmations as well. (In January I just deleted submissions that
lacked confirmations and that originated last year.)

It would appear that you actually found the black hole at DShield.
