    Default WTF is aplitrak?

    A lot of contracting adverts nowadays have as contact email an address like this:
    name.surname.refno.website@company.aplitrak.com

    I.E.:
    John Smith, Adecco, Ref:62794, Cwjobs => J.Smith.62794.cwj@adecoo.aplitrak.com (this is totally made up).

    When I phone the agents directly (all of them in my experience) they tell me that the vacancy doesn't exist, they never received my email and they haven't a clue what aplitrak is, so I've stopped sending emails to aplitrak. Now I google the agent's name and email them directly.

    Has anybody got a clue? Am I just paranoid or is this 3rd party harvesting?

    What about agents telling me they haven't got my emails and know nothing about the vacancy? Agents' laziness or what else? Why would they want to use a 3rd party spamming application when they usually do it themselves?
