Were the addresses along the lines of "postmaster," "info," or "webmaster,"
They must either harvest them or guess them. For non-obvious e-mail
addresses that are never published, they cannot practically do either of
these, and so the addresses will not be spammed.
I have several accounts where the address has never been posted or
even used in any public way... They *all* get spam (and none of them
are generic addresses e.g. "info".) At least one of them is a
combination of letters and numbers that I would have expected to
resist most dictionary spam attacks. It did not.
