Apparently from Tom Harper, but a bunch of odd urls to click (which I didn't) ...

I am also wondering if this is phishing or a real email from Avidyne.

The other thing that is suspicious is that the domain is "myavidyne.com" rather than a subdomain, such as "my.avidyne.com".

That said, I actually do have a saved log in to myavidyne.com, so that domain at least, is likely real. Not sure about the rest.

Sad, that we have to be so careful these days!

It's real.  We've reworked MyAvidyne and the new domain really is myavidyne.com.

The yucky-looking URL's are for click tracking. Common marketing tool, but Keap is a name I'd not heard before. (https://www.keap.com)

Thank you very much for the clarification. Very hard to tell these days what is real and what is phishing.

So, looks like it is more for new installs/warranty kind of stuff.

My warranty expired some ten years ago ...  ;-)
