It was not just your email address, but the entire mail.com domain.

mail.com, while not necessarily spam friendly, is exceeding easy to abuse. Their signup system for new email addresses makes it trivial for spam-bots to generate hundreds of bogus accounts, Even though they will be detected and shutdown relatively quickly, by then, the damage is done. The spam haa been sent, spammer's job is done. Lather, rinse, repeat.

We have received enough spam from bots using mail.com addresses, that we simply banned the entire domain.

The link above displays the last 1000 spammer forum accounts generated from mail.com addresses. And that is only from the internet forums that bother to report them.
