Poor quality of phish and spam emails @ shaw

I am dismayed at the poor quality of spam and phishing emails I receive at Shaw.  The example below fails to pass even the most elementary acid test. No promises of riches, no assurances I'm esteemed - nothing. My mother rejected this email and she is 94.

 

Quick question - Does shaw's firewall provider block @shaw.ca emails that are generated outside of the @shaw.ca domain? Many companies do this to cut down (but never eliminate) phishing.
