Referral traffic

We have recently switched ESP and are seeing traffic coming from the new ESP.


For some reason, referral traffic from the old ESP hasn't depleted, even though we haven't sent an email through them for over two weeks. Is there a reason for this?


Could users who came from the original ESP, then returned organically, still be categorised as traffic from the ESP?

The emails are sent with a link to your site embedded in the body of the email. That link contains the utm parameters and those parameters are sent whenever the link is clicked so you could see those old ESP sources for a long time.
