SpamCop is the premier service for reporting spam. SpamCop determines the origin of unwanted email and reports it to the relevant Internet service providers. By reporting spam, you have a positive impact on the problem. Reporting unsolicited email also helps feed spam filtering systems, including, but not limited to, SpamCop's own service.

> Curious about how this spam have been delivered to my address
Posted by Javier - 07-26-14 05:34 - 3 comments
(I'm a bit lost with the forum organization, so I'm not sure if this is the correct place for asking these questions. My apologies if I have done it wrong)

I'm trying to educate myself about the mechanics of the spam reporting process, and today I have been puzzled by this spam (I have changed the "Delivered-To" part, replacing my real address by "me"):

My real Spamcop address is of the type "me[at]" and I never use it to send email, because it only serves as recipient of addresses "me[at]" that are forwarded to "me[at]".

Looking at the spam headers, I see that it is addressed to "tangent[at]", and that the email system have delivered it to "spamcop-net-me[at]".

My question is: None of these addresses (tangent and spamcop-net-me) are mine, so, how is that the spam have end handed to "me[at]"?

If someone of you can enlighten me about this small "mystery" I would be grateful to him/her (and I will end the day a bit less ignorant).

Thanks and Regards,

This morning every mail comes in twice. It's probably my crazy ISP but thought I would ask.

> Adding an E-mail Address to SpamCop Reporting

I wish to add another e-mail address to my Spamcop reporting account - how is this achieved ? (I know it needs registering but can't readily see how). TIA.

> [Resolved] newbie: delivery status notification (failure) - find source of spoofed email?
Posted by spamnewbie - 07-13-14 14:43 - 8 comments

I apologize in advance if this is the wrong place to post this question... I am a complete neophyte when it comes to this stuff (just a typical computer end-user) and I am hoping someone here would be kind enough to either help me directly or point me to some resources that can help me. I have tried researching this topic on the web but it quickly gets too technical for me to understand.

I am getting occasional "delivery status notification (failure)" messages for emails that I have not sent (and are clearly spam). I am trying to discern two things:

1) Whether these messages are legitimate (i.e. did a mail server somewhere truly get a spam message with my return address and then bounce it back to me) or is this email itself a form of spam that has been sent to me in an effort to get me to click on one of the embedded links?

2) More importantly: has someone legitimately compromised my email (or computer or phone) and are they using it to send spam?

Plugging the complete bounced message into returns a long report, but I am unable to parse it due to not knowing enough about how the technical underpinnings of email works. Plugging in just the "body" of the text (i.e. what looks like a header that was bounced back) results in spamcop telling me that I have not included a properly formatted header.

Ideally I would just like to know that (hopefully) someone is spoofing my email address, and I am looking for a method that would allow me to either confirm or deny that fact.

I have not pasted in the original message here because I read in one of the FAQ's that it was suggested we not do that. I am willing to post it here (or portions of it) if that is requested. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

> No blank line delineating headers from body - abort
Posted by MyNameHere - 07-11-14 08:35 - 13 comments
I have gotten a couple of these in the past day or so. The parser chokes, saying "No blank line delineating headers from body - abort"

Here is a tracking URL:
