Hi everybody,

there are certain sites that offer whois querys e.g. but for certain websites also *.com Domains the whois query does not fetch any results, you cant even lookup the ip of the Domain even if you have success to lookup the whois, are there any measures that where taken into place by the Admin from the domain, u can trace the domain, but after a few hops, there is timeout, has the admin taken measures into account e.g. configure a router on the AS that blocks tracerts for example.

i wanted this question to be answered, because i am interested on that topic and spamcop was the the best result for the search i submitted.

> 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

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:

> Quick Reporting 3rd party reports
Posted by Hello71 - 07-9-14 08:03 - 4 comments
using quick reporting, spamcop seems not to send email to third parties, even though that option is selected in my preferences.

here, sc /dev/nulled mail to the open proxy IP, but apparently did not send mail to AOL. here, I would expect that AOL should receive email so that it could block the offending account or even better the offending IP at its end.
