I fired up my email client this morning, and started sending my spam into spamcop int he usual way when suddenly I started receiving bounce messages from spamcop, telling me that my spam reports were bouncing.
Basic message I get back:
Status: 5.0.0 (permanent failure)
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 5.x.0 - Message bounced by administrator (delivery
Reporting-MTA: dns; per-qv1-irony2.iinet.net.au
iinet, btw, is my ISP - it is not my mailserver, it is the second step in my mailing process and afaik shouldn't be an issue... it is an intermediary only.
I can't give a report number to you becuase it never successfully got to you (so it seems) and I'd like to know why...
I have no idea if this is an actual mailhost problem, but I am using that system, so I thought it might be a reasonable guess. I've been using it for several months now with no problem.
I also used nslookup to check that: my current computer, my actual domain, and my mail serve all were not lblacklisted (none fo them were blacklisted).
I tried emailing the guys at deputies at admin.spamcop.net (yes I did substitute correctly) but it also bounced.
What's going on?
