  1. They're back at it this morning. Getting a steady influx of the IP missing emails. Sent a tech support request to my provider to see if they can make anything out of it. The peace and quiet was nice while it lasted. Oh yeah, the other brain booster spams had quieted down too but they're cranking back up also.
  2. Here's a status update. I got a note from the tech support folks where I host my email and it said... I'm not exactly sure what that means but the good news is I haven't had any orphaned (No source IP) emails in about 24 hours now. As a matter of fact the quantity and frequency of spam has suddenly decreased to almost nothing. So I guess we'll see how long things remain quiet until the spammers gear up again.
  3. I contacted the folks that are hosting my email. I could tell that the tech support guys was "outsourced" and he didn't seem to be interested in the issue but he at least let me email him a file with all the header info, I haven't seen any let up in the frequency of these "orphaned" emails nor have they contacted me back. In a about a 13 hour period overnight I received 28 spam emails and 11 of those I couldn't report because of no source IP.. All emails are essentially the same subject about some kind of brain boosting pill and all emails are formatted in plain text. Without giving up any of my personal info here's a snippet of what I'm receiving; Received: from localhost (localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]) by mail.grupoitm.lan (Postfix) with ESMTP id 5C766FAB454; Mon, 14 Aug 2017 03:48:58 -0600 (CST) Received: from mail.grupoitm.net ([127.0.0.1]) by localhost (mail.grupoitm.lan [127.0.0.1]) (amavisd-new, port 10024) with ESMTP id 3xff6aC6fjRp; Mon, 14 Aug 2017 03:48:57 -0600 (CST) Received: from [127.0.0.1] (unknown [84.238.197.88]) by mail.grupoitm.lan (Postfix) with ESMTPSA id A7E26FAB458; Mon, 14 Aug 2017 03:44:12 -0600 (CST) Received: from mail.grupoitm.net ([190.148.69.250]) by mx.perfora.net ############### My host's address and "To" info Subject: Boost your intelligence thanks to these tablets Date: Mon, 14 Aug 2017 05:44:14 -0400 Message-ID: <646B5A86.4477323@grupoitm.net> MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
  4. Just to confirm, you're saying that the spam is originating from the same place that is hosting my email account???
  5. I've been getting a bunch of spam that cannot be processed. The messages I get are; Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source No source IP address found Nothing to do. I don't want to publicly post the email headers. I just need some advice on what to look for or perhaps what I can do about this. Thanks.
  6. Well, the vacation from LimeStone Networks was nice but it looks like they're cranking back up again. The past two days I've been getting their spam. I'm not sure if this is possible but I'd like to create my own personal RBL and just delete the messages automatically in Outlook. If I don't see them then I won't get irritated (I hope). https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6682094190
  7. Hey Morg2, I think the email address, <abuse@limestonenetworks.com> isn't valid so your reports are going nowhere. You can try their online submission form; https://www.limestonenetworks.com/about/contact-us.html It's a pain doing that but it may wake up someone. They are also on social media and perhaps a little negative attention might spur some results, but who knows? You can also do what I did... when on their site you'll get a chat invitation. Just let the rep know how unhappy you are with the spam. I wish you luck.
  8. Well the spam originating from LimeStone has stopped. I'm not sure if it was my conversation with the Customer Service guy at Limestone or perhaps a little help from SpamCop??? None the less it's been almost a week and so far the spam from those guys have halted. Thanks to whoever pulled the strings..
  9. Thanks! Sorry about the report links. I rarely post here so still getting used to the place. I'll try to figure it out. Does this link get you there? --> https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6379881767z92c30dae8da3a1bb6e3a8eea43e780bdz I didn't look at the statistics and honestly didn't know that was there, but that is helpful. There's a dozen or more IP addresses these guys are using. I've tried to setup an inbox rule based on IP address to catch and delete the messages without my intervention since this looks to be an ongoing thing. Fingers crossed but they haven't sent me anything today. Not sure if my conversation with the marketing guy had any effect but the day's not over either.
  10. After 5 weeks of unrelenting spam originating from LimeStoneNetworks I decided to send (email) them a 12 hour summary to wake them up. Two hours later I get a bounce message. So perhaps after sending reports for all these weeks nobody over there is getting the message? Can someone at SpamCop verify the email address? ---------------------------------------- A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: <abuse@limestonenetworks.com> Reason: delivery retry timeout exceeded ------------------------------------------- So this morning I decided to visit their web site and I found an online submission form. While submitting the reports I get a chat invitation from their marketing folks. I basically said that considering all the spam I've been receiving that has originated from them... "There's no way on earth I want Lime Stone anywhere near me. Please tell that to your tech team". I thought that would blow him off but he offered to get involved so I gave him the reports also. Imagine that... someone actually interested in resolving the issue. Here's a 12 hour summary; 6662053215 ( 216.245.216.171 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662048891 ( 216.245.216.168 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662036740 ( 216.245.216.170 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662032870 ( 216.245.216.166 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662024352 ( 216.245.216.164 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662020805 ( 216.245.216.169 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662014056 ( 216.245.216.167 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com 6662002344 ( 216.245.216.163 ) To: abuse@limestonenetworks.com
  11. Thank you for taking the time to explain how this works. That was very helpful. I will continue on reporting each incident with the "optimism" that it will eventually stop. I'm curious about one other thing, at what point does an ISP get black listed? Is there some sort of official body that determines when enough is enough or how does that work?
  12. I have an ongoing issue with the same cast of characters sending me around half a dozen spam emails a day. I have been diligently reporting each email. This has been going on for several weeks. I was wondering if there's anything else I need to do or do I just keep at it? What should the expectation be for the amount of time that it takes to resolve an issue? Here's the latest activity from the past couple of days. Note that one of the admins address has changed since the first couple of records here; https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290194378z5e40226a65041e56f78c7357b14f4f11z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290339959zd8aa70b2650ac9fc0163025ab2574d34z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290622111zc2ad1b42f406a2286d27c180157d04b0z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290623386z0bd5b5debde5908ed385cd4e7a2eadd1z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290696937z8ed2b7971ac43d0798b7d3844a6da48dz https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290738146zbf4fd020aee84f7b51bdb4339f0228d4z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6290774744z3258f9c3626598a37306fcb40382f7b2z Thanks!
  13. I'm in the same boat as you. I started receiving occasional emails back in late December and it has really picked up in intensity during the month of March. The subject is always something about Package Received, Order Delay, Unpaid Invoice, and the most creative one was something about a traffic camera picking me up in violation. Each email up until today has had an attached zip file. Now they're sending RAR files. I've been reporting these things as fast as they come in but it doesn't seem to help and I share your observation that it seems that the more I report the more I receive. I've also been forwarding this stuff to phishing-report[at]us-cert.gov. I really hope this gets resolved soon. It's frustrating.
  14. To the folks at SpamCop, I wanted to thank you for all you do. I recently subscribed to the reporting service and stayed diligent with reporting each and every piece of unsolicited spam that I received. I'm happy to say that it has been over 8 days since I've received any spam, whereas I had been receiving 3 or 4 messages a day. I just sent you guys a payment to show my gratitude. Keep up the good work!!!
