I'm confused about how the AT&T/Comcast merger last year affects Mailhosts. Last year, when Comcast took over the AT&T mail accounts, it decided to forward any mail sent to an AT&T account for a specified period of time. (I think for a year, but possibly longer.) I still receive spam messages that were sent to my AT&T account, because Comcast automatically forwards them to my new Comcast account. However, I can no longer send mail from my AT&T account. The Comcast domain is comcast.net, and the AT&T one was attbi.com.
I tried to report spam sent to my old attbi.com account and forwarded to my comcast.net account. The top of the report said:
Received: from 184.108.40.206 by 220.127.116.11; Sat, 10 Apr 2004 22:54:53 -0400 <br> </Span> <Span CLASS=EUDORAHEADER>
Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts
Will not trust anything beyond this header
But the bottom of the report seemed OK--it identified someone from admcablemas.com.mx as the administrator of the network where the e-mail originated.
Should I be concerned about the "possible forgery" and "trivial forgery" notes at the top of the report? Do they mean that I can't report spam sent to my old AT&T account? I configured both comcast.net and attbi.com as mailhost hosts. However, for some reason, after I configured attbi.com, comcast.net no longer showed up when I view my mailhost page.
