  1. Thanks to all of you for your help in this obviously confusing matter. I appreciate *all* of the input that I received. I will follow Don's advice and report this through Gmail's reporting system. Now I know how to act should I receive any of this type of spam in the future. TC.
  2. Now I understand. Yes it does say that it's an internal email - it's from Gmail and my receiving email is also Gmail. Here's the tracking url: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6004840553z78618366fe94528c83a6cb16fc460ae7z
  3. Thank you everyone for your information and advice. I'm a complete newbie here as you have all of you have realized. I use a different email address to log into Spamcop than my "darkhours[at]" address. I use apendexout[at]gmail.com when I report. When I got the message "No source IP address found, cannot proceed" I saw the message about configuring my mailhost as a way to combat this new tactic with spammers, so I did that immediately for two of my email addresses - the one where I received this attack spam and my girlfriend's account that I manage which receives more spam than my main account does. After I reconfigured the mailhost I tried to resubmit this same email but it still came back just as before. So I've leaned to post my Tracking URL when I post here. Thank you for that. So what you are telling me is that there is really no way to report these people through Spamcop because they've covered their asses really good. Considering the type of personal attack email that it was the originators didn't want to get hit with any libel lawsuits.
  4. Hello - I've been using Spamcop since it's early days and it has served me well and I hope that my reporting has had some small effect on the massive amounts of spam around the world. But this is the first time that I've needed some advice from the experts here in the forum to see what I can do about this issue - if anything. Today I received a spam at one of my anonymous joke Facebook accounts. I'm not even sure how these people got my email and targeted me with their smear campaign against people that I know nothing about at all. I do *not* like people who go about attacking people behind the cloak of anonymity. If you have a beef with someone because you are mad at them have the stones to say who you are. So since this was unwanted spam I decided to report it. But the Spamcop came back saying that it could not find an IP address. I found this curious because I could see the IP in the headers - but I thought that it must be spoofed or something like that. Although I have been using Spamcop for over a decade I'm not that familiar with how it all works. Could someone explain it to me, and possibly advise me on how I should proceed with this problem - or should I just forget it? Thank you - TC
