  1. Hello, I am receiving bounced spam which had used my email address as the reply to address. As this bounced spam is unsolicited I report much of it to SpamCop. However many of the reports are not accepted with the following error: Is that because mx.kundenserver.de is not associated with my mailhost? My hosting company is 1and1, I think that mx.kundenserver.de is associated with 1and1. This is the header of the email that generated the error above: This is what SpamCop displays when it processes one of these bounced messages correctly Thanks, Clive
  2. Thanks for the advice Lou, Farelf and lartingyou, Fortunately the bounces seem to be slowing down again, only a half dozen or so in in the last day, so at the moment they are more of an irritation than anything. Yet for some irrational reason I still get so incensed by them, perhaps because I feel so powerless to put an end to it. I have been forwarding many of the emails to the respective domain shortening services, most have been very helpful, unfortunately the two services most frequently used by this spammer mow.so & link.vpn.by have completely ignored all attempts to communicate with them. Thanks again, Clive
  3. Unfortunately I spoke to soon after a day or so the bounced spam started up again. I am at my wits end, every day I receive dozens of bounced emails all spamvertising the site veronyka.co.ua via URL shortening services. This has been carrying on for over a month now and I seem powerless to stop it. I can only guess at just how many of these emails are going out in my name on a daily basis. Reporting the bounced spam to SpamCop has a negligable effect, because the source of the spam is not reported only the server that bounced the message, nor is the URL of the domain shortening service reported. I was hoping that at the very least SpamCop would pick that up. Actually, even if it was picked up by SpamCop, the shortening services would seem to be the weak link effectively insulating the spammer from any repercussions. I really don't know what to do anymore, I have even considered writing to the criminals behind veronyka.co.ua to ask them to please stop using my email address, but unsurprisingly their registration information is not public Any suggestions as how to put an end to this mess would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Clive
  4. Lou and Steve T thanks very much for the responses. For some fortuitous reason the bounces have almost completely dried up today. Only a few "Delayed Mail (still being retried)" coming through. I expect that I will continue to receive these for the next few days, but they will be reported to SpamCop. Thanks, Clive
  5. Hello, I have been experiencing a rather difficult problem over the last week or so and it is steadily getting worse. A spammer is sending out spam using my email address in the from field. As a result, all bounced emails come back to me. Many of the bounced emails return the original email as an attachment which advertises an adult site http://veronyka.co.ua (always via one of the many domain shortening services). As I seem powerless to put a stop to the flood of bounced emails I receive, at the very least I thought that I would report the attached emails to SpamCop Unfortunately these reports are rejected by SpamCop, presumably because my email address is in the from field, I get the following errror: SpamCop v © 2014 Cisco Systems, Inc.

Here is your TRACKING URL - it may be saved for future reference: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6027951760zfb7bdddfabbcac98282c6e14fe134696z Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source Mailhost: Please correct this situation - register every email address where you receive spam No source IP address found, cannot proceed. Add/edit your mailhost configuration Finding full email headers Submitting spam via email (may work better) Example: What spam headers should look like Nothing to do. How do I work around this? And if anyone has any ideas for shutting down the spammers or at the very least get them to remove my email address as the source, I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Clive
