  1. Heh, weeks late returning due to holiday travel. Anyway: Yes, those are applicable. Dead-on in fact. Guess there's no need to be incredulous at a spammer being incredulous; it's just part of their game. I shouldn't be surprised. Thanks for the response.
  2. I admit to wry amazement. I received the following response to one of the spams I received: Well... I know nothing about The Point Casino and it's associated hotel (the business in the spam I reported), it's not in my state, and I have no intention of going there. And I know nothing of chihost.com either; perhaps this is indeed the first spamming in 15 years. But really, even if all that is true, how is it supposed to matter? I got unsolicited mail. I reported it. I'm not starting this thread to seek advice or anything. Really, I'm just posting it for posterity, and because I'm so amused by the chutzpah of that response. But in all the years of using Spamcop, this is the first time I've gotten a response like this. Perhaps Chihost.com (the email address of the sender of the above reply, and presumably the host of that casino/hotel's website) isn't used to receiving complaints, but no matter how you cut it, that's not really how to handle a spam complaint. Anyone else ever receive a reply like that? I mean literally for years I've always just gotten boilerplate "Thank you for your submission" responses. First time someone's even obliquely tried to defend what was sent.
  3. Hello. On nearly all of my submissions from my workplace account, I get warning messages similar to this: "Hostname verified: smtp.exchange.iu.edu Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts" I'll attach some tracking URLs below as full examples. Directly above the error, it identifies a server (in-cci-exch07.ads.iu.edu (2001:18e8:3:cc1::10a) in one specific case, a different server in another) that legitimately belongs to our organization. However, it and several other I'm aware of do not show up in my list of "Hosts/Domains" in my Mailhosts tab. And I've tried repeating the Add new hosts process; it doesn't add them. Worse yet, mail servers in the headers that come before those "Possible forgery" entries get ignored entirely (makes sense given that the parser suspects it's forged, but the point is that those servers don't get identified as problems by the parser. And I believe they're likely the genuinely original source, not the university mail hosts that are being ID'ed as possibly forged). The DNS record for smtp.exchange.iu.edu returns a set of IP addresses that, as best I can tell by doing reverse lookups where I'm at, are indeed legitimate mail hosts for this organization. I do not know if that verification is where the parser starts to misindentify the following server as possibly forged, but it seems like that's the point. What can be done to alleviate this misidentification? The smtp.exchange.iu.edu address is indeed associated with my organization's mailhosts.Yet I don't know how to get the parser or my mailhosts tab to accept that.
