    Reverse NDR Spam

    Is there any disadvantage to being blacklisted by spamcop.net if you are using a barracuda firewall? These devices are typically configured to receive incoming mail, and not send outbound mail. Oh, I guess your real mail senders would not receive your bounces if they subscribed to the spamcop DNSBL. That could be a problem.

    How do I see the details on spam being reported?

    Does this work if the spammer drops the connection before the 500 level error code is sent? I have noticed that a lot of spammers drop the connection, instead of terminating politely, like with QUIT.

    I am not authorized to speak for Caltrans, but let me just say that there is a cost to taxpayers for storage, backups, training, etc. if this is delivered to a bulk/spam folder. There is nothing in the encoded section that is not visible in plain text. You would prefer that the commercial spam message be included in the bounce? That would provide virtually a direct path for spammers to deliver their message. If the message goes back to a non-forged sender, they should know what they sent. I am committed to reducing spam on the Internet. I will work with our vendors to find a solution that is in the best interest of our Department and the public. In the mean time, perhaps snaspam01.dot.ca.gov should be blacklisted. In that case, spamcop customers will not receive misdirected bounces from this host. Note however, this spam originated in Korea... Received: from -189652552 (unknown [219.250.206.116]) by snaspam01.dot.ca.gov (spam Firewall) with SMTP id 19043D002F23 for <x>; Sun, 27 Nov 2005 11:39:17 -0800 (PST) And is found in the CBL and senderbase: http://cbl.abuseat.org/lookup.cgi?ip=219.250.206.116 but not blocked by spamcop. http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblo...219.250.206.116 219.250.206.116 not listed in bl.spamcop.net ---- The opinions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily represent those of the California Department of Transportation EDIT: spam changed from all caps to lower case to comply with trademark restrictions.

    How do I see the details on spam being reported?

    I still have not seen the reports. All I have seen is a note saying, "Here is a copy of a reported blocking of spam traffic from a DOT IP Address (198.31.97.68) ( snaspam01.dot.ca.gov) server to 1425957615[at]reports.spamcop.net" with nothing else included. I don't know why ca.gov did not have them, and were trying to get them from spamcop. Good point. But this is something I CAN do something about.

    Never.

    How do I see the details on spam being reported?

    Only 6 entries and most were dot.ca.gov spam recipients. Anyway, looks like Jeff G. was able to get some more information, but it still doesn't tell me anything about the source of the reported e-mail. Only the time of the report. Seems to me spamcop should look up the abuse contacts for "dot.ca.gov", not for "ca.gov". By default, this is postmaster[at]dot.ca.gov I guess there is no way for me to get the original report information. ------ The opinions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily represent those of the California Department of Transportation

    Wazzoo, Thank you for responding. snaspam01.dot.ca.gov has IP address 198.31.97.68. You were able to find the abuse contact information using arin. Why can't spamcop do the same?
  8. I would like to research why one of Caltrans IP addresses is being reported as the source of spam. The only information I have is what was forwarded to me via a different Department, and the SpamCop reports. There are no details here for me to take action... The only information I have is: 1425957615[at]reports.spamcop.net [spamCop (198.31.97.68) id:1568561770]**Message you sent blocked by our bulk email filte..
