  1. Yeh, I took a look at the .eml with a text reader. If I copy and paste from the opened headers, then line-wrap or word-wrap seems to get used and breaks up the long lines of garbage the scum-spammer has inserted (....kcfrsxkiugdsetujhfedfjiu...), which upsets SpamCop no end 😕 Recent example that does now get processed after sending .eml.... https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6596879593zbf4fdf5a105382e3c3e542f528681ab6z Save-as .eml leaves everything intact. Obviously I'll use this method from now on. Much easier to simply send in .eml as attachment without even forwarding using the original spam.
  2. Success ... I think. I changed my method for the type of incoming spam that always failed to be processed (where other spam reports succeed) - commonly coming in from "headlines @ Trib•••" Just found that on webmail for Virgin, I can save email as a file (.eml). Send as attachment, and it appears to get processed successfully. At last. So, no copying & pasting (which appears to get lengthy headers scrambled using my email app) for at least these & probably any other styles of crud-mail.
  3. Yes petzl ... when I look at recent reports and view the complete header - I also see when there's a (very) long string of probably garbage text, then a semi colon ... my copied text forces a space / line break (I think). I'll try pasting it into a text file and edit away those spaces, then TRY to find the beginning of the mail body and leave a space just above that. Hope that's right? This one - https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595709111z16c9042e25c923770d15e71286a871d2z ......has line breaks all over the place lower down, and stops sending as "too large", "nothing to do" etc. If anyone 😉 would like to view the example in the above URL, edit a copy of the complete report, (with an obvious separating line / message, where it aught to be separated & sent - if necessary - into the 2-box reporting area?) and send it back to me as a message, I might get to learn what I need to do with all the other "too large" reports I've recently sent in. Thanks again 👌👍
  4. Good to see you over here ravenstar68 ! Thanks for your explanation, and pointing out to ignore "Will not trust this Received line". I'd not continued sending any with that message on the report. Lesson learned. 👍 I'll try your version of extracting from webmail - highlight /CTRL-A (select all) / CTRL+C (Copy to clipboard) Cheers
  5. Sent that one as-is (no email to say it's failed). Tried the last report I'd sent ... but now get "No data / Too much data. You are most likely submitting a very large email. Please trim... etc". This brings up a newbie point that I can't find an exact FAQ for - ... How and where do I edit this unparsed report? I can view entire message from the link beneath the truncated entry - but there's nowhere to crop / cut. Do I need to re-send the report from the original email but use the 2-part reporting web page to separate headers / body, rather than send-by-email reporting? This report gave the particular brick wall issue ... https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595087778z758d665bc9d4ae4d72f881d2e0382a82z
  6. Right ..... so ... even though this (and other) entry has "no source IP" etc, I can still send it in and it'll be processed effectively? OK ... I'll go back and send them before the 2 day deadline. Cheers.
  7. Nope ...got this after copy/paste complete header / leaving a blank line / then pasting the complete contents of the email, as-is. For Tracking URL https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595219959z800489aae9b3c8255211f4e5ac6b6d55z Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts Will not trust this Received line. 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.
  8. Not yet petzl, but I'll have a go at that and post back ASAP with how it goes. ..(Using the "Report spam" tab on SpamCop webpage, yes?). Thanks again for your input.
  9. Thanks for taking a look petzl, It's been a number of your posts I'd been reading to try to get to the bottom of this stream of spam from some irritating little twerp(s), thanks. I'm hoping to get to the bottom of why my forwarded emails are getting nowhere. Would love to get a positive result on these. I'd just Google'd one of the IP addresses that keep turning up in the spam, and found a recent discussion on my ISP Forum - Virgin Media, relating to the same spam here ... https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Receiving-old-Emails/td-p/4073300 Notably, the emails all have a date originating with "26 July". I'll look into this, but simply blocking the spam getting to me personally via a filter, just doesn't quite do it for me. I'd like to get the sender(s) blocked ASAP.
  10. If it helps ... I'll post a couple more that were labeled "Nothing to do" by SpamCop. They're all definitely spam. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595069327z8ae3e4bc616dfde2198736ec02ec3d14z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595018747z5de0fb76112d4d0c9c79610048071af5z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6594999144z96d48fb5c7537a72d947f5564d0a5801z
  11. Thanks LKing, It's not just me then .... the headers were similar / same on a couple of email programs I viewed them on - all with multiple confusing "received" in the text. Hard to find the end of the crud and the start of the useful information. I've been getting multiple spams (mainly from Trib° in the senders name) which change frequently, and get around my virgin mail filters. I'll find it difficult to find a "cleaner" header from recent emails as they look pretty much like the one I posted above.... but there'll be plenty to choose from daily. Thanks.
  12. Hello, I've recently joined and had some success in sending in some spam to SpamCop. However, a number of submissions are unable to proceed due to "This header is incomplete. Please supply the full headers of the spam you're trying to report. No source IP address found". I am aware that some spammers insert false sender / IP's above the genuine one. Unfortunately, however I try to remove sections of the headers, I get nowhere. I read on this forum about removing lines (all lines?) above ARC. The only reference in the extracted headers I can find is DMARC. Again, I failed when I removed text before this term. I have sent a recent spam email to SpamCop without removing anything from the headers - via forwarding the mail from my tablet AquaMail app along with complete copied headers as the body of the email. Could anyone kindly tell me exactly what I should / should not be forwarding along with the original email so I can get somewhere with this, please?. The failed attempts are driving me bonkers. Here is the link - https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595087778z758d665bc9d4ae4d72f881d2e0382a82z Thanks in advance.
