  1. Pretty depressing in that there is so ,uch content already existing within this Topic/Discussion, yet ..... so much misinformation, doubt, puzzlement, and absolutrly wrong data still gets brought up .... Here is a "corrected" copy of your inital query .....

    Your call, your decision

    .... e-mail has been bounced by an ISP/Admin that chose to use the SpamCopDNSBL in a blocking fashion as a tool to manage their incoming spam spew ....

    ... GMail refuses to follow RFC standards and include the origination of the e-mail in the headers ....

    ... the IP address gets listed by the SpamCopDNSBL, which is a list available for use by others ..... gettig itself un-listed when the math involved in the listing/de-listing process works out ....

    This discussion already contains dialog with GMail techs/engineers ... why ask here?

    This is already answered by the SpamCop FAQ (links at the top of this very page) ... conversational dialog within this existing (and huge) Topic/Dicussion ....

    Gee, I thought I was being polite to everyone. Thanks for "correcting me".

  2. Hello all

    I am a new GMail user whose mail has been bounced by servers whose administrators accepted the SpamCop blacklist entries for GMail. I understand that this is because GMail chooses to hide the IP of the originating source and put only the IP of their own server. Hence the server gets shut down for many users when a few mis-use the service.

    My question is whether GMail could give the option to its users to make the true origin IP of the mail available in the message header and what effect this would have. If they did this which of the following would be the result:

    a-Users who select this option are immune to BL of the google servers.

    b-Users are still affected by the BL of the google server since it also appears in the mail.

    c-Depends upon settings made by administrators of the sites that use the SpamCop BL.

    Thanks for your time in answering my query.
