Read a bit more around the FAQs, and apparently this isn't the correct forum for this problem... This is a mailhost configuration problem and so this thread should probably be moved there. I wasn't very specific in my first post, sorry.
1) I reported spam.
2) I get a "supposed receiving system not associated…" message, from which I understood that Lycos have changed their mailservers conf.
3) I try to re-register their mailhosts through the mailhost configuration tool.
4) Mailhost configuration tool sends me 3 emails. I forward them to the specified address.
5) I get 3 messages back, each saying "Spamcop account configuration: error" and the contents of each is:
"Sorry, but SpamCop has encountered errors:
Source IP not found.
Your email host does not appear to correctly identify the sending IP of
the email you receive."
So, turetzsr - what I meant by "registering my account" was actually configuring Lycos' mailhosts through the mailhost configuration tool.
Wazoo - thanks, I'll post a mangled version of the headers here. I'd also appreciate if you'd tell me how to contact the deputies. Or should I send the full headers to you so you'd forward them?
Here are the mangled headers from one of my mailhost configuration emails:
