    [Resolved] 419 spam Header Won't Parse

    Thanks for posting the tracking URLs. Hopefully, we can collect these links to help IPv6 support become a reality.
  2. I have thought much about this with my own current address. The problem with a used email account is that someone out there either knows the address, or has it in their addressbook. Due to this possibility alone, if an account was ever used by a human, it can never be a SpamTrap. In the past, I actually did this and had a misreported buddy get the admin talk. All I can say is ouch! Now "I'm sorry!" just does not work anymore. That said, the only way you can turn over an address to SpamCop is to guarantee that no humans are ever going to send messages there. I myself would refused to manually report email from that account, unless it is guaranteed to be declared humanless. The only person that knows if email at that account could be spam is you.

    Now that is odd. That tracking URL does not have the IP they specify on it.

    Reporting problems today?

    If you are talking about the email submission, it has always been there on the "report spam" page. The only difference between a "free" user and a "paying" user is the short line above the "Your average reporting time is:" line.

    I believe this is the URL they are talking about: http://forum.spamcop.net/scwik/QuickReporting/

    either/or. I do not have enough spam to tell for sure, but I think my slow ones might be having whois issues with RIPE. This will include both the mail source IP and the link host as the whois portion of the parser works the same on both.

    Could it be divided out that your slow ones were in the RIPE area?

    The sad thing is that the SCBL is not getting populated with new stuff during the downtime. I would think that would hurt ironport more than it would help their own software.

    Yea, Looks like it might be still broke.

    I believe this is somewhat normal as one spam can be sent to more than one email. I believe each of those sent out count separately.

    This is new. Maybe we are getting somewhere.

    Ping is not completely a good test with the default settings. I have worked with switches that only let through 122 bytes. Ping by default is 80 bytes. The diagnosis too longer until we made the ping packet size closer to the MTU. I can say that the front-end server are responding perfect, but seem to be timing out when trying to contact the backend servers. Both the spam emails and the whois information will be stored and cached in the database. The issue could be either along the lines of the database, or also could be when it tries to go out and perform an external query such as whois or DNS from abuse.net. I believe we would see something different if this was a brute force on the Akamai servers.

    You mean the news page http://mail.spamcop.net/news.php. The status page is in the upper right corner in the link found by the white, blue, and green image: http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...&page=stats

    FYI, once I get my first gateway timeout, it is about 30 minutes for it to work. From what I see, it times out at each mail message hop. The database could be affecting the whois lookups too. Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.76a7ab41.1341778670.13a8e432

    This tracker goes with all of the following: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5366876323z2...e538cb80f83f3cz -> 2600:6:340:1::41ab:a77a

    Still working here and the "reports sent" on the stats page is going up a little. We have two days from the time spam was received to go back and report if anyone has those.

    Just a quick note that I got the following from 2600:6:340:1::41ab:a791, if it helps. Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.76a7ab41.1341613235.10034406 EDIT: It appears to be working again.

    This is an issue. From the stats page, I noticed that is has dropped considerable. From my time on a university helpdesk, the hardest problems to diagnose were the intermittant ones. Since this works at the high usage times of the day and stops at other times, it is much more difficult to diagnose. If I knew how to help, I would start gathering information. This I know, the problem is the same between me and both IPv6 and IPv4 frontend servers. This looks like a backend server issue. I wonder if the frontend servers are trying IPv6 to the backend servers and failing?

    It is odd that this is only certain times of the day where the issue arises. When the issue does happen, both the mail host section and the reporting section on the only place that I have been able to detect the issue.

    error: Headers not found

    Well, all is working again and I am not able to duplicate it with the received lines. I noticed that gmail puts a bunch of spaces at the beginning of the RFC822 message, but the "Return mailhost configuration" screen still accepts it. The only wait I can get the error to duplicate is to start the headers with "Hello SpamCop user,". It could have been related to the partial outage. Don will find something when you forward the message to him.

    error: Headers not found

    Ouch on my part, as "Show Original" was called "View Source" on the last gmail template. If I recall right, there is a body box and a header box. It sounds like you are pasting the whole thing as one message into the header section as expected. I am not able to test it as I have a permanent "Gateway Timeout". As soon as it comes back, I can try this myself.

    error: Headers not found

    Ah, when you copied out the mail host email out, did you use the drop-down option on the right for "show original"? Gmail has the headers hidden there. SpamCop needs these headers to see all servers that test message goes through.

    error: Headers not found

    A tracking URL could be also helpful. When I get a message like this, it could means that SpamCop could not see any headers. This could be that your spam came from and internal Gmail users.

    discarded as a forgery

    Please note that once you get your mail host configuration setup, that you go back to the old tracking links and verify that they are picking up the setup properly.
  25. This is true for the immediate future, however, over time, if you keep up a regular schedule of reporting spam, the spammers will get fed up and leave your address alone. This took me about six years after signing up for SpamCop for my received spam to trickle down to one message every two days from twenty messages a day. Thanks to the SpamCop block list, my average rejection rate is 6 spam messages a day. Please take special note in what Don says about accept and bounce, which should never be deployed. The only true options are to either reject the message during the connection, or to send it to the bit bucket. Yes, once we all work together as a group, we can trim down the spam.
