  1. Hello again everyone, I am now using Mozilla Thunderbird to help me with my spam problem. I set it to autoreport spam. The vast majority is coming from 76.96.62.xx, which is a farm field in Kansas (corner of NW River Valley Rd. and NW 120th St.) and a Comcast range of addresses. However, there is a second "received" IP coming from Romania. I'm not sure which one is being faked here.. I think it would be the second one (the one Spamcop thinks is the real one)... am I right? Here are the two recently reported spam emails in question: 2552322841__&__2552322379.. They each have two Received fields..!!

    Funinatl, please do tell us what happens, if anything, in a week or so. I'm extremely angry and disappointed that Comcast has such high prices on their service here, has ads plastered all over their webmail system to the point of unrecognizable garbage, can't fix their incoming spam problem, and to top it off they filter outgoing "spam" that their system could have already determined to be spam before we even got it! Fuming mad and looking seriously at Verizon.
  3. EDIT: Never mind, it was a different problem... I am using this new system for my comcast email address. In my configuration, I have a large list of comcast mail servers and (their?) "relaying IPs". I sent myself an email and it got on my spamcop "report" queue. Comcast decided to use omta08.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net, but that is not on the HUGE list of mailhosts. Does this mean I have to manually add in a mailserver every time Comcast randomly decides to add/rename one? In fact, how do I even add anything to the list?
  4. Ok, never mind this thread. Sorry! I had a spam filter that basically went bonkers.. My filter would junk anything from 76.96.62.xx unless the Received field had a familiar email server. I added my own email address as one of them, but I should have used a "From" field instead. Anyway, even if I set this mailhost configuration up, it shouldn't stop me from submitting my own email in a spam report (by accident), right? Sorry about the mixup guys.

    Well, looks like a temporary non-glitch. After I started receiving spamcop reports, they've died down again, and I'm getting 3 spams a day that don't get reported. :angry: Comcast hasn't sent me any emails about the issue either. Perhaps it's time to talk to another hapless customer support fool to try to get some answers out of them.

    For a few weeks now, only a few spam reports were being sent through Comcast, but I am happy to report that I am now getting every single spam report sent through. Not sure what did it though: * A few days ago, I talked to a Comcast rep and he forwarded the matter to a tech (he claimed Comcast never blocks email from being sent, but I insisted he forward our conversation to a tech. No idea if he actually did.) * About two days ago, I set up a specific mailhost (comcast mailhost) through the new Spamcop system. That might have helped if spamcop actually rejected emails (sometimes) as well as comcast (if Comcast did sometimes send them through).

    I have had the exact same problems for several weeks now. It seems Comcast is simply not sending anything to Spamcop. I don't think it's just a problem with sending Comcast emails, but also receiving them. My parents' friends in Russia sent us an email and it never appeared. From-work emails (GE) also don't arrive. Also, I am puzzled as to why it can possibly be forward that is mis-identified as spam by Comcast's servers. If they don't block it coming in, they shouldn't block it coming out, right?

    spamcop header parsing error?

    Well, I got one from Anthropologie (not spam) through 76.96.62.46, and it's definitely not a Comcast personal account. Perhaps it is using a Comcast business network? http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1478318100zf...dc4ae869fd3083z The only other non-spam email using 76.96.52.xx was routed from 76.96.62.94, using mail.mlspin.com. (non-spam real estate offerings email) On a different note, let me say that it seems SpamCop has been apparently working for me, blocking some spam emails that I've gotten that it previously didn't block before. Note: Comcast has a "Report spam" button, but I don't think it works too well. (or at all)

    spamcop header parsing error?

    Update. I was sent an email from Romania, and it was at 76.96.30.xx, not 76.96.32.xx. Some regular weekly emails also started coming in from 76.96.32.xx. My theory now is that it could just be a new server that Comcast installed, and by coincidence a lot of spam went through 76.96.32.xx first.

    spamcop header parsing error?

    He didn't send me anything yet, but I just got a normal daily email though 76.96.62.94 which I never had gotten through that server. The mystery widens..

    spamcop header parsing error?

    Yeah, thanks for the help. I'm good, I guess. I actually tried to contact Comcast (email) on several occasions regarding setting some sort of mail filters for my username but I was totally ignored. I decided not to persue the matter further via phone, as it probably won't do any good. >Perhaps Comcast sends all 'suspicious' email to a particular server where, if possible, it 'makes' sense of the headers? I asked someone I know from Romania to send me an email to see if it gets filtered or not.

    Ok, here is a normal email that is not spam. http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1471488763zb...1783950327dbbez

    spamcop header parsing error?

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing... I'm not talking about sccrmxc12, but 76.96.62.xx. Only spam emails come from 76.96.62.xx.
  14. agamemnus

    spamcop header parsing error?

    That server only has sent me spam as far as I know. Do you think if someone sent me an email from Romania it would be routed through 76.96.62.xx and then sent to me?

    spamcop header parsing error?

    But those are the tracking ids.. eg.. http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrac...rtid=2552322841 or are you saying that other users can't access the id's? In that case: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1469868693z8...d6c2b290d600f0z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1469867047zf...e2698b28df911dz =) So, as I understand it, the spammer in question is sending spam to a Comcast server, which then sends it to me?
  16. Hi, I'm having trouble reporting spam by forwarding to Spamcop. The auto-responder claims it can't find the spam message! Below is the message with the "spam confirmation ID" and my email address masked. A few other questions: * I was able to send it manually by pasting in the headers and content with the "outlook workaround" link, but I did not want to report anything to the host. (I'm pretty sure the host is a spammer) If I uncheck all the reports to the host, will Spamcop process the spam message as spam? * If I forward the message successfully, how can I make sure only SpamCop receives the message? Thanks in advance. Here is the message:

    problem reporting spam via forwarding

    Thanks again everyone. Wazoo: So you reported it? Great. Farelf: What I mean is that I all the fixes that Spamcop lists are for manual reports (clicking buttons to report...) as opposed to an Outlook rule that I can run on a set of spam messages that I would like to forward and perma-delete. Anyway, I'm going to try to set up my spam rules using a PHP scri_pt so I'll be bypassing Outlook altogether. Miss Betsy: Thanks for the explanation on the reports.

    I don't know. If I just uncheck everything and click "send".., nothing happens. So, I clicked "cancel." Now it says this:

    problem reporting spam via forwarding

    I'll look into the outlook issue, thanks.. I did submit the report, though... when I click on "past reports", I see it as submitted... EDIT: I looked at all the fixes and as far as I can tell, there isn't any fix (free or not) for having "fixed" header and content using the Rules Wizard...

    problem reporting spam via forwarding

    Thanks all. I sent it as an attachment (using Microsoft Outlook 2000's "send as attachment" action), but it still doesn't work...same problem as before. I checked it by sending it to myself, and in Outlook it does show as an attachment, but in my Comcast webmail it does not show as an attached file.... (just "---attachment below---", then the header, then the body.) =(

    problem reporting spam via forwarding

    I see, thanks. So you mean by "further forwards" that Spamcop WON'T send the spam back to the spammer's host or ISP, if I just forward the attached spam?
  22. agamemnus

    problem reporting spam via forwarding

    No, I didn't forward it as an attachment. I didn't notice I had to take the step of reporting the spam after submitting it, so I did that. Here is the tracking URL of the manually reported spam (my ID for the spammer was still not totally removed unfortunately..): http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1454844873zf...9165e5dd4d28baz Ok, thanks. I'm talking about forwarding the spam message to SpamCop. I don't want SpamCop to forward this to the "ISP" or domain because I believe they are also spammers. The tracking report shows that if I report the spam, it's identical to clicking the link in the spam, and I don't want to get more.
