Apologies if I misread the situation.

...No apology warranted (at least, not yet! :) <g>) I just wanted to let him know, just in case he doesn't want it so readily available.

Spamcop is still forwarding complaints to tanetadm[at]moe.edu.tw

Submitted: Sunday, May 09, 2010 7:19:48 PM -0500:

ATM Card Value is $1,000,000,00 Million USD

Apparently not enough spam coming from Taiwanese sources for Spamcop to bother fixing this, even

after over a year?

Notice the "devnull" part of that address.

We don't send reports to tanetadm[at]moe.edu.tw because they feed the "From" address of our report to a spam list and start sending to it.

Notice the "devnull" part of that address.

Noted, and noted the rationale for this. However, unlike almost every other Spamcop reporting

breakout I've seen, no mention is made in the report that reports are being forwarded to

abuse[at]ntu.edu.tw.

Here's the breakout of the response I received:

Tracking message source: 210.59.14.2:

Reports regarding this spam have already been sent:

Re: 210.59.14.2 (Administrator of network where email originates)

Reportid: 4939297280 To: tanetadm#moe.edu.tw[at]devnull.spamcop.net

If reported today, reports would be sent to:

Re: 210.59.14.2 (Administrator of network where email originates)

tanetadm#moe.edu.tw[at]devnull.spamcop.net

Nowhere in the above report does it indicate that the report was forwarded

to abuse[at]ntu.edu.tw. In other words, there is no way I could have known

that the report was being forwarded to abuse[at]ntu.edu.tw if you hadn't told me here.

210.59.14.2 is not a part of the 140.112.0.0 - 140.112.255.255 network so this report was NOT sent to abuse[at]ntu.edu.tw

Noted, again. I'll just shut up and eat my spam.

When digging into this, I found that to get the proper abuse report to address, this whole block (140.117.0.0 - 140.138.255.255) needs to be interrogated against:

whois.twnic.net

And not whois.apnic.net

That returns an email address which returns a valid abuse.net lookup.
