Responding to confirm w/Outlook

Recommended Posts

I went through the steps to configure my account with the new 'mailhost' option on the site. (I just tripped upon it - should I have been notified somehow?)

I configured my accounts in the way that it asked, by entering my email addresses on the site, then both sending the original email as an attachment, and copying the body into a new email and sending to the response address. Perhaps that was my (first) mistake.

I got back the following message:

Hello SpamCop user,

Sorry, but SpamCop has encountered errors:

Sorry, source IP not found.

Your email host does not appear to correctly identify the sending IP of the email you receive.

Is the problem that I'm using Outlook 97, that I'm a dork, or that I'm missing something?

Thanks in advance,

Jay

How can i register an Exchange (Outlook) email for the new "mailhosts" system? The problem is, of course, when i forward the registration email back to you, Outlook doesn't include the headers! Is there an alternative way to register, akin to the special Outlook spam submission form?

Thanks,

HTH. Good luck!

It worked, thanks! (I edited your instructions above: it's Ctrl-A/C to highlight and copy the headers, not Alt-A/C.)
