Report: Several times parser did not lookup contact adresses via abuse.net

Recommended Posts

For instance, "No reporting addresses found for 89.47.3.126", while Win32Whois queried abuse.net and found support[at]teentelecom.net and viorel[at]teentelecom.net.

I do remember some parse reports where abuse.net was succesfully queried.

Why is abuse.net not àllways queried, when a ripe etc whois fails?

No reporting addresses found for 89.47.3.126, using devnull for tracking.

That's the key.

SpamCop only consults with Abuse.net when it gets a reporting address from Whois lookup.

SpamCop caches entries to avoid DOS attacking abuse.net but can be refreshed by you

There is no abuse address available

For email servers you can try

postmaster[at][89.47.3.126]

This server is listed by SpamCop BL and CBL

http://cbl.abuseat.org/lookup.cgi?ip=89.47.3.126

You can get a free windows app which lists what email addresses there are

The idea is if you have the time to get better than SpamCop, which "errs on the side of error" to not send

I get confused here. Are you telling me that the two emailadresses that Win32Whois found at abuse.net, support[at]teentelecom.net and viorel[at]teentelecom.net are wrong?

I'm just saying SpamCop's software could not find one.

Neither could mine

Yours can

As SpamCop is a "Bot" if one has time you can actually get better than SpamCop if you wish to. I use VER and often check entries

These low life spammers Brazil of course where the worst are

http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5434388439zf...5609e082008b07z

They have "unsubscribe links" which just confirm email address which they pass on to other Brazil spammers (probably same spammer under alias)

Anyhow abuse address given is the spam friendly abuse[at]ovh.net

With

http://www.gena01.com/win32whois

It gives a couple more

In that case, I recommend gena01.com/win32whois to windows users, for finding contact addresses when the spamcop parser doesn't find one. For me, it found most of them.

I pasted the found addresses, separated by a space, in the "User Notification" address field in the "Report spam to:" section of the spamcop parse report.
