Reason for blocking 203.174.137.106

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I work for Tesserent, a managed security company with security appliances on customer sites. One of these customers (OfficeMax) recently started getting their main IP (203.174.137.106) added to the SpamCop blacklist. The reason given is that they have sent email to a spam Trap.

This is fair enough, but we have been unable to identify the email(s) that have triggered the listing.

Any assistance in providing whatever header information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

"System has sent mail to SpamCop spam traps in the past week (spam traps are secret, no reports or evidence are provided by SpamCop)"

So how come your email server is hitting spamtraps?

A spamtrap is an email address hidden never used email address except as a honey pot for spammers

You may have a compromised email account used by a spammer?

Suggest you insist that ALL passwords used have aprefix o using in uppercase the first letter of ones name

George (G)

last two numbers of telephone 123456 (56

an equals sign (=)

then their upercase lowercase supersecret alphanumeric password

need to reset all your users passwords (assuming you youself are not spammers)

Write to SC Admin Don D'Minion, service[at]admin.spamcop.net, to see if he can assist. Spamtrap addresses are of course guarded most closely and that sending address is not exactly "broadcasting" so there may be issues with that (former) SCbl listing.
