Deputies [at] Spamcop = Undeliverable

Recommended Posts

So, more of an FYI to staff:

About 2/3 of the way through the bouncing all email snafu, and before an acknowledgement was made of the problem, I sent an email to Deputies to see if there was an official update.

Today I got back the following:

"The following message to <deputies [at] spamcop.net> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.4.7 - Delivery expired (message too old) 'timeout'"
"Reporting-MTA: dns; prod-sc-smtp2.sv4.ironport.com
Final-Recipient: rfc822;deputies [at] spamcop.net
Action: failed
Status: 5.4.7
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 5.4.7 - Delivery expired (message too old) 'timeout' (delivery attempts: 0)"

...From what I understand, deputies[at]spamcop.net should work but please note that the official e-mail address of the deputies is deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net.

Good point. I see most of the references do use admin.spamcop.net. Thank you.

In the past I had successful contacted them using just deputies [at ] spamcop.net, but I see now, they had always replied using the [at]admin.spamcop.net account. Perhaps they intentionally didn't put in the pointer after the move and this is a WAD (working as designed).

Possibly just a temporary thing while the new IP address of vmx5.spamcop.net was promulgating - deputies[at]spamcop.net looks okay now.

Perhaps the [at]admin.spamcop.net has a differenet MX record ?
