Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to report some spam but Spamcop wont accept it because the Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source.

I receive this mail on my gmail account & it seems the spammer also uses a gmail account. I have configured Gmail as my Mailhost in my spamcop account. The mail seems indeed being send from internal IP range (10.x.x.x), This is not the internal IP range of my home network (168.x.x.x).

I think this might be the internal IP from Google Gmail servers but i'm not sure of this.

Have a look at it:

Message ....... containing url .......

You can see 2 differen ip adresses iin the 10.x.x.x range in the mail. So can this mail be reported as spam ?
Are these Google's internal IP adresses ?
Is this a way to hide the origin of the spam mail ?
Is there another question about this i haven't ask but seems important & you can provide the answer to it, please do.
Thanks for reading my question & providing answers and solutions.

Hi, Albert,

&nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Yes, those are Google internal IP addresses and no, you can not report this via SpamCop. Please see SC Forum Topic "Gmail, forwarded" for more information.

&nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp For future reference: please don't post such a long list of spam headers here. The Tracking URL gives us complete information in a very terse way.

Anyone know why Google is limiting spam reporting to being through their online web form? That reduces the efficacy of tools like Spamcop.

Hi, forrie,

&nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp This isn't a Google limitation; it's a SpamCop limitation.
