"Softbank" spam sent to [me][at]spamcop.net (forwarded, my ISP graylists it)

Recommended Posts

Lately Spamcop forwards a lot of spam sent to [my userid][at]spamcop.net to my ISP, where they're mostly binned into graymail.

(My ISP's email says "original message has been attached" but unless there was malware attached, all they seem to show me is the text inline as shown below -- their graymail strips headers -- they're looking into this, in case it's something they can fix -- but right now I can't report this spam.)

Is there a way to tell Spamcop that Spamcop is forwarding Softbank spam addressed to [me][at]spamcop.net?

Here's an example, with [MY ISP] and [my userid] munged -- the following is all that I get in graymail:


[MY ISP]'s AntiSpam detection systems have identified this email as
possible spam. The original message has been attached to this report
so you can view it (if it isn't spam.) If this is a false positive,
you may want to whitelist the sender or messages subject using our
member tools.

I have not used [at]spamcop.net forwarding but it is my understanding that spamcop is no longer doing any filtering but forwarding everything.

Lou is correct. When we took over the MX from CESmail in 2014 our concern was we didn't want users losing email addresses they had come to rely on, but it was not feasible to take over the actual mail service. Therefore our promise was to forward received mail to an address provided by the user. No filtering is done.

The mail shouldn't be coming to you as an attachment. The mail just passes through as a .fwd rule, adding a hop to the header. There is no actual server at mvx.spamcop.net to accept the mail, store it and forward it.
