168.61.170.142 - "Using rdns to route to correct Microsoft department" but reports go to the spammer

Recommended Posts

 

168.61.0.0 - 168.63.255.255 is a Microsoft netblock. Why isn't SpamCop reporting this to abuse@microsoft.com?

> Using rdns to route to correct Microsoft department

Whatever SpamCop is trying to do here is clearly broken and likely to deliver reports directly to spammers hosted on Microsoft.

That is a good question.  I would almost expect abuse@microsoft.com to be on the list as well in addition to the administrator's abuse address.  I think this might be microsoft's cloud and it is going to the server admin, which may or may not be the spammer.
