Qwest.net doesnt report source IP right

Recommended Posts

Qwest.net mail system really sucks. The don't provide correct email headers or they remove some.

When trying to add my mailhost from them I am getting the error

Sorry, SpamCop has encountered errors:

Source IP not found.

Your email host does not appear to correctly identify the sending IP ofthe email you receive.

If you feel this is in error, please try again or seek help in the SpamCop help forum: http://www.spamcop.net/help.shtml

Any help on this please?

As large as Qwest would have one believe that they are, it would seem very odd that you'd be the only one with a problem with their headers. But without some sort of sample data, not sure how anyone here could get into the fray.

There are Pinned items in this Forum section, some labeled with "Read before posting" .. a couple of them have contact points for those "out of the ordinary" problems .. have you looked at any of those items? Have you submitted any spam for reporting prior to this MailHost configuration attempt? The concept there would be the ability to look at one of those via a Tracking URL and see one of your "problem" headers.

I did try to find the offending header but didn't have any luck at it.

And yes I did search the forum to see if there were other qwest issues.

And since I can't make spam reports here I'll submit them to a few others I know that will have the IP's blocked.

------- This is for adding the mailhost

Please remove your secret code from the Mailhost reply.

The code to remove can be found in the "X-SpamCop-Conf:" line but found elsewhere as well.

And yes I did search the forum to see if there were other qwest issues.

I pointed to "Pinned" items in seen at the entry page to this Forum section .. and was specifically thinking of the one titled;

Pinned: Mailhost Issues - please read before posting

Please Read BEFORE Posting

And since I can't make spam reports here I'll submit them to a few others I know that will have the IP's blocked.

I have no idea what you mean by "get to work here" .... and the first sentence I can't begin to decode .....

Your "spam" header sample parsed just fine .. see http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z855101847zed...536e7b50b90bccz .... though I did have to "play" with it a bit .. the To: line contents are showing wrapped with no leading white space, but I have no idea if that was due to your spam, your tools, or this application (though noting that other wrapped header lines did show the leading whitespace in the code box)
