msg from spamcop appears to be spam?

8 posts in this topic

ht tp://www.spamcop.net/mcgi - Sorry, all tests failed.

We cannot deliver mail to the address you provided: alexz[at]blhr.org. Double check the address provided or try again later. Your mailhost appears to be offline.

Detailed errors:

Connecting to mail.step-in.biz.:

smtpSend:smtpEnd: message transmission failed: 552 Sorry, this message appears to be spam (#5.6.0)

Sometimes, mailservers are temporarilly unavailable. If you believe you have entered your email address and other details correctly, you might just wait a few minutes (or 24 hours) and try again.

I sent a ticket to that host, from what I have found, their level of spam assasin is very low - 4, that is why, my wild guess is, it is rejecting mail from over here... what else I can do?!?

As the link provided didn't actually go anywhere (due to only being a partial URL) I edited the starting post.

To my mind, this does not seem to be a Parsing/Reporting issue, guessing that it is in fact related to th MailHost Confoguration of a Reporting Account, so will be moving this Topic with this post.

There is no one 'here' that would have any idea/contol over your ISP's filter settings, and even the 'score of 4' can be generated many different ways. What is more likely is that a word filter is in use and it's triggering on seeing the word 'spam' ...???? Of course, based on so much spammer abuse of these 'new' Domain names, it's not that hard to conceive that step-in.biz may in fact have SpamCop.net specifically blocked ... no accusations, just years of previous experience showing here .....

Not said is whether you can whitelist any addresses. This and several other "lost, missing, bounced e-mail problems" are addressed in several FAQ entries found here.

Not amended quite enough. I found 2 copied of your secret code in that message and replaced them with x, but you should probably request a new code from deputies[at]spamcop.net just to be safe.

As different ISPs change the parameters on their spam filters, this does happen.  Although I have not seen it in a while, the fact that the word 'spam'/spamcop is found in the header has in the past caused a message from SpamCop to be flagged.  The problem can easily be fixed if the ISP (Google) would white-list SpamCop.net.  That of course is between you and Google.  Not much SpamCop can do to fix this.

I've seen it happen from time to time too, when I've had copies of spam reports forwarded to me. When this happens, I usually log into webmail and mark the message as "not spam."
