[Pre-resolved] No source IP address found, cannot proceed

Recommended Posts

I had all of my spams start coming back with the subject's error message this afternoon. I searched the forums, but didn't find anything that specifically helped me, and in fact it seems the cause of this error can vary.

Just before posting I figured it out. So I'm posting for posterity, in case others have the same issue.

One of my searches did uncover some help about mis-configured Mailhosts info, and this turned out to be the case with me, although not directly. I'm certain I've set up my Mailhosts info correctly. What really happened is that I logged into Spamcop reporting with my home login over lunch to report spam from there, and then forgot to switch back to my work login. Both accounts have the same name though, so they look the same from the reporting web form. This invoked the bad Mailhosts issue, since my home and work Mailhosts are different.

The lesson is make sure you have unique names set for each account so you don't conduse yourself like I did.

Excellent suggestion and thank you for keeping our data up to date... I use Steven Underwood (home) and Steven Underwood (work).

Needed: just how to 'title' this little factoid such that it would be 'findable' in any of the FAQs ... and recognizable by any future impactees ....

Definitely needs to be filed by the error message, that's what I looked for.

For example :) :

I don't understand the 'example' .... this looks more like a GMail to GMail spam .. not parsable by the SpamCop.net tool-set because it only contains internal non-routable UP addresses .... there's a couple of those Topics alreafy in place discussing that specific issue ...

Definitely needs to be filed by the error message, that's what I looked for.

As it happens, I've been collecting this kind of stuff for yet another FAQ page, Wiki entry .... but, you say in your first post that the Subject line was the error message ... I don't recall "Kinda like Pre-owned" ever coming up before ...???? Granted that this is in the Description line, but ...???

As far as that goes ... that section in my notes (lots of details snipped) . and this should actually be in the FAQ Development section, but ... not that far alonf in setting this thinf up (bad and internl addresses section has me floundering a bit with the details ...)

Parsing Issues

No source IP address found, cannot proceed

1. bad submittal

2. non-routavle addresses, like GMail to GMail, AOL to AOL

3. Multiple MailHost configured SpamCop.net Reporting accounts in use, spam reports are being submitted from/to the wrong account

The only reason I can think of for not finding oodles of these in prior posts would be the inclusion of the word 'No' .. as it's lass than four characters long (which is what led to adding the other Search box so as to use Google's search tools ....)
