forward spam fails to find IP manual paste works OK

Recommended Posts

I have received a couple of SPAMs from the same source. When I add the headers and forward like I do for all the other spam on this account I get a message back that no source IP address was found. If I logon and do a manual paste of the header, the IP address is found and the spam is processed normally. Is there someone who can look at the header and tell me what the problem is? The header below is from Outlook 2007 with the email addresses removed.

Not all e-mail addresses were removed for starters.

As noted in th various How to ask a Good Question links pasted in numerous places, what is actually needed is a Tracking URL for your 'problem' submittal. There are Received: lines in that header, but of more importance is exactly how the e-mail was actually submitted to the parser.

Your description of "add the headers and forward" is actually somewhat disturbing. Why "only" the headers? What about "forward as attachment" ???? The picture you've painted in my mind is a single e-mail with a body containing the headers from several e-mails as the body content .. which would not work at all, never will.

On the flip side, there are numerous existing Topics/Discussions dealing with problems with Outlook e-mail submittals. Have you doe any of that research yet?
