  1. Wow - I thank you so very much. To me the header is all a foreign language. I know that the email gets from point A to point B and the header has something to do with it but that is the limit of my understanding. I will copy your notes and forward them on to my relative. One last question (for now)...should I read up on the mailhosts forum for the thams.us? I am trying to be proactive to prevent further problems. Thanks again!
  2. I do not own the thams.com so if there is a thams.net involved then you know more than I know. All I know is that GoDaddy is bouncing email from thams.us back to thams.com with the message "Reason: 553 - rejected due to spam". My telephone conversation with a tech at GoDaddy provided me the confirmation that too much spam came from the thams.com email address (IP) and that as a result GoDaddy has blocked the IP. Would you be so kind as to explain some of the following: Volume Statistics for this IP Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average Last day ........ 1.8 .. -100% Last 30 days .. 0.5 .. -100% Average ........ 0.0 (very strange numbers there????) What are these numbers and why are they strange? Is it because they recently moved the thams.com server? are you involved with this URL? It is noted that the SpamCop parser tossed this line out as a forgery, but ..... What URL? The thams.us is mine the thams.com is a relative's. I don't have any hands on the thams.com, its server, or anything else involved with it. I am just the lost individual who is trying to learn what is happening and how to avoid further problems. What is tossed as a forgery? ERROR: I couldn't find any MX records for thams.net. If you want to receive E-mail on this domain, you should have MX record(s). Without any MX records, mailservers should attempt to deliver mail to the A record for thams.net. I can't continue in a case like this, so I'm assuming you don't receive mail on this domain. ERROR: I could not find any mailservers for thams.net What is a MX record? I receive email sent to thams.com and it is forwarded to thams.us. I don't know that is done with thams.net. Anyway, based on your samples, I again fail to see where GoDaddy would have received any notifies ... So, where I'm at now .... what have you got that says "GoDaddy blocked something" ...???? 24017[/snapback] Let me know what else I can provide for you. I realize that this is confusing and that is why I came here and posted my question. I need help understanding what is going on, how to address in a productive manner and how to prevent further problems. Am I using the wrong way of reporting the spam? Show I use a mailhost, as suggested by Miss Betsy? Thanks!
  3. OK - hopefully I am on the right track. If I understand correctly there is a method other than quick reporting that I need to look into. Is this in my settings? If so, then please guide me to that location and advice on the alternative. I am not familiar with all these settings and I need the guidance. Also, Miss Betsy, can you explain mailhosts? This is all new to me and I appreciate your suggestions. I think you get the gist of the problem. I have email forwarded from thams.com to thams.us to spamcop.net. For some reason that no one can explain GoDaddy (thams.us, which is mine) blocked the IP for thams.com (which belongs to a relative of mine) due to spam. Thams.com is not the source of the spam; thams.com is forwarding all email to me at my request and a lot of it is spam which I have reported through SpamCop. GoDaddy is looking into it but I have not heard back from them. In the meantime I am trying to prevent further problems. I feel that SpamCop is an important service and want to make certain that I am not contributing to the problem in my attempt to report spam. If this does any good, the following is from SpamCop Quick report data and after the header of a spam email. Hopefully you can help me understand how to read it – Tracking URL: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z729457252z7f...05dc27cf313f35z Here is the header of an email currently sitting in my ‘Held mail’ box – Return-Path: <oiivvsufgaes[at]hotmail.com> Delivered-To: spamcop-net-thams <at> spamcop.net Received: (qmail 15080 invoked from network); 7 Feb 2005 01:24:30 -0000 Received: from unknown ( by blade2.cesmail.net with QMQP; 7 Feb 2005 01:24:30 -0000 Received: from adsl-63-197-2-193.dsl.snfc21.pacbell.net (HELO thams.net) ( by mailgate.cesmail.net with SMTP; 7 Feb 2005 01:24:29 -0000 X-Apparently-Delivered-To: <karen <at> thams.com> Received: from ([]) by thams.net (8.12.8/8.12.8) with SMTP id j171OLPH029502 for <karen <at> thams.com>; Sun, 6 Feb 2005 17:24:22 -0800 X-Message-Info: 91ekASsdhVCT280ZyN94T654VLypSHImujFphoHRrkh674F Received: from yahoo.com ( by oq161-hb47.yahoo.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(2.4.2463.5625); Mon, 07 Feb 2005 20:25:15 +0300 Received: from yahoo.com (yahoo.com by yahoo.com (8.12.10/8.12.9) with ESMTP id r914VBZ087 for <karen <at> thams.com>; Mon, 07 Feb 2005 11:17:15 -0600 (EST) (envelope-from oiivvsufgaes[at]hotmail.com) Received: from RCU5581708751 (modemcable8.300-52.mc.yahoo.com (authenticated bits=0) by yahoo.com (8.12.10/8.12.9) with ESMTP id yjd765VZK7mss326 for <karen <at> thams.com>; Mon, 07 Feb 2005 18:21:15 +0100 (EST) (envelope-from oiivvsufgaes[at]hotmail.com) Message-ID: <5ln2r431$ji5ntu567ck21$1im0mg95[at]WNB65189244380342> From: "Bridgette Silva" <oiivvsufgaes[at]hotmail.com> To: <karen <at> thams.com> Subject: REAL VALIUM,XANAX,DARVON,LEVITRA..SOMA..MUCH MORE......

  4. OK - let's try this again. 'abc[at]xyz.com' was my way of giving a fictitious example. If you are not interested in helping someone who is not as computer literate as you are then I will not waste your time. However, I will say that I am NOT blaming SpamCop. I am only trying to learn what has happened and how to prevent any further problem. I am a big advocate of SpamCop and want to find a way to avoid further problems when the intent is to get the spammer not the legit email provider. If you are interested in helping me then you need to explain what it is that you need from me and I will do all that I can to provide that information. I will tell you that the email that is forwarded to me comes from thams.com and that the email that I forward to spamcop.net comes from thams.us. What else do you need? Do you need a full header from spam that I have received? Do you need something from the SpamCop Quick reporting data? Just let me know and I will do what is within my knowledge and ability. Thank you.
  5. I hope that someone at the Admin level can help me on this one. Here’s the problem…I have an email address that I use on my business cards, etc. That address (abc[at]xyz.com) is owned by one of my relatives. The abc[at]xyz.com if forwarded to another email address which I own (abc[at]xyz.us). The abc[at]xyz.us if forwarded to my spamcop.net email address for filtering and reporting of spam. I receive a lot of spam every day at the xyz.com address. I purchased the xyz.us address through GoDaddy. Yesterday GoDaddy blocked the xyz.com IP because of spam. I am assuming that because my email is routed from xyz.com to xyz.us to spamcop.net that xyz.com appears to be a player in the spam game. I know that this is a long and confusing story, but here’s my question…Is there anyway to prevent xyz.com from getting caught in the loop? Spamcop.net has not yet block xyz.com but I am afraid that is next. HELP PLEASE
  6. Very good points Wazoo and Petzle - I appreciate your feedback. I will see these reports in a different light. Chow!!!
  7. Thank you Petzl - I will do just that...but one would think that there was a way to stop those reports from being forward. Oh well. Thanks again.
  8. There is no "problem". I would just rather not receive these reports. If I have made an error in the configuration then I would appreciate assistance in idenfying where that option is located and how to change it. Thanks
  9. OK - you have me totally lost. Following is the first few lines of the email that I receive: SpamCop.net Here are the results of your submission: Processing spam: From: wgjptw[at]yahoo.com Subject: [spam] Purchase Prescription PAIN & Diet Pills Online Here! Received: (qmail 27017 invoked from network); 4 Feb 2005 14:46:23 -0000 warning:Ignored Received: from unknown (HELO c60.cesmail.net) ( by blade6.cesmail.net with SMTP; 4 Feb 2005 14:46:23 -0000 And here is the last line: May be saved for future reference: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z728708050z4f...c840e088e126e2z Here is what I am doing: I log into webmail.spamcop.net and I look in the 'Held mail' folder. If the email is spam then I click the boxes and choose to report it. Afterwards I receive these emails tittled 'SpamCop Quick reporting data'. What am I doing wrong and who should I contact? Thanks for the feedback.
  10. Why do I receive emails titled 'SpamCop Quick reporting data'? Is there a way to turn this feature off? I am rather certain that SpamCop is doing a good job at the reporting and I don't need a detailed confirmation. Any help is appreciated.
  11. Yes you can Go to your Contacts list in Outlook. Choose File -> Import and Export. From the options choose Export to a file - > Comma Separated Values -> Contacts. Give it a file name and choose a location that you will remember. Now go into your SpamCop Webmail and choose Address Book -> Import/Export -> leave the format as Comma seperated values and the destination as Contacts -> Use the Browse button to identify the file that you exported from Outlook. Now you will see a window that asks you to pair up fields. It is not perfect but you can get last name, company name and email address paired up. I had a few errors in the import, but not many. I hope this works for you.
