  1. So there could not possibly be any other servers / IP's that could be involved / being scanned that aren’t mentioned here in the header? sorry but im just trying in eliminate any other possibilities
  2. Yes thats right, the messages picked up werent spam Another question, i understand that when the message is scanned, it scans all of the IP's of all of the servers that the message has passed through on its travels, is this correct? I am pretty sure this is what GFI does. and if so how do i find out what all of those IP's are, because if i look at the header information of the message then i will only get one IP the check to see if it is black listed. is there anyway to see more information about the message, because it is my uderstading that the software scans more of the message the I can see. Does this sound familar to anyone? Thanks
  3. I Think maybe i have spoken too soon In the first hour it only caught up one or 2 emails that were genuine, but in the second our i caught 7 emails that were spam, and 31 that were genuine mail
  4. Hello I was wondering if anyone would be able to point me in the right direction What im looking for is a website / program that can tall me all words that contain a word, for example if i types in pic it would bring up all the words that contain pic, like topics, pictures etc etc. I was just wondering if anyone knows of something to use here Thanks
  5. I Think Your definitely on to something there, I unsubscribe to spamcop, then restarted my SMTP service, then re added spamcop and this seems to have made a huge difference in the amount of messages being tagged as spam. There is still a couple of funny thins there, such as one message said it was tagged as being listed on spamhaus, yet im not subscribed to that server, but im definitely thinking that this area is the source of the problem Thank you
  6. There isn’t really a way to expand the error message that would specify a specific address that could be causing the problem or anything along those line, its a quite simple process for adding a block list to sub scribe to, its basically just a process of ticking a tick box to check weather the sending mail server is on a DNS black list, and then choosing which DNSBL server list to look at. Once this is chosen you can chose what to do with the message after if it as been stamped as spam, to delete it FW'd it, tag it etc. and I’ve just chosen to tag the message. There isn’t really any other options to describe why the message was tagged as spam. I thought maybe there could be the possibility that I could have an old copy of the BL or something like that, so I’ve tried using different BL's, like sbl.spamhaus.net, and i've had exactly the same problem, so now im even more confused, im starting to think that maybe the GFI software may need to be reinstalled, because it seems to be malfunctioning in some way from what i can see
  7. Is there any other way that this message could have been bocked by spamcop.net other than those IP's being listed at the time of the message?
  8. Here is the header of a message that was quarantined, the reason for quarantine was because the sender was found in bl.spamcop.net Is this any help in diagnosing the problem?

  9. The strange thing is that all the messages that seem to be betting tagged are coming from different mail servers. is there anyway that there could be something else that is causing these messages to be tagged? I have gone through a large number of the headers of the messages and checked the address of the sending server, and then checked the ip address in the block checker on the spamcop webpage and none of the addresses come up as listed addresses. i have tried subscribing to a different "black list" and continue to get the same problem, does this mean that it could be a problem with our domin name? apesma.asn.au Cheers
  10. Hello We are subscribing to the “bl.spamcop.net” “block list” to tag our spam, and since Monday the 19th, “bl.spamcop.net” seems to be tagging an extremely high amount of email that isn’t spam. on the average, id say 75% of email that is being tagged is genuine mail, and only about 25% of mail is actual spam. This seems to be an overnight increase, as the day before this we were having no problems. We are using GFI mail essentials Can anyone help here, imp sure it will be something simple, but I cant see anything Cheers
