  1. A strange thing happened to me yesterday, and I'm not sure if I should be concerned. About 6 e-mails from the 12th and 13 of Sept. 2006 appeared in my inbox. These are messages that I remember receiving. On the Webmail they end up at the bottom of my list of e-mails, but Outlook put them on top so I noticed them. I just wonder how this could happen and if it is a sign of a significant problem. Here is the header from one of them (with some stuff anonymized, SENDER = Sender's e-mail, MYEMAIL is my username): Return-Path: <SENDER[at]ts.jgh.mcgill.ca> Delivered-To: spamcop-net-MYEMAIL[at]spamcop.net Received: (qmail 15334 invoked from network); 5 May 2008 22:04:19 -0000 X-spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.2.4 (2008-01-01) on filter8 X-spam-Level: X-spam-Status: hits=0.0 tests=none version=3.2.4 Received: from unknown ( by filter8.cesmail.net with QMQP; 5 May 2008 22:04:19 -0000 Received: from devfw1.messagingarchitects.com (HELO node3.site) ( by mx70.cesmail.net with SMTP; 5 May 2008 22:04:19 -0000 Received: from mojo.vdn.ca (localhost []) by node3.site (Postfix) with ESMTP id 5D200A320621; Mon, 5 May 2008 19:23:48 -0400 (EDT) Received: from bc-node1.vdn.ca ([] helo=bc-node0.vdn.ca) by mojo.vdn.ca with esmtp (Exim 4.34) id 1GNAWh-000B1g-TD for MYEMAIL[at]vdn.ca; Tue, 12 Sep 2006 11:50:19 -0400 Received: from drizzle.cc.mcgill.ca (drizzle.cc.mcgill.ca []) by bc-node0.vdn.ca (spam Firewall) with ESMTP id A64B8397A3E for <MYEMAIL[at]vdn.ca>; Tue, 12 Sep 2006 11:50:18 -0400 (EDT) Received: from mailscan2.cc.mcgill.ca (mailscan2.CC.McGill.CA []) by drizzle.cc.mcgill.ca (8.12.11/8.12.3) with ESMTP id k8CFoGeV024040 for <MYEMAIL[at]vdn.ca>; Tue, 12 Sep 2006 11:50:18 -0400 Received: from ch06gjuif00003.intranet.jgh (dalet2.JGH.McGill.CA []) by mailscan2.cc.mcgill.ca (8.13.6/8.13.0) with ESMTP id k8CFnj7Z004705 for <MYEMAIL[at]vdn.ca>; Tue, 12 Sep 2006 11:49:45 -0400 (EDT) Subject: RE: To: <MYEMAIL[at]vdn.ca> X-Mailer: Lotus Notes Release 5.0.9 November 16, 2001 Message-ID: <OF61B9F286.0BD1B150-ON852571E7.004C973F[at]jgh.mcgill.ca> From: SENDER[at]ts.jgh.mcgill.ca Date: Tue, 12 Sep 2006 11:52:28 -0400 X-MIMETrack: Serialize by Router on ch06gjuif00003/jgh(Release 6.5.4FP2|September 12, 2005) at 09/12/2006 11:52:34 AM MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-transfer-encoding: quoted-printable X-Virus-Scanned: by Barracuda spam Firewall at vdn.ca X-SpamCop-Checked: X-SpamCop-Whitelisted: mcgill.ca
  2. Tried that - same thing. It is my understanding that pop.spamcop.net is preferred (I think they are planning on dropping mail.spamcop.net at some point.) Paul
  3. I'm 99% sure I've configured Outlook 2003 correctly (I'll give details below). In responses to other posts a common question is "can you Ping pop.spamcop.net" - I cannot. None of the other posts tell you what to do if this is the case. Setup: Outlook 2003 POP3 Server: pop.spamcop.net Port: 110 Username: myname[at]spamcop.net Error message received: Task 'paulwarshawsky[at]vdn.ca - Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).' If I try to ping, the address resoves to, but all the packets time-out. This has been going on for several months (I've been using Webmail) but I having a lot of trouble keeping my calender up to date (can't send entries from home to work by e-mail). Thanks in advance for the help. Paul Warshawsky
