  1. I keep getting errors in my reporting. It keeps complaining that the header doesn't match my mailhost configuration, but the hostname that it complains about is listed as a valid hostname in my configuration. Example: Parsing header: 0: Received: from unknown (HELO mx3.hrnoc.net) ( by 0 with ESMTPS (DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA encrypted); 22 Mar 2009 16:32:21 -0000 Hostname verified: mx3.hrnoc.net Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts Will not trust anything beyond this header mx3.hrnoc.net is listed as valid hostname in my mailhost config. Why would spamcop refuse to process it?
  2. Yes they do come through. Also you have to realize that rr.com covers a HELL of a lot of IP space. And, as Telarin suggested, about 8 million RR subscribers. Each division has their own email subdomain. nyc.rr.com = new york city + new jersey san.rr.com = san diego california ec.rr.com = kansas city (no idea where "ec" comes from") etc. etc. Abuse tickets are assigned to and handled by each division, determined by the originating IP in the spam headers. In my division (not the largest), we get 25-75 abuse tickets a DAY. I can't fathom how many the NY City division must get.
  3. This was a recent thing, spamcop submissions started being silently filtered after they upgraded the mail system. I work in the NOC for one of the Roadrunner divisions, and opened a ticket with the mail guys when my own submissions started failing to go through. Since it was the central mail sysops that made the change, hopefully this will apply to ALL roadrunner divisions across the USA. Glad I could help!
