GeoffL Posted March 24, 2009 Share Posted March 24, 2009 (Note to mods: it might be worthwhile moving this to the "mailhosts" forum) Sorry if this has been covered before. I did try to search but the board search engine <fe>helpfully</fe> refused my query on the grounds that one or all of my key words were below four characters. I did try to quote the phrase, but to no avail - and "no" and "IP" are crucial to my query! Spamcop has been unable to process the last half dozen or so pieces of spam that have made it through to my inbox because "No source IP address found, cannot proceed." the latest that I've tried to report was: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z2725673310zf...baee80b8363388z Has Spammy found a way to neutralize Spamcop, or is the lack of IP address something to do with my SMTP server? Edited to add: While mooching around the main Spamcop site, I noticed something about mailhosts. Checking that forum reveals that this is a common problem where a user's MX records have changed, which mine have. However, the instructions for configuring mailhosts are confusing for me since my setup has the following characteristics: 7 domains, each of which has the same inbound SMTP servers but with the first priority aliased to mail[at]domain. I'm using wildcarded addresses. For example, I give a unique address to each vendor who asks for my email address. These all start with a particular string and I've configured my server to accept mail addressed to any username that starts with that string except those that I've blacklisted. From the above, I have an infinite number of email addresses - and the instructions say that I must configure mailhosts for each email address that might receive spam So, do I just need to configure mailhosts for one address, one address per domain, or all possible addresses?
