Farelf Posted April 6, 2009 Share Posted April 6, 2009 From http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=10241 (O/P brantgurga) Added emphasis. Based on the above data, results, and additional explanations, this does not appear to be a MailHost Configuration issue. Moving this to the Reporting Help Forum section .... awaiting a reply from some of those folks using the same e-mail client and/for e-mail submittals .... As a result of a fairly lengthy and intense investigation of Outlook 2003 and 2007: Outlook does *not* include full and accurate headers when you forward spams as attachments. It reorders the Received headers, which makes them untrustworthy, as well as deleting/not forwarding other headers including X-headers, which is of less importance but which may loose some valuable information needed by ISPs/hosting companies. The result of the 'scrambled" or reordered Received headers means that SpamCop does not reliably know where the injection point of the spam is. Outlook is reordering the headers, not SpamCop. Thusly, if you are running Outlook you *may not* forward your spams as an attachment for processing. You can copy/paste or look into running mailwasher or some other 3rd party add-in/add-on but you must stop forwarding as an attachment. I want to thank the SC users who cheerfully gave of their time ito help in tracking this down. Ellen SpamCop wazoo/mods -- if you would propagate this info to the wiki or other areas as necessary it would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
