Lately, Spamcop has been routinely detecting the wrong spammer - it's been detecting US as the spammer and wanting to report us to our own ISP. This is happening about 80 percent of time!! It started maybe two weeks ago. It never did it before.

Here is an example of spam that is being detected wrong:

This e-mail has been sent from an e-mail address that is not monitored. Please do not reply to this message. We are unable to respond to any replies.

When I submit this to spamcop, spamcop tries to report the spam to:

Report spam to:

Re: 24.123.149.141 (Administrator of network where email originates)

To: abuse[at]rr.com (Notes)

That is ME... it's trying to report ME...

Have the spammers figured out a way around Spamcop??? Any ideas???

Cheers.

Hi, mrwebman!

Here is an example of spam that is being detected wrong:

...Rather than post this much detail, please post the Tracking URL.
<snip>

That is ME... it's trying to report ME...

...Please see "SpamCop FAQ" (link near tops left of each SpamCop Forum page) entry labeled "Why does SpamCop want to send a report to my own network administrator?"

Two posts gigging the user for not doing his homework, but no answer to the question.
Don, I'm glad that you were able to answer the poster's question. I'm a little less glad that you found it necessary to denigrate my contribution (which did not "gig" the poster, and which actually did offer at least a possible solution to the problem, with background info).

I'll ask you for an apology here in public where the damage was done.

Thanks for the quick and accurate response. As was mentioned elsewhere also, I went through the mailhost procedure and it fixed the problem.

Again, thanks for the help! You guys are tops!!

Cheers.

...I disagree, I think the answer was given:
Please see "SpamCop FAQ" (link near tops left of each SpamCop Forum page) entry labeled "Why does SpamCop want to send a report to my own network administrator?"
and
<snip>

You're also going to want to run the mailhosts configuration process if you have not already done so.

I know that you prefer that our replies include the actual text of the solution but I personally don't agree that we need (or want) the same answer repeated in multiple places.

...Rick, thanks for also providing the solution. I didn't, but should have, taken the time to actually look at the FAQ post, and should have noticed it did not mention the "MailHosts Configuration" solution!

Suggesting that the user configure his Mailhosts is good advice, but as I have said many times before, if you're not going to answer the question, don't post.

Coming in late due to connectivity loss, then a power outage. However, exception has to be noted.

The actual problem was seen in the parser output http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z3672773088z9...4923da544933faz as;

Received: from tdev156-170.codetel.net.do (HELO speedtouch.lan) (190.80.156.170) by sw1 (qpsmtpd/0.40) with ESMTP; Sat, 22 Jan 2010 18:32:24 +0000

Possible spammer: 190.80.156.170

sw1 is not a hostname (emphasis added by me)

Looks like a forgery

As seen in looking at the Tracking URL which now has had the MailHost Configuration applied to the Reporting Account, the 'solution' to the user's issue was in fact offered up in the initial Forum replies. Granted the 'real' solution would be to have the ISP/Host fix their server, but ..... the answer was in fact posted here for public view and had a successful result.

I didn't, but should have, taken the time to actually look at the FAQ post, and should have noticed it did not mention the "MailHosts Configuration" solution!

Interesting, I suppose. The "Official/Original FAQ" entry Why does SpamCop want to send a report to my own network administrator? has not been updated to include the MailHost Configuration of your Reporting Account as a possible solution. On the other hand, I also note that a Wiki page has not been developed on the same subject matter either. Looks like additional work could be done by a number of folks.
