Spamcop spam reporting form asks to submit entire email. "Paste entire spam (headers, blank line, body) ". Is it ok to submit doctored email rfc822 source with some header information removed? Maybe user does not want to disclose X-spam or SPF data to people, who get spamcop reports.

No, the requirement is that you submit the whole Email as received. In particular you must not doctor headers or links inside the body of the message.

Hi, dzekas,

...To clarify Andrew's reply, he is referring to reports sent by SpamCop on your behalf in the course of the normal parsing and reporting process. IMHO, you are welcome to use the information returned in SpamCop's parse results as a base for your own report, provided you remove any references to SpamCop.

...FYI, the requirements referred to by Andrew may be found here. Please pay careful attention to the "update"s because, at least in my opinion, they significantly alter the meaning of the term "material" in the phrase "[d]o not make any material changes to spam...." Penalties for violation are described here.
