Nicoletta84 Posted September 21, 2011 Share Posted September 21, 2011 Wow, I have to say I did search and try to find the information on the forum before I posted this question, and I'm sorry but I just didn't really understand it in the end. So please be patient and let me try to explain. My father is receiving a lot of emails which are bounced back as failed messages from the MAILER-DAEMON at Yahoo. He has not sent the original emails to the recipient. Someone was using his email address. I'm assuming that they are genuinely being bounced by Yahoo and it is the person who originally sent them that is the spammer. My Dad uses a Mac and I don't think he has a virus (yes, I know it's possible). In the header from one of the emails I saw that it said: Received: from [iP Address A] (DadsName[at]IP Address B with plain) When I looked up IP Address B it was a Russian ISP in Novosibirsk. My questions are: 1) Does it help anyone (hopefully including my Dad) to report this information to SpamCop? 2. Do the SC rules allow me to report this kind of bounced forged email if it also reveals the real spammer (IF I am correct) 3. If yes, how and where do I report it and which parts can I include? I really did try to understand this, but I failed. Sorry and thanks for your patience! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
