I am getting this message when I try reporting a spam. It always is from the same person:

No source IP address found, cannot proceed.

Can anyone suggest what the problem might be?

Here is the header from my email client:

It's probably because it's going from Gmail to Gmail, and so it using their internal server IPs, all starting with "10.etc." -- those aren't going to parse.

But, looking at what you're trying to report, it would seem just some sort of annoying messages from an annoying sender, perhaps, as opposed to the kind of "spam" that most of us would be reporting (pharma, phishing, etc.). Perhaps you could simply filter this person in your Gmail and be done with it? Or forward their messages directly to Google's abuse department?

Thanks David for taking the time to let me know the reason.

Annoying sender, yes! I dislike any spam! I will look into reporting such spam directly to gmail.

Cheers!

You're welcome. To me, not all unwanted email rises to the level of "spam," but as they say, YMMV. For example, there are several SpamCop reporters who appear to have agreed to receive email from various political entities (perhaps only implicitly, by supplying an email address on a petition and not reading the fine print), and then instead of unsubscribing, they report it as spam. I'm seeing a number of those email campaigns winding up in my "Held" folder, and when the sending IPs are on the SCBL, I sometimes take a look to see if it's due to report, spamtrap hits, or both.

This week, I've seen a server (from a source I have subscribed to) being listed on the SCBL for the last 46 hours due to a handful of reports from what appears to be only two reporters. I would prefer *not* to have the deliverability of messages from that organization reduced due to the apparently laziness of two SpamCop reporters, who should have simply unsubscribed. I think they're guilty of false reporting, and so I'm working with the company in question, providing information about this issue. My point is--lets all be careful NOT to report stuff that is NOT REALLY spam!
