ndro5 Posted April 15, 2012 Share Posted April 15, 2012 Some spam that I wanted to report to SpamCop got struck in the automatic processing with the message "This email contains no date". In an email discussion with a SpamCop admin it turned out, that the Received line contains some characters which deter proper evaluation. I am using the view message source feature of thunderbird 11.0.1 for pasting the complete spam into the web-form. The issue occurs as well on a linux and a win xp installation. My email address contains an underscore (_ what is =5f in utf). Submitting works, when I edit the Received line and change =?utf-8?q?<who=5fcares[at]web.de>;?= into <who_cares[at]web.de>; Forwarding as attachment doesn't seem to make any difference. In some cases a received line has line breaks and it looks like this: Received: from [...] by mx-ha.web.de (mxweb102) with ESMTP (Nemesis) id [...] for =?utf-8?q?<who=5fcare?= =?utf-8?q?s[at]web.de>;?= Sat, 07 Apr 2012 21:23:26 +0200 This ?= before the date causes the problem. It might be an issue of my german mail provider, but for integrity of evidence SpamCop should be enabled to deal with such encodings. For reference look at this TRACKING URL: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5298353747z8...8f029fd3001a2az Regards ndro5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
