MyNameHere Posted June 17, 2012 Share Posted June 17, 2012 It looks like someone is sending spam using gmail but spoofing my SpamCop address. The bounces are being sent by gmail, but when I look at the headers of the "bounced" message, I see this line: Received: from h216-45-119-187.dynamic.matriksdata.com (HELO [192.168.1.188]) (myaccount[at]spamcop.net[at]184.108.40.206) by frontend9.matriksdata.com with SMTP (f3fb9070-6e17-11e1-8f08-001143d827f1); Sat, 16 Jun 2012 09:48:08 -0500 Note that the 216... IP is a Canadian address and 192... is a special reserved private address block: Addresses from this block can be used by anyone without any need to coordinate with IANA or an Internet registry. Addresses from this block are used in multiple, separately operated networks. Is it reasonable for me to assume that I have nothing to do with these emails and that a spammer is spoofing my address? Is there any point in reporting these bounces to anyone (gmail, for example)? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
