Port 587 is now blocked on vmx.spamcop.net?


Recommended Posts

For the last week or two, SpamAssassin is no longer able to report (manually via spamassasin -r) my spams.

I finally took the time to track it down today, and the problem is that spamassassin uses port 587 to communicate with spamcop, and that apparently stopped working.

>telnet vmx.spamcop.net 25
Connected to vmx.spamcop.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 vmx.spamcop.net ESMTP
221 vmx.spamcop.net
Connection closed by foreign host.
>telnet vmx.spamcop.net 587
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

I've "fixed" it by editing /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/Spamcop.pm and changing the port from 587 to 25, but presumably 587 should be an acceptable place to submit spam reports?
