(I'm a bit lost with the forum organization, so I'm not sure if this is the correct place for asking these questions. My apologies if I have done it wrong)

I'm trying to educate myself about the mechanics of the spam reporting process, and today I have been puzzled by this spam (I have changed the "Delivered-To" part, replacing my real address by "me"):

http://oi61.tinypic.com/sgtt1t.jpg

My real Spamcop address is of the type "me[at]spamcop.net" and I never use it to send email, because it only serves as recipient of addresses "me[at]mydomain.com" that are forwarded to "me[at]spamcop.net".

Looking at the spam headers, I see that it is addressed to "tangent[at]spamcop.net", and that the email system have delivered it to "spamcop-net-me[at]spamcop.net".

My question is: None of these addresses (tangent and spamcop-net-me) are mine, so, how is that the spam have end handed to "me[at]spamcop.net"?

If someone of you can enlighten me about this small "mystery" I would be grateful to him/her (and I will end the day a bit less ignorant).

This is the link to the spam tracking URL: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5929781322zc...4b5323548818c5z

Thanks and Regards,

Javier.-

Should not of reached your inbox, check your blacklist filters?

Tacking URL is enough and best SpamCop is using "abuse.net" which gives wrong (default) abuse address

You need to go to your trash folder and forward as attachment to BOTH spam[at]uce.gov and fromarin[at]athenet.net in your forwarded message in it's body put:

Hi, Javier,

...Thanks for that last post! :) <g> I shall assume from it that you are satisfied with the replies to your initial question and am therefore flagging this Topic as "Resolved." If that is incorrect, it's easy for me (or another member who has Forum Moderator powers) to reverse....
