Why is am I listed in spamcop and no other relay D

Recommended Posts

If you have read the FAQ, then the best guess is that you are sending auto responses to viruses or have a recently infected machine on your network.

If the bl look up says "sent to spam traps' then that makes the above guess almost certain.

Spamcop does not list open relays.

Someone who has more knowledge will probably post soon, but if you have any kind of auto responder or are sending email 'bounces' instead of rejecting at the server, stop doing that.

Look at your firewall logs as well as outgoing mail logs. Read the SMTP/Auth Exploit pinned FAQ.

If you do the above things, you may have it fixed before someone responds.

Could be the A/v virus response to sender.. interesting.. a duet between a/v systems and spam detection ;)

well none-the-less the symantec virus responder's been disabled and hopefully email to affected spamcop blocked clients restored..

Thanks for all the help..

The Faq's were helpful,but, a long long read..read..

This forum, however, rocks..

The bl data from http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblo... states: listed in bl.spamcop.net (

Causes of listing

System has sent mail to SpamCop spam traps in the past week (spam traps are secret, no reports or evidence are provided by SpamCop)

SpamCop users have reported system as a source of spam less than 10 times in the past week

Additional potential problems

(these factors do not directly result in spamcop listing)

DNS error: has no reverse dns

Listing History

In the past 482.9 days, it has been listed 2 times for a total of 6.8 days

Other hosts in this "neighborhood" with spam reports

The spamtrap messages can be viewed by the deputies and they can possibly tell you something from looking at them. Email them ad deputies<at>spamcop.net

The reports would have been sent to:

Parsing input:

host (getting name) no name

host (getting name) no name

Reporting addresses:
