The answer to your question can be found by following the link that was (I assume) contained in the reject notice you received. 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

So there have been automated (spamtrap) and manual reports of spam coming from that server. Reports for the manual complaints were sent to


you should check with him.

Please note that SpamCop is NOT a list of open relays or proxies, it is a real-time list of servers from which spam is currently spewing. Please check your server logs, you probably have a compromised machine. Senderbase shows a 1333% increase in traffic from that server in the last 24hrs.

The good news is that SpamCop is realtime and that your server will be delisted automatically within 48 hrs of the last report once the spam stops.

irrelevant. nobody believes the From: field in spam, SpamCop works on the IP address, not the alleged sender.
