SpamCop Header Parsing

Recommended Posts

I am working to create a ticketing system for an ISP, I've developed scripts that take out the important information that come in from SpamCop and other reporters, but I'm having a problem parsing emails coming from the Everyday Joe Shmoe that is emailing in a complaint on their own. They will include the header, so I can see all the recieved lines, but we know that some recieved lines are fake...which leads me to my question:

Is the algorithm that SpamCop uses to parse the header of an email freely avaiable?

My instincts tell me that it isn't available b/c smart spammer could possibly find ways to work around the SpamCop system, but maybe I'm wrong.

Hi, crazypheel,

...If I understand your question about the availability of the SpamCop code to parse spam, the answer is here.

...To distinguish reports from SpamCop as opposed to others, can't you use the latest "Received: from" internet header that shows the last IP address through which the report was routed before it came in to your ISP's network?
