eric Posted August 14, 2004 Share Posted August 14, 2004 I just received this email purporting to be from SpamCop. If it's real, it's troubling. If it's not real, it's a very good spoof, which is also troubling. There's no mention of this in the newsgroups or in the forums, nor on the announcements web page(s). I'm purposely not posting the headers, if this is really from SpamCop management they'll recognize it and authenticate it. If it's a spoof, I'll make the headers available, but they all point to real SC IPAs. The timing might make the paranoid think it is connected with the crash and service outage for SC email filtering/webmail. (But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean you can't stumble across a coincidence now and again...)
