DavidT Posted September 7, 2004 Share Posted September 7, 2004 I've been putting off setting up Mailhosts because I have so many different sources of email forwared into my Spamcop account. Up to today, this hasn't been a problem, resulting in less than a handful of reports going to my own email hosts out of thousands of reported spams. However, I just now submitted my "overnight spam" for Quick Reporting (after first scanning through it and making sure it was all spam) and when I took at look at the "SpamCop Quick Reporting data" email to see where the reports went, I found that 34 reports had been sent to my primary email host. OK, so I guess I'll check out setting up Mailhosts, but I'm left wondering why the parser suddenly changed its behavior today, so I'll provide some tracking URLs below in case anyone can shed some light (my host is Jumpline.com, which was not the actual source of any of the messages). http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z646918105z38...1876ba8726c4f6z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z646918081zd2...a7ba44af923a71z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z646917990zfc...7ec50c11a9b6bcz http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z646917755z9f...dc08ae05640101z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z646917719z9d...90d7e4718cc2cfz As you look at any of those parsing reports, you'll see entries like this: Reports regarding this spam have already been sent: Re: 126.96.36.199 (Administrator of network where email originates) Reportid: 1216829622 To: abuse[at]jumpline.com However, in that same report, you'll also see: Tracking message source: 188.8.131.52 and If reported today, reports would be sent to: Re: 184.108.40.206 (Administrator of network where email originates) abuse[at]kornet.net So, the parser seems to know that the email originated in Korea, and yet a report was sent to my email host, which was obviously only an intermediary. Sure, I can fix this with Mailhosts, but I shouldn't have to...the parser is goofing up. Thanks, DT Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
