Art101 Posted June 20, 2018 Share Posted June 20, 2018 Sorry for the long post; I'm trying to be crystal clear. I sent this to the "service[at]admin.spamcop.net" address on June 5, 2018 but never heard back from anyone. If this is covered elsewhere, please point me to an appropriate thread. I've searched the forums and can't find a clear answer. Quick backstory: I've been using SpamCop since the early days. In fact, I swapped email and design ideas for the SpamCop logo with founder Julian Haight around 1998. The logo I designed and donated is still in use by SpamCop. I'm running the latest versions of MacOS (10.13.4) and Apple Mail. In addition to one "real" email address for my design studio's domain, I have one Gmail address. The Gmail account is set up to forward incoming mail to my Mac (with IMAP)... which means Gmail also forwards spam sent to the Gmail account. Grrrr. It used to be simple to report that spam... I revealed the raw source (full headers and body), copied, and pasted into the SpamCop reporting form. Worked like a charm for years until the new Mail-host system went in to effect. When attempting to report spam from my Gmail account the system now says: Quote Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts Will not trust this Received line. Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source Mailhost: Please correct this situation - register every email address where you receive spam No source IP address found, cannot proceed. Nothing to do. I've tried unsuccessfully to correct this. I even deleted the old Gmail host configuration and followed the instructions to make a new one. I received 5 test messages from the SpamCop bot and successfully submitted them via the online form at https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=mhreturn A new Gmail host was created in the Mailhosts section of my SpamCop account. But it doesn't work. I'm getting the same "nothing to do" result when attempting to report spam. Can someone walk me through this? Please be kind: I'm not a programmer—just a designer. It's probably something simple, but the instructions are not clear to me. BTW, spam that slips through Mail filters to my "real" address inbox is easy to report and works fine on the SpamCop report page. I haven't tried forwarding spam directly to SpamCop in years. That never worked (it bounces). Sigh. Thanks in advance for any tips and help. I love reporting spam via SpamCop. Even if it's only symbolic and doesn't truly help stop the onslaught, it makes me feel a bit better. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
