klappa Posted November 11, 2018 Share Posted November 11, 2018 (edited) I have two different e-mails one is Outlook the other one is Gmail. Every time i get a spam on my Outlook e-mail it in almost all cases reports directly to email@example.com. However sometimes i get the same spam on my Gmail e-mail (the spammer supposedly have both of my e-mail addresses.). But the Gmail one reports to the correct spam contacts wherever the Outlook always reports to the hotmail abuse address which it shouldn't do except the spammer send me spam from one using one of Microsofts services? Only in a few instances does Spamcop report to the right abuse contacts when using Outlook, i have no idea why it works in those cases but oh well. Why does it do this? If i recollect rightly this haven't always been the case and it always used to send to the correct instances or abuse contacts. Here's two Spamcop reports, first one from Outlook and the other one from the Gmail e-mail. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6499645284z69efc272a2d2f2b47876f5ca99aa42ddz https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6499643222z25c6ac08119c343450665e089fa8cf61z Since Gmail doesn't work with Spamcop without breaking i had to convert the 6to4 address to an ipv4-address. It's a bad joke which Spamcop haven't correted for years now but i leave that for another time. It just shows that it is meaningless to report spam using Outlook since Spamcop can't handle them properly. At least Outlook is using a proper IPV6 address than a 6to4 private address like Gmail does but it doesn't help Spamcop parsing them properly to the right abuse contacts using Outlook either way. Something is broken. Edited November 11, 2018 by klappa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
