fliptop Posted November 17, 2004 Share Posted November 17, 2004 hi list - for some time now i've noticed that when i report a spam from hotmail, the abuse address is not included in the report, even though the parser correctly finds it. here's some headers of an example: Return-Path: <melanie_stoppe[at]westlotto.org> Received: from hotmail.com (bay23-f17.bay23.hotmail.com [22.214.171.124]) by xx.xx.xx (8.11.6/8.11.6) with ESMTP id iAHA4vP07518 for <x>; Wed, 17 Nov 2004 05:04:58 -0500 Received: from mail pickup service by hotmail.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC; Wed, 17 Nov 2004 02:05:02 -0800 Received: from 126.96.36.199 by by23fd.bay23.hotmail.msn.com with HTTP; Wed, 17 Nov 2004 10:04:45 GMT X-Originating-IP: [188.8.131.52] X-Originating-Email: [melanie_stoppe[at]westlotto.org] X-Sender: melanie_stoppe[at]westlotto.org From: "melanie stoppe" <melanie_stoppe[at]westlotto.org> Bcc: Subject: Congratulations!!! we rejoice with you...
