cameron Posted May 25, 2005 Share Posted May 25, 2005 Greetings... My mail server adds information after running emails through spam filters that describe the outcome. Should I remove this information from the header(and occasionally body) before submitting? I would think so, but I just wanted to be sure. For example, see the bolded text in the spam message below: Received-SPF: none (No spf record for (modomail.com) ) client-ip=126.96.36.199; envelope-from=<David.Grubbs[at]modomail.com>; Received: from 188.8.131.52.ptr.us.xo.net (unverified [184.108.40.206]) by XXXXXX for multiple; Wed, 25 May 2005 11:45:18 -0500 Return-Path: <David.Grubbs[at]modomail.com> Return-Path: <MatthewRandle[at]doramail.com> Received: from mypersonalemail-fe3.mypersonalemail.com (mail.mypersonalemail-fe3 [220.127.116.11]) by be3 (Cyrus v2.2.10) with LMTPA; Thu, 26 May 2005 11:38:11 -0600 X-Sieve: CMU Sieve 2.2 Received: from netster.com (bay10-f23.bay10.netster.com [18.104.22.168]) by burton-fe3.burton.com (8.12.11/8.12.11) with ESMTP id j4BM34K2003669 for XXXXXXXX; Thu, 26 May 2005 14:35:11 -0300 Received: from mail pickup service by doramail.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC; Thu, 26 May 2005 20:32:11 +0300 Message-ID: <BAY10-F236A1BA650DC2A5994D6D0B0400[at]phx.gbl> Received: from 22.214.171.124 by by10fd.bay10.doramail.com with HTTP; Thu, 26 May 2005 10:38:11 -0700 X-Originating-IP: [126.96.36.199] X-Originating-Email: [MatthewRandle[at]doramail.com] X-Sender: MatthewRandle[at]doramail.com From: "Matthew" <MatthewRandle[at]doramail.com> To: XXXXXXXX Subject: Suspected spam: Link Code inside Date: Thu, 26 May 2005 16:32:11 -0100 Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed X-OriginalArrivalTime: Thu, 26 May 2005 11:33:11 -0600 (UTC) FILETIME=[8626B350:01C55675] X-Server: High Performance Mail Server - http://surgemail.com X-ORBS-Stamp: IP Address found in Spamcop, see http://spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblock&ip=188.8.131.52 X-Rcpt-To: XXXXXXXX X-Rcpt-Original: XXXXXXXX X-SpamDetect-Info: This message may be spam see http://www.smitespam.com for more information X-SpamDetect: *****: 5.000000 Repeat Spammer=2.0,Sender's IP was on Spamcop RBL=3.0 X-IP-stats: No info recorded yet X-External-IP: 184.108.40.206 Status: U XXXXXXXX X-SpamDetect-Info: ------------- Start SmiteSpam results --------------- X-SpamDetect-Info: This message may be spam.

And, as my mail server is reporting that this IP is already in SpamCop, I wouldn't report it... but my question is just should I remove the bolded stuff before submitting to give SpamCop the ability to parse the original untainted message. My gut reaction is yes, just wanted to check here... Thanks! Cameron Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
