[Resolved] SC wants to report my own ISP as source


Recommended Posts

I can post some headers here if the tracking URL won't give someone enough of a look at this to maybe see what's going on. The last several "pay less for your drruggs" spews have gone unreported because at the end, SC has decided my own ISP was the sender. The "discarded as forgery" IPs that I've looked up with Sam Spade have been from .nl and elsewhere in Europe.

I cancelled all the previous reports, but sent a copy of this one to myself only. (Does the tracking URL still "stick" if a report is cancelled?)

Thanks.

Perhaps you need to take a look at the Glossary entry for "Tracking URL" (found as a link in the Forum FAQ) .... A Tracking URL is good until the item ages out of the database ... unfortunately, the snippet of something you posted doesn't come close to a Tracking URL, so no, no one can look at what you're dealing with at this point. The Tracking URL is much preferred, as this application doesn't handle white-space gracefully and historically, when I "fix" headers provided 'here' I somehow manage to usually 'fix' a lot of things, such that I can't seem to replicate the 'problem' .... and in your next reply, have you ran your account through the MailHost configuration?

The Tracking URL is much preferred ....

That's what I thought, and I also didn't think the post looked quite right, but I figured the button above ("http") was a better way to go than what I'm used to (like this):

<http://www.spamcop.net/munged>

I had tried a copy-and-paste between the Open and Close URL, but obviously messed something up.

and in your next reply, have you ran your account through the MailHost configuration?

Just did that. I think doing the RTFM thing for the configuration answered my question. Also just realized that the address SC had for me was one that had to be killed off awhile back. That and the fact that I haven't had a paid account for awhile probably left me out of the loop on such things.

Stamp this one "Resolved." Thanks, Wazoo.

Maineiac, the Tracking URL for the item you were somehow pointing to turns out to have been http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z770695440z33...1897ea74665dffz

What you posted (and I munged) I'll be honest .. I've not seen before .. something titled "Abuse report response center" ... from what I saw in there, I'll jump to the conclusion that this is a paid-account perk thing? Anyway, it didn't seem like something that needed to be "out there" (OK, Jeff G. tells me that's it's a report on a URL contained within / associated wih a Tracking URL .. something new for me) .... The Tracking URL listed above came from the line "How SpamCop tracked this spam to you" link, went there and copied off the Tracking URL from that screen ....

Personally, I find the top two Received lines a bit confusing, but I see that the MailHost configuration and parsing tool worked through things just fine ...

Congrats on working it through!

Thanks.

I'll spend some time this weekend RTFMing, while I wait for the next opportunity to nuke some deserving spammer. :D
