51.120.93.44 - "Using rdns to route to correct Microsoft department" but reports go to the spammer


Recommended Posts

'51.120.0.0 - 51.120.255.255' is Microsoft but Spamcop reports 51.120.93.44 directly to the spammer. I've seen similar misreporting for other Microsoft-hosted spammers.

Often now SpamCop has a legacy problem where a IP has been hard coded to override the abuse address.
assistaemcasa.org seems now a dead domain

That is a good question. I would almost expect abuse@microsoft.com to be on the list as well in addition to the administrator's abuse address. I think this might be microsoft's cloud and it is going to the server admin, which may or may not be the spammer.
