Reporting service can't find reporting address


Recommended Posts

Getting a lot of spam from IP, which resolves to live-servers.net. The reporting service says it can't find any contact addresses that don't bounce - why doesn't it just look up who owns the IP (fasthosts.co.uk) and report to them?

No valid email addresses found, sorry!

There are several possible reasons for this:

The site involved may not want reports from SpamCop.

SpamCop administrators may have decided to stop sending reports to the site to prevent listwashing.

SpamCop uses internal routeing to contact this site, only knows about the internal method and so cannot provide an externally-valid email address.

There may be no working email address to receive reports.

Compare the output of whois -h whois.ripe.net ...

as compared to the statement/release/etc. as noted in the entry at http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=4082 .. where is the "abuse" address? Where is "any" address?

You could take it up with RIPE, maybe even try ICANN, follow the guidance/suggestion found at http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...indpost&p=30019 or complain manually (see Glossary, also linked to from the Forum FAQ here)
