Mail forwarding broken?


Recommended Posts

Messages to my spamcop.net address are not being delivered to my gmail.com account.  I've tried sending emails from other systems to the spamcop.net address, but nothing gets through, no bounce errors, etc.

When attempting to validate spamcop via mailhosts, it attempts to send the verification email to vmx5.spamcop.net, which times out.

Attempting to access the webmail client to check forwarding via these instructions (https://www.spamcop.net/ces/setup_forwarding2.shtml) fails with a ERR_NOT_RESOLVED in Chrome.

Attempting to use the help form at https://www.spamcop.net/ces/contact.shtml fails, because the form submits to mail.spamcop.net, which isn't resolving in DNS.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?

How do you configure the forwarding for your spamcop.net email address?  The link on the page I quoted says to login at http://webmail.spamcop.net/, which fails.  When I try various ways to do a DNS lookup, I don't get any results.  I do get one for vmx5.spamcop.net (and I can ping it), but both webmail.spamcop.net and mail.spamcop.net fail to resolved with A or CNAME records.

Send a web form message, never touched mine. But been using it since last millennium 
Suggest check your forwarding email is correct

Otherwise you will need to contact support deputy[AT] or is it Deputies?

I don't use the CES email forwarding either.

I use deputies[at]admin[dot]spamcop[dot]net to get a deputy.

More tests reveal the following:

  1. Forwarding is actually working.  Sending from another gmail account or yahoo account gets through.
  2. Sending from the account that it points to doesn't get through.  Is this known behavior to prevent loops?
  3. The thing I was trying in the first place (get a password reset email from a company) still doesn't get through, so it's most likely something at their end.

So, it doesn't seem to be a spamcop problem, although the inability to submit help requests or access the configuration for forwarding is still an issue.

Looks like both domains are gone as I get a nxdomain response to the look ups.

I heard back from deputies[at]admin[dot]spamcop[dot]net.  They confirmed that those old hosts are just gone, and that no one has gone back to clean up the old pages (yet).  Also, the place to check/change your forwarding is in the SpamCop reporting account, under Preferences, change Email address or name.

That will probably take a while as there are a lot of pages out there.  I think some of the volunteers use to fix the pages before they died.

Seemed to die when the SpamCop private "UserNet" went to web "usernet"

Also spam is now handled a lot better if you use Cisco email servers you rarely see it.
