Do not understand why my email was returned


Recommended Posts

I had an email returned. What I got back is at the bottom of this post. I checked what the msg listed the IP addy as and it is one of the mail servers at my ISP. I am wondering why, if your system can detect my IP addy at my machine, which it did, why did you still block me?

Apparently, you zoomed right on by the Why am I Blocked FAQ - read before posting Pinned item .. also jumping over the SpamCop FAQ entry, also Pinned and linked to at the top of the page, also tagged 'read before posting' ....

Looking at either of those, or one of the many discussions already existing within even this Forum section, one would note that first of all, SpamCop blocks nothing. Your "returned" e-mail was based on the receiving ISP choosing to use the SpamCopDNSBL for incoming spam control (based on the assumption that this ISP's configuration is correct, returning the proper data for the actual refusal decsion) ....

http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blcheck&ip= shows spamtrap hits as the primary cause for listing. Have you talked to the folks at Voyager and asked them if they are on top of the problem?

The administrators at The Iserv Co are blocking your mail by using the SCBL, contrary to SpamCop's recommendation. Your ISP Voyager.Net's mailserver mail0.mx.voyager.net [] "was found in 8 lists (of 260 tested)" (including SPAMBAG, PSBL, and DRBL) per dr. jørgen mash's DNS database list checker drbcheck. Also, your "ISP does not wish to receive reports regarding - no date available" per http://members.spamcop.net/sc?track= and http://mailsc.spamcop.net/sc?track= Report History for that mailserver is as follows:

Hi Dear

    * 1473892800 ( ) To: abuse[at]voyager.net

In addition, testing has revealed that at least one of Voyager.Net's inbound mail servers (specifically mx11.mx.voyager.net) doesn't outright reject email messages for invalid recipients using 500-series errors during the SMTP transaction, and instead accepts and then rejects them, causing blowback in the form of misdirected bounces. Such misdirected bounces are now considered abusive and reportable by SpamCop per the "Messages which may be reported" section of On what type of email should I (not) use SpamCop? and the Misdirected bounces section of Why are auto-responders (and delayed bounces) bad?.

Finally, please note that abuse[at]voyager.net has been problematic in the past, causing listing by rfc-ignorant.org (see http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/tools/lookup.p...ain=voyager.net for details).

I doubt that many will care you have a problem if your ISP doesn't care.
