Parser says:

error: couldn't parse head

Message body parser requires full, accurate copy of message

I know I've copied the full headers, can someone take a look at it, I don't read mime headers very well. :)

My guess is that the spammer intentionally mis-formatted it, but I can't tell.

Yeah, slightly misconfigured - http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z902046763za9...db212cd3592672z shows how it would be if written properly. Makes no difference to your reporting, I would say incompetence (no matter which way you cut it).

You're welcome. Could be a "trick", who knows? But in the context of the SC parser it achieves nothing. More likely this particular spam "author" just got it a tad wrong. Important things:

  • there was nothing wrong with your processing of the spam
  • the parsing error occurred after the parser had done its thing

For the record, the difference causing the hiccough is

(fragment)

X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2900.2180

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

------=_NextPart_000_0001_01C64B51.5C52C400

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

        boundary="----=_NextPart_001_000E_01C64B51.5C52C400"

should be
(same fragment)

X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2900.2180

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

----=_NextPart_000_0001_01C64B51.5C52C400

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

        boundary="----=_NextPart_001_000E_01C64B51.5C52C400"

(Or maybe that's vice versa ;). Pretty subtle, eh? Edited by Farelf

... It took me 3 times looking it over to figure out the difference.

Yeah, I guess I should have used quotes instead of code, could have highlighted it then. One learns ... unfortunately one forgets at a similar rate :) Keeps the head from exploding, I guess.
