HillsCap Posted March 8, 2004 Share Posted March 8, 2004 Hi, all. One quick question: My web host / email provider is using iMail 6.06 (an older version of IpSwitch's iMail mail server), and it does not properly report Source IPs. Instead of placing the IP address of the sender into the headers, it places ITS OWN IP address into the headers, tricking SpamCop into thinking that it is the sender of the spam. Well, that's all well and good, I've reported several hundred from this mail provider, in the hopes that them receiving these reports would make them realize that they should upgrade their mail server. So far, they refuse to... so we're moving to a new web host / mail provider. But, the real question is this: Even though there are links to web pages in these spam submissions, SpamCop does not report to the responsible parties for these websites... I was wondering why? It seems like SpamCop looks at the headers to determine if they are forged, and if they are, it looks further for links in the body of the spam message. But, if the headers look legit, it won't try to get info about the links. The headers look legit in our case because the iMail server is ancient and doesn't work the way it should. Shouldn't SpamCop always look at the links in the body of the spam message? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
