getting spam to my secret reporting adress


Recommended Posts

spam seems to be sent to my secret reporting address (submit.<verysecretcode>[at]spam.spamcop.net)

(it startet about 3 weeks ago, reasons unknown. But I found a worm on a computer where this address was stored, might have escaped there...)

Now I get AutoResponder-Error messages:

SpamCop encountered errors while saving spam for processing:

SpamCop could not find your spam message in this email:

with detailed information

the email which triggered this auto-response had the following headers:...

Am I allowed to report the original messages? (I have header and body of the message. The secret reporting address is mine, therefore its my spam...)

Actually reporting is not possible as

Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts

Could I add spam.spamcop.net to my mailhosts? (In order to report those messages)

Technically I think it would be possible as the mailhost-configuration would also trigger an error message with all needed informations.

Anyone already done this or any Admin's oppinion?


(It would also help if I could just switch off the AutoResponder. I usually report from webmail or with copy/paste. I don't need the secret reporting address often...)

This has arisen again in the newsgroups - asking for a new submit address is indeed the solution and the correct contact would be Don - SpamCop Admin - service[at]admin.spamcop.net

Just to clearly connect the problem/symptom and the solution on these pages.
