csouter Posted September 15, 2006 Share Posted September 15, 2006 Hello everyone, I have several email accounts, all of which are correctly configured and have been working correctly for SpamCop reporting for almost a year now. One of these accounts is with Gmail, which has also been working correctly, (as far as SpamCop reporting is concerned). The only problem I encountered with Gmail originally was that I have to report by the "paste-into-the-box" method: simple forwarding doesn't seem to work. Once I worked that out, it has been working OK for the last several months, except in this one single instance which occurred only today. I received the following error from SpamCop when I tried reporting the message referred to below: Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts Will not trust anything beyond this header No source IP address found, cannot proceed. Thinking that my mailhost configuration had somehow gotten messed up, I deleted the Gmail host and then added it back. I received five test messages, all of which were successful. I then submitted (via the "paste-into-the-box" method) two spams I had just received in my Gmail "spam" folder. Both reports went through OK. I then tried the message referred to below once again. The same error was returned again. The Tracking URL from the last filed reporting attempt is as follows: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1065998506zd...843e1c924c0eabz Now, I'm no expert on the internet email system, (or anything else to do with computers, for that matter), so I can't see what's wrong with the headers in the offending message. If anyone else would care to take a look at the tracking URL, I would appreciate it if they could maybe let me know what the problem is. I particularly wanted to report this message because it is a "pump-and-dump" stock spam. I have already forwarded it to KnujOn, but I think that the originating ISP should know about it as well. (I always do this "double-barrelled" reporting - SpamCop for the originator and KnujOn for the URLs and the stock junk). Also, I would like to mention that I opened the Gmail account last February, and this spam message is the first that has ever gotten past Gmail's spam filters and found its way into my Inbox, (rather than the spam folder, that is). (For that matter, Gmail has never given me a false positive, either. Legitimate emails have never gone to my spam folder). It's just a little frustrating when everything has worked OK for me for almost a year now. What worries me the most is that the spammers may have found some way around SpamCop's parsing engine, or, at least, one particular spammer has managed it. Anyway, if someone here could take the time to look at the URL referred to above and maybe shed a little light on the problem, I, for one, would be very much obliged to you. Thanks in advance for your help. Best regards to all Chris Souter (Sydney, Australia) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
