Telarin Posted October 23, 2006 Share Posted October 23, 2006 Thought you might all find this interesting. I actually got a response to a spamcop report that was submitted to abuse[at]bluehost.com. The text of the response was a single line: Complying with RFC822 To which I sent my own response: Compliance with an RFC is not in question. You are sending unsolicited mail to our server. Bouncing emails after acceptance is no longer considered e-mail best practice as most spam messages use forged "FROM" addresses, therefore any bounces sent to these addresses is unsolicited. Emails should be rejected with a 500 series error during SMTP to prevent this from happening. Has anyone else gotten a response along these lines from any ISPs? If so, what was your response? Since spam doesn't violate any RFCs as far as I know, I fail to see how compliance with RFC822 has anything to do with a spam report. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
