return email appears from my server


Recommended Posts

Question #1:

The following headers are attached to the e-mail.

starqst[dot]com is my domain

brinkster[dot]com is my domain service provider

The originating IP address is 86[dot]137[dot]168[dot]206 in amsterdam, clearly the return to my own domain is bogus.

Will reporting this as spam in this system target the correct place (it not my own server)?

Somewhat unrelated question #2:

I have been considering the spam in my held folder adequately dealt with.

Should the spam there be reported, or simply deleted?

The only way to tell for sure is to parse the message and look at the results (full reporting only)

If it is showing your server as the source, simply cancel the reports.

Remember, nothing gets reported until you click on "send reports"

Note: Do not use Quick Reporting, or "Report as spam" from with in SpamCop WebMail as the verification step is not there and you only know what was reported after the fact.

Reporting spam sources which are already on the SCBL may help extend their time in the BL for the whole period of the spam run (depending on the "freshness" of the additional reports). Previous discussions on the point include Which spams to report (which was just the first one I found on search, YMMV).

So am I correct in assuming that using "Report spam" and "Report as spam" in the Held Mail folder in webmail will update the SCBL automatically (assuming that those emails had already been reported before)?
...That is not necessarily correct; the algorithm for adding an IP to the SCBL is more complex than that. You might get a headache reading it or you might enjoy it but the most detailed explanation available is in SpamCop FAQ (see link near top left of screen) entry labeled "What is on the list?" :) <g>
