k9axux00vgy6vfk001 Posted November 1, 2007 Share Posted November 1, 2007 I've only noticed this happening once, but in the processing of the spam, SpamCop is saying that it's not able to resolve a hostname, but a separate DNS query I did is able to determine this. I just want to make sure that the spammer isn't taking advantage of some kind of (temporary) DNS shortcoming to avoid that domain name being included in the report. I receive the error: Recurse multipart: Parsing text part Parsing HTML part Resolving link obfuscation http://avynaturalzz.com/ Host avynaturalzz.com (checking ip) IP not found ; avynaturalzz.com discarded as fake. Tracking link: http://avynaturalzz.com/ [report history] Cannot resolve http://avynaturalzz.com/ And further details are at: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1506027037zf...cd82726e0ee2a6z User-targeted report, see notes, if any. http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?i=z2593645221z7...37de8725b9b646z Now that I check that out, I see that the DNS entry since five minutes ago has been resolved, and new information appears. I'm guessing that's normal. But, I don't know if the spam report is actually sent to the correct place in the end, since the correct DNS lookup happened at the time after I clicked to send the spam reports. I see that the whois information is: Domain Name: AVYNATURALZZ.COM Registrar: TODAYNIC.COM, INC. Whois Server: whois.todaynic.com Referral URL: http://www.NOW.CN Name Server: NS1.NJCVHEALTHOK.COM Name Server: NS2.NJCVHEALTHOK.COM Status: clientTransferProhibited Updated Date: 21-oct-2007 Creation Date: 21-oct-2007 Expiration Date: 21-oct-2008 So I don't know if there is a window of possibility for the spammer where they can avoid the spam report being sent if DNS lookup is delayed for some reason. I hope that this is clear. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
