Abuse contact for an IP not in our range?


Recommended Posts


One of the IP addresses involved in the problem we are having is This IP address appears to be an open relay/proxy that is used to send out large quantities of spam.

However, this IP address is not owned, announced or even routed by us. Yet, many of our e-mail addresses are listed as contacts for Spamcop for IP addresses that we do not even have a control over.

We have contacted the Spamcop staff by replying to one of their e-mails but we haven't gotten any feedback.

We are currently being spammed by the Spamcop automated reporting system :/

Anyone has any ideas?

If you simply replied to the report, you replied to the reporter, not the spamcop staff. Reporters often don't reply to answers fearing to reveal their email address to a spammer or simply don't know what to do with it since responses are so few and far between. To reach paid staff use deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net

The parser got the abuse address techireland.ca from the whois records below.

If you go to abuse.net, the following are the abuse addresses listed for techireland.ca

postmaster[at]techireland.ca (for techireland.ca)

admin[at]techireland.ca (for techireland.ca)

abuse[at]privatedns.com (for techireland.ca)

support[at]privatedns.com (for techireland.ca)

abuse[at]iweb.ca (for techireland.ca)

abuse-report[at]iweb.ca (for techireland.ca)

I don't know why iweb is listed there.
