jfaughnan Posted November 29, 2008 Share Posted November 29, 2008 I've had a paid spamcop webmail account (jfaughnan[at]spamcop.net) for many years. For the past two years it's been redirected to my gmail account. For several weeks I've been getting spam that claims to be originating from my spamcop account. That account has a fairly strong password and I presume it hasn't been hacked. The problem is that since the email is coming from my spamcop account, and that account redirects non-spam email, it's messing up gmail's spam filtering algorithms. It's "poisoning" those filters, in fact the confirmation email from this forum was treated by gmail as spam. I've included the mail header below. Note the return path of "jev[at]spamcop.net". My questions are: 1. Is there any way to deal with the "poisoning" gmail spam filter problem? 2. Do I need to stop redirecting from spamcop (practically speaking this would mean discontinuing my piad spamcop account). 3. Is there any chance my spamcop account really has been hacked? Thanks!
