Partial Header Info


Recommended Posts

I just got a couple spam e-mails with the following content (see below). The problem is that when I view by raw source there is not much header information in order for SpamCop to generate a report to send. Should I assume that this is a type of e-mail that cannot be properly reported by SpamCop or is there some tool/process that can pull out more information from such a short header?

I assume you've seen (and followed) the instructions at http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/19.html for revealing the full, unmodified e-mail message.

With regard to tracking URLs, read this Wiki page.

I also assume that you are an AOL user (or, at any rate, the recipient of the message is an AOL user).

The header you have quoted contains no "Received" lines, so SpamCop cannot do much with it. Possibly you may have left these lines out inadvertently, or perhaps AOL does not put them into messages that are sent and received entirely within the AOL domain (as Steven suggests). If the latter, then you need to take the matter up with AOL as Steven recommends.
