Spamcop's "Richard" at their Support found and fixed a couple of errors in their mailhost file for me, so perhaps this discussion of headers is academic. I don't know for sure what they should look like to make other mail handlers happy. It's complicated .....

And Spamcop's support guy found and fixed the problem, which was a configuration somewhere in their system.
See that topic in their forums for details.

So on another spam-related issue entirely:

How can I get all Spanish-language email flagged as spam?
There's a whole lot of it hitting our acounts lately.

I don't see Spanish on the list of languages that SpamAssasain can customize.

Hi ankh,

I'm glad you and SC were able to get to the bottom of the mailhosts issue for reporting.

In regards to filtering Spanish, we don't support that since the character set as English and many other languages. Can you supply headers or forward to support@sonic.net? There may be other factors we can use for blocking based on what's in the headers.

> supply [Spanish spam] headers or forward to support@sonic.net?

Will do. Sent 3 so far, forwarded as attachments.

Please let the Support folks know to expect them so they don't just send me back here!

Hmmm. Google Translate thinks this spam is Italian

Scopri il rivoluzionario Clima portatile

Forwarded several more as attachments to Sonic Support.
I'll try to wait quietly.
