I see a few different address in my SpamCop inprogress display:

  • nomaster@devnull.spamcop.net
  • abuse#anti-spam.cn@devnull.spamcop.net
  • abuse#strato.de@devnull.spamcop.net
  • sidhom#ati.tn@devnull.spamcop.net

What do these mean? That there was no abuse e-mail for these domains? Or, that the account didn't respond? Or, that the account was not accepting of e-mail? Any information on the email domain devnull.spamcop.net would probably satisfy my curiosity.

Apparently these address are either for statistical tracking within the SpamCop system:

Using abuse#anti-spam.cn@devnull.spamcop.net for statistical tracking.

Or in the case of nomaster@devnull.spamcop.net

No reporting addresses found for, using devnull for tracking.

No valid email addresses found, sorry!
