    How on earth is one to trace AOL spam complaints on a server when they don't provide necessary headers?

    I already have this in the advanced exim config:

    Code:
    untrusted_set_sender = *
    local_from_check     = false
    local_sender_retain  = true
    
    timeout_frozen_after = 2d
    ignore_bounce_errors_after = 12h
    
    domainlist rbl_blacklist = lsearch;/etc/rblblacklist 
    domainlist rbl_bypass = lsearch;/etc/rblbypass 
    hostlist rbl_whitelist = lsearch;/etc/relayhosts : partial-lsearch;/etc/rblwhitelist
    message_size_limit = 20M
    log_selector = +all
    log_selector = +subject
    log_selector = +all -ident_timeout -pid
    
    All I got was:

    2010-01-18 19:50:21 1NX3Eb-0006rR-CH <= donna.brown@yahoo.com H=localhost (xxx.xxx.65.106) [127.0.0.1] P=esmtp S=10094 id=e7c7f3e77cd667c129cebd3782e76230@xxx.xxx.65.106 T="Viagra professional in store. Strong today"

    Going out on a limb here, but I assume you are not subscribed/aware of the AOL FBL (FeedBack Loop). They send ARF reports for each complaint received that include all the necessary information for manual or automatic ARF report parsing and analysis. More info:

    AOL Postmaster | Postmaster / Feedback Loop Information

    Already signed up to their FBL and the FBL is the one not providing the headers.

    The ARF format is not providing the headers in Outlook. Not sure about webmail.

    See attached.

    Using Outlook 2007, doesn't allow view source option for some reason.

    If I try to view headers on the actual spam complaint from AOL itself I get something like this:

    Code:
    Return-path: <scomp@aol.net>

    If you open the attached email and go to the Message Options dialog panel you should see all that you need under "Internet Headers".
