Before I wrote this e-mail, I wrote letters to my ISP and my valid MX
relay to apologize for my rude behavior. Then I e-mailed two different
addresses at spamcop to try to see what could be done to make sure the
reports do not count against my associate valid MX relay and my ISP.

I have a response from them, and will try to work through this with them.
We can see what happens. I still have the "SPAM" that was forwarded with
full headers so they can see why only my ISP or my valid MX relay were the
only ones listed. I am more to blame than spamcop on this one, but want to
help others avoid making the mistakes I made in reading each spam process
thoroughly as I should. :-(
