I still don't understand what this is all about. Is the allegation that

Nope. Spamcop is a spam-blacklisting service. As far as I can tell,
when an e-mail is reported to them (be that by a person, or
automatically by their spam-filter), it's originator (in this case,
samfudnet.no) is added to their blacklist - which is then used by
countless spam-blocking systems around the world. Obviously this can
cause no end of problems if your domain is entirely innocent.
Aha! So we are talking about TWO disasters - firstly, the spam mail getting
through last week, and secondly, Olegil's server being blacklisted as a
result, by some over-zealous filter program.
Now I understand why Olegil was angry. Thanks.
