When you are parsing an actual spam, you get to see more information
than if you just give the parser a target to give you a notify addy.
The verbose parse will show you some 'why' about why an addy doesn't get
used - either based on bounces or that the entity doesn't want SC
reports. Then you can mail the same addy that SC chose to not. In the
case of kornet, the reg'd abuse addies are:
whois -h whois.abuse.net kornet.net ...
abuse at kornet.net postmaster at kornet.net spamrelay at certcc.or.kr (for
Then, you will gather your own experience with the kornet addies re
bounces and such.
