You seem to be seriously mistaken there. SpamCop hasn't intercepted your
mail. What has happened is the admins of your fathers ISP have decided
to use the SpamCop blacklist to refuse to accept mail from those servers
that it says have sent spam.

So complain to the admins of the server you're sending your mail
through. They are very likely to be the ones that are causing your

If my guess is right, and you are sending mail through the servers
provided by you web host (schlund.de), your best bet would be to stop
using the servers of a spam-supporting ISP and send your mail through
the servers of your ISP (force9/plusnet.net). At least that way you're
less likely to have your mail blocked.
 Multiple spams from them, all reported and then followed up when the
spam didn't stop. The best they could offer was to get the spammer to
list-wash me, which they don't appear to have even bothered doing. I'm
still getting the spams from that same spammer, still reporting them and
Schlund don't seem to be doing anything about it.
