> Issues sending messages from Webmail on Firefox MAC
Posted by ob1db - 08-21-14 11:12 - 3 comments
Can anyone help on this? I am running Spamcop Webmail on an older Macbook Pro, OS 10.6.8 using the latest version of Firefox. For s few weeks, EVERY time I try to send a message, the window sits there forever with a "waiting for" browser message below it. Eventually, I get this screen:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Apache/2.0.55 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.1.2 mod_ssl/2.0.55 OpenSSL/0.9.8a Server
at Port 80

The messages turn out to actually send every time. (I sent some poor recruiter 6 message copies before I realized what was happening.)

Spamcop support has no idea was it could be. It does NOT happen in Chrome, haven't tried on Safari but I suspect it is a Horde/Firefox issue.

Any ideas?? This is maddening. There are features in Firefox that are not possible (that I know of) in any other browser.

> I've seen my email as part of url in body of spam

I understand that "munging" prevents the perpetrator of the spam simply removing any reporter from their spam mailing list as each or any report occurs, instead of resolving spam practices entirely.
This looks to be an intentional circumvention in order to acieve the former, not comply with the latter.
Unless... my supposition about the reason for "munging" is completely wrong.

> Thousands of Delivery Failure messages
Posted by cliffskier - 08-17-14 10:44 - 2 comments
I have received over 3000 delivery failure messages in the last 36 hours for messages I could not have sent. excl.gif The tracking URLs for a couple of examples are below:

There are a number of variations from different responders including a lot of Ohio state agencies.

As near as I can make out, this seems to involve a mailing list, ConsumerAdvocateMembers[at] All of the bounce messages are sent to that address and they appear to be copied to me. I think the original spam is being sent under the guise of that address, and when it bounces the failure messages are copied to everyone on the list. But then, I don't know why I would be on that list. I have not been able to learn anything about the list through any searches.

I don't see anything in the headers of the original message or the delivery failure message that would suggest that the originals come from my e-mail or are even spoofed to appear that they are sent by me. My SMTP server limits sent messages to 250 per day anyway, so there is no way 3000+ could have been sent from my account.

Any ideas what is going on here or how to stop the messages? blink.gif

Posted by JBJB - 08-14-14 17:07 - 1 comments

I've been getting spammed daily and repeatedly for the past few weeks by addresses leading back to but reports are dev/nulled for them. Nothing is being done about this and the spam just continues. If they ignore the reports, can't they be sent further up the chain?

The following post from 17th Feb 2014 states that abuse should be sent to abuse[at] but that is not the reporting address Spamcop is seeing or using:

• 6179934465 ( ) To:[at]
• 6179934464 ( ) To:[at]
• 6179934463 ( ) To: dnsadmin[at]

Thanks in advance.
