SpamCop is the premier service for reporting spam. SpamCop determines the origin of unwanted email and reports it to the relevant Internet service providers. By reporting spam, you have a positive impact on the problem. Reporting unsolicited email also helps feed spam filtering systems, including, but not limited to, SpamCop's own service.

> Pasted Report Missing Body
Posted by David40 - 04-15-14 10:49 - 2 comments
Quick question about certain spam email I try to Report. I copy the entire headers from Outlook Express to the clip board. When I paste the contents to the Reporting window at spamcop all the text that was in the body of the email comes out as blocks of seemingly random letters.
Normally I delete any text added by my antivirus software so that they don't get reported as part of the spam, but after Pasting, the added text become a part of the jumbled letters that the spamcop system properly un-translates from this jumbled code once it is reported. Is there a way to Paste the reported email in a way that I can edit out the unwanted antivirus text in the Reporting window?

> Suddenly No Images In Incoming Emails - SC or My ISP?
Posted by Ex_Brit - 04-11-14 17:09 - 5 comments
All my emails are arriving stripped of images suddenly as of late this morning. Is it SC?
It's a nuisance as it means I have to view the web version, if available. It renders newsletters useless.
I have email scanning turned off in my A/V btw.

> BT Mail 'Upgrade'
Posted by Dave___ - 04-11-14 14:07 - 0 comments
Update: further tests have resolved the issue, but this would not have arisen without BT Mail problems ...

After some serious password change problems with BT/Yahoo Mail, my SpamCop webmail service is no longer picking up my incoming BT e-mail messages.

However, the Outlook 'test account settings' for my SpamCop e-mail registers as working (used to collect incoming BT e-mail), when it clearly isn't.

Also, some BT customers have been experiencing major problems with BT Mail and the latest transition, e.g.,

BTCare Community Forums ... Re: Transfer to BT Mail

Any suggestions for a test/check to resolve this problem would be much appreciated.

> Name Expansion - Where is the cache? Voodoo?
Posted by cherrick - 04-10-14 16:46 - 2 comments
Here is a question for all you long-time Spamcoppers who know your Spamcop "Name Expansion" inside and out:
Where does Spamcop store those names and email addresses?

I know I have my address book with my contacts, etc. But Spamcop is saving old "names/email addresses" in some additional place. Why do I say that?

If in the TO: field I put an ambiguous name (i.e. multiple possible resolution/expansions) and click on the "Expand Names" icon on the Send window, Spamcop will dredge up all possible names/email addresses and put a chooser/drop-down on the TO: field letting me select how to expand that name.

So far so fabulous.

But the names/email addresses? Not all those email addresses are from my address book. Some of them are very old names/email addresses from way back "in the day". I'm confused.

Are these being stored in some http history place? Or some cookie that Spamcop maintains?

Can you help? Teach me the voodoo of that Spamcop voodoo that Spamcop does so well (so well I don't understand it).

> Why does Spamcop get such bad scores from SSL Labs server tester?
Posted by netmammal - 04-9-14 19:50 - 2 comments
After reading about the OpenSSL Heartbleed security discovery, I started checking all of my important email vendors and web hosting, credit union etc. They all seem to have reacted quickly, and patched their systems, and posted info on what they have done.

Not Spamcop though. There is no post anywhere indicating that Spamcop is either safe, or that they are working on it. Why?

In an effort to figure out if Spamcop's servers still had the unfixed SSL code, I found SSL Lab's Server Test, and discovered that this test rates an "F" for the security of SSL.

Why is Spamcop so bad, and why should I not be concerned?
