> SC Mail Still Accepting New Subs - Why ???????
Posted by Ex_Brit - 08-30-14 06:40 - 2 comments
They are shutting down the email service on 30 September yet the subscription service is still active?

Please - that should be taken down!!

I tested it with a new fictitious name and got as far as Paypal. That's bad.

> [Resolved] Problem when reporting to quick address
Posted by dbolt - 08-28-14 10:33 - 3 comments
Hi all,

I have updated my amavisd conf to send all spams (hits > 10) to a specific mailbox. Then, I wrote a PERL scri_pt to report all these messages to my quick report address.

Problem, I always receive the following feedback from the parser:
Here are the results of your submission:

  Processing spam:


  error:No IP found

I checked the headers (and particularly took care to let a blank line between the headers and the body). Amavisd does not detect those emails as having bad headers. Moreover, if I just copy/paste the email content in the "Process spam" textarea, it works well.

Example: I sent this email (full debug from PERL): Debug trace and I received the error message above. Then, I pasted the content in the textarea and it worked: Tracking URL

Do you have any idea regarding what I am doing wrong?

> Reporting service down???
Posted by mrmaxx - 08-28-14 08:36 - 3 comments
For some reason, it appears that the reporting server is not working right now, or maybe it's just the web gateway server. For whatever reason, I'm getting a notice of "service unavailable" in Firefox when I go to Also was prompted to confirm a security exception (new security cert, I'm presuming based on the date.)

Note: It appears to be JUST "" as I was able to log into with my mailsc credentials.

Daily a dozen or two spams from get through my ISP's email filters.
All are touting product from South American businesses - in my case mainly from Peru.
Forever SpamCop has been devnulling anything for hetzner, so my reports are only going to Knujon.
Reading around the web it seems that hetzner have a reputation for cheap high-bandwidth hosting, "cheap" explains why many users report poor or non-existent support. If customers struggle to get a response we spam-complainers have no chance sad.gif
I did read how some dark-webbers have been DOSing other dark-webbers who are hosted by hetzner. It seems hetzner's minimal sysops staff simply shut down any hosted server that comes under DOS attack - the L33ts are having fun taking each other off the air. Apparently it only costs $5 to hire a "gun"...
Google "How to destroy someone who hosts stuff at Hetzner" if you are at all interested.

There must be a better way of larting hetzner isn't there? Do they really not care if their servers end up on blacklists?
