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.

> Received "JunkMail rejected" bounce to one of my emails
Posted by labboypro - 04-20-14 14:27 - 2 comments
I'm usually the submitter to SC... but apparently, at least one server has decided I'm a spammer (I was sending a NY Times story link about a Wright Brothers book to my brother-in-law... maybe he doesn't like me any more... or hates aviation history ph34r.gif ).

I'm always hesitant to post up full headers for analysis since I'm not completely sure of what I'm exposing about myself. But here's a snippet that refers to the SCBL. Does this mean I'm on the SCBL? If so, any idea why (I'm just an average Joe sending normal emails, and doing my part to REPORT spam _to_ SC)?

SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<my[at]brother-in-law>:
host []: 550-"JunkMail rejected - []:33597 is in an
550 RBL, see Blocked - see"

I think I'm the 208 address... I did a lookup and that is the company that hosts my domain (again, just a guy... I've got a piddly un-updated website with a half dozen pages of static content; the bulk of my domain use is just my personal email address).

I'll be glad to provide more info from the bounce if any of you experts are interested. Just let me know what I ought not to post in the public forum.

Thanks in advance.

> So what (good thing) happened last Tuesday?
Posted by C2H5OH - 04-20-14 08:13 - 2 comments
I noticed a huge reduction in rejections flagged by my email provider, and looking at the spam volumes graphs it seems I'm not mistaken.
Overall spam volume seems to have dropped back to last year's much lower levels.
Sorry if just mentioning this reawakens the curse, but I'd be interested to know what's behind the raw data.

> 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.
