  1. I've been a member for years, and all that time I've Emailed one spam at a time as an attachment to only one recipient in the To field, my submit.blahblahblah[at]spam.spamcop.net. And faithfully your servers have sent back an Email with a link to report it. But recently it just plain stopped. Several times over I've removed my one and only mail host, comcast.net, and re-created it, then it works OK, but only for a few days, then it stops again, so I remove and re-create the mail host again. I just did it today. I've whitelisted you and checked all my filters. I don't filter any spam, because I want all that spam coming in so I can report it to you. But the only thing I can do now is log in to your site, copy-and-paste the full headers and body of every Email, click process, and report it that way. This is my fifth new topic on this subject, I've read all the responses to all the others, I've followed all the instructions, seen all the links, and absolutely nothing works. Correction: every time I re-create my mail host, it works for a few days, then stops. What in heck is going on?
  2. Thanks, gentlemen. I had already set up a filter with the simple rule that the From address contain "spamcop.net". Just for the heck of it I deleted my one mail host and re-created it. It have me two choices, one unchecked, so I checked it, and I got two config Emails, each with an Email address to forward it and a web-page link into which to paste the full headers and body. The Email forwarding failed, but the web page succeeded, for both. So I'll see what happens now...
  3. This has been going on for a month or more now: I get a piece of spam, so I send it to my special "submit..." Email address: The Submit address is the only recipient, and I put it in the To field, not CC or BCC. I don't have any special name tag in my address book, e.g., "SpamCopReport" < submit...[at]spamcop.net > I always forward one spam at a time, and always as an attachment. I use Comcast's web-based Email, not Outlook, Outlook Express, or anything else. I've tried it both with and without any body text. I've done it this way for years, but lately I haven't been getting any auto-responses back (with the reporting link). However, when I log in to www.spamcop.net I have a whole bunch of unreported spam, so I report it all. What's going on with the auto-responder? Maybe I have to erase all my Email host settings and reconfigure? Thanks for looking into this...

    [Resolved] Not getting auto-responses!

    I think I've solved the issue. The way I've been reporting spam all this time is to forward each one as an attachment to not only my submit... address but also: abuse[at]comcast.net missed-spam[at]comcast.net mta-abuse[at]comcast.net phishing-report[at]us-cert.gov reportphishing[at]antiphishing.org reportphishing[at]apwg.org spam[at]uce.gov ...and I guess that's too many recipients now. I've had recent success (although not 100%) by sending each spam only to my secret address. So I guess that's what I should do now. FYI go to http://www.abuse.net/lookup.phtml to get a page where you can enter a domain, and it will tell you where to forward spam. It's not 100% accurate, but if you know an Email address they don't, there's a systematic way you can tell them many. Finally, thanks to all for your help and responses.

    I deliberately turn off all of Comcast's spam filtering, and I even set up a general Email-filtering rules that specifically lets in all Emails from spamcop[at]devnull.spamcop.net. I actually *want* spam, because I report it all to not only SpamCop but many other anti-spam and -phishing addresses. And I've always forwarded one spam at a time, and always as an attachment. I've briefly been an administrator of an Exchange server with a Barracuda hooked up to it... Anyway, it didn't take long: I got a real spam. I reported it, pulled up the Report spam page in a new tab, then refreshed both tabs over and over again for about ten minutes. Nothing on either one. So I copied-and-pasted the View-Source screen contents into the Report spam big text field, clicked Report, and off it went. Fortunately it was kind of short, but what if a spam has a big bunch of attachments -- won't the source be so big it won't fit into the text field? I remember reading somewhere that the text field has a limit, and there's also a limit to the Email size, but it's a lot bigger. But the bottom line is, I've Emailed spams to SpamCop as I described here for years, and until only recently it has worked, even after re-configuring my Email host (Comcast). Could it have to do with these recent anti-spammer changes? Or should I speak with Comcast (whose customer service royally SUCKS!)?

    Well, I Emailed myself two short messages with no images and non-blank message bodies, and I forwarded both to my "submit" Email address. I got responses in Email, I kept open the Report spam page and refreshed it, and I saw the two reports come up. I wasn't sure whether the Report Now link on the page would give me a chance to cancel, so I used the auto-response Emails' links and cancelled from the page to which each one led. Now on the page I see two recent reports cancelled. So it seems everything is normal from your simple test. But how can every real spam i report not be going through? I guess I'll wait for a real spam and go through this whole exercise again: checking both the Report spam page and my Email for any response. I'll let you know...
  7. I submit spams pretty much every day, and I've done so for years. Usually it takes seconds to get an auto-response, the Email with the link to the page that has the Report spam button. But for the past month or more I haven't gotten anything. I log in to www.spamcop.net, check my recent reports, and I find none. I've even deleted all my mail hosts and re-created them: I started with "comcast.net", I got two checkboxes, one of them already checked, I checked the other one, I submitted both, and I got two "Success" Emails. This was in the past week or so. But i still never get anything when I submit spams. I've also confirmed that my "submit" Email address hasn't changed, and I'm not getting bouncebacks from Comcast or Spamcop. What's going on? Is your service still up and working?

    Outlook received header problem

    Dear Ellen and Wazoo: I was directed to this topic by a respondent to a topic I started about Outlook 2010 (Always says "Nothing to do"). So 2010 must be doing the same thing. If I can help you by sending you stuff from my 2010 I'll do it. Meanwhile what I can tell you is that forwarding as an attachment fails MOST of the time, but from Comcast's Email web site it works -- MOST of the time.
  9. Thanks for your effort, but I'm curious -- what does Yahoo have to do with anything? My ISP is Comcast.
  10. I got a new computer, so I've deleted all my hosts and added my main Email address anew. The account confirmation Email's first two header lines are: Return-Path: service[at]admin.spamcop.net Received: from imta29.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net (LHLO imta29.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net) (76.96.28.170) by sz0064.wc.mail.comcast.net with LMTP; Wed, 22 Aug 2012 00:26:17 +0000 (UTC) When I'm at the mailhosts menu I see two drop-downs, lists of names and IP addresses: the ones selected are not "imta29.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net" and "76.96.28.170" but those are on the long lists (which I wish were... um... sorted?) Yet, ALMOST every time I forward a spam Email -- as an attachment -- to my Spamcop Email address, I get the auto-response, I click the reporting link, and all I get is: Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts Will not trust anything beyond this header No source IP address found, cannot proceed. Add/edit your mailhost configuration Finding full email headers Submitting spam via email (may work better) Example: What spam headers should look like Nothing to do. All this is when I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7. When I use Comcast's web page to view my Email and report spam via my Spamcop Email address, it usually works. What's going on?
  11. When I try to re-register, it says my Email address is already registered. I can't find anything about unregistering anywhere. How do I un-register?
  12. OK, I saw the announcement, so I'll report spam a different way. But now I have two qeuestions: 1. How did it work just fine until recently, when I've had Outlook 2003 for years? 2. Occasionally I use Comcast's web site, not Outlook, and I still get similar errors every time. Why is that?
  13. Actually I did find a real issue with mailhost configuration: I went through the "Add first host" process and had two account-configuration Emails set to me for "mx2.comcast.net (pri 5)" and "mx1.comcast.net (pri 5)". With each I sent four messages to the address it said: 1) forward the original ACE as an attachment, 2) new message with the ACE pasted (same as attaching), 3) new message with the ACE's body copied and pasted, and 4) new message with the full headers plus the body copied and pasted. All four failed. But what I found was that my Outlook 2003 had removed some line breaks, so I repeated all eight Emails, carefully restoring line breaks first, and only method 4. worked with both ACE's. Specifically, the last line of codes looked like this: X-SpamCop-Hash: 70e86aa88f62bc7f0e7fa0d921c7ac63 #######################... ...and when I restored line breaks, it looked like is should: X-SpamCop-Hash: 70e86aa88f62bc7f0e7fa0d921c7ac63 ################################################################ Anyway, so now that I've newly reconfigured my mailhost, maybe that will make a difference...
  14. All I know is, I've reported spam for years the same way: 1. Forward one spam at a time as an attachment to submit.blahblahblah[at]spamcop.net 2. Open response from the auto-responder and click the link. 3. Get to the web page with the "Send Reports" button, and click it. 4. Get to the web page saying "Reports sent". But now I get "errors encountered" emails every time. That's all I know. I've tried deleting and re-configuring my mailhost -- maybe that'll do it...
  15. First, I've seen plenty of other posts via Googling it. Second, the only sure way to show anyone what's going on is to attach four messages to an Email to some administrator: 1) an original spam, 2) my forwarding of the spam to my personal "submit.junk[at]spamcop.net" Email address, 3) the response with the link directing me to page to report the spam, and 4) the "errors encountered" Email. Third, here's the complete body of the latest "errors-encounteted" Email I got. It looks like a lot of headers, but it's really the body: =================================================================== SpamCop encountered errors while saving spam for processing: SpamCop could not find your spam message in this email: Return-Path: <jasmith4[at]comcast.net> Received: from sc-smtp6-inbound.soma.ironport.com (sc-smtp6-inbound.soma.ironport.com [204.15.82.72]) by prod-sc-app5.soma.ironport.com (Postfix) with ESMTP id 25049A15C10 for <submit.8z9c09jeygibmggs[at]spam.spamcop.net>; Thu, 2 Jun 2011 05:54:40 -0700 (PDT) X-Fozzie-Original-To: submit.8z9c09jeygibmggs[at]spam.spamcop.net Received: from qmta06.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net ([76.96.62.56]) by vmx2.spamcop.net with ESMTP; 02 Jun 2011 05:54:39 -0700 Received: from omta12.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net ([76.96.62.44]) by qmta06.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net with comcast id r0tk1g0040xGWP8560ugHP; Thu, 02 Jun 2011 12:54:40 +0000 Received: from sz0064.wc.mail.comcast.net ([76.96.58.118]) by omta12.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net with comcast id r0uf1g00b2Z32Zo3Y0ufnv; Thu, 02 Jun 2011 12:54:39 +0000 Date: Thu, 2 Jun 2011 12:54:37 +0000 (UTC) From: jasmith4[at]comcast.net To: abuse[at]comcast.net, missed-spam[at]comcast.net, mta-abuse[at]comcast.net, submit.8z9c09jeygibmggs[at]spam.spamcop.net, spam[at]uce.gov Message-ID: <1247061866.572598.1307019277571.JavaMail.root[at]sz0064a.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net> Subject: Re:3 MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit X-Originating-IP: [88.252.19.40] X-Mailer: Zimbra 6.0.5_GA_2431.RHEL5_64 (zclient/6.0.5_GA_2431.RHEL5_64) There is nothing better than good sex!... http:{break}//elcoyots.com.br/friends.links.php?esyGIS=40b4 The email which triggered this auto-response had the following headers: Return-Path: <jasmith4[at]comcast.net> Received: from sc-smtp6-inbound.soma.ironport.com (sc-smtp6-inbound.soma.ironport.com [204.15.82.72]) by prod-sc-app5.soma.ironport.com (Postfix) with ESMTP id 25049A15C10 for <submit.8z9c09jeygibmggs[at]spam.spamcop.net>; Thu, 2 Jun 2011 05:54:40 -0700 (PDT) X-Fozzie-Original-To: submit.8z9c09jeygibmggs[at]spam.spamcop.net Received: from qmta06.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net ([76.96.62.56]) by vmx2.spamcop.net with ESMTP; 02 Jun 2011 05:54:39 -0700 Received: from omta12.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net ([76.96.62.44]) by qmta06.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net with comcast id r0tk1g0040xGWP8560ugHP; Thu, 02 Jun 2011 12:54:40 +0000 Received: from sz0064.wc.mail.comcast.net ([76.96.58.118]) by omta12.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net with comcast id r0uf1g00b2Z32Zo3Y0ufnv; Thu, 02 Jun 2011 12:54:39 +0000 Date: Thu, 2 Jun 2011 12:54:37 +0000 (UTC) From: jasmith4[at]comcast.net To: abuse[at]comcast.net, missed-spam[at]comcast.net, mta-abuse[at]comcast.net, submit.8z9c09jeygibmggs[at]spam.spamcop.net, spam[at]uce.gov Message-ID: <1247061866.572598.1307019277571.JavaMail.root[at]sz0064a.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net> Subject: Re:3 MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit X-Originating-IP: [88.252.19.40] X-Mailer: Zimbra 6.0.5_GA_2431.RHEL5_64 (zclient/6.0.5_GA_2431.RHEL5_64) Here's the whole body from the last one I got.
