    Reporting spam Send From My Own Address?

    Thank you for the response. It will be obvious I would not send myself an e-mail to blackmail myself. (Can't believe I did not think of that. ) So if I get another invitation from myself again to donate money to myself "or else" I will report it.

    Reporting spam Send From My Own Address?

    PS: Tried to give spam a capital S in the title after posting this thread, but no dice. After changing spam to spam it still appears as spam. Oh well, no biggie. 😊 Funny, here writing spam with a capital in the above line it also appears with a lower case s. I guess spam does not deserve a capital anywhere. 😄
  3. Hi, yesterday I got a blackmail e-mail. Someone send it seemingly from and to my e-mail address. As if I send it to myself. He claimed he had hacked a porn site I had been going to, had gotten my address there, had loaded a Trojan on my PC, used my webcam to spy on me, and had images of me looking very excited at pictures and clips on that site. He also had everything I have on my PC. That I had to pay him €35 to get rid of him, and he gave a bitcoin address. I know all that is bogus -not that I've never visited a porn site- as I always have my webcam lens closed off, except for an occasional Skype talk. Plus I have no malware on my laptop according to Emsisoft, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro and the free herdProtect which uses 68 scan engines. But I did not forward it to SpamCop, as he used my e-mail address to send it from. Although I suppose SpamCop can see in the header that is not coming from me. So in case he sends me more, shall I just tap it away again, or report it to SpamCop?
  4. Hi, And old "Message could not be delivered" issue is back. Plus some strange new ones; I can't log into my report page anymore, and sending the filled in contact form fails to work also. (....Deleted for being obsolete now...) See below: ................ PS: In the mean time the login and contact form issue are solved; they were due to my AdGuard settings. I was able to fill in the contact form and send it.
  5. I don't know anything about updating mailhosts. First time I heard about it. Thank you for providing that email address. I'll utilize it. PS: Richard just fixed it after I send an email to that address, and I was able to report the spam I had just gotten. Thanks for your help.
  6. I guess this one will do: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6262670007z416c5441002e4bdfd4fb38146ddb1d22z
  7. Thank you. I would like to continue on the second thread I started after this one because I couldn't find this one,and thought maybe I had made a mistake and it didn't appear. Second thread:
  8. Thank you for your reply. Only now I returned here because I just got another spam. That is about the frequency lately: I get one once a week. That's why I said it's not a biggie. Looking at a whole screen full of header data I don't understand and have no idea what is what. I made 2 screen shots covering all that, but not knowing if it would be a good idea to make those header data public here I haven't attached them. I would like to send them though email to someone from SpamCop though. But I don't have an email address of an administrator. I used to and was helped by him a few times, but that kind helper has passed on I understand, and I don't even have his address any more.
  9. After years of succesfully reporting, lately reporting results in this message appearing on my reporting page: "Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source Mailhost: Please correct this situation - register every email address where you receive spam No source IP address found, cannot proceed. (...) Nothing to do." To my knowledge I have not changed anything. And don't know how to fix this. Luckily I've hardly been getting spam for quite some time already (was very different once when I got about a 100 a day which I all reported for over a month till it finally diminished) so it's not a biggie now. But if it's easy to fix...

    spam on SpamCop

    I admit this brought a smile to my face -and I have one on it now while typing this- when I discovered spam in my message box here. Dear miss Jenny is looking for friendship. I already am satisfied in that department, so feel free to contact her and start something wonderful:
  11. Hi! For some time now I've been getting this message when reporting spam: "Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source Mailhost: Please correct this situation - register every email address where you receive spam No source IP address found, cannot proceed." Yet I dont know how to fix this. Luckily I only get one single spam once every week or so -not like once in the past, when at one time I reported up to a 100 a day- so it's not a biggie... yet if it ain't too much work for anyone here to explain how to fix it, nor for me to do it, be my welcome guest.
  12. Thank you. I see nothing can be done to undo sending a report: "SpamCop reports are sent via SMTP email, and SMTP has no feature to "unsend" email messages. You should manually send a retraction and apology to those to whom you reported the spam, with a copy mentioning the Report ID to deputies <at> spamcop.net. Any originating ISPs will be able to use your recantation as evidence with SpamCop if your report landed them onto the SpamCop Blocking List. To find those to whom you sent the erroneous report, use the Links "Past Reports" and "View recent reports", leading to the "Show past reports" / "Report History" Page http://www.spamcop.n...ion=showhistory, http://members.spamc...ion=showhistory, or http://mailsc.spamco...ion=showhistory. I just send the data to "deputies <at> spamcop.net". ~"FAQ Entry: How can I unsend a report?" http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/topic/138-faq-entry-how-can-i-unsend-a-report/ Glad the problem was solved.
  13. PS: I was just contacted by a man from the host, and it turned out he had discovered there was "something" on that site that wasn't supposed to be there. So it was luck that I reported what I did he said. He was letting the domain owner know about it. I recommended the free version of Incapsula for that site. To prevent more undesirable "somethings" from being placed on it.
  14. OMG, that site is already blocked! Luckily clicking on it showed the host and contact info. So I explained my error to them, gave a link to this tread, and the SC report info. Plus my apologies and the request to make that site available to the public again.
