    Spamcop Alternatives?

    As others have asked, since the Held folder will vanish, what happens to mail filtered as spam ? Could just have *** spam *** added to the subject of course

    Very poor Spamcop stop rates

    (above) "But last month I only got 10 Spams in Held of which 4 were from personal blacklist items and 2 leaks (my oldest mailbox now is strong filtering applied by the ISP)." Can't switch it off but until I can prove something I want didn't arrive, nothing much to complain of. (edit add) Back in 2008 I noted last month I got 2799 spams (90/d), 130 leakers (=4.6 %), 3 false positive(s) ==
  3. I understand (99 sent : 99 bounces) means 50% bounced.

    I don't think going down to 1 helps much. Curiously my spam rate has just doubled from a rate of 20/month to 40/month but all the extras have been stopped by xbl or SA=3

    If you now whitelist the false positives and blacklist all the country codes (that you don't have senders using) things should improve a bit more. Most of the leakers I see can't be stopped without triggering yet more false positives.

    As noted we to need to look at the SpamAssassin hits for those that got through ('Leaked') it may be that setting the level to 2 will help. Somewhere you can find my notes on How I use SpamCop mail. The only extras I use is that I have items in my personal blacklist such as Blacklist br (Brazil) and biz and mx But last month I only got 10 Spams in Held of which 4 were from personal blacklist items and 2 leaks (my oldest mailbox now is strong filtering applied by the ISP).
  7. Return mailhost configuration test email ? So what is Don trying to achieve ?

    So, if this is typical, even setting the level to 1 wouldn't help you much. If you have Block All checked then surely the SpamAssassin limit doesn't do anything ?
  9. The button is in fact "Process spam"

    Interesting, rather. The =4 is a transcription of X-spam-Level: **** and the rest depends on what level you have set plus whitelisting and any other checks.

    If you can summarise the SpamAssassin scores for the ones that make it to your Inbox ?

    My inbox is suddenly empty!

    Yes everything seems to be working right now and my inbox refilled first with new mail and then with old. I agree, no tweets or non-auto response to 'problem'.

    My inbox is suddenly empty!

    If you mean the problem is fixed, it isn't. I just got it for the first time 20 minutes ago and have filed a Problem. It came and went and one other folder that was claimed to be empty is now OK.
  14. Arranging to cc: these reports to a spare mailbox might clarify timings etc.

    not a routeable IP address

    Using Windows Powershell I copy/pasted the URL you give ÑкандинавÑкаÑ-одежда.рф And did a ping which happily used [78.46.223.255] (though the rest made little sense) PS C:\Users\mrd> ping ?????????????-??????.?? Pinging xn----7sbaabjmeajlrxf4bcw6bi6z.xn--p1ai [78.46.223.255] with 32 bytes of data: Spamcop sez Reports disabled for abuse[at]hetzner.de So nothing difficult here

    [Resolved] ATT/Yahoo/Bellsouth randomly blocking client

    But do they operate any mailing lists at all ? Thus AOL users are notorious for reporting subscribed mailing lists as spam because unsubscribing was "too difficult".
  17. Hee ! Only 40 held items year to date. 20 leakers and 14473 Ham in same period
  18. And I am seeing lots and lots of POPed mail since 21:56 (GMT+1)
  19. Same here, nothing from my POP accounts in the last 15 hours. Direct to CQmail and forward works.
  20. I get very little "direct-to-CESMail" so I would certainly notice spam.

    [Resolved] Other email addresses

    As I understand it email addresses whether from From: Reply-To: or in the body, are (now) never used as a subject of a report. So if you think they should be reported in a particular case they need to be looked up and added as an extra addressee.
  22. I don't follow you. If the spammer sends to c.ojones[at]Hotmail.com, c.ojones[at]spamcop.net and so forth what would you call this style ?

    Lost mail

    What are you saying ? Unless the accounts that you are POPing overflow or CQmail POPs emails then loses them who needs to retry ? Got duplicates and triplicates but nothing lost as far as I can tell.

    Mail Not Coming Through

    As of about 00:00 BST both POP'd and forwarded missing mail had arrived in my Inbox. up to 3 extra copies of POP mail from a list.

    Mail Not Coming Through

    Unfortunately not. See the message about reconfiguration of a server. Some mailing list stuff arrived, often duplicated or triplicated and ordinary mail but nothing in the last three hours.
