  1. Just tried again (six weeks later!) to add mt [at]verizon.net e-mail (now handled by AOL) and I am still getting the same error. Is anybody actually reading this?
  2. I am getting the same error. My [at]verizon.net e-mail address recently got moved over to be handled by AOL (details) and I thought I needed to update the mailhosts. I first removed the old verizon mailhost. After submitting the new test e-mail, I get the same error: =================== Host mtaiw-aaa01.mx.aol.com (checking ip) = Sorry, SpamCop has encountered errors: The email sample you submitted for <deleted>[at]verizon.net appears to traverse more than one domain. Please ensure that you configure each mailhost individually and in order. Proceed here: <https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?mhc2=evn4V1lcmmsJVPR8> ======================= Is anybody looking into this? Thanks!

    Parsing of hexadecimal URLs fails

    I doubt unsubscribing would make a difference. This is a brand new pattern that started a few days ago with several dozen messages. (usually I only get one or two spams per day) They all originate from compromised systems (mostly Europe) and the links are hosted all over the place.

    Ah, I thought you could generate a tracking url by opening my link and clicking parse... OK, here is an example (generated from a recent report as just described): https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6194746733z831572b32601ec53fae2dff7ed6f0c07z If this does not work, I'll wait for the next spam....

    Well, I replied yesterday, but the answer seems to be stuck in the moderation queue forever.

    Here are a few, I've got several dozens: https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382913861 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382872229 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382951526 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382951828 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382951827 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382951826 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382861526 https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrack&reportid=6382856612 'Hope this helps.
  7. I've been receiving a lot of spam lately where the links are obfuscated in a certain way (possibly to fool spamcop ) All links are of the following form and there typically at least three such links per e-mail.: (Note that I have removed the long string of random characters in the middle. Full e-mail sources are available on request, of course. In this particular case, the URL is (xA290D6C6), but the parser does not recognize that. It always says "no links found". The URL typically changes, so this is just an example). <a href=``````/[at]/0xA290D6C6/tez.tez?...long random list of characters...><img src=tinyurl.com/pn4sz5z></a><br>
  8. I've been getting regular (~1/day) Chinese spam on one of my e-mail addresses. They always contain links that show up in clear text when hovering over them, but spamcop basically tries to parse them in gibberish and thus always fails. Somehow the parser does not correctly understand the encoding, it seems. What the browser sees (shown in the lower left in chrome) when hovering over the link in the e-mail: "shorts.url.co.il/b2656b" What the spamcop parser sees instead: ... Finding links in message body Parsing HTML part Resolving link obfuscation http://shï½ï½’t.urls.cï½ï¼Žï½‰ï½Œ/b2656b Tracking link: http://shï½ï½’t.urls.cï½ï¼Žï½‰ï½Œ/b2656b No recent reports, no history available shï½ï½’t.urls.cï½ï¼Žï½‰ï½Œ is not a routeable IP address Cannot resolve http://shï½ï½’t.urls.cï½ï¼Žï½‰ï½Œ/b2656b ... What is the best way to submit real examples so this can be tested and corrected? Thanks.
