    SpamCop blacklisting

    That "well-known email broadcast company." would not happen to be Spamchimp, would it?
  3. Yes, this is an old thread, but useful information to add. I have never received a single op in from Spamchimp, but yet have continued to get spammed by them nearly on a daily basis from unknown persons/entities. What I ended up doing to fight spam chimp is to setup my own email server. Using their own IP "whitelist" people can use to "make sure our [spammy] emails get to you," I turned it into a IP range blacklist with a nasty message using Postfix. Now running my own server, I have run into a different breed of spammers. Those working from home sending me spam from their business class cable powered Internet such as from Verizon, and Comcast. I reported them through Spamcop, and blocked specific IP instead of the IP range. Their providers don't seem to care, so I have ended up blocking entire IP ranges, which I hate to do, but each day, the same persons are sending similar emails, just getting a slightly different IP number.
  4. The server finally started responding after a day.I fixed that 450 errorand got the test email through. Odd the system has such requirements when those options are to help prevent spam. Thanks!
  5. I see it has something to do with postfix settings. I am not sure if it is accepting the changes I made, or not as now the Spamcop server seems to be having issues now.
  6. I setup my own server. When adding I am getting an error. Server has been up for a month, or so and been sending/receiving mail just fine. Why is this indicating offline? Thanks!
  7. I feel Spamcop is not helping much anymore. I think the ONLY means to stop spammers is to just run your own email server and block at will whatever you want. Reasoning, most reports either got o devnull, or are ignored, and in many cases there is not enough reporting threshold to get a block.
  8. The reports mostly going to devull is because originator of the email domain, and the IP number owner are one in the same according to ARIN. I guess stuff from everyone! Wayfare com , Gamestop (someone opened a rewards account with my email address in the store), ESPN, CBS Sports, Reader's Digest (Someone got a sub from them and I get spam from them) , University of Oklahoma (Someone went to school there, now they spam me)...I even get email from state of Ohio concerning application for concealed handgun permit, and nursing licensing. The reports go to the trash, and the report threshold never activate any block.
  9. It seems I have a very poplar email address, and I often get emails from people thinking it is someone else, and unconfirmed subscribe requests on a daily basis, and it is getting worse all the time. I report this UCE everyday, but it always goes to devnull, and so few people reporting the spam it does nothing to help the spam problem, thus Spamcop has become utterly useless, and wastes my time in reporting How about taking this so-called "legitimate" spam more serious, and take more drastic measures such as automatic block on those who refuse munged reports? I am at the point where I need to just stop reporting any spam to Spamcop all together since it is doing nothing to curb spam, and close down that email account I have had for over 10 years.
  10. I had been getting a ton of spam from this address which the abuse contact was abuse[at]sendgrid.com. Now they are getting DevNulled.. Instead of sending to trash, reports then should go higher up the chain to combat this growing problem. My spam is skyrocket s from so-called "legitimate" spammers. Per Softlayer's policy "SoftLayer reserves the right to suspend peering for an indefinite period of time should any form of network abuse be verified to take place via the peering interconnect such as denial of service attacks (DOS), unsolicited bulk email (spam), or setting default-route to SoftLayer." I short chat with them, and they state "You can send your complaint and findings to abuse[at]softlayer.com. They will investigate and suspend the customer's servers if they can verify your claim."
  11. I am aware what ARIN does, but if they are using it to abuse email, then I think they would have the authority to revoke those addresses. And instead of DevNull why not just send to spam[at]uce.gov?
  12. I see the reporting address has been changed to arin-notice[at]wayfair.com. What is the significance of this?
  13. Reasoning: It currently is going to postmaster[at]wayfair.com, the offender itself, The company has registered their own IP addresses with ARIN. Per ARIN Web site ( , abuses such as spam need to go to: postmaster[at]arin.net I am currently getting unsolicited/unconfirmed commercial spam from them on a daily basis now.

    Reporting to SpamCop from Gmail

    You could always host your own mail server, blocking all Google mail with a note telling them to use another service until they start accepting spamcop notices again.
  15. Really? https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6339946421z37271f903e974392c9711d4f9943aa9bz
