  1. *67 does not really block your Caller ID if you are using a large commercial service such as AT&T,or others similar. The CID is just masked in which there are ways to unmask it.

    Eonix.net helping spammers?

    I have been using Thunderbird email client. I have since discovered it is using Spamassassin.. It never did stop any of those coming from Eonix.net. Though I do see it is stopping some spam, as noted with the spam in the Junk folder. None of which has ever been from Eonix.net IP blocks. On the other hand, I have seemed to of blocked all of Eonix.net as I have not gotten a single spam from them since my last posting.
  3. How about this guy? The Thunderbird client has it already included, and will sent it to your junk folder (if it detects the email as spam).

    Reporting spam has no effect

    It seems Spamcop no longer has the clout it had some years ago. I still report, but nothing usually gets done from most of those service providers. Also to get blocked, it has to be a few people reporting (not sure of the number of reports) the same spammer on the same IP address. I used to get 10+ spams a day from one provider. The fact the spams came from sequential IP addresses tells me the provider is in cahoots with the spammer. I then tried some other block lists. After reporting, I would see the spammer IP addresses listed in various spam lists, and blocking services I was using on the email server, but for some unknown reason the spam/IP address was not being blocked. I gave up on block lists and started just blocking that provider IP range. Then I got confirmation the provider is in cahoots with the spammer, when I started getting more batches of spam from another of their data centers in the same manner as before.

    Eonix.net helping spammers?

    I guess I will need to look at spam Assassin. Since I posted this, I have had to blocked three more Eonix data centers/IP block ranges (Even had something come in from SpamChimp). They are clearly spam friendly. Maybe time for a campaign to ARIN to have their IP addresses revoked? Do they even do that? With the mass amount of reporting of Eonix I did through Spamcop, it seems it just does not have the clout it had in the past. Thanks for the input.
  6. Back in early April I was getting a few from Google (when I usually don't). I reported them and they seemed to have stopped altogether now.
  7. For many months now, I had been getting ten or more spams from their network. I would report each and every one of them, and would see the ports would go to poc@eonix.net or abuse@eonix.net. After about four months, and the spams still kept coming day after day despite reporting, I decided to just go ahead and block the IP range from which the spams would come from. That sure did stop eonix.net from sending anymore more; so I thought. A week later more spams would start arriving from eonix.net, Looking, I see they are coming from a new block of IP addresses at a different location. This has been repeating for a while now. Another reason I am asking if eonix.net is helping spammers is because these spams were not coming from the same IP address, but the next IP address in numerical sequence. Ten or more spams, all coming from the next number up in an IP address? I mean come on now, they have to be helping, right? Anyone know of their reputation? Here is another thing. For a while I decided to add the Sorbs Blacklist.The reason is because after each report for spam from eonix.net, I would see the IP address is on Sorbs. I have noticed it is easy to get listed on there and stay listed. So I add their blacklist, and guess what? The spam from eonix.net listed on Sorbs is still getting to my email server, but legit mail such as from PayPal is getting blocked by Sorbs! They in cahoots also?
  8. Yes, go ahead and mark it resolved. Thanks again.

    SpamCop blacklisting

    That "well-known email broadcast company." would not happen to be Spamchimp, would it?
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
