    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    OK ... thanks Wazoo for looking at that ... I've requested that Dale at TELUS Abuse Teluscom get involved and look at my thread here ... we'll see if I can get them to look at the issues I face with TELUS Webmail spam reporting by way of SpamCop.net .

    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    Wazoo ... OK ... made it back up the stairs by dragging my sorry ass up step by step ... anyhow, I just CC'd you in on one of my SpamCop spam submissions, followed by another Forward of the spam all by itself with the words "from Frankenstien (forum) " appended to beginning of Subject line. FYI - In the SpamCop spam submission, I have pasted the TELUS Webmail 'Message Source' display info in at the very beginning of the body of the spam message being forwarded, as I have described in detail earlier.

    Actually, you folks won't hear from me for several hours ... I'm in a full leg cast for a torn Achilles and have to go downstairs to do laundry - gotta stay there for the afternoon as I cannot get up and down the stairs very easily at all (haven't even tried it yet - wish me luck). Will pick this up later.

    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    Steven ... I have yet to try the web parser ... keep forgetting at the opportune moment ... will make a point of trying it and report back here. I've been communicating with a dude named Dale at Abuse Teluscom - 'abuse[at]telus.com' - he's the one who put me onto SpamCop in the first place - he keeps trying to get me to pull spam local to my machine to deal with it and I keep explaining to him that I want to deal with it server-side. Anyways, apparently, no mechanism exists to forward the 'Message Source' info as a standalone attachment, however, there is an 'Attachment' link (command) in a newly opened 'Forward' e-mail that allows one to browse to a file on one's own machine - I suppose I could save the 'Message Source' info as a local file and then attach it to a newly generated, blank, TELUS Webmail e-mail. However, one has to balance cost (in time) versus benefit. I seem to be in pretty deep time-wise. Wazoo ... still waiting on a fresh peice of spam to try what you suggested ... shouldn't be long.

    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    Wazoo ... you're right ... I've shouldv'e just posted ... initially I was just going to alert you to the edit I added re: the whitespace ... then I got going wit the rest ... Anyways, re: "... of the open spam ..." - what I have to do with the TELUS Webmail interface is open a spam e-mail, report it to TELUS using a link (command) present only in the open spam e-mail display, then, in the same open spam e-mail display, click on a link called 'Message Source' to display (in a new window) the full header (and body) info - this is what I'm Selecting All of and Copying (Ctrl C in Win98). I then close the 'Message Source' display window, and click on the 'Forward' link (command) in the still open spam e-mail display. This opens a new e-mail (window/display) that I can paste the 'Message Source' info into at the absolute beginning of the body of the new e-mail. I am then entering my SpamCop submission e-mail address (from an Address Book entry) and sending the newly created 'Forward' e-mail. I am not introducing any changes whatsoever. What do you make of my procedure? I tried substituting the 'Message Source' info for the existing body of the new 'Forward' e-mail - with the same error result in the SpamCop spam report. Thanks for helping me to come to grips with this, eh?

Steven ... that numeric string above is the end of the 'Message Source' display (only) ... FYI - the imbedded 'To' e-mail address, 'k_mcg[at]telus.net', is not mine but similar to mine. This is not something I have done to the 'Message Source' display to protect my real e-mail address - it's how it actually appears. I didn't even have to concern myself with exposing my real e-mail address. This kind of similar addressing is something I see quite a lot of in the spam e-mails I get. Anyways, to answer your question, it appears the header and message body both appear in the 'Message Source' display. Does this revelation dictate the testing of your earlier suggestions one or two? Thanks, Steven 1636PDT15JUN04 edit - suggestion two being tested now 1640PDT15JUN04 edit - suggestion two failed identical to original failure

    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    Steven ... thanks, all good info ... I'll try the webform next spam I see and also suggestions one and two to compare results ... I've been using the methodology you describe in suggestion three and that is what is producing the current error I describe above. Hopefully suggestions one or two will be the charmer(s). I'll post back when I know more. Thanks again.

    bummer ... I'll look at the webform next spam I get ... trouble is, if reporting is too time-consuming, it just isn't going to happen. Thanks for your advice turetzsr.

    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    OK ... that worked (pretty much, I think) ... I got a "Subject: SpamCop has accepted 1 email for processing" e-mail reply and clicked on the imbedded reportiing link. This took me to a SpamCop spam report to complete. However, I did notice one error: "Finding links in message body Parsing text part error: couldn't parse head Message body parser requires full, accurate copy of message More information on this error.. no links found" This is the first SpamCop spam report I've gotten this far with. Is the error referenced above a critical error, or, can it be ignored? Thanks. FYI - I copied and pasted the full header info display (TELUS Webmail's 'Message Source' display) into the beginning of the body of the open spam e-mail.

    TELUS Webmail & SpamCop reporting

    Thanks for posting Steven ... apparently, TELUS' Webmail interface is incapable of forwarding items as an attachment. I am able to look at the full header by utilizing the Message Source command from within an opened spam - however, it displays as a new IE window and could only be cut and pasted into the open spam, then forwarded to my established SpamCop reporting e-mail address. I haven't tested this yet as I have no new SPAMs to work with, however, I doubt I'll have to wait long. I'll let you and the forum know how I make out shortly. Thanks again for your help Steven.
  12. I am new to SpamCop and am here because my ISP (TELUS.net) 's spam filtering is just not effective enough to stem the tide of spam I am receiving. I refuse to give up my established e-mail addresses and would like to take my defences to the next level. I have adopted a protocol whereby I login to my ISP's (TELUS) Webmail interface where I can safely open and evaluate any e-mails I can't readily identify from the Inbox list as legitimate or spam. TELUS has a Webmail spam reporting mechanism, however, each individual spam must be opened to report it, involving 3 webpage refreshes per spam / report and 1 more to delete any given spam. I have lobbied TELUS to offer a batch spam reporting command from the Inbox page, however, so far my idea has gone un-implemented. In the meantime, I would like to participate in SpamCop's reporting system and am running into a problem. The SpamCop server wants the spam forwarded as an attachment and fails to recognize the spam if I simply forward spam from the opened spam at the TELUS Webmail interface to my established SpamCop reporting e-mail address. What to do to get SpamCop reporting to work without pulling any spam local to my machine? Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
