    Blocking Emails

    Ellen, thank you for the reply. I have forwarded it and Steve T's translation to KDSI and they are researching the problem.

    Blocking Emails

    IIRC IP 66.82.50.1 is the IP that direcpc funnels everyone thru -- they do not stamp a received header for the connecting user so this IP gets listed from time to time. Would everyone but Ellen please ignore me. Ellen: I have a oneway satellite system in my home office. I dial up to KDSI and Direcpc is the download (satellite). So when I attempt to send an email using Outlook 2003, I receive the message from Spamcop that you quoted earlier. At this time we are unable to send any outgoing emails. We are able to receive emails via the download from Direcpc without problem. How can direcpc be the problem when the sent email goes through the KDSI dial up and the KDSI supported domain name? Does direcway affect outgoing email eventhough it is only the uplink? I really feel that spamcop needs to become proactive in helping us find the solution as it is falsely blocking my emails. I use the same domain name based email from my business office using a high speed fiber optic line and I am not being blocked by spamcop. Do you have an email address or can someone at spamcop help me directly via telephone. We need to solve this problem and neither direcway or KDSI knows what is going on. Thank you.

    Is a one way satellite system unique? Dial up and satellite download? Perhaps I am prototype of direcpc and no one else has this system, or perhaps you understood the description of my system as well as I understood the judge's ruling? I find the many spamcop supporters that opt out by just labelling me as ranter humorous and irresponsible - a sad reflection on the user of the product. Perhaps one day when their email is shut down by some outside source that they do not control or understand, rather than find solutions they will be treated the same. Of course I am upset. My email is being blocked by spamcop and I am not sending spam, I am a legitimate user - sending occassional emails. It sounds as if many of the users of this product believe that all are the devil and no one could ever be innocently hurt by the product. What comes around goes around.

    Interesting write up. I am not a spammer. I am a business person trying to do business using the net. As I stated before, if it is happening to me - I am willing to bet there are a lot of others having this happen. I support any group that tries within reasonable bounds to stop spam. Not at the cost of my ability to use the net - it would be a bit self defeating. "Throwing out the baby with the bath water". You may note that the judge ordered significant changes be instituted by Spamcop and it appears that the Spammer was put in place not by its case, but by its failure to file documents in a timely manner. What ever the outcome, the only winner will be the attorneys billing hours on either side. Unless Spamcop has probono help at its side, I suggest that they take complaints such as my extremely seriously so as not to incurr needless negative publicity or in the worst case legal bills. Legitimate users such as myself have no interest in wasting their time or money on litigation - but if I or others can not use the interenet due to erroneous blocking by Spamcop the alternatives start to look dismal.

    IIRC IP 66.82.50.1 is the IP that direcpc funnels everyone thru -- they do not stamp a received header for the connecting user so this IP gets listed from time to time. I appreciate the comment as my dial up is my domain and email provider and I connect to them through a backbone in my office and I have never had spamcop trouble with this in my office - only in the home office where Direcpc is the down link. If I am sending email from the home office via the dial up provider, how can direcpc come into play as they only function as the down link (I have a oneway satellite system for the home office)? I am only receiving the block when I try to send emails, not download?

    Wazoo, Thank you for the suggestions. Unlike most folks on this site, I do not have the time to spend hours on technical issues. I run outlook 2003. From my home computer. Direcway is the download service provider and I have a dial up uplink. I have had spamblock block my emails on and off for many weeks now. I think most of the folks on this site seem to of lose sight of the fact that there is another world out there were people have other jobs and responsibilities. Not just teching out on a spam blocking site. Part of being a responsible site is making sure that your system doesn't target innocent users. I find being unable to send out emails much more damaging than receiving spam. For me Spamcop "throws the baby out with the bath water". I would not be at this site if the few emails I send from my home office every day were not being block. As for the few that state my traffic has increased....again think about the average user. I send a few emails one night and then not for a few or several days. Of course it would appear that my email traffic has increased. So the spamcop system shuts me down because of this. I do not understand the how spamcop evaluates or blocks traffic, but my "rant" is relevant. If enough innocent "idiots" like me out there keep getting shut down by the spamcop agenda soon spamcop will have problems on its hands. This is not a threat, it is a reality. It is not incumbent upon me to solve spamcop's problems; spamcop is invading upon my right to send email for business purposes. I am a consultant and real estate developer and not being able to work out of my home office is damaging my business. Anyone on this site can be as cynical as they want about me, but if it is happening to me, it is happening to others and if spamcop doesn't solve its issues, the issues will come back to haunt the company.
  8. I am sending emails from my home office and I am receiving the following error. This has been consistent and longer than 24 hours - weeks. I am a business person trying to work. I find this extremely invasive. I really do not care what your reasons are for having me on your system. If I am not removed I will seek out others and help with a class action suit to bring this type of indiscriminate blocking down. I do not have the know how or the time to figure out why your site is stopping me from sending out emails. I hope this can be forwarded to someone at tech in spamcob. Get me the hell off your site and let me conduct my day to day business. I am in real estate, do not send out emails for advertisement, only for business communication. amm Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
