  1. Sorry I was hoping I'd be able to respond before you, but you're quick off the mark! I have registered with spamcop's free service. I also found the mailhosts button and have hopefully set everything up properly for both of the mailhosts that I use. Here follows a rant that I wrote while you were overtaking me on the fastlane OK time for more apologies, I found the link. It's on the page you visit when you click the hyperlink for a web based spam report which is in the inital email that spamcop sends you when you sign up. .. however upon remembering that I'd read this 'sticky' at the start of this long winded affair I realised the source of my confusion. I'm of the opinion that complete and meaningful installation instructions should be in the one location. EVEN if it's for a service which doesn't incur any monetary charge.[free] (I'm not really into the idea of instructions being contained in forum threads in the first place... forums are so hard to organise/navigate, but's that's another discussion). quoting: "Warning: If you use this new system, you must complete the configuration process for all accounts where you receive spam. If you fail to complete the configuration for one of your legitimate mail hosts, you may cause SpamCop to attribute spam to it." To me, someone who speaks english as a first language, that reads to me that I should register all my email addresses or something "BAD" might happen - spamcop thinks I'M sending spam?! I take the meaning of attribute as to : "To regard as the work of a specified agent, place, or time." That's why I thought it imperative to register ALL my addresses irrespective of whether they were on the same mailhost. I feel that statement is misleading, it contains two conflicting sentences. However I'm clearly going to have to be a little more dilligent with my research I change my mind, this is displayed when you click the mailhosts button I mentioned: Add mailhost Please remember to register all your email accounts. If that isn't misleading, what the heck is? keep up the good work and thanks for your time. hope it's all worthwhile friend. alasdair
  2. Hi there, I'd written a long reply but forgot when I was restarting firefox [curse the tabs! no actually I love them :-) ]. here's my paraphrasing in action.... 1. Sorry for not spotting the answer to my question... 2. Maybe the instructions could have been a little clearer before & during the registration process... 3. How the heck do I find the link to the mailhosts registration system? I can't find it anywhere on your sitemap/home page/emails sent from the parser/page showing reports etc. 4. Have I messed everything up by attempting this when I didn't really have a clue to what was going on? (I'm used to having my hand held by websites these days!) 5. Where's the link? thansk for yoru time, hope someone's paying you for it.. alasdair
  3. Hi there, please can someone explain what I should do to register for the mailhosts system. Can someone also explain what it is that I'm missing if I DON'T register for it... I have six email addresses that I check everyday. some are personal, some work related. Noe of them are forwarded, all of them are sperate pop3 accounts. I use Outlook 2003 with each account listed. alasdair raga.wu uriny list these are all [AT]lapsuslinguae.co.uk then there's alasdair info these 2 are all [AT]ginezbukov.com Not all are affected by spam (thankfully!) but I would like them all registered to use the FREE Spamcop spam reporting service. Can all of these be sent to the one spamcop forwarding address? If not, are there any practical ways to automate forwarding of spam to the corect email address? please let me know, I'm finding this a tad confusing. thanks, Alasdair
