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).
"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:
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.
