  1. At what address? I tried both deputies@admin.spamcop.net and service@admin.spamcop.net, with no response. Mail address given in the mailhost pinned instructions (service@spamcop.net) bounces with "User doesn't exist".
  2. How do you add mailhosts when your email address domain is actually hosted on Office 365? For example, my email address is first.last@company.com. But mail sent to this address (via smtp.company.com) actually is rerouted from @company.com via some other domains and eventually to an Exchange server at outlook.com. When I try the mailhost configuration, it fails with error "The email sample you submitted for first.last@company.com appears to traverse more than one domain. Please ensure that you configure each mailhost individually and in order." This is is true, but I there's nothing I can do about that. I can't configure outlook.com because I don't have an outlook.com email address. And there is no way for me to receive email without it being forwarded along the server chain.
  3. I just re-sent, using a different SMTP server. I've learned before that sending spam submissions through Apple's (iCloud/MobileMe/Mac.com) SMTP server doesn't work; it thinks I'm sending spam and silently eats the message. I reported it to Apple, telling them they need to whitelist email going to SpamCop. But they never fixed it, so I know to route all the spam submissions through a different provider. So now it appears it thinks a mailhost problem report is also spam. Arrgh.
  4. I need to get a mailhost issue fixed, that is blocking reporting of all spam. But messages to service[at]spamcop.net bounce, and there was no response to messages to service[at]admin.spamcop.net or deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net. So now what?
  5. Sent to deputies, they said that they were having temporary mail issues at the service[at] addresses. So they're still good.
  6. Is there a new procedure for reporting mailhost issues? A message I sent on 8/3 to service[at]spamcop.net bounced ("User doesn't exist"). I resent it to service[at]admin.spamcop.net, which worked previously. That didn't bounce but there has been no reply.
  7. Spoke too soon. I tried doing a submission while also CC'ing myself, and I'm not getting that either. Now I'm really confused. Here's the results: 1. Submitted to SpamCop from FastMail via FastMail webmail through Apple's iCloud SMTP: SpamCop never received, no response. 2. Submitted to SC from desktop via iCloud SMTP: SC never received, no response 3. Submitted to SC from desktop via iCloud with CC of FastMail address: SC never received, and I didn't get the CC either 4. Submitted to SC from desktop via FastMail SMTP with CC of FastMail address: SC never received and I didn't get the CC and yet, all other email I send, including some test messages to these addresses, are working fine. This doesn't make any sense. It doesn't seem to be the SMTP server filtering it, because I tried two servers. It can't be FastMail filtering the response, because the Report link never activates, showing that SC isn't getting it. But then why don't I get the CC? It can't be local software blocking it, because FastMail webmail didn't work on a completely different machine. ... more testing ... OK, I think I'm getting blocked by two different SMTP servers, in two different ways: 1. I think the iCloud SMTP server thinks my SpamCop mail submission is spam, and is dropping it on the send. 2. I think the FastMail SMTP server is blocking any mail sent "From" a different address; meaning it is rejecting it because I was sending it from my iCloud address. I finally got it to work by using FastMail SMTP and sending from a Fast Mail address. WHAT A PAIN. This is exactly why it was much simpler to use submit spam reports from the SpamCop email system.
  8. I meant, none of the steps were a match, so yes, I'll need to report it.
  9. Today I forwarded (as attachment) spam to my personal spam submission address, but it went into a black hole: nothing was received back from the SpamCop AutoResponder, and it never showed up on the Report spam page. I tried it twice, on completely different spam, with same no-result. This used to work, as of October 3rd. Is it just me or is this a widespread problem?
  10. Several SpamCop.net links now just result in "Unknown action": Past Reports (http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=histmenu) Preferences > Report Handling Options (http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=showadvanced) Preferences > Add Fuel (http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=paymenu) Is this a general issue, or is it related to the recent account changes? I'm wondering why the previous SpamCop Email subscribers are even seeing the Add Fuel item; I thought we were supposed to still have premium account access.
  11. In Word, replace all " ^p" with "^p". That removes one trailing space. Keep hitting replace all until Word says it can't find anything more to replace.
  12. Here's one way to add the comma, in Excel:Add a formula to the cell adjacent to your first whitelist entry: =A1&"," Fill that forumula down the column to the end of your list. (Or just double-click the fill handle; I learned that trick last week.) Now we've got the commas appended, but they are in a formula. We want to save only one column in the .CSV; we can't get rid of the column without the commas because it will break the formula. So select the column with the commas, and then paste it elsewhere, but paste as Values Only. Now you can delete the other columns, and save as .csv. The method in Word would be to first get the addresses out of the table, and then replace all ^p with ,^p.
  13. Copy the column in Word, paste into Excel, save as .CSV. It also works to paste the table from the whitelist page directly into Excel.
