    [Resolved] E-mail not being picked up

    No. The issue was never brought up before. When I see 30 pieces of mail in my held folder and before I click on the report button, I do verify that I am reporting spam (and I have verified a few reports sent at random). On the mail that gets though the filter that I have to report manually, I do verify the parser results and there have been no related issues. Wrong. I set this up a while back. Additionally, I was not aware some changes to my ISP (i.e. When I reported this problem to intergate, I got a response from academicplanet O.o). I am trying to make the necessary corrections now. I believe you might be correct. I am working on this now.
  2. Absolutely irresponsible! Not only are you "rejecting some messages," but it looks to me like you are rejecting all messages!!! :angry: Everything is now going directly to my forwarding address. Thank you for spreading a little bit of sunshine. And now it looks like I can't even forward the email for reporting to submit.<code removed>[at]spam.spamcop.net Another bright ray of sunshine.

    Is there any way to get around this? Thanks.

    [Resolved] E-mail not being picked up

    So I finally decide to check the settings. Everything looks to be fine... except for what I saw on the POP configuration page. The server, name & PW were all correct, but there was an Error Count of 285 with a Last Error message of "Cannot contact server." Bah! So it looks to be a different problem from what I originally expected. So who is the party who can correct this? SC or my ISP? I guess I can contact both. Thanks for the assistance.

    [Resolved] E-mail not being picked up

    Sorry if I said or implied that. SC doesn't pick-up anything any longer (in any folder). The only folder I ever needed to check in the past was Held Mail because all the good mail was retrieved using Outlook Express. POP - Anything directed to me at SC or Intergate goes directly to SC. At this point, spam is left in Held Mail & the good stuff is forwarded to another address I access with Outlook Express. It was a really beautiful system the way it worked for the past year or so. Not sure what could have changed or how, but it's worth a look.

    [Resolved] E-mail not being picked up

    I might as well stop using it. It is not picking up or filtering any email. I use 3 email addresses (i.e. A[at]intergate, B[at]spamcop & C[at]intergate). Everyone emails me at A & everything sent to A goes to B. If filtered properly, like it usually is, then the good email is forwarded to C and all the garbage is left in my Spamcop Held Mail box. Now, when I log on to SC it goes directly to Held Mail where I check what was filtered. Nothing there (usually 10-30 spam email). So I wonder if everything just passed through the filter process & was sent my 3rd address (C[at]intergate) - no. My email is not getting picked-up by SC at all. **************** Since I am having to bypass SC to get my email, I end up with all the spam. Whenever I forward the spam, to the appropriate SC address for reporting (sorry I actually used it last time), it is sent back to me as rejected. Hope I summed it up a little better for you. Thanks for the assistance.
  8. I am starting to get settled with what I need SC to help me with, but I guess I can't use Outlook Express to send email using my SC address? Can anyone help me here?

    No Spamcop SMTP?

    Okay then. A point of clarification, dbiel. 1) My new outgoing address via OE is now my spamcop address. 2) My "from" & "reply to" addresses are the same. 3) Yes. I know SC SMTP is not available for email client programs. (I did sort of point that out in my first post.) I thought I already said these things, but here they are again. Make whatever deductions you want. No more hints! (We can save "security vs. service" for another day and another thread, dbiel, but thanks again for your help.)

    Too funny! I will think about what you said, though. Thanks.

    No Spamcop SMTP?

    Yeppers! You are quite right about the SC SMTP issue. I'm still disappointed about that because I can get SMTP through my ISP along with 100 email addresses, filtering, internet connection, etc. for 1/3rd the price. Major Bummer! (Granted: SC has a good service to offer, but for the price, SMTP would be nice.) Nope. My "from" & "reply to" addresses are the same. As I said in my last post, it works the way I want it to work now. Although I am thinking about scrapping OE... just thinking about it... for web email... hmmm... still thinking... Thank you, though, for your assistance.

    No Spamcop SMTP?

    Thanks for the comments. I believe I actually do have everything finally set to my preference now. My spamcop mail & all other email are now filtered through spamcop and are now forwarded to a new private (never to be revealed) address through my OE. My new outgoing address via OE is now my spamcop address (with a new digital ID already assigned). Tah dah! Once a day or every other day I can go to the web client to quick report the "herd" of spam needing to be "culled." (Single click action for multiple spam email.) As for vulnerabilities and viruses directed at OE... I have always been able to defeat them (and I have been through some big attack sequences). If spamcop is doing its job correctly in filtering my email, then I now have an added level of protection (right?). Thanks again for the help and suggestions. Any additional advice/comments is/are, as always, much appreciated.

    No mail going to "Held" folder

    I have now removed the "tag" option to see if spam will be "held." I will see what happens in the morning. Okay then. Thanks. Aye. Thanks again. Yes. Thank you. The pinned posts for email & reporting lacked the further clarification I sought (although, I might have missed a topic). Thank you for stepping up to the plate, Steven. Your comments are much appreciated.
  14. I have decided to become a paying client and have set up everything the way I believe I would like. I have opted to select all spam filters/options, but nothing is automatically going into the "Held Mail" folder and nothing has ever been "tagged" as spam. I have had to manually move spam from the "Inbox" to the "Held" folder. If everything works okay and a message in my "Inbox" is spam, then should I select the "Report as spam" option or move it to the "Held" folder where I can send a quick report for multiple messages? I'm not sure of the difference. Also, (and I know this is a different thread topic,) when I do a "quick report," do I need to do anything additional after I click that button? Is all the spam reporting for multiple e-mail messages done with that single button click? Thanks in advance for your time, assistance & patience. edit: I have read through some posts & help files for clarification. I am asking for assistance because I could not find what I was looking for.
  15. I am kind of new to spam reporting (and SpamCop), but I have a basic idea about reading and understanding headers. Question: Should I just let the SpamCop Web Reporting take care of everything or should I manually report to other ISP's I believe SpamCop might be missing? More questions: Are there some ISP's SC will not report to? Is there a specific forum to provide feedback for additional reporting info? Thanks in advance.

    Is SpamCop missing some ISP's in reporting?

    Thank you, Miss Betsy. Good additional resources you have listed there. I am still prowling those sites.

    Is SpamCop missing some ISP's in reporting?

    Thanks, been there. I have been compairing various parsing & reporting tools for effectiveness. SC is clearly the most "hands free" while allowing the reportee a good number of options to choose from. True-it gives a good idea of who and why, but not always why not. The "why nots" shown are really obvious (i.e. my anti-virus stamp on all incoming email, forged/fake data, some open relays). I would still like to see some kind of listing of actual non-reportable domains with a note as to why reports are not sent (if that is possible). Hehe! This forum category would be a good place for a "sticky" post of domains & why SC does not report to them (i.e. spamming hosts/ pro-spam ISP's/biased against SC/bad experience with SC... etc.) This one itsy-bitsy teeny-tiny request would be a really nice tool for all SC users. This info I'm looking for might already exist somewhere out there and I just don't know how to find it (if so, can you please show me?). If not, don't you think this would really be helpful info to know up front? Thanks again!

    Is SpamCop missing some ISP's in reporting?

    Thanks for your respnse. You really have answered my questions, even though non-specific. I believe I understand the reporting somewhat better now as I have just gone through another batch of 15-20 pieces of spam. It just bothers me a little when I see some reports just going to devnull.spamcop.net and nowhere else. I understand it's worthless to report to spammer hosts & pro-spammer sites, but can't we just report up the traceroute chain for some action? I didn't bring a Tracking URL with me to use as an example, but a generic domain I'm sure you're familiar with seeing is wholesale(somethin' or other - heh). I know they have some reporting addresses, but use different domains (sounds kind of fishy, huh?). If I see something that really strikes me as a "more" reportable example, I'll come back and post the tracker. I guess what I would really like to see is a list of non-reportable service providers (due to being pro-spam or actual spamming hosts). Thanks again Wazoo!
