  1. Getting SOME of my spam that I am fwd'ing to spamcop returned via mailer-daemon with the 554 #5.3.0 Server Error. What do I do? Thanks.
  2. When I'm motivated, I go into my bulk folder of my free Yahoo account and fwd to spamcop a bunch of emails that are in there. Recently I've noticed a big increase in the spam in my bulk folder and have attempted to fwd some to spamcop as I always have as attachments. What has happened is that Yahoo or technical glitch is not allowing me to do so. Numerous emails back and forth haven't gotten the situation fixed yet. I get this message; "There was a problem: Your forwarded message could not be attached, because your mailbox is temporarily unavailable. Please try again in a few minutes. Your message has not been sent.", which been this way for a couple weeks. If I am REALLY motivated, I'll then have to cut and paste the email into the spamcop page which doesn't always get the links reported. Obviously, this is a really tedious process when you have 40+ spams to report. Anyone else having this problem? From my paid ATT/Yahoo account there is no problem at all doing this same thing. Eric
  3. Thanks Telarin, I tried that but the FWD's still won't go through. I made a new folder and move the spam in there and I can then FWD them with no impedance now.
  4. OK glad to know it's not just me AND that this started with others at about the same time as me. What does this portend for spam reporting from Yahoo acct's? I'll keep hammering at their "tech support" to get some kind of answer in the meantime. I tried their suggestion of saving the FWD in my Drafts folder and then sending from there, but when sent, they were suspiciously small (800 bits) AND afaik they never arrived at spamcop as I found no indication they ever arrived short of data or otherwise. For S+G's I tried moving them to a new folder and then tried to FWD from there. I was successful Take that lame Yahoo.
  5. I became annoyed with the volume of spam today and fwd'ed 50 or more in the manner I always do. Then when I came to my SC page, the site was down for maintenence. OK, some postponed vengence. Now that things are up and running again, there's no sign those spams were received as only 8 show up in the Recent report history. Are they gone never to be seen/reported?? I was reporting and then there were no more & it seemed like I was finished reporting way too soon! Thanks for any info! Eric

    Reports disappeared?

    My situation was different I think in that there was no report ever registered, AFAIK. 50+ fwd'ed to SC and 9 so far that I was able to follow through on. Perhaps it's out there waiting but just slowed WAY down because of the down time and that I was reporting while the site was down?

    The Ol' TNT Scam

    Although an email I received walks the fine line between spam and scam, I fwd'ed it to SC anyway since I wanted to know where it came from. SC can do a better job of that than me using Whois etc, and in most cases I hit "cancel" after finding out which Nigerian ISP the email came from. This usally confirms my suspicions so I can send them lovely insults! I hate scammers perhaps more than spammers...but I'm not sure! This time, as the scammer seems pretty slick in their email presentation and so on, I reported it with a note added to each address the scam/spam was being reported to. "scammer trying to rip off people using a non-existent deilvery company". This is the scam where upon enquiring about an item for sale online somewhere, the responder tells you to they are in England and "we need a safe way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after. I have found a way for us to complete the deal fast (3 days) and easy. The solution is a worldwide delivery company called TNT." Most of us know this is a scam but for the poor noob sod that doesn't, they stand to lose quite a bit of cash. After reporting the scammers email w/SC I received a personally addressed email from the Infortech Abuse Investigator, who was one of the reporting addresses this was reported to, sent to me from spamcop[at]devnull.spamcop.net, which I GUESS was fwd'ing the reponse from abuse[at]infortech.net. Now I don't mind that abuse[at]infortech.net has some inkling of who I am in this case, but I always thought that reported spams don't include my address. Otherwise I'd never report 95% of my spam as they all originate from .hu, .ru, .tr, .cn, .kr and so on. Personally I don't think ANY of those ISP's give a sh_t about spam or Spamcop reports as long as the spammers keep paying their bills and they are probably complicit with the spammers. Therefore I don't want these .ru, et al ISP's to know I am reporting spam to them. So how is it that abuse[at]infortech.net knew my name? Hello Eric, Thank you for taking the time to report this incident. We have notified the end user customer of this complaint with a demand to take immediate action to resolve this matter. Thanks again, Infortech Abuse Investigator Thanks for any insight here! Eric

    The Ol' TNT Scam

    Sorry I thought that most folks might not be able to access that, but then again I thought I'd seen postings w/folk's report page links so I went ahead. Anyway thanks for clearing that up! e

    The Ol' TNT Scam

    I didn't communicate w/them at all. Oops! My name is in the reporting prefs. No biggee. Wondered about that and also have it set to forward only replies from sentient people so must be a human responded. My report can be seen here I guess. http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrac...rtid=1973948365

    [Resolved] SpamCop is Down

    Hmm, I reported some spam this morning at 10-ish central time and still no response via email notices or on my spamcop page. The "Report Now" link has yet to show up. 12:35 PM here. Eric
  11. I've been using Spamcop for years. My wife wanted to report her spam too so I just signed her into Spamcop and she got her own account, PW, and "submit[at]spamcop" email addy. How come all her reports came to me? i.e., she reported a ton of spam, and all the notifications came to my reporting address. We're on the same IP, on a router. I checked my Spamcop account and her email address is NOT there. I'm glad she's starting to report her spam, but heck, I don't want to do all the work! Thanks! Eric
  12. It was the "auto fill" in Safari that remembered my reporting addy a mostly helpful function that backfired this time thanks for all your help! e
  13. OI! Sorry I just double checked the two reporting addresses and hers somehow IS the same! Boy I feel like a dork! Sorry about that. I have figured out that somehow my reporting addy was in HER address book (freakin auto fill) Sorry for my silliness. Eric
  14. OK, I must be missing something as my wife is reporting spam on her Spamcop acct. and the reports are all coming to me still, i.e. all her spamcop notifications are coming to the email address I USE for reporting spam to spamcop. I went into my wife's acct. and made sure that everything is set correctly as far as I could tell. Report Handling Options are set at default. Under Change Email address or name, under "Where would you like to receive email responses from your reports?" I clicked the save settings just to make sure her addy "takes" and it goes to a page with no acknowledgement of that. Mailhosts listed is a single addy, her yahoo address and it's under her name. My address/es are nowhere to be seen in her acct. BUT if I go to recent reports, it says "nothing found". Also her reporting address "submit_____[at]spam.spamcop.net is different than mine! Under Statistics>Source of Mail there are a lot of listings but I don't know if that's just hers or mine or what. On the spamcop page where she would click "Report Now" that never appears under her acct. Any help is appreciated to straighten this out! Eric
  15. Yes, I think cookies are a good place to start looking as I may have used her comp to report spam once or twice so I'll clean those. Yes she has her own comp and email addy (can u REALLY imagine having to share? ) "so if her submittals are coming back to you, then it would appear that you simply managed to re-assign your e-mail address to a 'new' reporting account (submit address)" I'll have to check HER submit addy and compare and make sure her acct. is totally separate. I did check my account and only my addresses are listed. Thanks for the help & sorry with such basic questions that came in at 12am! Eric

    Thought this was interesting....

    I didn't think it came from Spamcop, as the details in the report showed, but found it amusing that someone had forged a Spamcop addy. Was a new one on me! e

    Mail list blocked

    I belong to the Alt Photo Process list out of Canada and it is currently blocked from me and others receiving any mail from it. In other words, we aren't receiving emails from the group whether from an inadvertant submission by someone or someone else doing spam from there (i don't know much about this stuff). How do we get the photo list off the Spamcop BL list? The IP is I'm not an admin or in anyway associated with the Alt-Photo Process list...just a participant and I want to help them get back to normal. In the Spamcop BL page the IP comes up as, " listed in bl.spamcop.net ( Causes of listing System has sent mail to SpamCop spam traps in the past week (spam traps are secret, no reports or evidence are provided by SpamCop) Additional potential problems (these factors do not directly result in spamcop listing) Listing History In the past 592.4 days, it has been listed 3 times for a total of 3.5 days Other hosts in this "neighborhood" with spam reports" Eric Nelson
