    Two people with email accounts at GVTC.com report that emails they send to me are being returned as not able to be delivered / failure. Is SpamCop.net blocked by the admins at GVTC.com? Please help.

    Spamcop Alternatives?

    Please keep coming the suggested alternatives. I've signed up on GMail.com. I am looking at Fastmail.FM, which looks promising. I first will purchase my own domain (firstname-lastname.com) so I can begin to isolate my email address from my email provider, which frankly I should have done long ago. I never figured this would happen.

    Spamcop Alternatives?

    I like reading my email online [at] SpamCop. I also have lots of saved emails organized in folders. I hope they change their mind. My spamcop email address is all over the planet. I created a GMail account. Ugh. They're very proud of not having "Folders" and you can't turn off "keep a copy of sent mail in Sent Mail". Where else are y'all going to go?

    Update: Outage

    You know what I call 24 hours of unexpected lack of access to my emails? A vacation. I just checked. Emails are starting to come in.

    Update: Outage

    I seriously doubt that any outages here are planned. At any rate, I'm happy with Spamcop and I'm sticking around.
  6. There are empty emails coming in and piling up in my Held Mail - they can't be deleted. They say "invalid address" and "no subject".
  7. good idea. I've tried it in Mozilla Firefox and in Chrome. It works in neither. I no longer use Firefox (Brendan Eich and the anti-Proposition 8 jihad). I'll try in IE (ugh) next time. thanks
  8. Test emails are not in coming either. Something bad has happened. Problem never works. I get an error: Invalid address spec. Unmatched quote or bracket (<>) I have brought this up before and it has never been fixed.
  9. Now my inbox is loading with the specious "invalid address / no subject".
  10. Here is a question for all you long-time Spamcoppers who know your Spamcop "Name Expansion" inside and out: Where does Spamcop store those names and email addresses? I know I have my address book with my contacts, etc. But Spamcop is saving old "names/email addresses" in some additional place. Why do I say that? If in the TO: field I put an ambiguous name (i.e. multiple possible resolution/expansions) and click on the "Expand Names" icon on the Send window, Spamcop will dredge up all possible names/email addresses and put a chooser/drop-down on the TO: field letting me select how to expand that name. So far so fabulous. But the names/email addresses? Not all those email addresses are from my address book. Some of them are very old names/email addresses from way back "in the day". I'm confused. Are these being stored in some http history place? Or some cookie that Spamcop maintains? Can you help? Teach me the voodoo of that Spamcop voodoo that Spamcop does so well (so well I don't understand it).
  11. Hi Brother Spamcop'ers, I am moving to Chrome and away from Firefox. My Spamcop address Lists do not resolve. The email send window just sits there and does not fill out the address TO: line. Is the TO: behavior implemented in java scri_pt? Is there some way to get Chrome to behave and to resolve the TO: line? Any Chrom'ers out there cross this Rubicon? mucho thanks, Chuck
  12. Oh wow! Check this out, this works: On each Spamcop "New Message" window there is a clickable icon titled "Expand Names". Use this instead of the "auto-expansion" feature (i.e. when you tab from the TO: field into the CC: field). Fill in your TO:, CC: and BCC: fields with the names that Spamcop has always auto-expanded. Now click on "Expand Names". There you go. Pretty as a picture.
  13. By the way, List and address expansion in the TO: field works in IE (Internet Explorer) and Firefox but does not work in Chrome v 33 (latest as of today). Also, it does not work in Safari, the Apple browser.
  14. Webmail is down again. No web, no SMTP, nada.
  15. Hang in there. This is very, very rare. I've been in bondage to Spamcop for several years and I can tell you that I'm not going anywhere. ouch. Now that's going to leave a mark :-)
  16. No access via imap.spamcop.net Webmail says inbox is empty Mail is down.
  17. good points. The info has been forwarded, including the problem "Problem" button. Thanks.
  18. I have hit my daily limit of outgoing emails. I have a group alias I use to send/copy emails to about 15 recipients. If I send emails to this group alias, does this count as 15 toward my daily limit? I'm thinking yes because I hit my limit today (which I almost never do) while sending to this group several times. Ugh.
  19. Spamcop Admin(s). The "Problem" report button on Webmail is broken. It (re)forms the email address and then validates its own reformed email address and then refuses to forward a problem report because it doesn't like its own email format. Sigh. So, you can't report a problem via Webmail front end. Please raise my daily limit from 75 to 150. Or email me and tell me why not. This is a huge PIA. Thanks.
  20. There is a limit. The default can be changed by admins. I believe it is a Webmail limit, not a POP limit (I can send emails from my IPhone while blocked by Webmail. The question about emails to groups still stands as not answered.
  21. So, I am a long, long-time Spamcop user (cherrick[at]spamcop.net) and now that I am starting a new small business, I would like to use Spamcop for the business emails. How do I do that? Basically, do I proceed in this order: 1. Purchase a domain name (ex: CottageOnFM1296.com) 2. sign up with Spamcop (pay money,etc) 3. acquire several business email addresses (ex: info[at]CottageOnFM1296.com, chuck[at]cottageOnFM1296.com, wife[at]cottageOnFM1296.com, etc) 4. set the passwords and use Webmail to begin the emails. I'm assuming that I buy the domain name from someone other than Spamcop, such as Netsol.com, correct? With whom do I begin to interact at Spamcop? Note that I do not want emails with "spamcop.net" in the domain name. Thanks!
  22. I can't send emails. I get a webmail error message telling me that I have exceeded my limit of 400 recipients. I have not sent 400 emails (not even 40). Is this something broken in webmail? - cherrick[at]spamcop.net PS - I clicked on the "report problem" button, and tried to report this as a problem. The link page refuses to submit, complaining about bad formatting and bad angle brackets. Something else is broken.
