    Spamcop Alternatives?

    Ah, SpamCop, we hardly knew ye! Actually I've been a very satisfied user of SpamCop for a very long time. I seem to remember that I was using them in the 90's? I do know for sure that I've been using them forever and a day and my use for them was to keep the unGodly from spamming me to death. I guess that even SpamCop Paradise may not last for ever. I just want a mail setup that will be there, is easily controlled (by me) and modifiable and that has top notch filtering abilities. Also one that isn't getting too baroque with what's getting shifted where, when, why and to who. My solution is this - Slowly migrate everything away from my existing array of email addresses. Use my own domain and already existing address for all of my correspondence. Have my domain provider forward everything to my ISP's POP/SMTP setup. Train the heck out of Mailwasher Pro. - not as nice as having SpamCop being there but I'll at least be taking back a lot of control of my email fate at last. And simplifying things.
  2. Hi. (I did look through the FAQs, couldn't get anything usable with the keywords I had to use in searching, either) I removed mail forwarding from my Spamcop account for a few days. Mail was filtered during this time and accumulated in my Spamcop inbox. I subsequently added back in an email address to which I wished Spamcop to resume forwarding mail to. That worked fine, Spamcop is doing exactly what it has always done so well for so long, new incoming mail is being filtered and sent on to the target email account. What I cannot figure out is how to get the email - that accumulated in the Spamcop inbox during the "no forward" period - to be forwarded automatically to the target account - it sits in the Spamcop inbox and is not being picked up for forwarding (which is logical enough, really.) What is the accepted and usual way of dealing with this non-moving mail? Foward each item by hand or is there a known way of kicking it out automatically? TIA, Lee

    Topica and SpamCop

    Okay, folks - this one's a perennial but searching here didn't yield a usable answer... I wish to subscribe to certain lists that are run under Topica. Topica will *not* let me subscribe to any group until my SpamCop email address is verified as part of my Topica membership. Email from Topica (which gives me a web page address to go to in order to verify my address) in response to my request for verification is *not* showing up in my SpamCop mailbox in any form. I have turned off all mail filtering. Repeating the same actions using a test email address (non-Spamcop) works fine. It's only the spamcop.net address that fails to get the verification email. This situation has existed for quite some time (a year or better, IIRC) - it's only now that I'm irritated enough to start doing something about it. Anyone? Thank you, Lee
