  1. Thanks for the suggestions MIG. I turned last month to silent report where there is no option to add recipients, but if I go back to normal reporting I will use your suggestions. Have a nice year too, and I wish you good hunting
  2. Good suggestion for starting 2019, thank you MIG.

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    Wow, excellent suggestions and templates, thank you petzl and mojorisin.
  4. Hi, this is my first post here. Receiving from 50 to 100 spams per day originating from the same spammer, all having a subject similar to "I Instafu** Request is Pending", "Eager to Hookup", "I Missed Hookup Call", "Waiting to Hookup", etc., and sender name always starting with capital A, for example "Alana", "Abia", "Ada" etc., I registered to SpamCop.net since two weeks and reported since that day all those spams I received. This spammer seems to have registered almost as many different email addresses as spams I receive, by almost as many different email providers. Hence stopping him seems a bit desperate, and I am now wondering if it's worth spending each day more or less 15 minutes for posting those reports. What do you think, should I continue or just do nothing and wait it stops for some other reason?

    Yeah, indeed I hesitated, so I crossed my fingers while writing and it worked: still nothing 12 hours later (I'll use epsom salt that time).

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    FWIW, 3 weeks later... those porn spams have suddenly stopped. Not sure why (could it be the thousands of reports sent?). This unexpected silence is scaring and I fear now some retaliation! (I haven't used the "mole" option in the SpamCop preferences, only the "Obscure identifying information" for which I read it may not be that much obscure).
  7. Hi, that's surely a very stupid question, but concretely what are the changes after Mailhost configuration? I am currently using SpamCop by posting reports in the "Report spam" section, will that change after proceeding to Mailhost configuration via the "Add first hosts" button? Will reports be easier? Faster?
  8. Thank you so much Lking for your valuable help, everything is clear now! I'll proceed now to Mailhost configuration. EDIT: so I'm done and everything looks fine (though I didn't see the [Quick Report] alternative). I'm just reporting an obsolete link at the end of the Mailhost process which brought me to "The page you requested does not exist". The link is http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showforum=7
  9. thank you Lking. Just to make sure I understand correctly: - when you say "you must review the results more carefully to assure you do not sent reports to part of your normal email processing system", you mean essentially check that the recipients listed in "Report spam to:" while reporting a spam are correct (do not include for example my own email provider)? - once Mailhost is configured, the reporting process is the same for me? (copy paste and send report)

    Thanks MIG, inspiring indeed. Again this Alibaba polluters champion...

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    MIG, I like your warped sense of humour, yes, brave and likely idiot. To keep you and mojorisin up to date: I did write to support@liaisontorride.com, support of the porn site that is linked by the spams. I got a reply telling me they didn't have me in their data base. I replied and provided an example of said spam, so that they can check those links. And each time I report a new spam to SpamCop , I add support@liaisontorride.com to the Report User Notification field. Let's see what comes out in the next days.

    Hmm, I'm sure it is funny, but not sure where exactly (might be missing some reference)

    Wow, one single report, is that what is called happiness? OK, thank you mojorisin, I will have a try writing to those supports. In case of success, I won't fail telling you.

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    I went through the steps you described and found the contact support@liaisontorride.com. It is not the same email Support@festivusmedia.com´╗┐ that you found, which makes me think that each spam will lead to a different contact via the long registration procedure you mentioned, consuming a lot of time. So I hesitate... EDIT: I just added support@liaisontorride.com to the Report spam list (in the "Re: User Notification (Notes)" field) while reporting a new spam at SpamCop. I hope it's a good idea.

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    I just submitted four reports with the same linked porn site: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6503660317zc4b08102f61840c17f47620348e8eb7ez https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6503660488zf60ee115e39d191a207971f9099440f2z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6503660619z349119165d4af690c9968fd18f837297z https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6503660634z23b4d9956724cff00ef1a83181d9072dz Thank you for your help mojorisin.

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    As you suggested, yesterday I unsubscribed - with no effects - from one porn site linked by the spams I receive. Today I checked again that porn site on https://urlscan.io who found no less than 2778 structurally similar pages! I won't have the courage to unsubscribe from all those sites. Main IP 149.129.243.34 is located in Singapore and belongs to CNNIC-ALIBABA-CN-NET-AP Alibaba (China) Technology Co., Ltd., CN. Seems hopeless to fight against such a giant.

    Thank you MIG for your feedback, good to know and encourages me to continue reporting.

    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    Many thanks mojorisin. Your alternative solution looks a bit frightening, but I will keep it in mind if I see zero success with my current reports. Thank you also for the Krebs on security article, I will take a close look at it.

    Thank you Lking for your reply. OK for the karma suggestion, I will continue reporting, in the hope that others are also reporting those spams and some IPs fall in the SCBL.
