    Simple Instructions

    I also use firefox. without issue.
  2. Looks to me like your email provider is "preventing" you from sending spam. In the past this has been caused by things as simple as your ISP's filter seeing the word spam or identifying your attachments as spam, which of course they are! You need to talk to your email provider and explain why you are sending spam to spamcop and get them to change their system parameters.

    Website wordpress

    The original post is off topic for this forum. the link was broken so as not to promote the site. Later: The same member came back and posted additional links to the same website. Enough is enough and so the poster was restricted from posting and ALL their post were hidden. (which is why my post is just hanging out here.)

    Unblock my IP?

    As you found your IP has a good reputation and does not appear to be on any block list. When I try to follow the "spamcop" link in the message it is not a valid link Unfortunately some ISP have a standard error message referencing SpamCop long after they stop using SCBL to filter incoming email. You need to contact the recipient of your email or their ISP. There is no credible indication that your ISP is on the SCBL. The SCBL is dynamic and without additional spam being reported an IP will automatically be removed from the list after 24 hrs.

    Hi Spamcop, Please Unblock

    You can check the reputation of the IPs yourself at https://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=map I notice that two of the IPs (50.31.x.x) have a poor reputation and are on one or more BL. looking at that neighborhood I see that outbound-mail.sendgrid.net does have a sending spam problem, Current and long term. But I am not clear if you are having trouble receiving email which is a problem you can resolve by adjusting the email setting in you CPanel so emails are not blocked. If you are having trouble with the emails you send being blocked you need to talk to your ISP about the IP being used to send email. If your emails are using a shared IP you may be suffering from the reputation of others using the same IP. IF no more spam are reported to SpamCop and no more emails are received by spam traps, an IP will automatically be removed from the SCBL. However, It seems these IPs have more than a casual problem.
  6. Just to be clear, I am a volunteer and do not officially speak for SpamCop. The spam report you received does contain a copy of the offending email (most likely with the destination address obscured). As you can understand some who report spam would not want their email address given to the "spammer" in fear of confirmation that someone looks at spam sent to the address, or fear of retaliation. the spam report was sent to you as administrator, as a tool for your use. To me it would seem your response to a single report, vs a pattern of reports, a bit harsh. If this was a single report for this client it would provide an opportunity to discuss with the client proper double-opt-in email list. Of course I an not suggesting how you should run your business. I am suggesting how to use data provided by SpamCop. The SpamCop Block List, which is the primary purpose of SpamCop, is based of several, relative current, spam reports NOT a single report. For details see What is the SpamCop Blocking List (SCBL)? scroll down to "SCBL Rules'
  7. I don't know you. Both are possible. 😁
  8. That is much better At the bottom of the report is the bad news. "Report would be sent to network-abuse{AT}google{DOT}com" If you do a local search (tool top right of each screen) you will find several related post about google frustration. If memory serves there are also several suggestions for additional actions you could take, with variable results.
  9. @denbyhank you for trying to provide a Tracking URL. The Report id can only be seen by you. The Tracking URL can be found either in the at the top of the reporting page or in the email notification received from SC if you submitted the spam as an attachment. an example would look like
  10. @mgolden as you may have noticed, spammers do visit this forum. It can be assumed they scrap email addresses they find. I tried to remove your wife's email from your post. You did provide the tracking URL, thank you, so there was no point to including the header of the spam (which exposed your wife's email) in your post There does seem to be some network issues right now. I also just got a 500 error. Try later to update your mailhost..

    SpamCop says it's too old, it's not

    If you search for "Tracking URL" (including the quotes) using the search tool, top right of each page, you will find 112 local references to "Tracking URL" that may be more helpful than a internet wide search.

    SpamCop says it's too old, it's not

    As others suggested, a Tracking URL would be more helpful. In addition to the offending email others can see what the parser did. When others follow the Tracking URL SC redacts the email removing you email so you don't have to. By not including the raw email in the forum, its content is not crawled by bots and indexed giving visibility to the spammer.

    Three Ways to Report spam

    We have tried. In most browsers you will see that SCBL is underlined. if you slowly mouse over SCBL a small window will appear. HTH

    OVH.Net spam ?

    $$$$ The US Congress is asking the same question. The answer is "Their business model." The real question is how to control the problem in a open society.

    Is there a SpamCop Outage

    That sounds like a security/permissions setting.

    Can SpamCop be used for...

    Did you read https://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/14.html? Scroll down to Messages which may be reported: I understand your frustration. Every once in a while one of my domains cycle through the spammer's list of forged "FROM:" or "REPLY:" Although the admin of the domain receiving the original spam must not have a clue about the difference between FROM: and the IP address of the real source, reporting their invalid bounce messages my get their attention. If you are nice you could include a note in the spam Report explaining the difference.

    Reporting spam has no effect

    https://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/297.html scroll down to SCBL rules.
  19. That should work. Or goto <Browse> <Staff> and PM Richard
  20. The system obviously does not like your attachment. You can recover the tracking URL by logging into your reporting account and clicking on the <Past Reports> tab This will list "Report Numbers? when you select the correct report the Tracking URL will be part of the next screen.
  21. "What we have here is a failure to communicate" An example of a tracking URL is https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6634628358z460dafae0c54205ace1fe027dc2ff311z This can be found near the top of the screen after you submit the spam. If you submit by email the tracing URL is the link sent to you to review and complete/submit your spam. In my example above you will see the tracking URL on the third line. IF we had access to the tracking URL someone could cut and past the body of the spam into google translate and see why your domain is in the body.
  22. If I understand the issue correctly without a Tracking URL another thing to consider is, if your email and domain are on the same host and IP. As you know spamcop looks at IPs not domain names directly. Having your domain listed in a spam is odd. spam I have received, even those requesting to buy one of my domains, don't include the domain in the body. In any case your point is well taken. If the domain in the body of the spam is the same as a domain in your mailhost configuration, the solution should be relative straight forward. I would suggest a post in New Feature Request with a Tracking URL as an example to illustrate your request/suggestion.

    New spammer trick?

    with the double header I think things have gotten confused. @gnarlymarley without knowing @Spamnophobic 's 16 digit code "they" could not have sent to the reporting address. UNLESS they replied to a spam report with the following sequence: @Spamnophobic a spam (email #1) and reported it to spamcop (email #2) spamcop sent a spam report to the the source (email #3) the spammer/his ISP... received email #3 and auto responded (?) with email #4 sent to a coded address at spamcop spamcop received email #4 send to a coded mail box associated with the spam report (email #3) and forwarded the email to @Spamnophobic @Spamnophobic received email #4 which has the spamcop connection hidden and thinking it is spam @Spamnophobic reports email #4 The reporting of email #4 generates the tracking URL above. It has been a really long time sense I have received a reply to an spam report. Looking at the full email in the tracking URL there are spamcop.net ironpost references in both headers (at the top and bottom of the email) to paraphrase Cicero, Mark Twain, Blaise Pascal 'If I had more time this would have been shorter.'

    SpamCop says it's too old, it's not

    Of course the spammer has no control over thr date entered by your ISP or other servers in the chain after their ISP. A spammer can of course forge the "Date:" header entry visible to all, and if they control their ISP they could control the date in the first "Received:" line in the header visible using the source with a ctrl-U The SpamCop parser used the dates contained in the "Received:" header lines, checking for logical sequence and age. If a date is questionable, I have see 'possible forgery' Which dates are you looking at? An example of the header, using a Tracking URL would be helpful.
