    [Resolved] Forwarding

    [Resolved] Forwarding

    A quick look at the original question, Receives mail at "A" which forwards it to SpamCop account which then forewards it to "C", AND domain "A" is getting reported. It sounds like the problem MailHosts was designed to help. Have you gone through the MailHosts reg process? If I read the FAQ corretly that should eleminate all of you mail domain names from the reporting generated from the email header. That should make it less dangerous for you to process spam with out taking the time to look at where reports are going (ref all the other threads about false reporting )

    Slow response from SC

    Is true. Untill the backlog / delay is gone I have been using the web page to cut and past the spam report. Slow, takes lots of time - but gets the spam reported in a reasonable time. Some of these spewers are so flighty if it takes to long to report they get a pass.

    Not Updating Avg.Reporting Time?

    I fear your average, like mine, is faced with the facts of mathamatics. With the delays caused by the current outages my average has gone from 1 hour to 2 hours. If my record has been 50 per day for the last 30 days, I would need to submit 1500 spam with a delay of ZERO to get the average back down to 1 hour. [ (50 per day X 30 days X 2 hrs) / 1500 = 2 hrs ((50 pre day X 30 days X 2 hrs) + (50 per day X 30 more days X 0hrs)) / 3000 = 1 hr ] the more things you take the average of, the less effect one item (or a group of items) has on the over all average. sorry.

    Really nasty spam

    This is my favorite spew for today. I have been receiving one or two copies a day all week from this domain. This one caught my attention by trying to send my email address to walkmills.com every time I opened the mail. Looking at the body of the message I found 6 copies of my address in the HTML code, filling in blanks, being sent as part of a format download request, as part of a "remove" link, etc. Other than that, this guy seems really concerned about my morgage interest rate = or is it just interest in receiving my morgage payment?
  7. I understood. I was just using my spam count as a measure of the amount of "counter-spam information" I have to file <g>, limited, yet empathizing with your plite. I too celebrated anniversaries on the today/yesterday schedual, mostly yesterday --- That may explain why I have been married 3 times <g>.
  8. rooster I see your point. when you daily extract entries for reference, a weeks worth of messages are all dated "today [at] ..." without some effort. a real date, 05-04-19, could be used as a sort field or just to keep "today" (monday) seperate from "today" (Friday). Although I am only dealing with 20-30 spam daily (not asking for more!<g>), I still haven't figured out what to do with it except just raw counts and reporting.

    Stock Spam

    They are back. now it is CYRR.PK that is being pushed by the spam. Again Yahoo.com doesn't want to hear about it. It is understandable, the yahoo reference is just a "news" artical about the same stock/company, not the source of the spew. Oh well, just one of many.

    Slow response from SC

    good point. this offer from Nigeria for US$33.6M came in about 9:19. the SW example was received at 7:57 (during my feeding time). It is a trade off between timely reporting and non-peak hours. Thus is life.

    Are spammers getting desperate

    my approch to reporting ebay phishing trips is sending copies to all of the following: submit.xxx[at]spam.spamcop.net reportphishing[at]antiphishing.org spoof[at]ebay.com

    Additional Notes

    Newbe question I can't find the answer to in FAQ. Do "Additional Notes" get added to all the spam reports as apposed to "Comments for ..." being added to just one copy of the report? Seems obvious but we're getting down to the nits. Do you know does anyone read the notes?

    Header Error

    When I reported a spam using the web page, it reported an error saying the header was not compleat. I read the error pages cancled the report. When I looked at the source (Cnrl-U) I found the following lines in the header: From: " " <Napoleon[at]charter.net> Reply-To: " " <zrer326alyp[at]comcast.net> As I guessed when I reported again I changed the lines to read: From: "" <Napoleon[at]charter.net> Reply-To: "" <zrer326alyp[at]comcast.net> the second time all was well. This is the first time I have seen this trick in my short life.

    Phishing E-Mail Enhancement

    That's good to know. I will take it as an endorsement, you never know who paid the guy at the Post. My luck , i've read 25778 entries and missed the one ... <g> Corporate memory is good.

    Phishing E-Mail Enhancement

    The following was reported in The Washington Post as a place to report Phishing: Anti-Phishing Working Group, http://www.antiphishing.org/ I have not received any phish bate lately (don't tell any one!) but looking at their web page it looks like the right place to report. They have the same reporting requirements as spamcop (email attachment with full header etc.). They appear to ask for all reports so figured I would add <reportphishing[at]antiphishing.org> to the TO: list. If (when) I get some phishing spam I will report any blow back.

    Header Error

    The line break seems to be caused by a <CR> not the old 50*<sp> trick I have offten seen used to obfuscate links in phish bate.

    Fuel Error

    Been a while sence I could not give away my money, but I can't buy fuel using Verisign. I'm using Netscape 7.2. I login, report spam. every thing works fine. I feel guilty so try to buy some fuel. So from the "Report spam" page I press <Add Fuel to your Account> goes to the "Add fuel to your SpamCop Reporting Account" page I press <Proceed to Vegisign Payment page> next page is "Data Entry Error" Entry = CUSTID Value = SPvx......... description = ' this should be 11 char long' (not the 16 char SpamCop ID)

    Thanks = I was begining to think you didn't like me.
  22. Can't use email to submitt spam report. Each email gets a: "Sorry, but SpamCop has encountered errors: Headers not found. It appears you did not provide all email headers. " I am using Netscape 7.2. I use the cntr-U, cntr-A, cntr-C approch to get the spam and then past it into the email report with cntr-V. after I get the error message, I go to the web page, login and fill the box with the spam using cntr-V. works fine. Am sending the email report to the address sent with reg. or on the webpage Help?

    Headers not found.

    <quote> What email application are you using to sen this message? Where are the messages stored (some webmail application)? How are you creating this message? Spamcop email submission requires a very specific format, usually accomplished with "forward as attachment". Simply pasting the text into a blank message will, with certain configurations, not produce a usable message at the receiving end. <quote> Netscape 7.2 email app. Stored on my hard drive, using POP not a webmail app. again Netscape 7.2 email app used to create message. The FAQ for reporting using Netscape suggest the cut and past method or as an attachment using drag and drop. I found the drag & drop less handy, but it didn't work eather.

    Headers not found.

    Sorry - I intended to indicate that using the same process (Cntr-U, -A, -C , -V) to get a copy of the spam and header I 1) get an error messages from spamcop when I past the spam into an email to spamcop, but 2) do not get an error when I past the same information into the spamcop webpage. What other information did you need?
