  1. Another quick add to the form would be a site unique simple question or a Sesame Street type question (things that are not Google-able) for example: Which one doesn't belong? Orange, Grape, Apple? With a set of 3 or 4 random questions, with different answers it slows down the bots. It is also quick to implement and change the questions. It is all an arms race.
  2. The short answer is no. The email you are receiving from the Contact form on your website/domain will appear to come from your system NOT from the mailert.ru, in your example above. You can see this by looking at the header of the received email, depending on the email application you are using. For example in thunderbird, when looking at the email if you press <crtl> U you will see how the email was delivered. If you follow the path from the top down you should see that the IP address is the same as your domain or you host. In reality these are emails you are sending to yourself.

    Convert from PUNbb 1.4.4

    This is a forum related to fighting spam. I would suggest you find a forum related to your applications. A WPForo forum may be helpful. Thread moved to a more appropriate forum.

    New email threat and processing shortfall

    No there is no timeline for resolution. Have you done a search for "IPv6"? There are several threads on this ongoing issue.

    New email threat and processing shortfall

    Next time please use SpamCop Tracking URLs instead of posting the email inline. From the Tracking URL we all can see the original email, the path the parser took, and the actions the parser recommends, without cluttering the thread.
  6. Well for starters, the SpamCop Block list, blocks IP addresses, not domain name. I have no clue about mxtoolbox or their lookup tool.
  7. The SpamCop block list is a dynamic list that requires several examples for an IP to be added to the list, UNLESS an emails is sent to a secret spam-trap. In any case, an IP address will come off the SCBL after a given time if no more reports are received. You can check SpamCop Block List to see if your email server's IP address is on the list. You can also check Browseable map of IPv4 netspace to get a view of your overall reputation.

    misattribution

    If you would provide a Tracking URL it would provide the rest of us more information to answer your implied question. The Tracking URL will also let us see how the parser reach the answer(s) it did.
  9. Glad to hear that things are working. Can I mark this thread resolved? One way to restrict spam is to 'tightly' comply with the standards.

    how to report scam links

    The fact that these websites are links in a spam, does not mean that they are the source of spam; and SpamCop is primarily interested in the source. As a low priority, when processing time allows, they do try to send spam Reports to host of links in spam. The SCBL is intended to block the sources of unwanted spam, if the links are not the source it would not be useful to report/include them in the SCBL.
  11. The links in the body of spam are the lowest priority task for the parser. If you look at the "Statistics" tab you will see thy are processing ~5 spam/second on average. If you submit spam at times of high load, parsing the links in the body of your spam may not be done to avoid falling behind on the higher priority task. Its an old reference but reminds me of "Lucy on the candy assembly line" from I Love Lucy ~ years ago (B/W TV) but a classic!

    Is Google even paying attention to Spamcop?

    at the top of the submit screen is the Tracking URL It can also be found in the email sent to you by SpamCop What you provided are "Report id" which are visible only by you. This is a common confusion.

    E-mail reporting -- "No reports filed"

    Hmmmm could be, my domain/email has not changed sense 1996. Nor has my SpamCop reporting account except for changing host as I out live them, so maybe.

    E-mail reporting -- "No reports filed"

    It seems that what I learned (before going back to bed) was that I agreed to quickly. The above are snippets from the email I received after doing a "quick" submit. I jumped to agree when looking at "past reports" and I saw the same thing dlongnecker reported. Looks to me like someone change the screen or feed from 'quick' reporting. On the other hand looks like the spam was accepted and reports generated.
