    Is there a SpamCop Outage

    That sounds like a security/permissions setting.

    Is there a SpamCop Outage

    Petzl I just logged in for here.

    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.
  5. That should work. Or goto <Browse> <Staff> and PM Richard
  6. 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.
  7. "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.
  8. 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.

    Emails not being received

    Reading other threads in this forum, SpamCop email System & Accounts should be informative. For example: SpamCop Email Service Changes When SpamCop and the SCBL was sold to CISCO inc this forum and the email system were retained as a legacy. with advice to all email account holders to find other email servers. After a coupe of years the system was reduced to "forwarding only." no SpamCop filtering. As I remember, a couple of years ago forwarding was also discontinued, though the email domain remained. Perhaps someone who has retained a SpamCop email address could add to the current status. As noted in the link above, SpamCop Email System & Accounts have gently been going away sense August 2014.

    Emails not being received

    @Hatespam~~ just to be sure, which spamcop account are you referring too? The spamcop forum? Your spamcop reporting account? or an old {AT}spamcop.net email account? Having posted to an old troll/spammer's thread, your request is not clear.

    Spamcop captcha is not loading

    Without any additional reports an IP will automatically be removed from the SCBL after 24 hours.

    I do not think so. Your report must me one of many/several reports to add an IP to the blocklist. Of course when you report you can not know if your report is the first and only report or the report that gets the sender added to the blocklist. See https://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/297.html scroll down to "SCBL Rules"

    Getresponse is an online marketing company. The number of reports compared to the total number of email send must be low. I do not know, but I am guessing that getresponse has ask SpamCop not to send spam reports and that is why sending reports is disabled. That does not keep SpamCop from collecting reports about the IP and adding their IP to the blocklist IF the number of reports or email received by a spam trap is high enough.
  16. Bob you need to login to your spamcop REPORTING account at https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=loginform NOT the forum which is at http://forum.spamcop.net In the forum you will see <settings> in the drop down menu in the top right corner. When logged into your reporting account there is a <preferences> tab across the top Sorry for not being clear before
  17. Just to be sure, login and take a look under <preferences> <Change email address or name> Although if this email address has changed I would think emails sent would bounce. Let us know.
  18. There are two possibilities, 1) your ISP is dropping the emails from SPAMcop on the floor thinking they are spam, or 2) your ISP is bouncing the email. If the emails from SpamCop are being bounced, you should see a bounce flag when you login to your account. Check with your ISP to correct their action and then clear the flag. If your ISP is dropping the email or putting them in your spam folder, have a heart-to-heart talk with your ISP about your displeasure. and besure SpamCop is on your white list if available. Historically ISPs have randomly changed the way they handle email/spam without any notice to users or explanation.

    Unable to Register Mailhost

    Have you looked at " How do I configure Mailhosts for SpamCop? " down under How you will see there is an required order to update your mailhost https://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/397.html
  20. If you follow the link in the page pointed to by https://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml? you will see that " not listed in bl.spamcop.net " The SCBL is dynamic so an IP may no longer be on the list. It requires several reports from reporters or spam traps for an IP to be added to the SCBL. After 24 hours the IP will be removed if no more reports are received. For related information, I suggest you read through the 15 year old thread to witch you added your post.

    Covid-19 spam

    If you missed it, I just deleted the first Covid-19 related spam. This was an offer for face mask. sure there are more to come. Do be careful
  22. No problem. Not sure how much US government "governs" SpapCop, but ACMA has a MUCH better rep. Our (US) 'Can spam act' I fear is a paper tiger.

    spam from Google Mail Groups

    Sorry it is not clear to me if you are sending an email outside of the SpamCop system or if you mean you are sending spam reports inside the system. In your original post it is not clear to me where in the chain of events the message you included ( > ---------- Original´╗┐ Message ---------- ) Is this the spam you reported resulting in the spam report you linked to? Or is later. Before I removed email addresses, for security, I was not clear how the FROM or TO or Subject related to you (your email that others can not see). As @gnarlymarleysuggested, the related tracking URL would help. The Tracking URL can be found at near the top of the reporting page or it is the link you received when you submit the spam by email as an attachment. My confusion may be due to my low caffeine level.
  24. Unfortunately, that is generally the state of the world. On the other hand, in some/many countries privet companies or groups do not have the power to control or constrain the actions of individuals in other countries. SpamCop/Cisco is in The United States and mediaform.com.au would appear to be in Australia. Fortunately for you Australia I believe does have stronger anti-spam laws than other countries. Have you contacted/reported this to Report{AT}submit.spam.acma.gov.au Their website is https://www.acma.gov.au/ Have you contacted PayPal? I would read their privacy statement first. I found a link in the lower right of the screen. First look found
  25. Sorry I did not read your OP carefully. Replace eBay with "mediaform.com.au" and most of my post still applies.
