  1. would someone please enlighten me, how does adding gmail's server to a black list makes any sense at all? i mean, because of less than 10 people, does it make sense to block 1000s of emails from a huge email provider? how about blocking hotmail's 100000 of emails because of a few reports? ips like this one http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blcheck&ip=64.233.162.201 should be white listed IMO

    [at]Miss Betsy yes you may be right, maybe google really should change the header or respond faster to spam reports [at]WB8TYW funny how 4 short words i gave no thought to allowed you to write 5 irrelevant paragraphs but hey... what ever does it for you...

    i am obviously to referring to most people and i am not talking about "all over the place", only where it is needed like in instant messaging programs. email is a common way to get someone's IP address either by planting a webbug in it (which Gmail blocks) or making the other side reply since i am often targeted by stupid kids trying to take over my attractive ICQ account by scams and trojans i believe a hidden IP address is a blessing too bad the spammers think so too

    i disagree hiding my IP address means hiding some personal information about myself which i don't always wish to be known (my email can actually be treated differently if the receiver has something against Israel for example) my IP address can also be used to spam me using the messenger service (if it's not shutdown) or using a direct connection instant messenger protocol, not to mention scan for holes and exploits (if i wasn't using a router and a software firewall...) and gather more personal information about me....use my IP address to report me using a fake abuse report (i did that once for a spammer, he wasn't using his IP address to send the spam, but i managed to find it and send a fake abuse report to make it look like he was - the ISP fell for that) a hidden IP address is just as good to the spammers as to the rest of us

    a webmail that keeps its users's ip addresses hidden is more secure i hope it won't change

    you didn't quote the lines/post/poster i quoted yes i understand that. but i also understand that there is no way to stop spam completely from ANY big server. a few additional reports are nothing IMO

    you fail to understand that having an important server listed for 12 hours because of one report is a very drastic action

    nope, that wasn't me my point is that before blacklisting, it's spamcop that should contact gmail and not the other way around, because blacklisting a gmail server has a pretty big effect. EDIT: yes i saw the server is going to be...set free but I'll contact gmail about it later, i wonder if they have any recommendation for the end user when it happens (contact them somehow?)

    thank you for your reply i have read the important threads but no matter how complex the mathematical formula is, it has a big flaw IMO if it adds a gmail/hotamil/yahoo/... server to the list. that move is simply too drastic, no matter how i look at it, making so many emails to be blocked cannot be justifiable. even the huge vol change in senderbase doesn't convince me that cases like this should NOT be taken care of by contacting the respected provider in some kind of a direct channel. a channel set up especially for emergency spam reports. blacklisting without talking to the provider when so many emails are in stake is too harsh
