  1. Turns out that you are right. The problem lies with my ISP. I set up forwarding to another mailbox on another service and found duplicate messages there as well.
  2. I have my ISP configured to forward only to Spamcop. I normally get my email from Spamcop using a POP client, but the duplicate messages also show up in my spamcop webmail. When I temporarily set my ISP to both save and forward, I see no duplicates on my ISP's server, only on spamcop's. I don't know what Configure external POP servers does, but when I tried it on my mail account I got an error count of 0.
  3. I thought about this possibility, but could not see how my ISP could push the same message twice (or three times) to different servers at cesmail.net. Nonetheless, I shall pursue the matter with them. hh
  4. Over the past few weeks I've found that Spamcop creates multiple copies of some messages. Each such message is forwarded once from my ISP to my spamcop account. (At least I assume such since it only appears once in my inbox at my ISP and I've provided for forwarding once to my spamcop account.) The duplicates appear two or three times in my spamcop inbox. Their headers differ slightly from copy to copy. Here are the headers of a message that appears twice in my spamcom mailbox. The differences that I can see are in bold.

  5. Forget it. Apparently my ISP has gotten itself temporarily crossthreaded with the XBL/CBL database. I would delete this topic if I knew how. hh
  6. My public email address, henry[at]quiensabe.com, is hosted by dreamhost.com. Mail is forwarded to my spamcop address (and saved for a time by dreamhost). Recently, a couple of messages were bounced back to the sender. I found one in my dreamhost mailbox but it never made it to my spamcop mailbox. Rather it was bounced to the sender. The bounce follows. Did this bounce originate with Spamcop? If so, why and what can I do about it. I'm submitting a similar request to dreamhost support.

    Email Reporting

    Thanks for the reply. 1. I'm assuming that, by preferences, you mean the ones at http://mailsc.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=wizard&stage=1. The address there is my spamcop email address (i.e., the address to which I forward email for filtering and login at pop.spamcop.net). 2. to report, I send a message to my reporting address. The message consists of the raw source that I want to report. I have a scri_pt that cleans up the headers properly. The reporting method worked fine for my old account. 3. I would be happy to provide more data. What would you suggest? thanks again hh Thanks for the prompt reply. I checked out the linke you provided. Quite useful. From the post I gather that my reports are never reaching the spamcop servers. Thanks to you, I now have an email address to which I can report this problem. hh

    Email Reporting

    I have both a reporting-only account and an email filtering account. I used up the gigs on the former, so I started reporting spam using the latter, using email reporting to the address provided. Since I switched, the reports submitted by email seem to go into the ether in that I get no confirmation requests whatsoever. Reporting over the web and via webmail works, and email reports to my expired reporting-only account work. Can anybody explain what is going on here?
