  1. Greetings once more, the very best to all forum regulars for another time. This is an issue I am facing every now and then lately. I try to report spam and I keep getting pinpointed to the Hotmail FAQ which I think is irrelevant due to that I am not using Hotmail but mailbox.gr another free web based mail service. Here's what worked fine so far. Whenever I got spam I clicked on a Show Headers button that opens a new window with the full headers of the spam but without new-lines even thought the window shows the headers with line-breaks. What I do next is to see the source of the window and this is what I copy after I strip out <XMP> </XMP> tags. This worked every time. But recently some new spams have shown up and I need to know what do I need to do to take care of them. Here's the source of such a spam: &lt;XMP&gt;READ: 1 Gottime: 1204809831 From jameskomo4u2008[at]yahoo.com Thu Mar 06 13:23:51 2008 Return-Path: &lt;jameskomo4u2008[at]yahoo.com&gt; Delivered-To: 1-XXXXXX[at]ZZZZZZ.gr Received: (qmail 8630 invoked from network); 6 Mar 2008 15:23:49 +0200 Received: from n61.bullet.mail.sp1.yahoo.com (98.136.44.37) by 62.103.159.188 with SMTP; 6 Mar 2008 15:23:49 +0200 Received: from [216.252.122.219] by n61.bullet.mail.sp1.yahoo.com with NNFMP; 06 Mar 2008 13:12:53 -0000 Received: from [69.147.65.172] by t4.bullet.sp1.yahoo.com with NNFMP; 06 Mar 2008 13:12:53 -0000 Received: from [127.0.0.1] by omp507.mail.sp1.yahoo.com with NNFMP; 06 Mar 2008 13:12:53 -0000 X-Yahoo-Newman-Property: ymail-5 X-Yahoo-Newman-Id: 452985.92602.bm[at]omp507.mail.sp1.yahoo.com Received: (qmail 28289 invoked by uid 60001); 6 Mar 2008 13:12:53 -0000 DomainKey-Signature: a=rsa-sha1; q=dns; c=nofws; s=s1024; d=yahoo.com; h=X-YMail-OSG:Received:Date:From:Reply-To:Subject:To:MIME-Version:Content-Type:Content-Transfer-Encoding:Message-ID; b=4UKvGaHaQ7lrYQ/JRkwhlG0rDw1MBz8N/BvbXs0dvX+UZtv99Df1Rq8Gznr/bkVjpZRvO3djN8aqom75Fh4AINtAZMNkcmsbaN+M7pwPDYVzxR6c1y7lLBBxtd7qIt/Yg3kV3P2yNEe3mrefWL5mh+t8vqtFfGF7dwKu93ki8hs=; X-YMail-OSG: aXQKOvMVM1lnZH1r2BR6EAIbyIXjocEpvAtLJyz5fn5Qepw_l26mmIK.1I3kHOYDIrPhH2uQgnC_etIhAvKklNXAcJ61nSPBNesS Received: from [41.207.3.194] by web45806.mail.sp1.yahoo.com via HTTP; Thu, 06 Mar 2008 05:12:52 PST Date: Thu, 6 Mar 2008 05:12:52 -0800 (PST) From: james komo &lt;jameskomo4u2008[at]yahoo.com&gt; Reply-To: jameskomo4u0[at]hotmail.fr Subject: Dearest One, To: jameskomo4u2008[at]yahoo.com MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="0-1625463336-1204809172=:28064" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit Message-ID: &lt;116089.28064.qm[at]web45806.mail.sp1.yahoo.com&gt; --0-1625463336-1204809172=:28064 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit Dearest One, I am Mr James Komo from war ravaged SIERRA LEONE but presently domiciled in Abidjan Ivory coast.

I've read the part on the extra newlines and I tried to find myself what is the problem with this spam, unsuccesfuly. So, could you please tell me, what else do I need to with this spam (as an example) so that SpamCop can parse it successfully? Thanks in advance.

    Subject of last spam reported...

    It seems I am asking too much. Making a post of how am I doing this and why I get confused about whether I have submitted the spam message in my INBOX will make no sense. But I can tell it must be because I am bored to do 70 spam reports a day, and only have my INBOX tab and the spamcop tab open. When I get to the nag screen I always look on other windows. Anyway, I have found a way that will somehow resolve this issue. I changed the way the e-mails are sorted in my INBOX in the weird way of having the older ones, on top. Now deleting a message moves on to the next one. I guess I just have to get used to it.

    Subject of last spam reported...

    Exactly! What I am requesting is that the subject of the spam reported to be re-displayed after the spam reports have been sent, along with the information where were the reports sent. This will be really usefull for me and boost my performance, because along with spam reporting I also do other tasks while reporting spam and there are moments in which I am not sure whether I have reported a particullar spam. Then if I don't want to risk sending double spam reports, which you encourage not to do, I have to go to the Past Reports and then enter the View recent reports which takes a while and slows my spam report sending spree. StevenUnderwood: Thanks for clearing this out for me and of course I am aware of that. A very nice example is the many many spam I received with the same subject EQSE News recently, they drove me nuts and I have reported them all. This particullar issue you mentioned is also making me wonder whether I should request that along with the subject of the spam reported that the sender of the spam to be re-displayed after the spam reports have been sent.

    I get that in the screen before I press the Send spam report(s) Now! button in the following format: Please make sure this email IS spam: From: "Oscarhdm Landis" &lt;qhegmept[at]4u.com.gh&gt; (Stock News Blast a) This is a multi-part message in MIME format. ------=_NextPart_001_0003_00F5C22D.D85B2EB0 But in the following screen I only read: spam report id 2050828206 sent to: daasante[at]ghanatel.com.gh spam report id 2050828231 sent to: mnfodzo[at]ghanatel.com.gh spam report id 2050828244 sent to: kwarteng[at]ghanatel.com.gh spam report id 2050828253 sent to: spamcop[at]imaphost.com and not the subject of the the spam these reports were sent for.

    Subject of last spam reported...

    Greetings and many thanks to SpamCop for it's great value in service... This is my first post about, and I would like to propose for a new feature. I am trying to help by reporting every single spam that comes to my university mail account and sometimes due to the ammount of the spam (60-70 spam messages, daily) I get confused of whether I have reported a particullar spam message. Therefore just to make sure I won't double-report any spam message I have to click the Past Reports button and then enter the View recent reports I will have to find out my self whether I have reported that particullar spam or not. The problem is that this procedure takes longer than the usual one. So, here's what I propose: I've noticed that as soon as you report a spam and you return to the Report spam screen the recipients of the last report as being showed, just like this: spam report id 2049559831 sent to: abuse[at]foo.net.br /dev/null'ing report for postmaster#foo.net.tr[at]devnull.spamcop.net spam report id 2049559834 sent to: spamcop[at]spamhaterz.com Report another spam? ... Couldn't the Subject of the last spam message reported being showed there just like it shows from the View recent reports? That would really boost my performance. I also note that this the information about the recipients of the last report sent is lost you you click again on the Report spam button that's how I would like this requested information to be shown, only when you come to the Report spam page after sending out a spam report. Thanks in advance.
