  1. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp There's no formal prohibition but we prefer that you post the Tracking URL rather than the full headers. The Tracking URL allows us to follow the link to a separate web page to see what the header and body of the spam are rather than cluttering up the Forum with such things. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp That's very rare. Could you please share with us the error message or, better yet, the Tracking URL? &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp You seem to be blaming the hammer manufacturer for not making a tool that can't be used effectively as a screwdriver, without having even communicated with the hammer manufacturer (deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net), only with other hammer customers. Or did you contact the deputies and they declined to do anything about it or haven't replied? &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Added later on edit: To extend/ mix metaphors, you seem to be condemning the charity organization for not accepting your two-dollar bill (the analogy I intend is your attempted spam submission, not your voluntary membership money) because their equipment or accounting system just won't handle it. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp You are perfectly within your rights to do that. I hope, though, that when you do you'll add that SC has a cadre of users who are satisfied with the (free -- you don't need to purchase anything to use it) product, notwithstanding the one specific thing you wish it would do but won't.

    Todays Odd spam

    Not yet! ...Perfect place to put payload, once the "kid" does enough further research to learn how to arm her/ his "toy." <frown> See, for example, Weekly malware update – 2010/Jan/14 | Sucuri Blog.

    never ending story-spam

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp The sooner you report the spam, the sooner the admins will be able to start work to stop the spammer if they want to do that. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp The national language of the state of Israel is Hebrew. Almost all Israelis, not just Jewish Israelis, use it (at least those who live within the original borders of Israel). Many non-Israeli Jews know at least a few words of Hebrew but only a very tiny number of non-Israelis can converse or write whole sentences in Hebrew. A fairly large number of Israelis, especially those who use the internet, know and use English.
  4. Hi, Lance -- welcome! &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp That would depend on the spam source admin's preferences but you can't know that. I'd be inclined to send them all, since those Admins that don't care about multiples can ignore them but those that want to see them will get them. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Not that I'm aware. Sometimes SC won't send reports for one reason or another but I can't remember ever seeing it not do that due to this reason. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp IMHO, your being considerate in this way is kind but, as I noted before, results in too little information going to those spam source admins who prefer to receive them. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp As long as you actually Submit, yes it does. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Hm, that's seems to me to be a good question! Hopefully someone else will come by to answer.

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp A law you might come to regret if a spammer effectively (at least, effectively enough to fool the authorities) spoofs your ISP as the perpetrator, resulting in your being hit with the fines and jail terms.
  6. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp That very well might be! It's certainly worth a try; the worst that can happen is that your attempt bounces, as well. <g>

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp That is the address to which the US FTC requests us to "[f]orward unwanted or deceptive messages." There is more information about it at the FTC web site.
  9. Hi, jasmith4, &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Please review the SpamCop Forum topic "Emailed spam Submissions Disappearing? No Confirmation e-mails?" to check whether any of those items may be relevant to your situation. If not, please explain your situation to the SpamCop Deputies at e-mail address deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net. Good luck!

    [Resolved] yahoo problems cant find headers

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Parsing is the act of the SC parser (the program that analyzes spam headers and content) to analyze the spam headers. The parser page is the page returned to you when you click the "Process spam" button on the form where you paste in the spam headers and body content. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp SC Glossary entries added: Parser Parser Page Parsing
  11. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Please let me know what, specifically, in my earlier post (other than what was in the referenced FAQ entry) you found to be mumbo-jumbo and I'll try to explain further. I tried to make it English but I know I often fail in such attempts. <g>
  12. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Well, if SpamCop were designed as a facility to identify links in e-mail messages, it appears to me that you'd definitely have a case. I would refer you to the SpamCop FAQ item labeled "SpamCop reporting of spamvertized sites - some philosophy." Short version; SpamCop's identification of links, when it works, is "gravy." You may be interested in Knujon and/ or Complainterator, more about which you can find in these Forums by using the Search facility. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Neverthless, since you do seem to have found a possible problem with the SpamCop parser's ability to identify what do appear to be valid URLs, you could address this to the SpamCop Deputies by writing to them at e-mail address deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net to ask if they would be willing to explain what it is about those links that causes the parser to not recognize them as such.

    [Resolved] yahoo problems cant find headers

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Is what is showing in your post exactly as you are pasting it into the SpamCop form? If so, the problem is that there are no line feeds to tell SpamCop where lines begin and end, so SpamCop doesn't see these as e-mail internet headers. But I suspect it's just a formatting problem due to HTML. That is one of the reasons we prefer a Tracking URL.

    [Resolved] yahoo problems cant find headers

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp In my experience, pretty much the only way to report spam to my Yahoo address is directly to Yahoo itself by clicking the "spam" button. By now, it catches pretty much all spam to my Yahoo!Mail address, directing it instead to my "spam" box, from which I just delete it after identifying any of the rare false positives.

    Head line at Spamcop

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp My guess is that we will not be able to resolve your problem in this Forum because it is impossible for us to reproduce your exact situation. I would suggest that you send an e-mail about your problem to the SpamCop Deputies at e-mail address deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net.

    Head line at Spamcop

    Hi, kolor, &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp As I understand it, you are trying to submit your spam via the web form at https://members.spamcop.net/ and are seeing errors. &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Did you try any of the advice, above? < snip irrelevant quote that was included only for the below comment > &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Please forgive me if you already know this but it bears mentioning that you will need two different SpamCop reporting accounts for your two different e-mail accounts and you can only report spam you receive at www.o2.pl when logged into https://members.spamcop.net/ with your www.o2.pl user ID and only report spam you receive at gmail when logged into https://members.spamcop.net/ with your gmail account ID.

    wrongly parsed header?

    &nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp If nothing else, MailHosts will help prevent accidentally reporting your own provider as a spam source, however unlikely it would seem to be in your case. Of course, even MailHosts won't prevent it, as I've found on a couple of occasions, I guess due to my lack of attention after my provider added incoming servers.
