Should I bother clicking repeated e-mail addresses for multiple spams? in SpamCop Reporting Posted March 20, 2015 Hi, Lance -- welcome! <snip>My question is this: when I start to see 30-40 spams that end up reporting to the same domain, should I un-check the boxes so as not to send what are ultimately redundant e-mails to the abuse contacts? Or is it important for them to see that the spam is coming from several different IPs within their networks?        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. In fact, will spamcop even recognize that an e-mail report was recently submitted to a given abuse contact and determine on its own not to send out the e-mails?        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. Some of these reports wind up with 9 or so e-mail boxes I have to un-check to avoid sending out too many abuse e-mails and that's somewhat of a burden on my end, but I'm sensitive to the fact that I don't want to overburden legitimate abuse departments, and I understand that e-mailing illegitimate spammer networks probably won't have any effect anyway.        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. Does unchecking all the e-mail boxes still cause the report to be tracked for purposes of blocking a given IP?        As long as you actually Submit, yes it does. What about the devnull entries...I've read the FAQs and I don't think I quite understand what their purpose is. Should I leave those checked or unchecked for the repeated spams?        Hm, that's seems to me to be a good question! Hopefully someone else will come by to answer.
