Hi, I have recently been getting reports of my mail server bouncing gmails. I set up a test gmail account and it bounces those too!
I have read a great deal about this unfortunate state of affairs and as it stands I believe you spamcop chaps a re "sure" you are doing it all right and Google are not budging on their not releasing IP of originator. So.
I asked my Webhost, SiteGround for some help as Google and some of you here suggest to do. Siteground have been FAR from helpful. After a fair few emails pinging back and forth, some with amazing claims, they have accepted that the gmails are being returned because they use Spamcops filters alone. I have asked them to either add a whitelist of the google servers or move me to a server without spamcop BL. They have refused both, saying it is against their policy to add whitelist. Do you think this is an acceptable answer, do I just have to accept it?
I have searched to no avail, I wonder if you can help. A number of you make the point that Spamcop should not be used alone and even alongside spamassassin. What would they need to do? Is it a lot of work? Sorry if this is in a FAQ, you guys have the largest FAQ I have seen but I could not find this info. Do you have any suggestions on what to say to SiteGround that will help. It's a shame cos they are good in most toher respects.
p.s. I have spamassassin available on my SiteGround account. It's a virtual server and my account has a Cpanel that allows me to set up Spamassassin. All my tests with SA work very well and limit the spam I do get but I dont think it will help with these gmail returns becasue these are server wide before my account gets a look, does that sound right?
Thanks for any help
