    Reverse NDR Spam

    This person has not given us any clue as to what they are on about or any of the supposed afflicted IP address (yes we get spammers often proclaiming innocence) SpamCop does not allow bounces to be reported? SpamCop looks for originating IP to be blocked. They have a misconfigured server and are blaming SpamCop the messenger It would help if this person gave some info to check? A blocked IP number would help correct their problem It is obvious they have misconfigured something and wrongly blaming SpamCop

    Why Am I Blocked FAQ

    Miss Betsy I would say the problem is that a number of know nothing do nothing "abuse" desks start complaining about what they term" SpamCop" spam (been there done that) The best way to deal with a open network (or open computer) is to format all their spam spewing drives and leave those drives with 20 alphanumeric password protected (this stops them spamming and something I am cosidering doiing! I've had enough If someone like Comcast does not mind insecure networks fine I hope they realize what information I do not decide to copy and post in newsgroups (Passwords credit card details etc) Then find they have to buy new drives for their servers fine and suits me.

    Why Am I Blocked FAQ

    SpamCop notifies the ISP when they get listed for sending email to spamtraps, but only when listed not before If responsive and they fix their security problem SpamCop will very quickly delist Miss Betsy's rendition is fine. However I feel being nice to people who end up on SpamCops "Blocklist" need to be spoken to more aggressively and straight to the no nonsense point Trying to be "polite" seems to infer to many of these loons that it is SpamCop at fault when SpamCop is but a service. Stating in no uncertain terms to these no nothing loons that any provider that gets listed, has been listed because of their own doing/incompetancy and no one else's Whether or not they like it The only listings that happen is because of no response or action to abuse reports. Which are sent for each and every spam! It is not an excuse or SpamCops doing if their "upstairs" do not inform them of problems (FIRST stop paying these "drongo's" get a provider that WILL provide a service) It is now ridiculous that out of every 1000 emails recieved one is legitimate (One now has to be ready to "avert one's eyes")! The rest is spamvertised filth and or fraud (If on a SpamCop Blocklist talk to your provider and demand your money back. That is all these ISP credit Card milking creeps are about) :angry:

    Why Am I Blocked FAQ

    If you are on SpamCop's blocklist it is simply because your ISP does not care and you should look for another provider SpamCop contacts the listed address of ISP long before any lengthy listing so your provider again does not care and is either not getting abuse reports or ignores them The reason a provider (or credit card milker) does not get reports is simply that they have a misconfigured network and one you should not trust to send email Many of these clown ISP's eventually come to SpamCop newsgroups and threaten (cartoony) legal action about the messenger who has advised them of their (at best) messed up misconfigured network. Or they are simply spammer friendly in both cases SpamCop is simply and effectivly doing what SpamCop members subscribe for. That's to produce an effective spam sorter/filter which sorts spam as and while a spammer is sending spam and when spam stops the IP is released (The SpamCop Filter is not a blocklist). SpamCop does this magnificently stopping porn, fraud and other sleaze from hitting ones in box (again while being sent not after)

    Reverse NDR Spam

    SpamCop does not report bounces so your whole argument is baseless If you are not a spammer you have a security problem with your network. It only takes an employee (or yourself) to open a "exe" file and your computer becomes a slave zombie for one to do what ever (format hard drive even) Of course it may be your set-up is misconfigured without an IP to go by we do not know if you are even truthful

    SpamCop Mail uses the alleged "blocklists" to sort email into inbox and probable spam folder. None of these lists are actually anything but a "sortlist" nothing is bounced Out of interest try making a 8 Alphanumeric Hotmail throwaway address and send an email to a comcast user Then watch comcast mail bomb that account with spam! This is all Comcast presently are doing all over the planet out of a 100 emails from Comcast all 100 are spam. Often pornographic, bank fraud, software piracy, etc. I for one do not wish to see this and SpamCop puts with absolute accuracy for me in a folder to be checked and if need be automatically reported (ComCast are ignoring these reports)

    SPEWS Listing All Comcast Subscribers

    I block them!If NOBODY from comcast IP's can send me email suits me fine. So far 100% of all email from Comcasts IP's to me has been spam and is all reported as it has been for some time only to be ignored by Comcast I personally do not want email from comcast ever! I as I said before I hope their customers do the right thing and leave My only concern about the SPEWS listing is it was far too slow in happening

    SPEWS Listing All Comcast Subscribers

    Hopefully they will end up a small abusive provider They do not seem to care about other people. perhaps this is what Comcast want? They most certainly need to be blocked going by the volume of spam they allow through their IP's. Using the SPEWS list has stopped Comcasts spam getting through to me. Consider dumping Comcast as a provider would be an even better step
  10. You should complain to Symantec about that. I notice others have found this with Norton also, as to complaining to Symantec Will look at a better virus program next time (Sophos) :angry:

  12. Which Norton product does this? If it's on a PC running WinNT or better, have you tried just restarting its Service? Norton Anti-Virus 2003 on WIN98 auto updates and then POP stop working (sometimes)
  13. Norton is often the culprit after it updates Happens to me once in every while then you lose POP ability (reboot is the answer)

    Sc and Outlook Express ?

    just stop forwarding to rogers from SpamCop mail You then have your email client set to pop.spamcop.net and or if you wish a IMAP connection as well its imap.spamcop.net SpamCop has a very fast connection worldwide probably faster than your connection

    Not Filtering???

    Start here to check your setup http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?&act=SF&f=5 and here <http://mail.spamcop.net/setup/setup.php> After doing that consider this Suggested setup for a start (1) Log in using your FULL spamcop email address here <http://webmail.spamcop.net/horde/imp> (2) click "Options" at top of page (3) in box "Mail Management" click "SpamCop Tools" (4) click "Select your email filtering blacklists." (5) uncheck box "Block All " and check all the boxes in box "DNS Blacklist" and click "Blue Button" "Modify" underneath (6) have your provider forward your email to your spamcop address (7) Setup your email client to collect (POP3) your email from spamcop. In the POP3 box of your email client remove the one you have there and replace with "pop.spamcop.net" (7b) If you use IMAP to access your email, please use the following names: spamcop.net customers: imap.spamcop.net You can disable "auto polling". If you do not a bell will ring every time a message hits your "held folder" (8) Success you should now have all mail caught by filters in your held folder with only legitimate email in your inbox (9)For logging into held folder <http://mailsc.spamcop.net/reportheld?action=heldlog> This will allow you to forward and whitelist innocents and Toast the guilty at a simple click of the mouse button I would suggest you use password software for bettter security for logging in http://www.password-depot.com/download.htm This is basically freeware for 20 passwords/URLs It also works flawlessly from a USB drive (good for shared computers) Lockable by two completly different strong encryption methods (Blowfish AND Rjindael) You then disable your personal computer to remember passwords and login (always uncheck this option on shared computers) ****************** To contact SpamCop go here <http://mail.spamcop.net/> <http://mail.spamcop.net/contact.php> ***************************
  16. You are best set-up a IMAP connection to spamcop ("imap.spamcop.net" as well as "smtp.spamcop.net") there is no need to "auto-poll" this extra IMAP email connection to spamcop (just uncheck the relevant box) Doing this allows you to drag (with mouse) spam from your inbox to your held folder for VER reporting (no need for SpamDeputy) spamdeputy issues are best dealt with their "yahoo support group" spamdeputy link I reccomend that you should no longer use your windows computer to hold passwords!! Instead use a software program (Click for) such as "Password Depot" this can be on your computer or (as I use it) on a USB device to be used on all the computers I have to use (Town libary included) It is freeware for 20 passwords and itself is protected by two differnet encryption algorythms - This means your passwords can be very long, composed of non-text characters, numbers as well as text.
