    Complainee asking for full email

    Re: (Third party interested in email source) spamcop[at]imaphost.com Politely reply that as the report was sent by "me" through SpamCop. This can mean other interested parties including criminal agencies may well have been alerted by SpamCop (spamvertised pornographic website sent to children of all ages). "I" do not wish to affect any potential investigation by Authorities of your company and this serious criminal matter
  2. Try turning off "features" in "Tools" "Manage Add-ons" -->"Enable Disable Add-ons" I disabled "Diagnose connection Problems" "Research" "Windows Messenger" Also turned off "Phishing Filter" Found IE7 extremely slow at default setting, but now by disabling these "features" is quite fast I suspect that IE7 is tuned for Microsofts new VISTA operating system when it arrives As Wazoo mentioned you may wish to turn off caching "Tools" "Internet options" click TAB "Connections"click button "LAN settings" then try unchecking all check boxes (although "Automatically detect settings" is only one usually checked)

    Dynamic IP Blocked -

    I see you have a SpamCop email account Best to evade anything to do with an ISP's supposed email service. As you and most are finding they mostly/always incompetent. Never automatically accept an email address that a ISP dumps on you You can send email through your SpamCop account using smtp.cesmail.net Suggest you use smpt port 587 (port 25 will work if not blocked by ISP. Any half brained ISP should have this blocked) Ideally use your SpamCop email as only reply address letting all others fall into a non-used legacy
  4. 1. As suggested, I have sent myself a message to Hotmail, and all headers are included below. From what I can tell the server is stamping the IP's correctly. SpamCop correctly parses this and identifies IP as the source of message http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1148117337z6...cea34496badbcfz SpamCop would not list your email server 2. I ran a full system scan using the Symantec link above. It did find a couple viruses, specifically, Hackbox, and the two infected files were deleted from the system. That was the only thing found. You need to ALSO do the "security scan" not only the virus one 3. I did receive an email from abusespamcop[at]tickets.serverbeach.com and I have included the headers of one of the spam email below: In this case SpamCop identifies the email server as the source http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1148137281z6...b39417c1d559bdz You are probable bouncing email to spamtraps which means you are getting listed on other blocklists Many Companies ISP's do not disclose their blocklists and just bitbin email 4. I am running MailEnable Pro on a Windows 2000 Server and today I installed MEFilters which is their advanced filtering software. Since I setup the new filters approx. 12 hours ago the spam filter has stopped ~80 messages, SPF ~ 1200. Any more help or tips out there? Neal For starters stop bouncing undeliverable email http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/329.html
  5. Not much to do IP is a mail server your one report will not block it If "they" reply apoligise Also make sure to whitelist email address
  6. (1) Just checked if your email server to see if it was OPEN (It is secure) However a warning was "501 Your domain does not seem to be valid. Could not find MX record for your domain" I believe this means the/an IP can/maybe "Spoofed" (2) Send yourself an email to Hotmail (free throw-away account and look) (3) Can you have Symantec check that IP for both Virus and trojan? Its free (4) You need to look for SUBJECT IMAP [at] is where SpamCop sends secondary reports (secondary reports often are then used to contact criminal agencies) Look for SUBJECTS such as "Poised to Make a Big Move?,Michael Miller" "Squawk Box Stock Alert,MICHIO TAMAKI" You can also contact "abusespamcop[at]tickets.serverbeach.com"
  7. 501 Your domain does not seem to be valid. Could not find MX record for your domain Your server (if not infected) is not stamping the IP source from where the email came http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1087964718z8...c974068e18a468z IP is my computer If an email server is competently set-up SpamCop will only block the source computer not an email server after it Your server is bouncing (joe jobbing email addresses) to SpamCop Spamtraps which are better than bank security to guess spam samples reported from/through your email server Submitted: Tuesday, 21 November 2006 2:01:58 AM +1100: [***spam*** Score/Req: 11.3/8.0] Poised to Make a Big Move?,Michael Miller 2027177523 ( ) To: spamcop[at]imaphost.com 2027177497 ( ) To: abusespamcop[at]tickets.serverbeach.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Submitted: Sunday, 19 November 2006 9:54:42 PM +1100: Squawk Box Stock Alert,MICHIO TAMAKI 2025169400 ( ) To: spamcop[at]imaphost.com 2025169345 ( ) To: abusespamcop[at]tickets.serverbeach.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Submitted: Sunday, 19 November 2006 10:36:14 AM +1100: Stock Player Emerging Equity Report,Marian Nardini 2024420685 ( ) To: abusespamcop[at]tickets.serverbeach.com

  11. The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.spamcop.net', Server: 'pop.spamcop.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
  12. Thanks Wazoo without warning Norton/s decided to block outgoing and incoming email Email working perfectly after reboot ASAP I will install windows onecare a much superior product Norton is just too system heavy and buggy Just when I bought a sea scooter on ebay (summer in Australia)
  13. Like it or not if you/we are getting spam It means your/our email address is already being targeted by spammers Your best form of defence with these mugs is to report them (attack). Initially spam may increase as spammers share posting lists. SpamCop reporting does put spammers out of action and causes ISP's to correct security and email server compliance issues Many ISP's do seek out spammers to take them to court. Seeing the odd news report is evidence that this is happening. SpamCop by notifying ISP's and often other interested parties alerts them to spammers activities ISP's that are spam friendly and (as in this case) are found to provide personal details of we members, are not then contacted by SpamCop. Meaning they just get added to SpamCop's Blocklist and as always added to more permanent blocklists that do not inform ISP's of listing (Many major providers have secret blocklists that simply bit-bin

    How can I contact spamcom.net..

    Sender Base is recording large increase in "mail" through your server? Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average Last day 4.0 2209% Last 30 days 3.2 219% Average 2.7 Does your Server stamp (as it should) the IP source If your server is properly configured SpamCop will be able to track and only add the computer sending spam or bounces You server can also get listed if it bounces email that has false addresses (these often hit spamtrap addresses which have 16 or more alphanumeric address which is better than bank security to guess) As you are finding that you are getting blocked by the best most accurate Blocklist on the planet It means you are getting listed by slower blocklists which are often secret (AOL MSN HOTMAIL GMAI etc,etc) and almost impossible to be removed from (They also use spamtraps) Our SpamCop members SCBL Blocks spam BEFORE being sent not after releasing an afflicted IP when spam stops. You may be lucky in only getting blocked by a friendly blocklist giving you a warning shot.

    Blocked IP address

    That IP is a Zombie make sure it is not YOUR COMPUTER If it is you need to format drive then go through my signature An earlier post explains the ins and outs of being blocked I am a SpamCop member living in Sydney Australia and not admin
  16. If one considers email important it is best NOT automatically to accept an ISP's! SpamCop offer a continuously improving worlds best standard in email accounts, "SpamCop Email" Reality is if a email system is being bounced by SpamCop members SCBL it is because the ISP handling email is blatantly incompetent. Bounces to email addresses are added to the SCBL score through members (free and Paid) reporting Joe jobs to which an abuse report is sent to that ISP If an ISP is idiotic enough to mindlessly send bounces from spammers many of those bounces will hit SpamCops spamtraps after an overdose of hits SpamCop will list that server releasing when the spam stops. Other blocklists aside from our SCBL will also list ISP's (many are major ones like ALO, MSN) sending bounces and spam to spamtraps also. Often secret blocklists are set up by ISP's who do nothing but "bit-bin" email from systems hitting their spamtraps without notification. Getting removed from these blocklists is almost impossible ALL listings on our SCBL have attempted to send a report to ISP concerned (This is not guaranteed to ISP's who are spam friendly and found to divulge personal details of SpamCop Members). Normal spam reported by members, SpamCop will only block a computer that is sending that spam IF your ISP has it's system competantly set up. If you find your computer blocked by our SCBL it means either a user of it is sending spam or your computer has been hacked! In which case, aside from sending spam, all information on it is available to any thug who wants it (things like where you live, when you are or are not home, phone number, Bank/credit card details, etc, etc) This all said makes the SCBL the most accurate and best blocklist to use as it stops spam AS it is being sent not after. Spammers use millions/billions of email addresses which take days to send. SpamCop can block it in seconds releasing IP when spam stops being reported. Again if ISP is competantly set-up it is only the individual computer that is blocked. A big plus in using our SCBL is that aside from the bluster, it makes ISP's become aware and compliant making the Internet much much more secure To avoid being hacked and turned into a zombie my Signature suggests freeware protection

    Why dev'null to a Rokso?

    http://www.spamcop.net/sc?track= Just pointing out that SpamCop often sends reports to interested parties I were testing parsing of MY hotmail account and noted that aside from an abuse report being made for my ISP Hotmail also would of recieved a copy [moderator edit - fixed the quotes (I think) - Farelf]
  18. petzl

    Why dev'null to a Rokso? No valid email addresses found, sorry! There are several possible reasons for this: The site involved may not want reports from SpamCop. SpamCop administrators may have decided to stop sending reports to the site to prevent listwashing. SpamCop uses internal routing to contact this site, only knows about the internal method and so cannot provide an externally-valid email address. There may be no working email address to receive reports. How ever the report in this case is not simply bit binned http://www.spamcop.net/sc?action=showroute...typecodes=21,16 SpamCop reports are often used to alert interested parties Who may well take a spammer to court A test of mine through hotmail would not only get my ISP alerted in this case, Hotmail have requested a copy to be sent to them as well http://www.spamcop.net:80/sc?id=z108796471...c974068e18a468z Hotmail are another of many who do chase and take spammers to court as well as alert authorities
  19. Thought it may of been our email!!! But you are right after re-Reading bounce Seems OK now Supports my argument about NEVER accepting an email address an ISP dumps on you if you consider email important. A SpamCop email address is the only email addres you ill ever need
  20. ********************************************** ** THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY ** ** YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE ** ********************************************** The original message was received at Sun, 29 Oct 2006 10:22:20 +1100 from c60.cesmail.net [] ----- Transcript of session follows ----- Warning: message still undelivered after 4 hours Will keep trying until message is 5 days old
  21. So my reply is valid Start using your SpamCop email address as a reply only allowing your ISP's become defunct (never automatically accept an ISP's email address. They are mainly useless and incompetent) Your SpamCop email address is the only one you will ever need
  22. Check your blacklist however mail should end up in held folder Turn off forwarding (FROM SpamCop) and "pop" pop.spamcop.net directly Send email from smtp.cesmail.net (check "My server requires authentication" or similar) change SMTP port to 587 Then start using your SpamCop email address as a reply only allowing your ISP's become defunct (never automatically accept an ISP's email address. They are mainly useless and incompetent) Your SpamCop email address is the only one you will ever need
  23. China's IP range is forever increasing and I use whitelisting for email I get from there to get around any blocklist The odd spam I get that passes through SpamCop I post here along with the entire IP range for that Chinese IP (As well as proof) Surprisingly, spam from that IP range then seems to be blocked? I am not 100% sure if a SpamCop rep is adding it to a/their old hard coded cn.rbl.cluecentral.net but I think it is I also believe China is increasing its efforts to stop spam but are still not yet very effective

    Collateral Damage in the Fight Against Spam

    SpamCop and most other's actively assist in finding spammers where abouts, which often leads to taking them to court for being the criminals they are. Of course the politically correct also give the right for spammers to also attack us "Norms" right to defend ourselves, our children from spam and the hurtful filth it contains. You seem to be against ones right to stop illegal filth being repeatedly forced into one's homes and businesses The SCBL is for SpamCop members use Because it is so effective and accurate (stopping spam as being sent, not after. Then quickly releasing an IP when spam is stopped being sent) WITH ALL COMPETANT PROVIDERS NOTIFIED OF ALL REPORTED ABUSE by Spamcop Many ISP's use our Members SCBL although not always as instructed because it is by far the most accurate. If used as instructed no email is ever lost and is NOT for bit-binning (which indicates you know nothing) Facts are an ISP's incompetency at setting up conformant email servers are the reason for ALL lost email and allowing spam to be sent The fact that one is naively inclined to accept an ISP's compulsory email addy possibly does mean a fair percentage of email is bit-binned by a combination of ISP's incompetence and spammers who use their incompetency to invade the privacy of one's home and business security/reliability One should always shop around if email is important to one. Second to none is SpamCops email service If all email was set up competently like SpamCops email service the figures for lost/bit-binned email would simply not be an issue. One can also turn all filtering off which should also suit a fool like you

    My IP is blacklisted appears to be an email server SpamCop tries to list an IP address of the computer sending spam The fact that it is not means your email server is misconfigured and is not stamping the source IP, leaving/naming as the direct source instead of the computer sending the spam through it Note how SpamCop tracks my compter through Hotmail correctly configured email server http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1087964718z8...c974068e18a468z You are probably also bouncing email Learn about backscatter Bouncing email is worse than spamming as reply addresses are mainly a Joe Job. If they are hitting SpamCop spamtrap they are hitting addresses with around 16 or better alphanumeric[at] addresses which are better than bank security to guess but are obtained by web spiders, software used to mindlessly gather addresses for spammers Please read how to stop doing this http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/329.html SpamCop will release a blocked IP quickly just as it will list quickly (SpamCop Blocklist stops spam as it is being sent not after it is sent). Other blocklist are slow and you will find that they will not release an IP as quick as SpamCop does. FIX YOUR PROBLEM NOW!
