    Need Some Advice on a Spam Problem

    The best way to deter spammers is to attack! SpamCop's email system accurately sorts email from spam and allows, through an automated process (using SpamCop) for you to very easily go through all of sorted spam in your "held" folder and "Very Easily Report (VER)" all spam. You can also easily forward any (unlikely) false positives to what ever email address you wish (this only costs US$30 a year and you have two weeks to find if it's not your cup of tea and get a refund ) Spammers are now being targeted by the law with appropriate convictions. If you are just deleting spam you are not effective in dealing with problem. SpamCop when reporting often sends extra reports to investigators. When spam passes through certain IP's I note in one example Hotmail get a copy of that spam, as well as the abuse desk of the source IP address (the actual computer that sent the spam), while not sent from their mailing host the spam has passed through it and SpamCop is watching that IP for hotmail SpamCop usually just tracks spam to IP source. Many big companies have "honeypots" and need evidence to go after these spammers, who are now not safe in any country. There are already a number of abuse desks signed up wth SpamCop email and or SpamCop Reporting for this purpose By the way I'm in Sydney Australia and have no connections with SpamCop other than being a impressed user with a bullet proof email address since before last century

    why am i being blacklisted

    It means your ISP is an idiot and you should find a more competent one If you send the IP address that is being blocked one can give a better more comprehensive answer (NEVER GIVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN FORUMS spammers do scan for them)
  3. Positives in using SpamCop to report spam Try quick reporting. Make sure you configure "mail hosts" first, then there is no wait. But URL's in spam will not be reported Aside from getting a spammer listed by the SCBL (1) which stops spam as it is being sent not after it is sent (makes it te most effective blocklist to use) (2) SpamCop notifies the listed owner of the IP address sending spam (3) By reporting spam it alerts ISP's of criminal activity (4) Increasingly more and more spammers face the courts because of reporting spam (5) Just blocking spam without reporting has minimum impact on spam (SpamCop will send a abuse report) (6) The most effective way of attacking spam and spammers is through a SpamCop Email account Although MailWasher is very good (turn off "bounce feature") a SpamCop Email account is superior and helps finance SpamCop (7) With spam, attack is your best defence. SpamCop allows one to do this easily and accurately

    Filters Started Leaking

    Just a reminder that sometimes when in VER "Forward (do not whitelist sender)" one can miss a beat and select "Forward (and whitelist sender)" Which auto enters it (email address) So if you find your email address forged and passing through filters you will need to go to your Whitelist and delete your address

    Who uses the blocklist?

    Aside from getting a spammer listed by the SCBL (1) which stops spam as it is being sent not after it is sent (2) SpamCop notifies the listed owner of the IP address sending spam (3) By reporting spam it alerts ISP's of criminal activity (4) Increasingly more and more spammers face the courts because of reporting spam (5) Just blocking spam without reporting has minimum impact on spam (6) The most effective way of attacking spam and spammers is through a SpamCop Email account Although MailWasher is very good (turn off "bounce feature") a SpamCop Email account is superior and helps finance SpamCop (7) With spam, attack is your best defence.

    ARG! Mail is blocked! HELP!

    If you are being blocked and your ISP is competent it means your computer is trojanised and is spewing spam. SpamCop only tries to "block" the actual computer sending the spam I take it you have none of the windows (XP©) precautions listed in my signature? like virus detection with latest definitions or firewall? If not it means aside from spammers every thug on the planet can gain access to everything on your computer (where you live, when you are home, when you are not, photos etc) Microsoft will give you for 3 months all of this (then it costs US$40 for 3 computers annually) Microsoft Windows OneCare You will also need to download Defender another free Microsoft product This works in conjuntion with Microsoft Windows OneCare

    Microsoft Debuts Windows Live OneCare

    do not remove Microsofts (Beta) AntiSpyware WINDOWS DEFENDER as it is needed for "Windows Live OneCare" So far (presently) 90 day trail product can only be upgraded for USa residents. Billing is to be automatic annual re-billing and one must sign up to Microsoft Passport?
  12. Microsoft Debuts Windows Live OneCare 90 day trail then US$50 for three computers per annum Just trying it out and find it to use a lot less system resources than the one I removed Doing a virus scan now and still able to use computer no troubles Had to remove Zone Alarm and my Virus program (This program requires freeware Windows Defender)

    Microsoft Debuts Windows Live OneCare

    I doubt if Microsoft can just add it to their "suite" Doing so woould probably be considered anti competitive I have only tried it tonight it is (so far) a good choice and at a very competive (½ price to say Nortons "System Works" and for 3 computers).Which I have just removed (2005 version) to try out what I see as Windows version. So far I find it superior in that while scanning (doing a full scan) I can still work my computer At present it is offered for a free 90 day trail so one can do nothing or try the new all-in-one, always-on PC care service from Microsoft

    Microsoft Debuts Windows Live OneCare

    The program comes with a Firewall, Virus detector, Spyware detector, unnesscary programs removal, Windows enhancer (read the verbals for it on it's web page) Unfortunatly program can only be installed online and with no firewall or virus program running so there is risk (I also use a hardware firewall)
  15. Same here, today's was "Check it out!!!!!!!!" from open proxies world wide Hopefully SpamCop abuse report will close these holes None get past my VER (spam) folder Don't see the spammers point either It's as if they want these open proxies closed. All are on multitudes of blacklists, SpamCop email not only blocks them but notifies the various ISP's, most email blocklists do not sort spam, just deletes it. Wondering if this spammer is targeting SpamCop addresses as SpamCop email and VER does close security links?
  16. Other hosts in this "neighborhood" with spam reports 85.192.15.8 85.192.15.18 85.192.16.9 Aside from sending to SpamCop Spamtraps which use better than bank security alphanumeric addresses (unguessable) There are or have been a largish number of spam messages also.

  17. Don't seem to get rubbish from the China leaks again once I point it out.
  18. The ISP only accepts "unmunged" reports so many compliants it wouuld not be gettting sent to abuse#net1plus.com[at]devnull.spamcop.net many would be just bitbined and added to SpamCops statistics and SCBL
  19.

    No recent reports, no history available

  21. Derek T is "bang on" your ISP has it's email server misconfigured and is not logging in the email headers the Source IP of the computer that is sending the spam Example of how a Source IP is detected with a properly configured email server http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z954372779zccd9c25447bb065338ed20eb5b48aabaz In this example it is my Computers IP (210.50.143.20) detected and SpamCop would, only after telling my ISP, block my computer (Not my ISP's email server) This message was sent through hotmail Note how spamcop optionally sends Abuse Reports to third parties If the only IP listed by an incompetent provider is their email server it (after sending a great many abuse reports, more than would be sent by SpamCop for a single computer) It will eventually by listed by our SpamCop Members SCBL Do not automatically accept an ISP's compulsory email address Consider using a state of art SpamCop Email Address
  22. No reports back since the 15th (As a email SpamCop subscriber/reporter I do not see an option to disable reports and would not want this) What happened to the "forum" graph showing SpamCop reporting rate? I are also not getting reports back also not seeing IP's being shown as reported? such as this one http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z947663159zc6f221aac1743c56974654fd76cf24faz No evidence IP 84.97.161.139 has come up for scoring on the SCBL

    Yahoo webmail blocked...or?

    I have a hotmail account which is more of a spamtrap but I do also use it as point of first email contact to check if they pass email address on I'm not sure either as to what injecting a Brazil IP 200.241.35.79 means either? but this clowns spam software does (different IP's for each spam) What Microsoft and Ironport SpamCop's owners amongst many others do, do is set up Honey Pots and computers in various countries they allow to get "Zombie" infected then track the sending computer where they do get the residential address Ironport seem to have been behind the conviction of this spammer To me there is no doubt they and most others also use spam reports sent through SpamCop to further track these culprits down

    Yahoo webmail blocked...or?

    This (x-line forgeries) is done/tried by an annoyed spammer but does not fool SpamCop at all http://mailsc.spamcop.net/sc?id=z941425357ze1bb0c213a0b2591ee9dcb29ffb0e914z This spammer annoyed at me closing all his porn web sites and the links they went to has/is attempting to Joe Job various websites. All spammer is doing is closing the hole he and other spammers posts through. As well as chancing the legal wrath of Microsoft (who I notify)
