    Filter based on a blocklist?

    What makes the SCBL so effective is that while a spammer tries to send millions of spam over 3 or 4 hours the SCBL can have the sending IP blocked in seconds and then bit bit the spammers spew. The SCBL acts like a radar blocking as soon as a spammer tries to send, then freeing that IP when the spam stops being reported A problem of using SpamCop members SCBL to only bit bin spam is that, this spam goes unreported and come off the SCBL . It is best to always have blocklists sort probable spam to a "sorting" folder for releasing whitelisting and or reporting.Reporting blocked spam via Spamcop keeps the offending IP on the worlds best blocklist the SCBL The only spam Free email account that I know of that complies with this (and more) is a SpamCop Email Account which will give you the only email address you will ever need

  4. Did you press the BLUE SUBMIT button after selecting them (this button is often missed) The only thing that will over ride a blacklist is your WhiteList check the entries
  5. Log in Here This graphic shows the filters I select THEN PUSH THE BLUE SUBMIT BUTTON once/after you have checked all the boxes (under check boxes) for it to be activated You also need to setup MailHosts by clicking MailHost Tab This link allows you to log on to your Very Easy Reporting (VER) WebPage. If you can set up your email client for IMAP (do NOT set it for "auto polling" (no need for this unless you wish it) you can drag friends email to your held folder then use VER WebPage and select scroll to FORWARD (and WhiteList Sender) will have all your known email on your WhiteList making sure they are never blocked

    Submitting as a mole

    Spammers have your email address and often get this, your address, because of an ISP's incompetence. You are best to dump or let existing email addresses become legacy after a time. Once they get into a spammers circulation spam attacks just grow and grow, a weeks reporting of spam is to early to judge the effectiveness of SpamCop. Spammers are not that bright and take time to work out who is burning them If they can work it out at all. Thats if they even bother (theirs is purely a numbers game looking for suckers) Reporting them and their websites does deter spam However if you are starting at the deep end on a well abused email address it is best to change it Just face up to using your SpamCop Email Address It's the only email address you will ever need Using Very Easy Reporting (VER) makes reporting very easy and quick (make sure you configure your mailhosts first. Done effectively and easily on/via your VER Web Page. Make no error by reporting you are attacking spammers using the powerful tools SpamCop provide and attack is your best defence
  7. Not me, your email server is fine?

Good bye.
  8. The proper use of a SpamFilter to HOLD probable spam, then a message sent to addressee to report, delete, retrieve and or "whitelist" said message shop stop the mindless bounce to whoever (in this case a spamcop spamtrap address which is around 256 bit security to "guess" and got by the use of "spam webspiders") Suggest you consider using the Planets best and most acurate SpamFilter SpamCop Members SCBL this should then stop spam hitting auto-responders if configured correctly With all spam Filters it is best to use to SORT potential spam to a "hold" folder for addressee's to then report, delete, retrieve and or "whitelist" said messages (with a message containing above advice sent to the addressee that potentail spam is in held folder from ""100[at]123cv.cxm along with subject)

    My email blocked

    According to what I read your email server is sending email to SpamCop spamtraps (which are equal to around 256 bit encryption to "guess") This could be because of "Out of Office" replies to spam messages (this is common during holiday/vacation) Suggest your SpamFilter include the best and most accurate spam filter on the Planet to hold messages (thus stopping mindless auto-replies) which is SpamCop Members SCBL this should then stop spam hitting auto-responders if configured correctly With all spam Filters it is best to use to SORT potential spam to a "hold" folder for addressee's to then report, delete, retrieve and or "whitelist" said messages (with a message containing above advice sent to the addressee that potentail spam is in held folder from ""100[at]123cv.cxm along with subject) SpamCop tries to identify the source of spam being sent. In this case it stops at (your?) email server "" Meaning the last identifiable chain in tracking source is your email server (SpamCop can on properly configured IP's name the source computer and block that. It stops at last IP certainty) The block can also and often mean a user of this email server has either a virus or a Trojan abuse reports are being sent to abuse[at]sbcglobal.net since 13th of December (very active on 22nd of December last report made on 27th of December 2005 submitted 10:07:34 AM +1100:) Try to encourage users of your system to follow the links in my Sig which offers freeware Windows protection which is as good if not better than most paid software but only legal for private use

    relaying denied?

    You can, instead of having email forwarded, just "pop" spamcop the SpamCop email servers are as fast or faster than the ISP you deal with now Advantage is you take one less problem out of equation. Ideally just use your [at] SpamCop email address and that removes buggy ISP's entirely

    Submitting as a mole

    I do not munge I do use SpamCop's Email Service and my only email address is Petzl[at]spamcop.net I do not attempt to even hide this email address and have used it since last century Fact is I do not recommend one accept an email address automatically from an ISP as they are always useless. At best nothing better than a unprotected spam magnet My SpamCop email very near 100% does not give false positives or negatives for me. The only spam that manages to get to my inbox is where I have whitelisted whole domains that a spammer decides to use as a return address. This is simply pulled over to my VER folder using IMAP and fully reported I have also helped have some spammers face conviction by court, a reason why I do not munge spam email also not a problem because I use SpamCop's Email Service as my only email address

Not sure how long they react to this Moderator edit: merged into an existing Topic on the same subject.
  19. The most effective way to deal with spammers and make reporting them easy is to consider getting a SpamCop Email account This account is a very powerful spam protection system that can collect email from all your existing email accounts. It will sort and send only legitimate email to your inbox with all spam sent to a Very Easy Reporting (VER) folder. Which after a quick check to see it is spam, you can then report with three clicks of your mouse sending spammers to silicon hell in a instant I am in Sydney, Australia and have used this system since its beginning and it is extremely effective. I now do not use any other email address but my bullet proof petzl[at]spamcop.net with out fear of spammers

    Help! Being threatened with lawsuit!

    As you have been threatened and have the time ask for Lawyers name and make a formal complaint to "Law society" Also look up a "No win no Pay law firm yourself" these in Australia have a near 100% success as they will not take on a case they remotely look like losing Not that I believe a cartooney is nothing but bluff The fact is they thmselves may find threats can be costly
  21. SpamCop email has/is agian returned to being 100% effective for me (so far) thanks

  24. Just interested in what the method is now for capturing spam It may be that no information is best policy I can accept such, but if the blocklist is dead turn it off
