    Blocked for sending to a trap

    SpamCop spamtrap addresses are unique 352bit crackable/uncrackable email address (Banks only use 128bit) which would only be gathered by a "web bot spam spider" and or email sending virus! SpamCop spamtrap addresses have over 40 characters/numerals/non-numerals in them and are non-guessable (They can if spotted be used deliberately in a return address, however they are routinely taken off line and replaced) One report to a Spamtrap would not get an IP listed it would take a number like from a AUTORESPONDER? You can read it here Basically spammers send spam with "joe Job" return addresses (often spamcops spamtrap addresses)to non-existent addresses on ones server (as do email sending virus) To mindlessly bounce email is nowadays helping a spammer and will end one up on the SCBL Request for private assistance can be done by "clicking here Click

    Spamcop blocking affects the innocent

    Your problem is that neither you or your email provider know about email. Consider getting a SpamCop email account NO email is lost.You would be Getting the ONLY email address you will ever need encourage your recipients to do this also and they will recieve all email without spam going to their inbox (I am in Sydney Australia used SpamCops most exellent service for years) Your ISP is no doubt very happy in milking his ca$h cows (i.e. $YOU$) without offering a service If your ISP was on the ball you would never be blocked by SpamCop! SpamCop would of sent an email to their (your providers) registered address before being added to it's SCBL. The fix is quick and simple. Unfortunately many providers do not even have a working email address and or bother to read it. They just want to milk their cash cows SpamCop's members list (SCBL) does not block email addresses Every computer is allocated an IP address which should be stamped on email headers identifying to your provider whose computer sent the email which should also identify you. It is this IP number that SpamCop lists and many ISP's wisley use it to block as it will often list an IP addreses as it tries to spam not after the "spam run" which can take hours. This means a spammers run hits silicon hell in seconds. When spam from that IP address ceases that IP is then freed (SpamCop members use it to sort email while using a WhiteList meanining email is never bitbinned but sorted accuratly to a reporting folder where it is easily checked as spam then if not released, Very Easily Reported, also known as VER by SpamCop email users ) Some ISP's do not bother to have their email set-up compliant to world standards causing the next identifiable IP up the chain to be listed Check to see how accurate YOUR provider is Depending on how competent your or the email receiving ISP is. Should mean that if your computer is listed by SpamCop it has been hacked (unless you spam) and ALL information on it is available to this/these hackers. Your computer is then known as a ZOMBIE and access to it is sold to spammers so it can be used to send mass spam to the planet (If it contains credit card number bank accounts and passwords they will also have these, as well as your address for perhaps blackmail or even home invasion) In reality if SpamCop has your computer blocked it is perhaps telling you to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE NOW!! To secure your computer (at least check its secure) and keep it that way you should follow the links in my signature

    SpamCop parses site to hotmail?

    ROKSO spammers are professional spam gangs If one uses SpamCop Members sort list (otherise known as the SCBL)none of it would get to your in box

    Legal Action

    No problem for me. SpamCop is alway's perfect and of course the very best spam protection on the planet when used competently. I never get false positives or spam in my inbox (well maybe one a month) as I use it to sort email with my/a whitelist My SpamCop members sort list protects me and everyone else from drongo providers who bounce email/viruses to spamtraps as well as Job Job the planet! Then yell it's SpamCop's fault that we are annoying idiot's "Postmasters, please limit forgery blow-back" might wish to read before opening mouth for foot, or go away continuing to be ignorant

    confused by the blocked message

    Possibly you were on it? but are no longer on it SenderBase still say you are blocked by SpamCop (it takes a while to propagate around) Sounds like you are doing one of the following to SpamCops SpamTraps "Delayed bounces, virus notices, vacation messages and other forms of auto-response are frequently misdirected and can cause the sending systems to be blocked" Read about it by clicking here
  6. It needs to be the opposite? If one wishes to continue recieving your emails then they need to reply If you do NOT get a reply they are NEVER to be bothered again A good how to do this is by going to Bonded Sender and look at passage CONSENT and passage UNSUSCRIBE to see the riot act on professionalism
  7. If you are getting a copy of the spam in the bounced email report as I suggested (do not use SpamCop for this) make it a personal abuse report If there are no "attachments" showing you the spam and its source you can use spamcop for reporting the ISP for "misdirected bounces" (this is unlikley to be the source of the spam)
  8. You have to report (using the "DAT" or contained file in bounce) the source from where the spam is being sent from (you are not allowed o use SpamCop to do this) SpamCop can however help you in giving abuse addresses for personel reports Seems to work for me

    Password Size?

    Looks like JT is correct (30 is maximum) I just used random 26 lowercase/Upercase characters numbers (giving 208 bit security) and it works (numbers and Characters only no symbols) Willl change this shorty to an undisclosed (higher or lower) number as giving away password size is also a "clue" but 208 bit security is better than a banks
  10. What is the maximum size for passwords is 30 characters to many What characters can be used Personally I like to use between 45 and 60 random characters and numbers with symbols such as"=" signs included for maximum security Can this be accommodated or is one limited to upper & lower case QWERTY with numerals
  11. I agree The whitelist is hard to update I try to whitelist domains and only use specific domain addresses when it becomes a problem to keep the list shorter
  12. petzl

    Password Size?

    Yes JT has reset my password he believes the limit is 30 but right now not game to try it (Will try again next sunday Sydney Australia time) I don't expect much mail on Sunday Monday

    Password Size?

    I used 50 and are presently locked out No error message nothing so the limit is less than 50 (What the number is though I don't know) HotMail seems to be between 8 & 15 (at least the box only holds fifteen characters) I use 40 to 50 randomly generated uppercase lowercase qwerty characters with random numbers on most accounts I wish to be really secure (equal to 400 bits) I use a password saver on a USB drive so remembering them is no problem, The password file is also available (hidden) on my website also heavily encrypted by two different algorythm methods
  14. Bonded Sender The Original and the Best I would say this is important if it is not encouraged expect Bandwidth for "Very Easy Reporting" or VER to keep slowing down further and further Support from US SpamCop users would add momentum to the "profit line" of SpamCop's very dedicated users This whitelist will override all other selected blacklists (of course it is up to you/us whether you/we select it) I feel it is important that "we" endorse SpamCop's financial backers

    Why not whitelists

    I see BondedSender and SpamCop as ideal and complementery to each other and if one of BondedSenders customers does start spamming it's (1) easily traced by SpamCop & (2) easily and immediatly blocked by SpamCop Remember for properly configured e-mail servers SpamCop easily blocks the SOURCE without blocking the server it went through Once dedicated and Whitelisted e-mail servers become the norm, it will mean only whitelisted e-mail servers will be accepted by well everyone and children starting on internet will only associate spam with spam (that exellent meal in a tin)

    Why not whitelists

    To use Bonded Sender whitelist is free and as easy to use as a Blacklist Bonded sender to be listed are not free and require a Bond each SINGLE spam Complaint costs that user US$20 Bonded Server is free for one to use as a whitelist to subscribe it has to be paid for It is needed now will people use it is another matter. That letter from your Bank or Solicitor WOULD arrive if Bonded sender was used Check out BondedSenders Riot act to see

    spam or virus

    Thanks for the link I were not aware of them but are now. AVG has been around for a while and seems to be as good (if not better) as any paid for anti-virus product. Wonder when Microsoft will have a "tack-on" virus detector Chinese are internet hopeless! They probably have infected machines that send out virus's to all their spam victims? I only use a spamcop e-mail address and do not see any of their mindless rubbish. Any good provider would allow you to block all of China because of to many spam tolerent/ignorant providers. This also applies to their seemingly endless number of virus infected machines If you use a firewall and EVERYONE should (ideally BOTH hardware and software) Software minimum type You will see virus (amongst other deliberate attackers) always trying to access/attack and infect through various ports every few seconds

    spam or virus

    Another reason to use SpamCop email (The ONLY email address you will ever need) as SpamCop checks all incoming email for both spam and Virus You should always run your own Virus program with latest definitions For windows uses check the links in my signature the Virus program I mention is not only as good as the best its free and reasonably low on system resources The other links are also now compulsory for a secure internet (wndows)computer all programs are free for individual use

    Why not whitelists

    Actually I have been a long ignored supporter of using a whitelist odd shot fired without response Not sure what the reason for at least SpamCop e-mail to implement it? Probably does blacklist guru's out of a job

    Remove link

    Nothing necessarily to do with illegality (It however may be). The person concerned specifically asked for the links to be removed. Not knowing why? Could be adult content etc, or just inappropriate. The best people to rule on this are the Domain registrar, particularly if there are no warnings for underage (this, as a for instance, could constitute illegality) Some use false weblinks for "phishing" which is often an illegal act also

    Remove link

    Make the complaint to the domain registrar that they have unauthorisrised links to your websites and demand that these sites be closed <EOM>

    Why not whitelists

    A reason why DUL is never used is that all email Headers have a DUL IP in them meaning all email would fail unless whitelisted A spammer only has to call his computer ""Whitelist IP" and regardless of where it was sent from because it had a "whitelist IP" mentioned in headers it would go to ones inbox (whitelists over ride all blocklists) It may be certain POP servers could identify a IP in a specific manner but most just "Keyword search headers" first for whitelist (if none) then for blacklist
  23. petzl

    Why not whitelists

    Yep the answer or solution to everyone's problem is to get the only email address you will ever need no email is ever lost by using SpamCops email system's blocking lists (mainly because it is thought out and set up correct) I get about 1 spam a month in my inbox which is easily dragged to my reporting folder (using IMAP) IMAP can also be used to easily whitelist email addresses by dragging them to reporting folder and then released by "Send and Whitelist" "button"

    I'm blocked

    You may also be right However my advice to keep ones computer secure still stands Part of a security problem would be using an incompetent and or spam friendly ISP (they often collect email addresses passing through there servers to add to spam lists maybe even keep copies of creditcard numbers or more) SpamCop tries to go beyond mail servers and identifies actual individual computers that are spam sources. If an ISP masks this source through malformed IP addresses (incompetence/no rDNS) then the last traceable/identifiable IP is added to SpamCop Members Blocklist to sort probable spam into spam folders (for checking and reporting if it is spam)

    I'm blocked

    You email address is not listed or blocked Your computer is open and everything on it is available to everyone Some are even using it to send their spam from it this is why SpamCops members have your computer listed Please read my signature AND
