    That's right SpamCop Members List is to sort probable spam OK looking at SenderBase I saw it listed as a mail server And another is to slow sending spam to a painful crawl meaning the Spammers server gets backlogged (Would like JT to add this feature to mail from such places as China Brazil and other known spam Sources They would still after 3 hours sending one spam end up in our spam Folder)

    CORRECTED FOR swingspacers SpamCop will try to list the computer sending spam (not the email server) However the IP 194.73.73.211 is in Congleton United Kingdom and is a mail server and seems to, or may be a Zombie. Your email headers contained this IP address. The way many blocklists work is it "keyword" searches email headers for "banned" IP addresses Clicking HERE will tell you what your computers IP is and where you are

    194.73.73.211 or c2bthomr03.btconnect.com is or was Listed reported with subject "BUSINESS STATIONERY SPECIALISTS" SenderBase is showing IP is going off it's brain in sending spew Pay to read my signature if this IP is yours?
  4. In SpamCop Email (the only email address you will ever need) you put in mydomain.com do not put in [at]mydomain.com In my whitelist I get a fair amount of email from TZ which generaly ends in TZ so by putting TZ in whitelist ALL "from" email addresses ending in TZ are passed I also do this with most Australian domain names like vagabond.com.au this lets a bit a spam through that would otherwise be blocked, but so far not a problem ( note do not use .TZ in white/blacklist) My Blacklist I have yahoo.com, hotmail.com but in whitelist put in FULL [at] address of people I know using these domains/email services For instance hard_[at]guess<AT>hotmail.com gets through but other [at]hotmail.com do not So far I get little spam if TZ becomes a problem C an easily remove it from Whitelist (Remember a whitelist overides ALL blacklists)
  5. (1) When an email is sent to confirm sender receives it a "read receipt" is included with email. As to getting lots of email some investigation is done where further evidence may be required (2) Usually refusing SpamCop reports is done because of cluelessness or not wanting to offend their "nice paying customers" This mainly means they won't respond to personal abuse reports either In email subject line of my personal abuse reports to such losers, I simply would put (In this case) "PERMANENT EMAIL BLOCK FOR IP RANGE 85.155.32.0 to 85.155.38.255" which is ALL of "CABLEMODEM-AUNA-CANARIAS" network. Don't know if if helps probably not, often/always such companies find themselves being added to more and more blocklists. The good bit is they sometimes think its you who have initiated their problems of being added to blocklists (in reality it's themselves)
  6. TIANJIN BROADCAST &TV NETWORK CO.£¬LTD (CHINA) starting IP 211.148.160.0 end 211.148.190.255 JT once said he would "hotwire" his own chinese IP's for blocking?
  7. more Chinese leaking 58.66.103.90 Google Sightings Range start 58.66.0.0 end 58.67.255.255
  8. Yes and Microsoft is starting to recommend removal of non genuine windows parts already
  9. Ok everyone should be able to see them now on the SCBL
  10. Stock Spammer using Chinese IP 60.221.56.178 Please add this range to china block 60.220.0.0 60.223.25.255 Those logged into VER should be able to see

    what the h#*l is that

    Welcome to the "new world order" Australian "Supermarkets" are into a annoying habit of moving/changing product whereabouts of goods The "official" explanation is that they wish all stores to be uniform with one The real reason is that the current "text book" (they all use) states the longer you can keep customers in stores the more they buy Television current "textbooks" claim that by delaying advertised program times (often by 30 minutes) It "hooks" people into watching 30 minutes of some boring horror like "the young and the useless" to get you hooked on both programs Politics are finding that using the "Power of Nightmares" keeps you effectively voting for someone you probably shouldn't (banned in the USa & probably Australia) A Canadian Magician friend of mine "The GREAT Wazzoo" (of all names) Makes animal balloons which he sells to kids, his carnival operatives "pop" the balloons The kids cry and parents buy more? I find it hard to believe that "uselessness" or dopiness is a theme that ISP's use to cover up the antics they all use from the SAME text book other ISP's use is believable

    In the mean time for four days now Alselphia.net are still spewing spam as fast as the modem can push it out. This is only one of a great many zombies pouring out spew from different providers In this case I have sent unmunged reports and even contacted Aldelphia by their web form. Still the spew continues with no end in site I most certainly believe that many ISP's do find they conveniently make money by allowing this to happen In fact ISP's are often the source of the trojan that starts it as this article I believe correctly infers Your ISP may be hosting spam zombies!

    what the h#*l is that

    Not many in Australia New Zealand and much of Europe that do not charge for excess bandwidth Particually with cheaper end monthly accounts (example) Regional Residential ADSL 512/128k 512K Value/200MB 6 month contract $24.95 CC 200MB Free then 15c/MB (they do have a maximum charge limit of $35 on top of this however) Whats your expalnation for Adelphia not stopping this Zombie spew (I have sent them over 20 unmunged reports since sunday and still sending, all are being caught in my VER folder). Bandwidth is not free and someone will have to cough up. I'm also told that you are wrong about the USA not charging (particually) those that have minimal accounts not being charged extra for excess bandwidth (I would also be going over the/your ISP fine print)
  15. Plagerised from Reduce spam by educating your ISP spam zombies make money for the ISP Think about it. If one residential user's PC is sending 100,000 spams/day, and we assume a typical spam message is 4 Kb, that's a transmission of more than 11 Gb/month! Most ISPs are going to charge an extra fee to a residential, broad-band user for using so much bandwidth. What's worse is that ignorant users may not realize why their bandwidth is so high (when they see the surcharges on their bill). When they phone up the customer support about thier bill, the ISP may encourage them to upgrade to a higher forfeit bandwidth package. Zombies are not the only reason why bandwidth usage could be high. Peer-to-peer applications (BitTorrent, E-mule, etc.) are very popular. A user running one of these applications and also infected with a zombie would have to be fairly sophisticated to be able to know what percentage of bandwidth was due to zombie spams originating from his PC. I'm not saying that ISPs have a formal policy to not shut down zombies because they generate traffic. But it's clear that if we allow them to keep their zombies, they are profiting from it!

    Lack of SMTP Service

    You are right SpamCop NEEDS a SMTP server Even if it becomes a SpamCop Plus (Bond required) to deter some loon not securing their computer or even spamming If bond lost it be donated to SpamCops Legal fund (suggestion) To get Plus back again another US$100 bond be paid. The losing of this money is entirerly at the descretion of Email owner/operator or his appointed minder/s (SpamCop Deputies?) Windows users only have to ensure they are at least using the freeware (microsoft ones you have already paid for) programs my Signature links refer to, to maintain secure computing IE-SPYAD while worth considering is not needed (Unless the PC is operated by "Naive" users) (the password saver is freeware for 20 passwords usable both from PC as well as from USB - SpamCop email have a maximum of 30 keyboard characters I sugest using a minimum of at least eight Alphanumeric characters 30 random alpha characters are equal to 240bit security, Banks use 128 bit security)

    what the h#*l is that

    It seems reporting the website has many removed which helps deter spammers The problem is, as always, providers reacting to abuse reports not at all? http://www.senderbase.org/?searchBy=ipaddr...204.186.129.219 shows your reported IP still spewing spam up 12000% over a day SpamCop has most if not all of these IP's blocked very early in the piece PAys to dump your provider if they have not protected the email address they dump on you (these are NOT free) Demand a discount for the crappy "service" they have you pay for as compensation for not using their compulsory email This link explains why "spam zombies make money for the ISP Think about it.

I'm saying many ISP's have a formal policy not to shut down zombies! Get a SpamCop email account The only email address you will ever need Get
  18. I had two bounces which included the addresses They were in alpahbetical order but looked like just masses of email addresses. The servers on what I see as new trogans are really spewing spam like up over 5000% a day (I have found 4 zombies now being used for this spam attack) Don't understand german but sites referanced seem to be anti-immigration into Germany?
  19. http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblock&ip=69.166.151.154 It's listed as a dialup by MAPS? Possibly now a zombie cable modem The owner has not read my signature (seems to be attacking spamcop addresses? All are addressed to mailhost<AT>spamcop<DOT> net with a different from address) Reported 6 times today 69.166.151.154 Is sending German political nonsense linking to various german webbased chat forum sites IP locator has it's German source as Cleveland, OH, US SenderBase has it spewing email today, going up in stats every time I look at present up 1155% over 30 days (lunch time Sydney was 115%)

    what the h#*l is that

    This arse is sending masses of them from realitivly new trojanised IP's like http://www.senderbase.org/?searchBy=ipaddr...g=219.89.113.14 http://www.senderbase.org/?searchBy=ipaddr...=69.166.151.154 Now to wait for the bounces

    what the h#*l is that

    Yes they have been sending to me and getting reported and blocked http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z763884465ze1...7e333bb9e5902ez I'm suspecting some spammer grub has found these "forums" and is just putting email addresse in them? (Mine seem to be sent to spamcop domains possiby a disgruntled spammer ) Keep reporting them at last it keeps the trojanised PC in the SCBL
  22. Now that this clown has blocked that (69.166.151.154) IP "it" has now switched to IP 210.23.137.241 still sending to a spamcop domain address last being X-User<AT>spamcop<DOT>net Just seemed to take a lot of abuse reports to block a "DUL"

    URLs not reported

    What you see in Windows is not what a "safe" or text browser sees SpamCop tries to resolve URL's before reporting them. If SpamCop cannot connect it won't report (SpamCop tries to err on the side of caution) this is what a safe browser from SamSpade see's You can however report these URL's yourself if you have time and think there is a need to (The site is in german and even the translation makes little sense to me Seems to be an imigration site?)
  24. Probably find help on many sites Abuse Net has a very7 good one If you go to spamcops website you can also get copies of SpamCop abuse reports by clicking HERE.
  25. For windows machines Password Depot offers 20 passwords for doing this in freeware mode. Which makes logging in a doddle and secure. This program will work from your PC, a USB drive as well (on any other Windows computer) remember the maximum password length for webmail is 30 characters (alphanumeric is best) You need a password of your own to access and open the PasswordDepot list you create
