  1. I believe you are on the right track. I always try to refer to the list as our SpamCop Members List It just sounds friendlier (Like the Words DON'T PANIC) and would avoid the complaints about those choosing to use this list. A few people forever try to reason that the SCBL because it is named a blocklist is designed to bit-bin email? While it can do this it is meant to sort email to a spam folder (Idealy for reporting), which I and a major majority find it accurately does
  2. You have checked your Held Folder? You can check non spam email for whitelisting and forward You have your Domain Name naturalbridgecaverns.com listed in your whitelist? (Also check your personal blacklist) You have put your (one) "anybody<at>naturalbridgecaverns<dot>com" through Mailhosts? Just click the MailHost TAB in your Held Folder? If possible collect your SpamCop email directly from "pop.spamcop.net" do not have SpamCop forward email to your email domain This means simply less to go wrong and SpamCop's email is probably MUCH faster than your server anyhow. Forwarding is an unnecessary step and removes the problems arising from somewhere/one else

    WTF is laposte.net blocked ?

    Why is "Nim" mailing list getting on SpamCop's SCBL (is the question to ask)? I am on a number of mail lists none I get have yet appeared on the SCBL? The best thing is to recommend to those on mail lists is to use a hotmail account for them if this is the case (but not an answer as to why) If one gets bounced because of a blocklist they need to remove that address from their mail list (this is so simple I do not see the problem with it?) They of course need to have a working reply address (Most competantly set up mail servers will bounce one or two emails not 1000's of Joe Job's) It is also easy to check the posting IP's of a mailing list to see if they are on any Blocklist and figure out why. This shooting a messenger argument does wash. A/the cause for being listed needs to be worked out and the fix applied

    I've been blacklisted

    This is probably why you are getting on SpamCops list By bouncing email you are, at best/worst DOS attacking the email addresses of those who report spam. The email reply addresses are usually used by spammer's as a Joe Job Disable bounce "feature" of mailwasher, which is being stupidly and wrongly set by default Bounces are in effect what MailWasher is doing but only to valid and innocent parties email addresses (mailwasher may check email address for validity, before sending a bounce)

    WTF is laposte.net blocked ?

    The problem is you are assuming http://www.laposte.net/ is innocent? I do not see where the majority of the worlds language users (english) are given an oppotuinuty to object to the bounces they DOS everyone with!

    I've been blacklisted

    To find out your Computers IP Try this site MailWasher is not as good as a SpamCop Email account but it is probably the next best thing and has a whitelist facility, allowing suspicious email to be viewed in text only mode before being downloaded Your ISP IF competent and set up properly (meaning they should have a registered abuse[at] address and rDNS set) would be the one receiving abuse/spam reports SpamCop predominantly lists computers spewing spam to it's members Sorting List as the spam is being sent not after ( in a few seconds). When the spam stops the IP is released quickly as well. This effectivly sends a spam run (which takes hours) to Silicon hell (Bit Bin) for those smart enough to use SpamCop members SCBL. Meaning the spam run is mainly dumped before the spammer sends, So sending spam to a person who reports spam when its recieved, quickly blocks it before anyone else gets it. People are finding attack is the best form of defense against these criminals
  7. Petzls tips for marketing by email Assuming you are using Best Practice (look under Consent) You also need to use a common email address and do not change it. Many ISP's use a number of Blocklists (sometimes ISP's just send you to SpamCop if you are on any of them!) With a WhiteList it will override any BlackList making sure your email passes. Always state for users to list your domain name in their email whitelist. I always reccomend Hotmail address for mass emails/news lists to be sent to (using a 8 or better alphanumeric logon like 1_2_Buckle_my_shoe_3_4[at]hotmail.com Also ask for your clients to respond every six months to keep your mailing list legitimate if no response use snail mail/telephone to contact them further
  8. Not on spamcops blocklist? not listed in bl.spamcop.net I also went through every mail server you have, do not see them mentioned as blocked If you have a bounce letter it may shine a better light?

    I think I've been blacklisted

    Although is not blocked by SpamCop Google are showing ignored concerns also SpamCop is not sending reports to abuse<AT>godaddy.com ? for this IP (looks like aZOMBIE to me
  10. Yes it appears that the mail servers themselves may have an infection? On a windows machine it is a must to keep windows secure! although this virus infects linux servers Malware known as Cheese I have been doing some looking around and appears that cybersurf may have a security problem themselves and with their email servers? http://isc.sans.org/source_report.php?subnet=209.197.145 or http://www.dshield.org/ipdetails.php?ip=
  11. Someone using IP is infected and their computer has become a Zombie The Subject of a spam going through this IP is or was It pays to go through my signature to check that it's not you and both you and your mother have a secure windows computer
  12. Nope? but that page was put up only after I submitted a abuse report? However the kiddie porn bit did seem suspiciously overboard and accept the poor sod is being attacked by scammers. Hopefully he can have the law work on his side Whomever posted through a European Zombie the ISP will have logs and a spanish jail room ready for the fraudsters
  13. Sent to a legacy (Non SC) email account this was the email address in spam body dynamoo<AT>spamcop<DOT>net if you click it this address is also on the spamvertised contact URL
  14. Losing services to GOOD email providers are we? As to your statistics fitting catagory of lies damn lies then there are statistics For instance I don't know why my present provider as do all providers stick one with a compulsory email address? I and a great many like me, just don't want and won't bother using! So your 20 million of French spam targets means??? My list of partners also do not use the email account their ISP sticks them with either I wouldn't be interested in using your server if you also did not effectively and accurately protect me from spam as SpamCop Email Service does Wonder how many other paying customers feel this way. I do not use any Australian providers for a trusted and reliable email account. I just use and pay for SpamCop email account. (I'm in Sydney Australia) Many of which also have infomercials on TV or magazines all proved to me to be worse than usless. My business relies on my receiving email without overdoses of spam and or losing email to do so would cost me my livelihood.
  15. If you are ending up on our SpamCop members list, which we (SpamCop email users) use for sorting potential spam email, you have a problem Many ISP's borrow this list to very effectively and accurately protect their user's from Joe Job's, spam virus attacks, etc. by simply bitbinning email although not intended for this. Private users also use many different programs such as MailWasher There are lists created by major providers (i.e. AOL, MSN, etc) which are not public and will just bitbin without any warning. The fact is if you are on SpamCop's SCBL you are most likley getting yourself listed on a major majority of private blacklists, in which you don't know you are on and are very hard to get removed from. (For instance my company operates such secret blacklists as do most) A major concern should be that if you use a static IP (and you do not spam) your computer is a Zombie This means every thing on it is not private Example News story The next possibility is if you are a system administrator you are bombing people with denial of service attacks called a Joe Job if so you immediatly need to adjust your system to modern best practice of today "Postmasters, please limit forgery blow-back" If you have a windows computer go through the links in my signature which are free programs for private users and should get your computer secure If you post the IP concerned here better (IMO the best) advice will be given to you on how to correct your system's problem even if you do operate a marketing system (People here can advise on Best Practice

    Help Please?

    You can by reading the headers identify the ISP and possibly the town the email came from further checks in google can often identify the person sending the email If you can identify the IP in the email header you past it into the box Here and it should show you the town where the posting came from Pasting the same IP in this box should identify the ISP
  17. Many spamvertised sites are setup on hacked Zombie computers meaning it takes to long to for spamcop to verify that site is live You can report these sites yourself a exellent windows tool for this is SpamDeputy Also checkout the sites on my signature to ensure ones computer is secure
  18. Some online bank users blocked because of spyware threat http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3215585a11,00.html

    Why not whitelists

    Sounds like rubbish to me? They have no customers or reputation that I know of? I do not see anybody but themselves touting their claims as true! This the CEO there is a product developed/bought for CISCO systems called Zombie Killer which seems to be at the heart of Kelkea (MAPS) service

    Blocked for sending to a trap

    Return-Path: deputies<AT>admin<DOT>spamcop<DOT>net is a working email address which you can reply to and SpamCop will try to answer in 24 hours Your "subscriber" who uses an unguessable spamcop spamtrap address (over 40 characters/numerals long) does not want you to send them email. If you have to contact them you will have to use the Postal Service and or telephone (3am calls are best usually home) I do not see how they subscribed in first place using a SpamTrap address. You sound like you are sending email to a unconfirmed address All subscription email addresses are first sent one email letter and ONLY if that address is replied to further contact can be made A resnoble rendition of email standards is in BondedSender loook under CONSENT and UNSUBSCRIBE

    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
  24. petzl

    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
