  1. If SpamCop can't parse do it yourself. Look for line
    Authentication-Results: spf=none (sender IP is


    Received: from ubuntu-s-1vcpu-1gb-fra1-01 ([])

    So forward as attachment to network-abuse[AT]google.com

    All you put in forwarded message is

    Received   network-abuse[AT]google.com

    Source    abuse[AT]digitalocean.com

    Are SC reports ever directed to the "source" of the spam?

    Help if you sent a tracking URL

    Your email server collects a received IP address.that is are genuine IP a lot of spam has fake IP's stamped with the spam SpamCop will disregard these if there is something dodgy about it (no DNS etc)  example below.

    Received: from WINDOWS-COSBPNE (unknown []) my email server

    Forward and Reverse DNS lookups are performed to see, if the name to IP and IP to name DNS lookups produce the same results. This feature is used to see if DNS is correctly set up for a host and can be an indicator for a malicious host.

    I seem to remember that bt.com coming up in the past.  When I see an email address I sometimes DO forward copies directly.   Pretty sure that one only sends back some long winded BS auto responder which I don't even bother reading.  I don't know if they care or not.

    Email server change password   abuse@bt.com

    child porn source  anti-spam@ns.chinanet.cn.net   anti-spam@ns.chinanet.cn.net
    offending email forwarded also, can be read as text attachment with a text/ASCII editor like notepad or eml text reader

    Or... does google even care?  (Well they must, when I was being flooded   almost all of them went to google network abuse.  It's stopped so they must have done something.)

    Gmail/Google don't care about customers, to them they are just data fodder!
    Aside from reporting spam  mark it phishing

    f it's helpful, here's the tracking URL generated by SC when I attempted to report the latest Gmail spam.


    Thanks again and happy 2019: A new year full of hope and promise — and free from spam. 

    remove this line

    X-Received: by 2002:a5d:660e:: with SMTP id n14mr29805602wru.19.1546161368641;

    then it works if you can mark it as phishing all spam

    One or two of the dodgy emails I've had seem to have their origins the days before my provider moved away from Yahoo, who had had a couple of data breaches. The password was correct but an old one. I

    Still suspect info coming from old dumped servers. I said ADSL  but it was even before that, when I had 33.6 modem.

    So many getting these threats so it seems organised and from more than one source.  Seem to remember where junkied computers are sent to Africa and gangs take the data off them. Use the Windows FREE version of CCleaner to wipe drives select Tools/Drive Wiper. Formating won't remove info.  Wipe at least once then format the more times you wipe the longer it takes depending on drive size.

    DO NOT WIPE SSD (drives) you will destroy them!

    Really? Works fine for me. The Sent folder is good and email attachments sent to the Spamcop report addie can be viewed.


    I have so far found their support pretty good.


    Why 12 months? Haven't you been using it since  Corporate Email Services (CESmail) ceased  operations on September 30, 2014

    Was working fine for just over 12 months. Then it stopped saving sent reports, which they sort of fixed, but not quite as it behaved before?

    Before when I  sent the draft, I would delete the (spam) original and then have to go to sent folder to delete the "sent", now when I delete the spam the sent draft gets deleted too. Not that this is a real problem, as if I  save the original the sent also remains saved, which I copy and past BOTH to a specialty folder for future reference.

    I report all spam directly from Fastmail to China and theres a fair bit of (forward as attachment/show all headers) trouble is sometimes when finding the IP in headers I need to see the original, if a "draft" is open which it no longer allows! Again for 12 months was OK, someone has touched something and broke it, before it was fine. Could do this by scrolling page down then continue draft by scrolling up, now draft is just lock have to discard draft to see original. Very annoying

    Used to use Gmail to get my SpamCop email forwarded to then Gmail headers became rubbish and had to find a provider that suited me.

    Fastmail did was excellent but not any longer. Mainly because of not being able to read original when I are forwarding as attachment when it then becomes invisible.
