    Amazonaws is evil. Amazonaws rapes my inbox with crap I did not ask for and do not want.

    By dropping Amazon and their subsidiaries from purchases forever  will cost them more than the free spamming accounts from their "Free email accounts" that we are being hammered with.

    Looks like this is only for iOS and iPad.   I think what I'm describing can be accomplished with AppleScript, interfacing with Apple Mail -- I just don't know how to do it. 

    Don't have a Apple mobile but they describe it as 
    "Download AltaMail and enjoy it on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch."

    volume has not tailed off for me.

    AWS don't care and lie or don't know their job sending me 
    "We were unable to identify the customer responsible for the reported activity. Due to the frequency with which AWS public IP addresses can change ownership, we will need additional information in order to identify the responsible customers"
    Which is rubbish. the only port their  IP's have open is port 53, none are email servers, They need to block port 25 on machines that are NOT email servers
    I replied (as above) and spam has dropped to around 3 a day at present, instead of the 20 daily or so, it was before

    Hmmmm

    Yes, since "Corporate Email Services" (CES) provided SpamCop email the owner kept the web pages current.
    He since retired and Cisco allow legacy members to forward email to a working email address but the web pages are not being kept current, which was also done by volunteers, 
    Probably best to delete them, although those that are still up offer some insight.

    By reporting spam to SC, how does it 1*protect me from more spam?

    Reporting spam by any means, SC included, is sent to abuse desk which if enough reports or of illegal content will act.
    You usually end up list washed by spammer, for me that's enough.

    $15 will remove nag screen but it allocates 15MB of spam reporting, no time limit, the more you report the quicker it gets used up.
    I don't see that by reporting spam directly (forward as attachment) to abuse desk as less effective probably simpler.
    This blog is good to get advice some helpful, some not.
    Nowadays I send most abuse reports directly, only using SpamCop when I want evidence of abuse desk not doing their job.

    ! 😬 I don't know why Microsoft have made it so awkward/difficult, it never used to be like this!

    Microsoft believe this their job?
    Send a SpamCop Track 
    https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6588774779z3ab95b8cd86a700d63c9d7c13cbf84c4z
    Seems to work but just reports Microsoft as the sender
    The sender was AmazonAWS they have a security problem possibly their Alexa devices?

    Various posters have expressed their frustration at receiving seemingly endless spam from Amazon AWS servers, as I have been.  I was also fed up at SpamCop's simply "devnulling" our Amazon AWS spam.  Instead, I have reported, and gone on reporting, Amazon AWS spam to various Amazon mail addresses.  I get the automated replies from Amazon, but I could be persuaded that the volume of spam from Amazon AWS has tailed off.

    I could be wrong, but I think the way forward is to go on reporting Amazon AWS spam; "devnulling" by SpamCop is not going to do any good.

    Amazon are incompetent and won't accept SpamCop reports 
    The only way to attempt to report directly from your Gmail WEB account to abuse[AT]amazonaws.com
    And Mark it phishing (so-far I have only seen Gmail accounts attacked?)

    Amazon replied to me that I didn't do this, which I did send all headers and body in text listed the IP (3.134.0.217) it came from

    
        * Complete, accurate timestamps of the activity including: (one email per report, please)
            - Date
            - Time

        * All source IPs
        * All source port(s) & protocol(s)
        * Destination IP(s)
        * Destination port(s) and protocol(s)
        
        * Full e-mail header and HTML content of the spam message
        

    I sent/parsed it through SpamCop

     all headers, time stamps were sent
    Your IP 3.134.0.217  is listed as a Botnet
    see and have machine scanned 

    https://www.abuseat.org/lookup.cgi?ip=3.134.0.217
    This IP is infected (or NATting for a computer that is infected) with an botnet that is emitting email spam. The infection is probably auto.

    AmazonAWS spamming Gmail accounts Amazon reject abuse reports from SpamCop
    my "preamble" in every report I forward to them just started adding 2 days ago actually ceased yesterday. so it seems Amazon do know this criminal and are cooperating in the spam attack. 

    Banning all Amazon purchases because of inept AWS abuse responses to AmazonAWS DDoS multiple IP email attacks  
    Criminal phishing, bogus reply address, bogus unsubscribe(NEVER subscribed), DDoS

    I will never buy anything from amazon or it's subsidiaries EVER!

    Suggest you forward from your WebMail gmail account (mark phishing) with headers and body to

    Why do we see this:

    /dev/null'ing report for Abuse#amazonaws.com@devnull.spamcop.net
    /dev/null'ing report for ec2-abuse#amazon.com@devnull.spamcop.net

    I forward spam from my Gmail account to Amazon, none today?
    Amazon abuse have "unsubscribed" from SpamCop reports. shows how inept/uncaring they are.

    Well I just did it. Canceled Prime and Music. I’m not giving them any money any more. They surely could fix this but choose not to.

    Good and tell them why. The more that do this the more this spammer costs Amazon
    Spread the good word.
    Were a regular buyer of goods from Amazon not anymore.

    I have reported 14 abuse emails to them today since this morning alone. I’ve just about had enough and canceling prime and avoiding shopping with them at all is increasingly likely what is going to happen.

    I am coming to the same conclusion as you. Totally a waste of time. I don’t know if there is an email client for my Pixel phone and iPhone which allows blocking by IP ranges but that’s what I’d really like to get!!!

    The sleaze running their abuse desk are not good at their job. I don't now buy anything from Amazon that alone costs them more thant they get from their resident spammer. Maybe Jeff Bezos will start noticing his billions disappear?

    So my entry is just one of thousands assisting to maintain SCs database so they can sell subscriptions to mail servers who in turn will block the sender IF and only IF there are enough complaints.

    That "used to be", not anymore. Cisco mail servers are second to-none in stopping spam with zero "false positives' and you just don't see spam at all.
    SpamCop really only benefits those who attacked by spammers, I do not see any real benefit for Cisco in running SpamCop,
    I believe we are a legacy left from Ironport when Cisco bought them out. Remains as a public service

    Remember there is a cost in running SpamCop and your only defense against spammers is to report them.

    Your welcome.

    Thanks petzl for reiterating their position,

    O

    You still should report spam even if not by SpamCop, otherwise your spam will just get worse

    Why am I penalized with a 18 second (an growing) nag screen? If SC wants help, it's a odd way of treating helpers.

    O

    You WILL be assimilated!
    It's also your choice to use SpamCop not hard to "forward as attachment" to your "submit.SuperSecret@spam.spamcop.net" then report once SpamCop auto-acks report ready to submit. Not sure if there's a nag wait?
    Remember there is a cost in running SpamCop and your only defense against spammers is to report them.
    You can also forward as attachment your spam to the abuse department of the IP who sent it
    For Windows get a "Who-Is program" these are both free
