    Success ... I think.
    Just found that on webmail for Virgin, I can save email as a file (.eml). Send as attachment, and it appears to get processed successfully. At last. So, no copying & pasting (which appears to get lengthy headers scrambled using my email app) for at least these & probably any other styles of crud-mail.

    That's the easiest,
    You should be able to open a *.eml file with "Notepad" or text viewer

    Nope ...got this after copy/paste complete header / leaving a blank line / then pasting the complete contents of the email, as-is.

    For Tracking URL https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6595219959z800489aae9b3c8255211f4e5ac6b6d55z

    That is working but you haven't submitted it
    Check with you provider that they are giving you proper headers?
    It may be your email APP doing this

    If it helps ... I'll post a couple more that were labeled "Nothing to do" by SpamCop. They're all definitely spam. 
    https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6594999144z96d48fb5c7537a72d947f5564d0a5801z is spamsource abuse[AT]as9143.net
    the abuse desk is asleep at wheel seems it's continually reported
    Don't know why SpamCop is not picking it up?

    A lot of the spams that I reported that were originating from the AmazonAWS servers were never sent to any address at Amazon but instead used addresses like  abuse#amazonaws.com@devnull.spamcop.net 

    I also filed every spam complaint directly on the AmazonAWS reporting page, even when I was getting 50+ a day from this spammer.  Amazon took it a little more serious when the spammer started forging their name and logos in the fake Amazon Gift Card spam attack.  I got some virus spams from the spammer after getting that one shut down.  They always seem to point back to a common registrar.


    Always helps with a SpamCop Track
    always put in abuse report been going on for many many months.
    Banned all Amazon and subsidiaries purchases because of inept AWS abuse responses to AmazonAWS DDoS multiple IP email attacks 
    Criminal phishing, bogus reply address, bogus unsubscribe (NEVER subscribed), DDoS   abuse[AT]amazonaws.com

    spam text headers and body

    Thank you again for reaching out and please let us know if there is anything else we can help with.

    Try to send a SpaCop Track to see these headers?
    would help if Sendgrid shut down they are a spammers paradise!
    Their advice is lousy like their allowing DDoS attacks on email accounts
    Gmail have a email spam cut off point where, with a overdose, they disable your account no warning
    from their website

    Seems that there is a connection to amazonaws as their IP is always stamped as the injection point?
    email server (look for yelp in headers name of server) abuse[]sendgrid.com
    injection (look for AWS in headers) abuse[]amazonaws.com

    Of COURSE I want to truncate! (I'm not smart enough to have a better idea.)

    So why do I have to answer this question every time?

    Can I just set a preference somewhere to automatically answer this question by "Yes" and proceed? How would I do that?

    Just trim of the body, hit enter twice, then you submit.
    Long spam submissions slow down the parser sometimes cause SpamCop to hang.
    Sometimes you can set your mouse to "Auto-find"
    my computers a touch screen so not a big deal for me.

    I collected over 500 emails, message headers and nonsense responses from ec2-abuse{}amazon.com

    The last spam I received today
    email server abuse[]sendgrid.com
    injection abuse[]amazonaws.com

    I just forward spam to the abuse addresses from my Gmail WebMail.
    Seems to have a effect in reducing the attack. SpamCop won't send reports. so I forward them directly

    old track
    email server (look for yelp in headers name of server) abuse[]sendgrid.com

    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

    All links results in...


    The page you requested does not exist Error code: 1S160/2



    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 
    Seems to work but just reports Microsoft as the sender
    The sender was AmazonAWS they have a security problem possibly their Alexa devices? abuseXamazonaws.com

    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 ( it came from

        * Complete, accurate timestamps of the activity including: (one email per report, please)
            - Date
            - Time
            - Time Zone
        * 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 
    Seems you don't know your job very well?
     all headers, time stamps were sent
    Your IP  is listed as a Botnet
    see and have machine scanned 

    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.
