  1. Occasionally I get spam in double-byte character sets. Outlook Express lets me choose two options when I forward as attachments to SpamCop: "Send as Unicode", with all character set information retained, or "Send As Is", using only the default character set. Does SpamCop have a preference? --Cy--

    random text spam with small gifs?

    I see -- so the spam content is supposed to be in the GIF attachment, and just doesn't show up for some reason? That makes sense -- thanks. I wondered if the GIF was actually some active content, like a worm or trojan. --Cy--

    random text spam with small gifs?

    [edit] Sorry to have violated a rule. I didn't want to disclose my email address. Here's the URL: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1097575756zb...d5280d9ec7131cz --Cy-- ---------------------------------------------------------------- Here's one, with my email address asterisked. Is there a better way to decode the gif? --Cy-- Moderator edit: Tracking URL was not provided. The entire spam was posted here, to include an embedded graphic. My lack of humor shows up again. Posted spam deleted. Please see http://forum.spamcop.net/scwik/TrackingURL if you actually need a definition of Tracking URL, noting that entries in the Dictionary and Glossary provided here pre-date the Wiki page ......
  5. Today I started receiving unintelligible spams, with small gif attachments that don't display, and don't cause an error, either. What's going on? Here's sample text. Another one looked like it was ROT13. "NOT to use them). and experience of others, you want to learn the better at solving software You'll easily counter with your You're not Head First book, you know the latest research in of the best practices Something more fun. at speaking the language up a creek without design problems Java's built-in pattern when to use them, how "secret language" Facade, Proxy, and Factory Head First Design Patterns Java's built-in pattern who've faced the texts.

  6. Thanks -- you were right on. The "Mail Delivery System" that sent me the bounce was, in fact, my very own outgoing SMTP server. "Never mind..." --Cy--
  7. I follow the instructions for reporting via email for Outlook Express 6, i.e. forwarding as an attachment to my assigned email address. All such emails are returned to me with this error (submission address masked): -------------------------------------------------- This message was created automatically by mail delivery software. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: submit.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx[at]spam.spamcop.net This message has been rejected because it has a potentially executable attachment "{Spam_} spit.eml" This form of attachment has been used by recent viruses or other malware. If you meant to send this file then please package it up as a zip file and resend it. -------------------------------------------------- If I have to go to properties, details, message source, select all, copy, paste into Notepad, compress as zip, and then attach to a new email, that's more work than using the web report form. Is there an easier way to report by email? --Cy--
