  1. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ They're trying, here's their response to all of this: We are continuing to make modifications to our mail configuration to provide an eventual permanent solution to this problem. This is not an easy process, because we are not being blocked in Spamcop due to original spam -- we are being intermittently blocked due to bounced mail (when someone e-mails you, and an over-quota bounce is sent, Spamcop considers this spam) forwards (when DreamHost customers forward mail to an external account and then submit a spam complaint for spam that may have been forwarded through our servers, this counts against us), and autoresponders, which they also consider spam. We're trying to find a balance between still offering extra email services (such as forwards and autoresponders, and even standard things like over-quota bounces) while fine-tuning things so that Spamcop doesn't trigger on our IPs so often. In the meantime we do not recommend that you forward mail to Spamcop-protected addresses, and download it directly from our servers. Also, when a Spamcop block does crop up, you can still mail to Spamcop-protected addresses by sending via webmail, which sends on a separate set of IPs. Finally, if your recipient has control over the blacklists they use, you may wish to suggest that they utilize other blacklists that do not block quite so liberally for non-original spam. While backscatter certainly is a problem and we're working to minimize it as much as possible, we don't believe throwing out buckets of legitimate email in the process is the answer. Thank you for your patience while we continue to address this problem.
  2. I have done some searching. I have found my way here. No small feat, since on spam cop's web site there is absolutely no links to ANY of these forums or anything else, for that matter. I have to think that's purposeful, too many people might lodge complaints. I am also clueless, get over it. Deal with it instead of being pompous (I did read lots of the forums before this post). Here's MY story. I own six or so domains, all hosted though dreamhost.com [my lever of cluelessness? I haven't progressed past programming in simple html] E-mail from my latest site (headers below), set up to promote my musical group, is being blocked... by spam cop. This is hard to understand, because in the two months the site has been up, I've sent a grand total 34 (count them, THIRTY FOUR TOTAL) e-mails, mostly to my band mates, and spam COP BLOCKS THEM. None of my other site's mail get blocked! How the hell does this happen? I read that if you just wait 24 hours, the block comes off. Big freaking deal, how the hell does it go on in the first place?? 34 freaking e-mails!! Dreamhost tells me that it isn't just my latest site, but that spamcop blocks mail from ALL of dreamhost's sites. As I said before, none of my mail from my other sites is being blocked, so I'd like to know how and what is going on? Here are the headers from one of the blocked e-mails: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Return-Path: <> X-Original-To: frazier[at]memoryleakmusic.com Delivered-To: m8428014[at]postalmail-a1.dreamhost.com Received: by postalmail-a1.dreamhost.com (Postfix) id 4C11D8B4F; Fri, 22 Sep 2006 20:35:14 -0700 (PDT) Date: Fri, 22 Sep 2006 20:35:14 -0700 (PDT) From: MAILER-DAEMON[at]postalmail-a1.dreamhost.com (Mail Delivery System) Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender To: frazier[at]memoryleakmusic.com MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/report; report-type=delivery-status; boundary="2045985B3.1158982514/postalmail-a1.dreamhost.com" Message-Id: <20060923033514.4C11D8B4F[at]postalmail-a1.dreamhost.com> Content-Description: Notification Content-Type: text/plain This is the Postfix program at host postalmail-a1.dreamhost.com.
