    So what's up with this forum spammer?

    Well it seems the amount of spam is easily a 10 : 1 ratio compared with legitimate posts, so maybe you may want to consider tightening things up a bit? The recent activity feed is useless due to the amount of spam.
  2. Isn't there any protection in place to prevent mass-creation of new accounts?

    gmail how to

    While this does indeed work, this pretty much renders Quick Reporting useless since most of my spam comes through my Gmail account. Isn't this something that setting up mailhosts should catch anyways?
  4. Been using Spamcop for mail reporting for many years now, but I'd like to see if I can somehow use the blocklist to help filter spam as it comes in. I know the BL is intended to be used server-side, but is there any way at all I can use it with my email client (Thunderbird)? Or is it only able to be used with a mailserver?
  5. Same here. Unable to access Webmail, IMAP, or POP3.
  6. Not sure what my ISP would have to do with it...I can POP directly into all my accounts just fine with Thunderbird, it's just Spamcop that can't POP in. My external POP accounts are a mix of Godaddy, Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, and SBC Global addresses, so I can't imagine all of them have the exact same problem at the exact same time.
  7. Well, what would I be able to try? I've tried deleting all of my external POP servers and added them one at a time...still getting unknown error 8 on whichever one I try to add. It's as if all of a sudden Spamcop went dead. I can access my other POP accounts fine normally, and Spamcop mail is working fine on it's own, but Spamcop simply won't POP anything else.
  8. It seems for the last couple days Spamcop has not POPed any of my external email accounts. Each and every single one of them comes back with "Unknown Error: 8". Help?
  9. I am trying to add spam[at]uce.gov to my Public standard report recipients so that all spam reports I send get sent to the feds as well. Whenever I do so, however, I get the following error message: Can't save "Public standard report recipients". Invalid email format: spam[at]uce.gov Preferences not saved! Please go back and try again. I have tried several different email address (including my own, just to see what happens) and I get the same error message every time.
  10. That seems to have done the trick, just got a deluge of spam from my AOL account. Thanks!
  11. For the last few days, Spamcop was not fetching mail from my Hotmail and AOL accounts. Both of them were receiving "Invalid Password" errors, and both were using popgate.cesmail.net as the POP server. I fixed the Hotmail account by switching to popgate2.cesmail.net, but AOL is still having problems. Does cesmail no longer support AOL?
  12. What details would you need? I wasn't aware that "Release and Whitelist" had any specific settings that could be altered. I've already dropped a note via the Problem button.
