  1. I use the extra reporting field in spamcop to send my spam to Knujon. This works for most of the coldrain.net addresses listed at http://www.knujon.com/ but it seems that spamcop is refusing to forward the spam if I use the one for depositscams:

    Withdrawing a report sent in error

    Thanks, Steve. I searched the FAQ for recall, error and mistake, but didn't think of "unsend", which would have worked! With any luck this thread may help someone else to find the answer in future. - Neville
  3. Very rarely, I report a batch of spam without noticing until afterwards that there was one good message in the middle of it. I don't want to damage the reputation of the sender or cause unnecessary work for their ISP. How can I withdraw a mistaken spam report?
  4. Sorry, here's a tracking URL: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z3809959229zb...1a105b741e5ae2z I have now read the advice about KnujOn and added a KnujOn reporting address into my SpamCop prefs, so I can now send my spam to them as well, with just one extra click each time. It was worth starting this thread just to pick up on that advice. It would be nice if that extra reporting address could be ticked by default on the SpamCop "Send reports" page.
  5. Here they are: http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrac...rtid=4841785349 http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrac...rtid=4840554718 Yes, I confirm that I tested and found that the link would generate a report if a space was inserted between the end of the URL and the <p>.
  6. For the last couple of days I've been receiving quite a few spams with <p> tags added immediately after the advertised URL, and this seems to prevent SpamCop making a report. Examples are: http://yexokoheh.cn<p><p> http://coredetionses.ru<p> Can the parser be changed so that it's not fooled by these?

    How do you report scams from @live.com ??

    For months, I have been reporting spams with live.com (etc) reply-to addresses to report_spam[at]live.com or, as appropriate, Report_spam[at]hotmail.com or report_spam[at]msn.com. I just used to get an auto-acknowledgement. However, since 29 October I receive 2 emails each time: one acknowledgment and one rejection. I don't know which to believe. The acknowledgement says: Then the rejection notice say: I tried re-submitting and deleting the spam indicators set by my ISP in the headers, and even "Dear Sir/Madam" from the text of the spam, but I still get a rejection notice as well as an acknowledgement.

    Spamvertised websites ending .eu

    Thanks, I'm learning new stuff today. I tried typing nslookup in the Terminal program on my Mac (hardly ever used it before) and found the same address for my three spam URLs (probably all selling viagra, judging by the spam subject lines): Non-authoritative answer: Name: hiphopcult.eu Address: Non-authoritative answer: Name: yourslick.eu Address: Non-authoritative answer: Name: greathealthexchange.eu Address: So, judging by the above comments, there's not much hope of getting them shut down. OK, thanks to all for your help.
  9. Three days running, I've noticed that SpamCop does not identity the administrators for various URLs of the form http://something.eu I've checked the links and in all three cases they are live websites. Is this something that needs setting up on SpamCop? Note that these URLs do not have a .com (etc) before the .eu.

    URL not parsing

    I've noticed that SpamCop also parses URL in plain text emails, or the plain text part of a multi-part (plain text and HTML) email. One useful trick is that if SpamCop shows no report for the spamvertised website, press the button to Preview Report, then the back button. Sometimes SpamCop adds to the report at that point. I guess that is to do with a slow response from tracing the URL.
