    SpamCop Access and Performance Issues

    Here's my email, received just over two years ago
  2. I've definitely noticed a difference here. Some of the addresses to which spam gets sent are receiving nothing what-so-ever and it's been that way since the Christmas break. The main address that attracts spam is still getting 250+ per day though. Overall I would say my spam levels have decreased but I think it would be wiser to say that there are changes in the way spam is currently being distributed.

    New Spamcop Phishing

    These are not new, I've received several over the years. Report it as spam just as you would any other phishing attempt.

    Seems fixed to me. Anyone else seeing this?
  5. mckemie, remove the '*' from your blacklist and whitelist entries, they are not needed. SpamCop is probably treating them literally and not as wildcards. As Telarin has said filters only work when logged into webmail but the blacklist and whitelist always have an affect on incoming mail. I have various Hotmail and Yahoo domains in my blacklist and they are always sent to the held mail folder. The "X-SpamCop-Disposition:" line(s) will tell you why SpamCop has blocked an item of mail. An example recently received: X-SpamCop-Disposition: Blocked SpamAssassin=11 Blacklist yahoo.com.hk Hope that helps.

    I think this problem is getting worse as it's taken me over half an hour to send about six reports. That 'visited' link just won't go away, often taking six or seven tries to clear it and present a new link ready for reporting. It's a good job that most of my spam gets quick reported directly from my mail account otherwise I would have given up sending any reports at all.
  7. No problems here, logged in on two browsers as I have two email accounts. Both working fine.

    Is it really doing any good?

    I have quite a few email addresses and a few personal domains that receive varying amounts of spam. My ISP email addresses have almost become spam-free but whether that is due to reporting everything through SpamCop for several years it's impossible to say as reports have also been sent elsewhere. One of my domains used to receive 300+ spams each day. Persistent reporting has reduced that to around 20 each day but I see no sign of it reducing any further. Another domain used to receive about 100 spams each day but that has now increased to about 220 with slightly less at the weekends but the same level of reporting. If you look at what you are reporting you might see some results. Occasionally I get spam that is sent to a an email address that is seldom used anywhere, the advertised web-site looks genuine and the web host is well known. After a few SpamCop reports the spam stops. But the bulk of my spam, especially that which has any association with China or anything that doesn't make reference to a specific website, will continue to be received for a very very long time. Unlike most people here I have seen a reduction in spam over the last year but I have been fighting spam long enough to know that I might see an increase very soon but I don't expect it to ever stop.

    If dra007 isn't saying the same thing then I certainly am. I saw this twice when sending about ten reports. Didn't this happen last time SpamCop was upgraded?
  10. It seems that Hormel have completely redesigned their website. The page you refer to is now at http://www.spam.com/about/internet.aspx.

    incorrect url parsing for report

    Rik, the board doesn't seem to want to allow me to quote any of your last post but I am too finding that KnujOn is unresponsive to user feedback. For several months they have been quoting the domains of a number of UK banks who are clearly not spamming but are victims of phish attacks and the subsequent reportsthat have been submitted. Not only are KnujOn unwilling to remove these domains from their lists they are also unwilling to answer any queries regarding the non-appearance of submissions on user reports. I sent several hundred spams to them one weekend and not one of them appeared in my reports. :angry:

    But an abuse report is still sent by SpamCop whether an IP is added to the SCBL or not. KnujOn's "No action" means exactly that.

    spam, SpamCop, KnujOn and philosophy

    KnujOn doesn't take action on every spam report though. In my case over 67% of the sites that I have reported are shown in my reports as "No action" status. This is disappointing. They also include the domains of several of the UK's major banks in their lists. Despite repeated attempts to get them to remove these domains they continue to feature.

    Just be aware that KnujOn may not take action against all the spam that you submit. My latest KnujOn report says that over 67% of all the domains that I have submitted are classified as "No action" taken.
