    [Resolved] Something I can't explain

    That's all Greek to me but thanks guys for confirming my suspicions. At least I know my eyesight isn't failing me.

    [Resolved] Something I can't explain

    Just got one. I search through this email and I cannot find any reference URL or address refering to AVG, but SpamCop finds it in there somewhere. http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5922358693z8...003a64a7a49d13z

    [Resolved] Something I can't explain

    Even though AVG does not get reported it makes me wonder what else might be being hidden. I'm curious about the "how" as well. I'll post the Tracking URL next time I get one of those, which is not often. Thanks
  4. While trying to post a spam email to Spamcop I will go through the pasted email line by line and edit out the "ad" that my AVG Antivirus tags onto every email I send or receive (www.avg.com). Once in a while, after going through an email I'll discover I can't find any link to AVG, but when I process the email I see the AVG URL has been found in the email with the usual "ISP does not wish to receive...blag, blah, blah." So the question is, how is it the AVG URL is being found by SPAMCOP when I can't find the AVG URL in the email? Is it possible it's somehow hidden from view? I can't explain it. Thanks
  5. Quick question about certain spam email I try to Report. I copy the entire headers from Outlook Express to the clip board. When I paste the contents to the Reporting window at spamcop all the text that was in the body of the email comes out as blocks of seemingly random letters. Normally I delete any text added by my antivirus software so that they don't get reported as part of the spam, but after Pasting, the added text become a part of the jumbled letters that the spamcop system properly un-translates from this jumbled code once it is reported. Is there a way to Paste the reported email in a way that I can edit out the unwanted antivirus text in the Reporting window? Thanks
  6. I went to report a spam email like I normally do and for some reason I had to log-in. When I did I was asked to provide an additional name and email. I found that suspicious since you already have my name and email address, and that you go to great pains to keep that information private, so I just canceled out of that. I never received any notification of any changes. Is this some new policy? Thanks

    New breed of spam??

    BINGO! These are exactly the one's that triggered my original inquiry. 99% percent of them point to Canadian Pharmacy. I can't seem to stop them either no matter what I do. I keep reporting them and they keep coming. Seems like there should be some way to file a complaint against the Canadian Pharmacy or their ISP but I have not learned how to go about that. Also, If you go to the Canadian Pharmacy web site Contact Page there is a "Report spam" check box. I don't know if it's legit or not. Some of those just use it as a way to verify your address and I don't want to take a chance on increasing the frequency of these things. Another thing I noticed is that Spamcop does not identify the link the email points to (Canadia Pharmacies ISP). It says the link is obfuscated, but if you click on the link in the email you end up at the Canadian Pharmacy. With other spam I have received Spamcop identifies the link referenced in the spam and sends a report to it's host as well a the sender. I don't know why that fails with these and that is why I call it a new breed of spam because they seem to be able to hide this stuff from spam detection systems. Let me know if you figure it out. Thanks

    Thanks very much for the information and the tip. Since I started visiting this forum it's nice to finally get an answer without being humiliated and treated like an idiot.

    Outlook received header problem

    The notice says "all versions of Outlook". Would Outlook Express be considered an included version of Outlook?

    I can't understand how that's possible. This has been going on for over a month and you would think MSN could get a handle on that and block whomever it is that keeps repeatedly abusing their system. I've sent so many of those reports that I got to thinking it was not doing any good. Other reports have resulted in the spam stopping almost immediately. I'll continue to report those if you think it does any good. Thanks I really appreciate that. I

    Oh crap, I didn't even consider that. By all means get rid of my email address from the thread. Thanks for the information.

    Wow, that's way over my head, I'm not sure what you are asking for. Maybe if I explained a bit more? Lately I get these little adds for Viagra or whatever. I go into my message source and copy the entire email with all the headers. Then I go to the Spamcop site and paste the information into the box and hit Process spam. The only thing that comes back is a report to MSN.com Now I'm fairly certain these spam emails are not coming from MSN because they have a tight spam policy and would have stopped them very quickly.

    I noticed lately I've been getting lots of spam for pharmaceuticals and when I submit them to SPAMCOP the report doesn't really seem to be able to discover where it really came from. Is this some new form of spammer that can actually totally hide their identity?
