    All spams lately get "no links found"

    I just went to one I reported earlier in the week and re-parsed it. The parser, indeed, found the web links. Hooray!

    That works, even when the quotes are HTML quotes ("). That's what mine typically show. But it is "SpamCop-legit" to make this change?

    I've been away from the forums for a while. Is there no way to get a message to the SpamCop "powers that be"?

    Ahah! A good reason to reconsider paying for the service. Thanks!

    How do I add it to my report? There used to be a place for supplemental reporting addresses, but I haven't seen it for a while. Or is that available for paying users?

    All spams lately get "no links found"

    I am running into the same phenomenon. SpamCop has failed to find links in just about all the spams I have gotten in the past week. It looks like someone (or two someones) has taken two tacks: Using Base64 to hide the links in images. Old school, but can be effective. Using "Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable" which seems to hide the URLs by encoding the HTML. For those, I see no reason the parser couldn't be modified to read the obfuscated HTML the same way it reads plain HTML. Though I could be wrong. Here is a reporting URL so you can see what I'm talking about on #2.
  7. Yep, I think you're psychic. Just this morning I went to the mailhosts and found that nothing was set up. I thought I had done that, but I did it again, and now it's finding non-Microsoft sources for most of my spam emails. Thanks!
  8. I want to raise the question again, simply because it seems so unlikely to me: How is it that the SpamCop parser always says my spam came from Microsoft? Surely, some spam is coming from somewhere else. This strikes me as being a likely parser problem. ???

  11. I've noticed that all the spam I report from my Hotmail account is reported to the same place for the message source: danorm [at] microsoft.com After trying and discarding a bunch of received lines, the parser always ends up with an address that looks like "2a01:111:f400:7e4a:0:0:0:208," which is then reported to the above email address. For the past week, at least, the "2a01:111:f400" part has been constant, with some minor variations in the "7e4a" part and the "208" part. This happens even for legitimate emails that I parsed just to see where they would be reported.... Any ideas? Thanks!

    Unable to register - Invalid CAPTCHA

    Brand new reporting login procedure, I guess, but I am not able to obtain a password. Message is Don't know if it's a problem on the SpamCop side or my side. I'm using FF30.0 with NoScript, but I don't see any scripts blocked. I'm also confused because I didn't see an earlier announcement of this change, which I think should have been phased in rather than imposed all at once. On the other hand, maybe I missed something because unless it was in red, I probably didn't read it.
  13. In reference to this forum thread. I have received several spam messages that fit this description in the past week, and there are a couple of new issues: If I click on "View full message," SpamCop sends me a ".sc" file that, of course, the browser doesn't know how to open. I save it and open it with Notepad and see that it is a text file with no apparent line breaks. In Wordpad, it does show line breaks. I don't have the tools here to see what the line break character is. The SpamCop parser displays a very large portion of the message rather than just the headers, and it seems to know where the lines break, too. As before, the parser fails to detect the body AS the body, and so is unable to parse any URLs in the body. If I insert a blank line in the proper place and paste the resulting message into the parser, it parses normally, including the body URLs. Example of parsing failure and unusually long message display: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5923835285ze...ab314479fe9baaz
  14. No idea. I've never seen that page before, don't know how to navigate to it, and don't know what it does.
