  1. On a side note, I've never had a spamcop.net email account, but have seen examples of "your account has been hacked" messages arriving at a small number of my email addresses. Don't shy away from reporting them - the ones I've seen have always been traced back to somewhere other than the server hosting the supposedly hacked account.
  2. My bad. I was possibly suffering from a coffee deficiency or some such problem.
  3. It might not mean much but even if there wasn't the added space, my minimal parsing skills want to add a forward slash after what looks like an IPv4 address. Time for me to wander off and enjoy my freshly made coffee.
  4. You need to forward the email as an attachment, and not as "inline" - the Spamcop parser needs access to the full text of the email to do its stuff.
  5. I use Thunderbird to check my email. Most of the time, using its "Forward as attachment" for selected emails works well for me when reporting. Occasionally there's a glitch somewhere along the line, usually NOT with gmail, which gets me using the "View source" to provide data for the online submission form.
  6. D'oh! Reminds me of a couple of occasions in recent months where I've sent a suspect email to my ISP for their review, and after an exchange where my patience has been severely tested, I'm asked to forward the suspicious email to them.
  7. Agreed, a tracking URL will be helpful. One of the advantages of continuing to submit spam to Spamcop is that even if a provider claims that spam will stop, information from the spam we report will help Spamcop maintain its blacklist.

    Mail Rejected/Blacklisted

    I see no current listing on the spamcop list. I think it's odd that the lookup link in the bounce messages is for spamcop, when the messages refer to rbl.websitewelcome.com, a blocklist that I know nothing about.
  9. We copped a bit of the heat across the ditch for a few days, but the weather here seems to have cooled down a bit.
  10. I'd noticed that too, saving a bit of time when reporting.........

    OVH.Net spam ?

    Spammers are not only annoying, they tend to be stupid. I've even had one (can't remember which provider the original email was traced back to) where the sender claimed to be Donald Duck. I couldn't resist having a little bit of fun with them....... There's a humorous post on how stupid they are in the Lounge section of the forum.
  12. Agreed, keep on reporting. I'm not clued up on the behind the scenes processing Gmail does when you mark an email as spam, beyond training their filter, but have had one or two reports come my way from Yahoo users have done the equivalent on their webmail.

    OVH.Net spam ?

    I get the occasional email from ovh.net and generally report it. Even if they don't respond to our satisfaction to reports, the data provided will still help Spamcop maintain its blacklist.
