  1. The system used by spamcop works best if the original recipient of the unwanted mail submits the spam. An email from a colleague wouldn't normally be classed as spam, even if it's a copy of an unwanted email they've received.
  2. I normally read my gmail account using Thunderbird, and find the Habul plugin helpful. Habul has options for sending to several spam reporting agencies, including Spamcop, in the "correct" format.
  3. I read the answers from Gmail, and felt your pain. I had a very similar discussion, about 6 years ago, with my email provider, and with similar results.
  4. Having successfully used Spamcop to report unwanted emails for several years, and having tried the Copy/Paste method of reporting spam from Gmail, I don't think there's anything wrong with Spamcop. The problem has already been identified as Spamcop not seeing everything it needs to properly analyze the email, namely that the body of the email is missing. When you are viewing the email via webmail, do the emails you are reporting actually have any content?
  5. Odd....... I just did some tests from one of my gmail accounts, both "Copy to clipboard" and "Download original message" seem to be including everything needed by the parser. Having said that, I have occasionally seen emails come in which trip up the parser due to seemingly missing a useful body. If you're reporting such an email, A somewhat less than ideal workaround is to paste the message into the form, add a blank line at the bottom, and add on another line saying something like "[body missing from source]". I don't recommend doing this for ALL emails being reported, but only those where the body seems to be missing from the message source.
  6. Haven't had an issue here for a while.
  7. You need to copy the COMPLETE email, body and all, into the submission form, otherwise the SpamCop parser is likely to complain. By the way, what's with the blank quotes that cluttering up your post? It makes me wonder if you're yanking our chains.
  8. Do you use the "forward as attachment" (or equivalent) option of your email software/webmail?
  9. The point of registering "mailhosts" on your spamcop reporting account is to help Spamcop distinguish between your email provider and the other providers which may (or may not) be the true source of unwanted email. There's very little point in reports being sent your provider, or adding their details to the "spam source database" when their only role was to deliver it to your inbox or junk folder. As I understand it, the role Spamcop plays in the mix is to try to identify the true source of unwanted email, and build a database of known spam sources. They make this available via the Spamcop Blocing list. Any reports it sends to providers is a bonus, and any problems that fixed as a result is a double bonus. It is freely available for email providers to use as part of their spam filtering processes. The "report spam" button that some providers have as part of their webmail service is usually more limited in its scope, and usually only helps that particular provider tune its spam filters.
  10. I refer to this image, copied from the first post in this thread:
  11. The reason I said you need to log in is that your initial screen shot appeared to be showing that you weren't logged in. Having noted that, I see there has been some discussion since then.
  12. #1 With Lking, I strongly recommend using your "submit" address instead of quick reporting while you are figuring this out. #2 Hint: Spamcop pays attention to the IP addresses found in the received headers the reported emails, and normally ignores the information in the other email headers that identify the alleged sender by email address.
  13. You need to log in to your spamcop reporting account, if you have one. You will only be able to review spam reports you have made yourself through the reporting service.
  14. With the webmail for the providers I've used (Yahoo and gmail) the "Report spam" button usually goes through the provider's spam handling procedures, which usually have little or nothing to do with any SpamCop reporting account I have. I normally have to forward the spam to SpamCop myself. You can either submit the spam manually using the form when you've logged into SpamCop, or forward the spam as an attachment to the email address that should be shown on the page you see when you first log in to SpamCop (the reporting site, not the forum).
  15. No sign of the acknowledgement in your spam folder? No sign of a "Report now" link on the page where you would report manually? I sometimes notice delays when forwarding from Yahoo, but the notification usually turns up (eventually) to a gmail account.
