    Hey db17

    All good, sorry nothing so far has helped, I think Robibue & Petzl have nailed it... That's why they're MASTERS & I'm a lowly grasshopper

    I have 2 SC accounts, 1 paid, 1 unpaid,  just parsed a spam / tested again, [User Notification] appears with the paid account, not the unpaid. 

    What's that saying? "we get what we pay for"....


    Please do keep posting Tracking URLs (when available) for us to pitch in.



    That was my thought when checking new replies to this thread.

    I, too, see the "user notification" option when I've added fuel, and it disappears when my "fuel" runs out.

  2. As I understand it, Spamcop's primary focus is to maintain a blocking/blacklist of sources of spam. Any reports that get sent out and are actually actioned by provider are a bonus. Even if the reports get dev-null'ed, Spamcop can still.  use the spam you report to help provide data for its blocking list.

    There are other ways of tracking down a suitable reporting address. I rarely bother manually sending reports to providers,  but occasionally visit sites such as multirbl.valli.org and mxtoolbox that can assist in provide information that is of some help. Other volunteers at this forum might be able to jump in and suggest approaches that more directly address what you are asking.

    and the second line is a link to http://131. 107.193.85joanny.info.boyman.space/205/3-2-2019-clickersin (space added after the first dot to  break the link)


    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. 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.

  5. When I checked just now using the multirbl.valli.org lookup tool, there were two listings highlighted, neither of which was spamcop. I've seen reports on this forum that sometimes email providers get lazy and use a generic error message that incorrectly cites Spamcop as the reason email is being blocked, but without seeing a bounce message, it's difficult to know if this is what is happening for you.

  6. With the upgrade, I've noticed that the parser is coping better for processing spam arriving at gmail. For a while, I've had to perform an edit similar to that required for Outlook/Hotmail, and this now eems to be unnecessary.

    • And, anyone who's game:P may be able to answer:

    if the answer's "yes"; why parsing the entire source data would result in different [Reports sent to] distributions?


    as opposed to parsing modified source data  [Reports sent to] distributions


    Thanks in advance!

    What I'm seeing is that the modification(s) still seem to be necessary.

    Good news today: The mail host for my "real" address lets me block entire domains. Google does not. I blocked all incoming mail with anything that includes @hetzner.co.za ... clearly an evil or compromised rogue domain. That won't completely stop the Gmail garbage, but it's a start.

    My ISP/primary email provider has a similar option available, which can be useful. One thing to watch, however, is that sometimes there are limits to how many domains that are blocked.
