Help requested - Rogers, Bellsouth, etc. webmail users

3 posts in this topic

Following the discovery of the magic key combination enabling forwarding of Yahoo mail as an attachment with full headers (Shift-Alt-F), as described:

http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...amp;#entry82630

- thereby allowing e-mail spam submissions from the new(ish) Yahoo 7 which had seemed lost with the general demise of Yahoo Classic ...

Can Rogers, Bellsouth (any other) customers where Yahoo provides the mail service hosting behind the scenes confirm the same works for them, from their Rogers/Bellsouth/whatever webmail access page? Not being a user of such services I have no idea of the interface(s).

To test, you don't have to wait for spam, any current e-mail message will do - just remember to CANCEL the submission after you review the submission, DON'T send the report (unless it is spam of course).

With the Shift-Alt-F method a sending screen is presented and it can be seen that the e-mail to be forwarded (only one at a time, unfortunately) is ATTACHED - as an eml file. It is simply a matter of pasting in your SC submission address and sending from that point.

A SC confirmation should then be received ("[spamCop] has accepted 1 email for processing") and/or on subsequently going to the SC member reporting page there should be an "Unreported spam" link. After viewing and cancelling the submission, please obtain the report ID ("Past reports" tab) and post it here just in case the deputies need to have a look at the submission (only SC staff - Deputies such as Richard W or SC Admin Don - and yourself can view the submission from the ID number).

Thanks in advance to any who can assist.

The key combination seems to work with Telecom NZ (Xtra), who also use Yahoo for their email services.
