SpamCopy creating duplicate reports?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

This is very confusing, and I hope it's my error.

I was using the SpamCop webmail service. I forwarded one spam message to my SpamCop

reporting address. I'm pretty sure I sent the email once, but SpamCop sent me two

responses accepting 1 email for processing. The timestamps were within a second of each

other.

The two reporting links, as far as I can tell, point to the same spam message. You can

check them out:

I reported one and canceled the other.

Is there some way I managed to fumble-finger and forward twice? I don't know how I could

do that. I would have expected SpamCop to have recognized the duplicate, but it offered me the opportunity to report both.

???

About the thread subject: Was that Freudian, or what?

SpamCop support said their engineers were working on a parallel system.

Maybe my submission was processed twice for that reason.

Hi, MyNameHere,

...Might this also be the explanation for the problem you reported at SpamCop Forum Topic "spam too old?"

It could be, but I'll just wait and see what happens. I'm keeping meticulous records in case I can provide useful feedback, but now I'm sure it'll stop happening.

:D

That makes sense to me, it could be a glitch related to the update. The other day, about the time the tech team were working on the update, I flicked through a couple of dollars to support Spamcop which was quickly eaten up by over 1000 emails which "magically" appeared in my queue of ureported email.
