Quick way reporting spam having Gmail webmail?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

just want to get rid of spam (in my case casino, trading, and similar sh**s)

i found spamcop to be good in reporting spam to ISPs and also found Knujon which im doubt it have any effect.

What are next options to shut deown spammers servers? Adding spammers IPs to spamhaus blocklist dont help much. their emails still comming to spam box wasting my time finding valid emails amongst them.

so any other services that can help suspend spamming IPs except directly contacting IP provider (taking like 10 minutes of time to me and is terribly anoying?

Hi, postcd,

...Welcome to the group of those of us who post to the Forum!

...Unfortunately, none of us here has the power to shut down the spammers. The only ones who can do that are the admins who own/ are responsible for security of the machines that are the source of the spam. If you are using the SpamCop parsing/ reporting mechanism, SpamCop usually offers you the opportunity to send complaints to those admins but there is nothing that SpamCop or you can do to make them take action. The same is true of Knujon and, probably, of SpamHaus.

...The best we victims can do is to encourage our e-mail providers to reject or, better, filter and redirect suspected spam away from our Inboxes, based on a set of blacklists. I gather that is what is happening in your case, based on your comment "Adding spammers IPs to spamhaus blocklist dont help much. their emails still comming to spam box wasting my time finding valid emails amongst them." Yes, unfortunately "false positives" are a way of life, as there is no 100% foolproof method of programmatically distinguishing spam vs mail that you actually do want.
