Submitting spam

5 posts in this topic

When I get a spam email from Yahoo, I dont want to open it for fear of infection. What i do is right click on the email in the spam folder and select VIEW FULL HEADER, then I copy and paste it into SpamCop for submission.

But I get this error and dont know quite how to fix it

No body text provided, check format of submission. spam must have body text

Thanks

The submission form requires the complete email source, not just the header.

I rarely use webmail with Yahoo these days, so I'm a bit out of touch with safe ways of viewing the complete email source using their webmail. I don't blame you for being cautious about opening emails.

Chaboo,

Just to be clear are you looking at the spam "in" a Yahoo web mail page OR are you talking about a spam FROM: a yahoo source that you are receiving in some other email app like Outlook, Firebird, etc.?

Thanks for the replies. The spam I am looking at is coming into my Yahoo mail, not Outlook or Firebird

I prefer to use Thunderbird which allows me to access the full source of a message without viewing images and other potentially nasty stuff.

I've heard that in the past some Yahoo users have had to fork out $$$$ to use POP3/IMAP with Yahoo, and suspect that I've had "free" access because my ISP uses Yahoo to host its email.
