Response to Spamcop Report not whitelisted

Recommended Posts

I received a clueless response to a spamcop report. However, the response should have been whitelisted, not placed in my held mail folder (as per Don). I rely on the proper filtering of email i.e. if something is in my held mail folder, and it is from India, and the return address is "anujvaijapurkar[at]yahoo.com" then it is spam.

The exception to this is when someone uses a free email account to respond to Spamcop report, telling me the spam in my inbox is not spam. This needs to be filed in my trashbin. I accidently reported the response as spam.

We are moving into a new era post-CanSpam Act and they lines are getting a bit grey. I expect to be receiving more protests like this one.

Can we adjust the whitelist filters to make sure that responses to spam complaints are not put in the held mail folder? Thanks,

Henry

I'm not sure why you drug Don into this .... and I'm also not sure why you want to make a community effort out of setting up "your" whitelist. Maybe you can point out exactly what you currently have in "your" whitelist that would have "approved" this incoming e-mail, vice moving it to held as an unknown, especially when that "unknown" is qualified in the line;

X-SpamCop-Disposition: Blocked list.dsbl.org

I am assuming Don wrote him a warning that he should not be reporting spamcop report replies.

I have a personal filter setup that moves all To: reports.spamcop.net into a separate folder.

This just points to the importance of check the mail before submitting a report.

The subject line clearly indicates that it is not spam but is a reply to a report.

Subject: [spamCop id:1170938226 (http://www.indiaeye.com/resto.htm)]

To: 1170938226[at]reports.spamcop.net

and the to line is another clear indication.

But I think he does have a valid point, that even though the IP is on a block list the format of the subject and to makes it apparent that this should be a reply to a report and not spam (of course, it could be faked but the id number could be crossed checked.)

Also, since the mail is orignally sent to reports.spamcop.net and then forwarded to the spamcop client, is there anyway of SpamCop automaticly whitelisting all forwarded mail?

Possibly a better option would be for SpamCop to forward replies to reports as attachments which would then get around the possible blocking issues
