Spamcop problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We use Declude Junkmail to help filter spam from our mail server. The single best test is Spamcop. Unfortuantely, sincely 2/6/04 [at] 4pm eastern time, not a single email has failed the spamcop test and we're now being inundated with spam email. We were filtering around 40% of all incoming mail, now we're lucky if we filter out 5%.

Were there any changes at Spamcop? is there something I need to do change my Declude test?

Please help.

Thanks,

Roland

No, no changes here. It sounds like Declude isn't checking the blacklist or isn't able to reach the nameservers.

I don't suppose you use AT&T or know if you have AT&T nameservers, do you? At some point last week, it seems that they started blocking SpamCop Blacklist lookups.

Hi JT,

That was it. It's the AT&T dns servers.

I changed some settings and we appear to be filtering again.

Thanks for your help.

Roland

Do we know why AT&T appears to have done this?

Very odd. Sounds like someone internal doesn't like spamcop ... since an ISP is paid to carry traffic, not paid to dump it...
