I had about 60-70% timeouts with reports not being generated, unusually high.

*EDIT*

I cleared out my email that was cued for reporting, then resubmitted it all and it's working fine now. Looks like there was a rogue message that the system got hung up on.

Yeah, I think it's only certain messages that are problematic. I get different times for quick reportin vs. web advertised sites also. The letter is much slower. I also noticed a lot of fake IP identified in the latest spams. So I wonder if this a trend that other people see. Seems the spammers are experimenting with ways to clutter the reporting system.

I don't know if this is coincidental with the above but the serious slow downs have appeared after an increase in porn spams (from the same sources that send jackrabbit vibrator, cilias, etc: cnc-noc, hanaro and such imbecils)!

agreed, though I've noticed a rash of mortgage and insurance spam. Anyone know a good reporting address for agencies of either banking or insurance regulation?

No rashes, per se. But the reporting side just got slammed from my perspective. Worked fine throughout the day and then.....

Gateway timeout....

Site not responding from other parts of the net. Something choking the system?

The graphics of todays volumes shows a hole for a brief period.

Oh, one more thing I wasn't expecting. I've had to re'log in to submit a report on several occasions. That is unusual.

just a bit of a heads-up .... with no one posting in the mean time, there's not a lot of reason to generate a series of new posts ..... Trying to increase posting count by generaiting many snall posts isn't really looked upon kindly here. As such, two of your posts were combined in this Topic, your third post was split and moved into an existing Topic dealing with "that" actual issue.

IMO, the reporting system is incredibly slow. I am a single user who happens to own my own domain. I get spams to every combination of usernames[at]mydomain.com. Sometimes I get a single spam with multiple users Carbon Copied or Blind Copied. I'm now up to over 2,000 spams per day!! My main reason for choosing SpamCop over some of the competing services is that SpamCop allows me to report spammers. I hate the f****ers with a passion. Hate 'em bad enough to spend $30/yr on top of the money I pay my ISP and web hosting provider. But, bad as I hate 'em, I don't have the time it takes to wait for SpamCop to crawl through 2,000 emails, 100 at a time. For a while, I thought about writing a scri_pt to act as an agent, just sit in the background and wait on SpamCop, then whenever SpamCop returned a new screenfull of held email, check my address book and submit any unrecognized emails for reporting. Even though that would be a cool thing to take on as a project, I really don't have the time for that either. I guess I'll hang on for a little while longer, but I've already started looking for alternative solutions.

you think you got it bad, try sending them one at a time thru by email or the web site. that's what I have been doing for the last four years, which is why I question the whole process being effective at all.

see the thread "Is it really doing any good?, We keep reporting and reporting, but..." in the lounge

Based on the " to crawl through 2,000 emails, 100 at a time" comment, a more appropriate suggestion would seem to be the Forum FAQ amd the E-Mail Forum section .... this is a bit of a different type of speed issue, and this one has several specific FAQ entries.

I agree, if you are comfortable with Quick Reporting, it is almost always quicker to do that via your Webmail's "Report as spam" Link than it is to do that via your Very Easy Reporting (VER) screen (also known as the "report held spam" screen or the "Held Mail Log" screen, which is no longer being developed), and you can Quick Report up to 999 spams at a time with Webmail (by changing the number in the "Options / Display Options / Messages per page in the mailbox view" Box).

...Have a look at spam Reporting Addresses and see if that helps.

...Just be aware that you are much more likely to report your own e-mail service provider if you use Quick Reporting (and also VER, perhaps?).

That's what I meant by "if you are comfortable with Quick Reporting". :)

I just got the following in a mailsc.spamcop.net window entitled "Gateway Timeout - In read" while trying to "Send Reports Now":

Gateway Timeout

The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server.

The stats don't show anything out of the ordinary for a Monday.

The webform is extremely slow tonight from the UK - taking up to a minute or more to return a parse and another 25-30 seconds to complete SMTP processing. It's been like that for most of the day.. :( It's impossible to use it at the moment for any quantity of spam... :(

I was seeing the same thing for some IP lookups earlier today, probably related to this APNIC issue: http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...indpost&p=29218

Thanks Steven, I saw that, but I get the impression that the slowness is pretty consistent irrespective of the IP lookup region, (mind, most of mine do seem to be APNIC these days.... <_< ), and the SMTP processing is also very slow which I assumed wouldn't be affected by the APNIC issues. Is it not slow in the States at the moment? (The last report I processed through the webform not long ago took over a minute to return a parse and 26 seconds to return an SMTP completion). The forum posting is also v. slow for me. A traceroute to spamcop.net looks reasonably normal. My ADSL speed is normal at 923kbps to UK servers at the moment so there doesn't seem to be much UK congestion either.

It's positively on strike this Tuesday morning!.... :huh: I'm getting regular parsing response delays of more than a minute and even SMTP submit response delays between 20s-50s meaning it's taking up to 1½-2 minutes to report one spam!... :blink:
