More and more DEVNULL reports

Recommended Posts

It seems I have been seeing more SpamCop reports going to devnull lately. For example, I am getting spam via salesforce.com and those ALL go to devnull. Is this because salesforce.com is not acting? Do they have a behind the scenes deal with CISCO (SpamCop)? Salesforce does have a working abuse@salesforce.com address so it can't be lack of that. Any thoughts?

I don't have an IP or tracking URL so I am not able to duplicate a look up, but my memory remembers that I never got a reply from salesforce spam.  It did stop after a while, but maybe they were list washing their single opt-in lists.

I have a friend who's fairly well respected within Salesforce.com. I shot him a sample of the emails (consistently from The Economist who refuses to honor opt-out requests). I can block them easily but When I have extra time, I prefer to work on the root of the problem.

devnull because of 1 of 3 reasons.

1) Does not want munged reports
2) No abuse address is available to sent reports to
3) Action has reported been taken against abuser, thus no more reports are needed, but you will see such a message in the report.
