How long does Spamcop archive reports?

Recommended Posts

We're curious to know how long Spamcop archives its spam reports. How far back in time do reports remain in the system before they're tossed? After an extensive search of the Spamcop site, we're unable to locate info on this topic. If it's available somewhere, please excuse this post and point us to a page where that info is available.

We're posting this because we may be able to take a notorious spammer to court. While we maintain extensive records of a serious spam attack on our domain in 2003, corroborative evidence on the Spamcop site could prove helpful.

Thanks in advance for any tips or help.

Noting that this "archiving" did not occur until sometime after IronPort got involved, moved the reporting systems into their datacenters, performed some hardware upgrades that included massive hard drives ..... bottom line, the archiving of spam reports for the use of Tracking URLs is currently 90 days. However, as you have noted in other Discussions, the spam submittal is saved, afain for the use of Tracking URLs .. and this is important to note ... such that by using a Tracking URL, that spam is parsed again at "that" time .. results may be much different that the original parse ... as you've indicated, spammer switched ISPs, hosts changed, IP address were re-assigned .... on and on .... talk to your lawyer .. this data is not useable in court in the way you seem to be suggesting .... not much there but some transitory data that can only be seen /used as something not much more than generic data ... but again, I'm not lawyer
