  1. Thank you for your replies. I called my ISP -Tele2- again not too long ago, as the issue was not fixed, and after the help desk man looked into it he contacted one of the engineers. It turns out the spam filter my ISP is using sees the word "spam" in "spamcop" and flags it as spam. The engineer could not fix that I was told. Luckily I rarely get spam since quite some time, so it's no biggie for me at all. Years ago I got a 100 a day, all fake FedEx, PayPal, Master Card etc. emails telling me there was one or another issue and asking asking me to click on the link to fill out my data on the respective sites to have it fixed. (Which I never did.) That's when I found SpamCop and began reporting all of the spam mails. After six weeks they had diminished to nothing. If I still were getting lots of spam, and also others had the issue of their ISP's spam filter blocking their reporting to SpamCop, I would suggest the latter no longer use the word "spam" in their reporting and asking for confirmation email addresses.
  2. PS: A very lovely sounding young lady from Tele2.nl just checked it all out and found the bounce notification. She had never heard of SpamCop but was very interested when I told her about it, and she was glad there are people fighting spam. She said she was going to find out more about it as she had a very full spam box herself. We laughed when she agreed Tele2.nl must have read "spam" in "spamcop" and therefore blocked it... 😃 She wanted to know the address SpamCop sends it's e-mails to me with, and luckily I could find it in the trash, the last one from October when things still worked fine. Now she forwards it to the technicians who will set that e-mail address again as legit, and hopefully permanently. I had to give permission for them to get into my e-mail account, and give them an alternative e-mail address where they will let me know -in max 5 days- that it is fixed, with a link to reset my password.
  3. Thank you. In the past when this happened they told me they themselves could not do anything about it, as another company handled that. But it was resolved as I insisted it could be and should.
  4. Hello, lately I don't receive confirmation request emails from SpamCop anymore. On my account page is says: "Bounce error Your email address, (xxx) has returned a bounce: Subject: Delivery Status Notification (Failure) Reason: 5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-'Sorry, we do not accept connections from=" I'm not aware of having made any changes. Also, when I tried to report this issue here: https://www.spamcop.net/ces/contact.shtml after tapping on the Submit button that page disappeared and thia page appeared http://mail.spamcop.net/contact4.php
  5. Thank you for the response. It will be obvious I would not send myself an e-mail to blackmail myself. (Can't believe I did not think of that. ) So if I get another invitation from myself again to donate money to myself "or else" I will report it.
  6. PS: Tried to give spam a capital S in the title after posting this thread, but no dice. After changing spam to spam it still appears as spam. Oh well, no biggie. 😊 Funny, here writing spam with a capital in the above line it also appears with a lower case s. I guess spam does not deserve a capital anywhere. 😄
  7. Hi, yesterday I got a blackmail e-mail. Someone send it seemingly from and to my e-mail address. As if I send it to myself. He claimed he had hacked a porn site I had been going to, had gotten my address there, had loaded a Trojan on my PC, used my webcam to spy on me, and had images of me looking very excited at pictures and clips on that site. He also had everything I have on my PC. That I had to pay him €35 to get rid of him, and he gave a bitcoin address. I know all that is bogus -not that I've never visited a porn site- as I always have my webcam lens closed off, except for an occasional Skype talk. Plus I have no malware on my laptop according to Emsisoft, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro and the free herdProtect which uses 68 scan engines. But I did not forward it to SpamCop, as he used my e-mail address to send it from. Although I suppose SpamCop can see in the header that is not coming from me. So in case he sends me more, shall I just tap it away again, or report it to SpamCop?
  8. Hi, And old "Message could not be delivered" issue is back. Plus some strange new ones; I can't log into my report page anymore, and sending the filled in contact form fails to work also. (....Deleted for being obsolete now...) See below: ................ PS: In the mean time the login and contact form issue are solved; they were due to my AdGuard settings. I was able to fill in the contact form and send it.
  9. I don't know anything about updating mailhosts. First time I heard about it. Thank you for providing that email address. I'll utilize it. PS: Richard just fixed it after I send an email to that address, and I was able to report the spam I had just gotten. Thanks for your help.
  10. I guess this one will do: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6262670007z416c5441002e4bdfd4fb38146ddb1d22z
  11. Thank you. I would like to continue on the second thread I started after this one because I couldn't find this one,and thought maybe I had made a mistake and it didn't appear. Second thread:
  12. Thank you for your reply. Only now I returned here because I just got another spam. That is about the frequency lately: I get one once a week. That's why I said it's not a biggie. Looking at a whole screen full of header data I don't understand and have no idea what is what. I made 2 screen shots covering all that, but not knowing if it would be a good idea to make those header data public here I haven't attached them. I would like to send them though email to someone from SpamCop though. But I don't have an email address of an administrator. I used to and was helped by him a few times, but that kind helper has passed on I understand, and I don't even have his address any more.
  13. After years of succesfully reporting, lately reporting results in this message appearing on my reporting page: "Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source Mailhost: Please correct this situation - register every email address where you receive spam No source IP address found, cannot proceed. (...) Nothing to do." To my knowledge I have not changed anything. And don't know how to fix this. Luckily I've hardly been getting spam for quite some time already (was very different once when I got about a 100 a day which I all reported for over a month till it finally diminished) so it's not a biggie now. But if it's easy to fix...
  14. I admit this brought a smile to my face -and I have one on it now while typing this- when I discovered spam in my message box here. Dear miss Jenny is looking for friendship. I already am satisfied in that department, so feel free to contact her and start something wonderful:
