  1. I am really sorry to be such a bother. I am really not a trouble maker. :-(
  2. Now it's getting really crazy . . . I went in to change my password ... not finding that in the HORDE interface, I went to www.spamcop.net to read the docs to find out how to change the password. So I did a SEARCH in the HELP section ... here's the response GOOGLE SENT : > GOOGLE : We're sorry... > > ... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. > To protect our users, we can't process your request right now. > See Google Help for more information. Someone else go there and try the SEARCH mechanism and see if Google sends YOU the same response.
  3. YES... my SpamCop email address is BLOCKED, but by IP address, not "Showker" You can clearly see that my IP address is NOT the IP address that's been blocked. (You got admin tools, you can see it in my profile!) Here's one -- > Thank you for contacting Proofpoint's IP Reputation department > via our website. > We have received a number of spam messages from > 216.154.195.49, > and this is why your IP address has been added to our block list. I wrote back saying that the spam was not from my address, they responded: > In short, we shall not be removing this IP address from > our list(s) at the present moment in time, as your > current issue is still in need of a definitive resolution So I turned that one over to legal. THEN : > Please note that this IP address is currently listed on > (at least) 1 other blacklist (please see either > http://www.mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?ac...a216.154.195.49 > or > http://www.robtex.com/ip/216.154.195.49.html#blacklists > for further details). > I also think AOL is blocking -- AOL users don't get the mail, and GoDaddy users. So now I'm really depressed and frustrated ... I've relied on this address for a dozen years, and, according to Knujon, have reported over 15,000 unique spammer's addresses in the last year alone. NOW here's what I cannot figure out . . . here's what they said was the reason I'm blocked : >---------------------------- > Received: from c60.cesmail.net (c60.cesmail.net [216.154.195.49]) > by DELETED with ESMTP id DELETED > (version=TLSv1/SSLv3 cipher=RC4-SHA bits=128 verify=NOT) > for <DELETED>; Wed, 05 Sep 2012 03:28:01 -0400 > Received: from unknown (HELO smtprelay1.cesmail.net) ([192.168.1.111]) > by c60.cesmail.net with ESMTP; 05 Sep 2012 03:27:26 -0400 > Received: from User (198-101-205-111.static.cloud-ips.com [198.101.205.111]) > by smtprelay1.cesmail.net (Postfix) with ESMTPA id DELETED; > Wed, 5 Sep 2012 03:10:18 -0400 (EDT) > Reply-To: <barr_evansthomas4[at]yahoo.co.jp> > From: "Barrister Evans Thomas"<barr_evansthomas[at]yahoo.co.jp> > Subject: With Due Respect > Date: Wed, 5 Sep 2012 07:10:22 -0000 > X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000 > X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2600.0000 > Message-Id: DELETED > To: DELETED > Yet here's a sample of the mail I'm testing with friends to try and sniff out the problems ... > Received: from unknown (HELO epsilon2) ([192.168.1.60]) > by c60.cesmail.net with ESMTP; 06 Sep 2012 08:39:35 -0400 > Received: from unknown (HELO epsilon2) ([192.168.1.60]) > by c60.cesmail.net with ESMTP; 06 Sep 2012 08:39:35 -0400 > Received: from pool-72-66-230-57.ronkva.east.verizon.net > (pool-72-66-230-57.ronkva.east.verizon.net [72.66.230.57]) by > webmail.spamcop.net (Horde MIME library) with HTTP; > hu, 06 Sep 2012 08:39:35 -0400 > Date: Thu, 06 Sep 2012 08:39:35 -0400 > From: showker[at]spamcop.net > To: Z Han <zbea[at]mac.com> > Subject: RE: Mystery > MIME-Version: 1.0 > Content-Disposition: inline > Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit > User-Agent: Internet Messaging Program (IMP) H3 (4.1.4) NOTE: the '216' blocked IP is NOT in the header. What's that mean??? AOL is not sending bounce messages. But the recipient didn't get the email. GoDaddy hosted web site addresses didn't send bounces either, But the recipient didn't get the email. I've contacted the other two lists mentioned by Proofpoint, but no response. NOTE : the "robtex.com" one is using a WhoIS masking service, and that raises a few flags too! :-(
  4. I do not think it was compromised, at least in any way that I have control over. I log directly into the site email. IT IS NOT popping. I use a Mac, no zombies or Trojans that could be sending the mail. Changing the password after the fact doesn't help this misery. I am frequently the victim of "Joe jobs" ... where the spammer sends a ton of spam supposedly 'from' my spamcop account. Yes, it's happened before. I'm such a visible spam fighter, and now with Knujon going after ICANN -- I've got a big red TARGET painted on my back. Apple's Mac.com mail system sent back the SPAMCOP IP address, NOT my IP address. That issue is DIFFERENT from this forum issue. I only came to the forum for help... except : When I logged into the FORUMS in order to ask questions and get help, my ID and Passworld were accepted as always. Except then once in, there was an ERROR passed "You do not have permission" ... I thought "What's with this???" and figured it was due to this situation. I searched on down through my accounts file and saw the Photoshop911 forum account. Since UGN was dead, this must be the one I was using. I operate forums too ... www.DTG-Forums.com ... and it's misery removing the black-hat SEO operators who register in dozens and dozens of accounts. However ... On YOUR forum ERROR REPLY there are FOUR "remedy" links ... one of them is : "...START ANOTHER ACCOUNT" ... if that's a That's a no-no, then you shouldn't be telling users to do that as a remedy to getting blocked. I dont' understand that. The IP address being blocked by two entities is not MY machine/provider address... but one somewhere else. I don't understand this. I've used the UGN many times here since 2008. I don't even remember any problems in 2008 -- what they were about or what -- to my recolection I've never done anything to get banned here. Since nearly the beginning of spamcop I've been an avid supporter and evangelist. Want proof? Go to http://www.UGNN.com/ and search for "spamcop.com" (something like 700 files) ... with my articles in 60-seconds.com and DTG Magazine supporting and promoting SpamCop there's no way of telling how many subscribers I've sent. This is not evidence of someone "bad" or who should be banned, or who should not get a little help when the spam cartels fight back. I think Julian would agree -- he as much as said so in our discussions together at the 2000 FTC spam CON in Washington D.C. What is this and how do I do it ? How can I see what "Wazoo" told me when the UGNN account was banned, and why it was banned. How do I find that? I really don't remember that episode, although you're right -- I've been slammed by spammers many times. Thanks again for the help so far. :-) SAMPLE OF ALLEGED spam THEY ACCUSED ME OF SENDING >---------------------------- > Received: from c60.cesmail.net (c60.cesmail.net [216.154.195.49]) > by DELETED with ESMTP id DELETED > (version=TLSv1/SSLv3 cipher=RC4-SHA bits=128 verify=NOT) > for <DELETED>; Wed, 05 Sep 2012 03:28:01 -0400 > Received: from unknown (HELO smtprelay1.cesmail.net) ([192.168.1.111]) > by c60.cesmail.net with ESMTP; 05 Sep 2012 03:27:26 -0400 > Received: from User (198-101-205-111.static.cloud-ips.com [198.101.205.111]) > by smtprelay1.cesmail.net (Postfix) with ESMTPA id DELETED; > Wed, 5 Sep 2012 03:10:18 -0400 (EDT) > Reply-To: <barr_evansthomas4[at]yahoo.co.jp> > From: "Barrister Evans Thomas"<barr_evansthomas[at]yahoo.co.jp> > Subject: With Due Respect > Date: Wed, 5 Sep 2012 07:10:22 -0000 > X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000 > X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2600.0000 > Message-Id: DELETED > To: DELETED >
  5. For about 8 hours yesterday, Wednesday, September 5th, my Spamcop was totally unreliable, very sluggish -- taking 2 to 3 minutes to act on a command, not sending mail, etc. This morning I find I'm BLOCKED by several networks because of "Spamming" I couldn't even get into THIS FORUM It let me sign in, but then said "You do not have permission to view this content" (When using my spamcop account and address) Now I cannot reach anyone -- I've posted false positives, etc., to no avail. The admin of THIS FORUM will not even answer my email. What gives. IF YOU WONDER if I'm a spammer, Search http://www.ugnn.com/ for the word "Spamcop" :-( Signed : NOT HAPPY CAMPER
  6. Over the past couple of days we've accumulated and reported 188 spams, all from the same cybercrime cartel, and only this morning discovered none were reported because "SPAMCOP CANNOT RESOLVE" the email. Rather than a lengthy description, here's a screen that pretty much tells the story : http://www.ugnn.com/safenetting/cannot_resolve.jpg I can send the CODE of the offending spams if Spamcop would like to fix the problem
  7. Legal indicates that our data alone may be challenged, and in that event we could refer to the spamcop link which would validate the claim, and represent an "expert" 3rd party authentication of the spam. However, you didn't address any easy way to match the spam with the report. I will let them know that 90 days is the limit ... that should actually do it, because they're still sending an average of 400 spams per day, ongoing. So if the court insists on going through 36,000 spams just to prove the spam is actual spam, then so be it. Additionally, the strong issue of th suit is that EACH AND EVERY spam WAS REPORTED to the admin hosting the site. ICANN and ANNA, as well as the three REGISTRARS are are all implicated so we need to show that they were indeed contacted with reports -- which were ignored. That's the crux of the suit. I realize we'll be unsuccessful in killing the spammer -- it's the Registrars and hosts we're after. and ultimately ICANN for allowing rogue registrars. (We believe if a registrar does not act, or is rogue then the crime moves up the chain to enablers, and just need the issue signed-off-on by a Federal Judge!) thanks for the help
  8. What's the quick and easy way to match a specific 'quick report' to the actual spam... without clicking the "saved for future reference" link? For several months we have been tracking one particular spam cartel in building a law suit. I've saved all the spams in raw form, and all the corresponding SpamCop "quick reports" as evidence. All spam is databased for URLs, subject lines, and IP addresses. Since we're talking thousands of spams, and thousands of SpamCop reports, is there an easy, quick way to match the specific report with the specific spam WITHOUT clicking on the link "saved for future reference" ???? (roughly 6 to 23 spams per hour, 24/7 since April 2011.) The case began in MARCH of 2011, and some of the links which were "saved for future reference" are "NOT FOUND" thanks in advance Fred
