  1. I have been receiving porn spam for sites hosted by Namecheap for months now. This takes the porn of a group text message with just a link to a porn sites as the only content. The sites are hosted by Namecheap. Namecheap refuses to do anything. This has been happening for month and some of the messages are in the middle of the night. It seem Namecheap is actually in the business of protecting porn spammers.
  2. I have not had any problem with copying the headers out of Yahoo. However, when I copy the body I just get the text not the website addresses linked to that text. Because of that I am not reporting any scam website referenced in the spam. The view source option gives me the source for the whole Yahoo page not the message.
  3. How do I do this with Yahoo Mail. In the past I would just forward as attachment but that is not a function which is available with Yahoo any more.
  4. This has not worked for me for weeks. Who knows if it will ever come back.
  5. ALT+Shift+F is sill not working for me. This is two computers with two different browsers. Both browsers have been shut down several time without any change.
  6. When I use the ALT + Shift + F method my messages are still forwarded in-line not as an attachment. This is both with IE and Firefox.
  7. It is still not working for me. I tried with both the newest release of Firefox and IE10.
  8. Not "cause" but certainly someone from Spamcop could reach out to Yahoo and try to work out the problem.
  9. Can someone remove the [Resolved] tag from this thread? Obviously this is no longer resolved. Should we start a new thread?
  10. I report spam from my Yahoo account to Spamcop regularly. As of this AM, the Alt + Shift + F no longer works. It looks like Yahoo changed something to take away this functionality.
  11. For awhile this stopped happening much for me. Now I am seeing this problem regularly again.
  12. Why can't Spamcop and Yahoo get together and fix this?
  13. This is still happening just not with every message.
  14. At this point I am not going to bother reporting any spam. I'll check back in the future to see if this starts working again.
  15. I cannot spend any more time on this that I was. The pattern I described seems to be common for these PHISHING emails yet those addresses are not reported. I was hoping maybe by adding these addresses to the report I might save someone from being a victim of fraud. I can only hope someone else will do this now.
  16. I reported another spam message and received the sam,e rtesponse: 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. Add/edit your mailhost configuration Finding full email headers Submitting spam via email (may work better) Example: What spam headers should look like Nothing to do.
  17. I reported another spam message and received the same response: 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. Add/edit your mailhost configuration Finding full email headers Submitting spam via email (may work better) Example: What spam headers should look like Nothing to do.
  18. This just happened again. Did Yahoo change something? http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5887753314z4...16854fe462df87z
  19. In the last tow days several messages I have forwarded to Spamcop have come back with the following parsing error: 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. What am I doing wrong? Please not my email provider is Yahoo.
  20. I have received three PHISHING email in the last 24 hours which fit the pattern of having a different reply-to address or instructions in the scam message to send information to a different address. For example one of these messages instructs the recipient to reply to an AOL address. Normally I would have looked up the abuse address and added that address to the report along with a comment listing the actual address. Now that I can't do that, I can only hope someone else does or someone might become a victim who would not have.
  21. I know someone who was a victim of a scam. That was my motivation. I don't get that many of these emails but they ones I do get many times fit the pattern when it is sent by one address, if the receiver clicks "reply" it goes to another address, and in the actual wording of the scam is a third email address tell the receiver to send their information there. Spamcop is getting the first one but the others are not reported. If a scammer sends a large number of scam messages and finds that address is shut down, the two reply to addresses are still available to receive any information a victim sends. I was trying to report some of those addresses. In the box for notes, I would just make not of all three email addresses used in the scam. I don't know if I was wasting my time or not?!?
  22. If I understand you correctly, this happened when I ran our of "fuel"? Most of the emails I would call "phishing" seem to have this three different email addresses as a pattern, it would seem this reply-to address would be something Spamcop would handle. That is the address where anyone who was scammed would send their information.
  23. After forwarding spam to Spamcop and clicking on the link in the return email, there was a box where the user could enter an email address and comments to go with it. One use for this was when the spam was phishing where the email comes from one email address, the reply-to email address is a different address, and a third reply email address is listed in the body of the actual PHISHING message. Spamcop does not seem to pick up the last two of these but their was always a box where the person reporting the phishing could enter an abuse address. It seems like the reply-to address is important because if anyone falls for the phishing scam, it is that address which would receive the information from that person.
  24. What happened to the other email addresses option?
