  1. Thanks again. I got Richard on the other end of that address, and he indicates he's resolved my issue.
  2. Thanks for the pointer. I tried several SC addresses that were recommended in early January, and all my messages bounced. I then sent a message to Richard W. on 01/08, which has received no response. I'll try the address you provided.
  3. There doesn't appear to be anyone at the inn . No acknowledgement of PMs or emails to any address I can scrounge up.
  4. I don't believe that is the problem. I use the Outlook plug-in Spamgrabber to auto-submit spam. It's configured to handle everything for me. I've been using it daily since about 2012. The ONLY thing that changed in November was the provider for one of the POP accounts that this Outlook client manages. The issue is that Spamcop is unwilling to accept email from an "unknown/unregistered" provider (the new one). The other POP account being serviced by this Outlook client still works just fine... as it has for many years... just by clicking the "Send spam" button I've added to the toolbar, that invokes the Spamgrabber plugin. And since Outlook headers are (apparently) not 'gettable' in a real format from Outlook, I have no way to properly register the new provider headers with Spamcop... so it sees THOSE spam notifications as bogus.
  5. Ongoing issue since November. Is there anyone out there on the SC side of things who can assist?? I've tried the email addresses posted in Don's 'announcement' thread (see link in #9 above), but they bounced as bad addresses. I've tried PMing Richard W, with as yet no response. Just trying to do my part to combat spammers...
  6. He's definitely MIA... Last Active Nov 24 2015 12:34 PM Hopefully it's just an extended vacation, and he wasn't kidnapped by aliens.
  7. Email sent. I have a "spammy looking" domain... so if you don't see it, check your spam bucket. Thanks.
  8. Existing email address, but on a new host. I deleted the old entry, then added the new one. I got the account config email and followed these instructions (I obfuscated the super-secret email address in my paste below)-- So... I hit the email address link. It fires up a blank addressed email. I drag and drop the email into the blank. I press send. The response email I got was... I'm using Outlook 2016, and so collecting headers manually is a royal PITA... so I would have much preferred the forward-as-attachment method offered me to have worked. Suggestions? edit: I already use SpamGrabber add-in to make submissions work smoothly, and it has been working for at least the past 5 years that way... I'm just not able to "register" the new host/address combo so I can get back to submitting.
  9. In my OP, I asked for assistance in understanding the actual source of the issue. Until I know that, I'm just spitting into the wind. IF it is from my ISP, then we're not talking about a "silly, but relatively small provider..." since Comcast and it's holdings represent 40% of the US wired broadband market (I'll agree with the 'more reasonable' part, because Comcast is certainly not). IF Comcast decided to universally apply a tool of this type, then we (you, me, Spamcop, and everybody else) would quickly grind to a halt when the spammers gain their newfound freedom. I'm not trying to change the world... just do my part to help. If I can't, I can't. I already contacted the URL in the bounce message, but that may well be a black hole (at least they haven't indicated any kind of response thus far... I realize it's only been a day). Thanks for the comments.
  10. Thanks, I realize that Spamcop didn't cause this, but at some point it certainly IS a Spamcop/everybody problem if we aren't able to report spam to you. I was hoping for a little more insight, and a little less "not our problem" response from you guys. I guess I was hoping for too much.
