    The volume is too great to report - so I'm only reporting a minor proportion and not sending any accompanying message.

    spam Flood

    The volume of spam over the past few weeks has been so great (10x the usual 10 spam messages a day ?) that my Spamcop account is depleted of 'fuel' for the first time in several years.

    Spamcop no longer functioning: "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" https://members.spamcop.net/

    Yes - with a BT account. This morning, Spamcop seems swamped, making manual submissions impractical - Spamcop submissions usually take only a few seconds, but are currently much longer ("Waiting for members.spamcop.net" 10x ?) and occasionally timing out ("An error occurred while processing your request" also "The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request").
  5. Many thanks ... 1) Past Reports - facility is now restored 2) Webmail - so presumably the former screening process (inc. 'held mail') no longer applies ?
  6. I have also found the same 'Unknown action' for several days and now find that the forwarding no longer works, nor can I login into webmail.spamcop.net: "The connection has timed out The server at webmail.spamcop.net is taking too long to respond..." (since yesterday p.m.)
  7. Another e-mail address had started receiving a load of spam, but wasn't registered with Spamcop. However it wasn't obvious from the online help material how to register the additional e-mail address. Regards, Dave.
  8. Since sorted - submitting spam with unregistered e-mail address and Spamcop presents an opportunity to add further e-mail address via submission/response test.
  9. I wish to add another e-mail address to my Spamcop reporting account - how is this achieved ? (I know it needs registering but can't readily see how). TIA. Dave.
  10. Update: further tests have resolved the issue, but this would not have arisen without BT Mail problems ... After some serious password change problems with BT/Yahoo Mail, my SpamCop webmail service is no longer picking up my incoming BT e-mail messages. However, the Outlook 'test account settings' for my SpamCop e-mail registers as working (used to collect incoming BT e-mail), when it clearly isn't. Also, some BT customers have been experiencing major problems with BT Mail and the latest transition, e.g., BTCare Community Forums ... Re: Transfer to BT Mail https://community.bt.com/t5/Other-Broadband.../1230629#M85311 Any suggestions for a test/check to resolve this problem would be much appreciated. Dave.
  11. Many thanks - I think that this is the simplest solution. Dave.
  12. "Can you forward Yahoo to SpamCop?" - yes, but it discards the original header detail. "I'm still seeing full headers in Yahoo webmail (inbox and sent folders anyway)" - me, too, but there appears to be no way of copying the header+body text. Dave.
  13. Many thanks - in principle this is OK, but the e-mail system in my case appears not to reveal the full message source (Yahoo webmail - headers only, unless I've missed something). Any ideas for a work-round, so that I can manually submit e-mails after they've been through the system ? TIA Dave.
  14. Just one further query - is there a setting which will save *all* incoming mail to a folder ? (for a few days) This is to hold 'escapees' for possible reporting. Dave.
  15. Many thanks - have already changed some of the settings as suggested. Dave.
