  1. The server is not down or you would not be getting that message. A server link will generally send a simple message to someone who should be responsible for the system. With the recent changes, that would be in question right now. Some part of the process is not working properly and that part needs to be addressed.
  2. I am getting the error every couple of attempts as well. I user the "contact us" link on the error page to report it.
  3. Thank you David. They may have changed something because my original testing was getting bounce messages from the Yahoo servers I was using for the test saying the spamcop servers did not recognize the address.
  4. Well, just figured out that this forum was one of the places that still had my Plus Address. Oh well, it's fixed now.
  5. As I said, I've moved everything I am aware of. This was only for any stragglers. I missed that conversation.
  6. Yesterday, my main address was bouncing with the same error everyone was getting. Today that is working but my "Plussed addresses" are still bouncing. --- Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address. <x+y[at]spamcop.net>: Remote host said: 550 5.1.1 <x+y[at]spamcop.net>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table [RCPT_TO] --- I've moved everything I can find to another email address, but I'm sure I have missed something after using an address for nearly 10 years. All accounts I created to spamcop were created with x+company[at]spamcop.net to determine how my address was getting on certain lists. It was useful and I have worked with a number of address buyers and sellers, mostly in those early days, to explain why what they were doing was wrong. I need plussed addressing to work or there is effectively no forwarding for me.
  7. I am deeply disappointed in this decision as a long time supporter. My heart sank a little yesterday reading this message yesterday. I use SpamCop to collect all my other email accounts for a single collection point, to provide SMTP, and to provide many email addresses for various accounts, mostly the opposite of what I can now use it for. I second the above questions, though I may/may not request a refund and simply let the account expire to try and catch/transfer the many accounts that I used spamcop for. I will be using my ISP to collect my email from my various other accounts. I will continue to report my spam, possibly through a new free reporting account which will reset my reporting number from the current incorrect number from several years ago: Welcome, Steven P. Underwood (Home). Your average reporting time is: 6.3 days; Not bad.
  8. I am getting: [an error occurred while processing this directive] while logging into both http://members.spamcop.net/ (free account) and http://mailsc.spamcop.net/ (paid account).
  9. Here at home, I use Windows Live Mail and turning off the SSL switch allows SMTP to work again for either port 25 or port 587. This might not be a sloution for everyone, but I have no problem remofing the SSL. I will be opening a support ticket through webmail and giving them this information.
  10. Just to keep everyone here updated and to be fair, today, I have started having problems sending messages through spamcop's smtp server. I will update whatever I find.
  11. I continue to have no problems using SMTP either from home, work (when sending personal messages), or my cell phone. I use it every day to report between 30-50 spam messages sent to my wife's gmail account.
  12. I use CESMail SMTP exclusively on my computers (all laptops) because the network they are on changes often, as already stated. I just do not know anyone still using hotmail, msn, or AOL, so have not had any issues.
  13. Go to www.spamcop.net and login. On the web page above the area to paste your spam, you should see a line that starts: Forward your spam to: The next section is an email address to use for reporting. Paste that address into Mailwasher and you should be all set.
  14. If that server is ever considered out of beta, I would also hope that change would be made. For now, the information needed is in the link I provided: SMTP server: smtp.cesmail.net SMTP port: 25 (default) or 587 if your ISP blocks port 25 SMTP authentication must be enabled. Use your regular spamcop.net username and password you always use.
  15. Since you know the spamcop code so well, why don't you write your own parser with IPv6 working and we can all use your code and leave SPamCop behind. Sorry, but I am tired of everyone coming in here "knowing" how easy it would be to fix this problem when they have no idea what the code looks like, code which was self-described by the original developer as "spaghetti".
  16. From the FAQ: http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=6825
  17. I'm not sure if this will answer your question or not, but the daily email will only tell you once about a message in the Held Mail folder, then marks it read. The report will also not show any messages you transfer into the Held Mail folder. It has not deleted email from my Held Mail folder in the past as I have had some messages get too old to report in there. I have copied some messages into my Held Mail folder to confirm this is still the case. I do not get many messages in the Held Mail folder since I turned on Grey-listing. I will report my findings tomorrow. I do not see an Option to manage the Held Mail folder contents so you may also want to use the Problem button within Web-mail to see if they can figure out the issue.
  18. If you have the same symptoms as the OP (never receive back a confirmation email) then your outgoing reports are likely being blocked by your ISP as spam and the spam is never reaching SpamCop. If when you go to your reporting account you see spam waiting to be reported, your emails are being blocked on the way back to you. I use Windows Live Mail to report spam that gets caught in several gmail.com spam folders but I also have a spamcop.net email address and use the spamcop.net SMTP server to send all email.
  19. Getting closer... this was posted in the newsgroups... --- From: Richard W Sent: Friday, February 17, 2012 9:48 PM Newsgroups: spamcop Subject: Re: How long do IPv6 spammers get to skate? IPv6 parsing and reporting support will be in the next maintenance update (4.7). It's going through QA right now. Richard --- Thank you Richard for this update
  20. David, in the past 6 months I have received 4 different mailings from CC that I did not sign up for and they were appropriately reported.
  21. I run MailStore automatically from a schedualed task each night. "C:\MAIL\MailStore Home\Application\MailStoreHome.exe" /portable /c archive --id="1" I then have a command file I run from time to time (could schedule that as well) to mirror the files to the network. I have another command file to mirror back to C:\Mail so it can be viewed on any machine/account on my network. Sometimes it is a pain having so many home machines
  22. Simply ignoring a header (any header) will make anything beyond that header invalid because there is no way to determine where the header came from (or went to). That will make the entire parse invalid. I report all spam that makes it to either the SpamCop Held Mail folder (very little due to grey listing) and all spam in 4 different GMail accounts (one for each family member). I also report all spam to my work account. It amounts to about 15-20 spam/day. I have been doing this for close to 10 years now. I have seen the IPv6 problem maybe 20 times and only over the last 12 months or so.
  23. Until there is an important email that they did not get... I too am in your shoes and you are right, you can't win. We do use a white list feature for our company so we can let our bigger clients messages come through without problem.
  24. I got one of these as well (one of the 3 reports, likely) and forwarded to deputies. The reply I got back indicated that the IronPort devices have an option to reply to the spam which was insisted upon by engineering, but is at least turned off by default and hidden in the settings. Apparently one of their customers is using that option and it will likely get them listed.
  25. Here is a pointer we have provided in similar situations before: http://www.dnsbl.com/2007/08/what-to-do-if...d-on-apews.html
