  1. Mail is coming along well. now my server or ISP has cleared thieir backlog of up to 12 hours Accumulated mail, including another of yours is now on my britishlibrary account which suits me fine. Meanwhile blocked spam is building up in my held mail. I can check the report every day on britishlibrary (no genuine mail has so far appeared.) Occasionally I can then trash and delete on spamcop. At one time there were more tha 400 spam messages. So Spamcop is solving a very serious problem and well well worth its 30 dollars. Thanks very much Michael
  2. Steven Thanks Overnight I have deleted forwarding which was michael.stevens[at]britishlibrary.net added all the days of the week to reports and pressed submit. I have not changed my password yet. I have checked all the relevant entries carefully. My Account Name in Outlook/server is entered as snevets[at]spamcp.net This morning I get some sound mail and one obvious spam in my Outlook british library account ( for a short while yesterday I did get one of my many trial messages to myself on spamcop webmail).
  3. I have replied to this in Emmail Setup but do not yet see it there. Should I repeat the reply Thanks Michael
  4. Thanks I seek to have mail sent to michael.stevens[at]britishlibrary.net and would pick it up from Spamcop (on webmail I suppose). The trouble is that it does not get thrpugh even after waiting some hours Held Mail and Trash on the extreme right of the display are functioning ok To raise a new question Is it possible that my broadband address to CONNECT aouf70.xtreme.pipex.net (in the the panel that appears when I go to send/receive on my Outlook Express 6) has to do with the problem? Note I do see a spamcop message among the rest in the Held Mail box in the middle of the Spamcop toolbar I am not sure I understand other parts of your message rgar may or may not be relevant Thanks Michael PS Hope I am in the right forum

  6. Wazoo I am rsuming this on the e-mail forim at your request I aim to set up spamcop and use my michael.stevens[at]britishlibrary address I have just now altered my server name to snevets only leaving out spamcop.net It therefore reads pop.spamcop.net smtp.dsl.pipex.com Name snevets I will now try sending a trial from my address to myself and wait an hour or so to see if it goes through Thanks for your continuing help Michael LATER Mail not accepted I am reverting to full user name under name onmy server
  7.

Hope I am beginning to get the hang of this thanks Michael
  8. What we have here is a poster that starts new Topics, asks a questions, responses have been posted, yet there's not a sign that any of those answers have been read, acted upon, or just ignored. What I'm going to do now is track down all of his posts thus far, grab them and all the responses, merge them into a new Topic, put that over in E-Mail Set-up, PM the poster, and cross my fingers that he will follow along and maybe even clear up what's actually going on ...???? I believe it was you that offered the same advice to his second Posting, but again, it appears to have either been not read or ignored ..??? Thankyou for replies to my queries wich I have read. Is this where replies are made if not where?. Please remember I am an ordinary e-mailer who has recourse to your sophisticated program only because I suffer so much spam. i want to keep my unique e-mail address.Span has been successfully removed but all my mail is now locked. Maybe it will clear in the morning. I will put any new Messages in jhe e-mail folder but thought this was to do with my set up . Apologies if any are dua e-mail direct to me would help if it will get through. Regards Michael
