  1. There is a problem with the server certificate for https://forum.spamcop.net . Both Common Name and Subject Alternative Name on the certificate does not match forum.spamcop.net . Please fix.
  2. What about for others? Does it work or is it just me?
  3. Not for me: Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.86822c17.1629155462.7fc015fd
  4. I am getting Gateway Timeout after clicking Send spam Report(s) Now . Are others getting the same error or is it just me?
  5. I received an email with the body "This is an autoresponder. I'll never see your message." and the subject "Re: I'm in love". I never sent an e-mail with the subject "I'm in love" or "Re: I'm in love". Is this an e-mail that a spammer is sending to validate my e-mail address to make sure it exists or is it something else?
  6. I am a newbie. There are several things I don't understand. Please explain them to me. I read through http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...findpost&p=1018 . It is my understanding (possibly misunderstanding) that spammers test for valid e-mail addresses by randomly putting together combinations of letters to form an e-mail address, sending a forged e-mail to that randomly put together e-mail address, and adding e-mail addresses to their list which they do not receive bounce messages about in the mailbox for the forged address. I thought that bouncing messages would trick spammers into thinking an address is invalid. Please correct me if I am wrong. Therefore, if the spammer sets up an account at the forged address, wouldn't the chance that an innocent victim would receive a bounce message be very small? Or am I wrong? Why would an ISP have repercussions for users who send out bounce messages which are "effectively forged" to fight spam because aren't ISPs interested in fighting spam as well? I don't understand why e-mails saying a virus you sent was intercepted are a bad thing. It is my understanding (possibly false understanding) that those messages help people unknowing infected with a virus by notifying them that they have a virus. It is also my understanding (possibly false understanding) that those e-mails help people whose e-mail addresses are forged by viruses by notifying them that their e-mail address has been forged by a virus. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thank you.
  7. When a SpamCop Reporting system user receives spam, does it make sense for them to report the spam with SpamCop AND bounce the spam message or just report the spam with SpamCop?
