  1. Actually, what I initiall said was: I can understand that when every SpamCop user submitted a couple of messages a day that it adds up to a lot of spam reported every day. However, what if each SpamCop user was able to quickly report ALL of the spam they get each day. Would that be helpful at all? Or is just a couple a day per SpamCop user more than adequate for the purpose of keeping our Inboxes less spammy?
  2. That is part of the problem, due to the time it takes I have lost the inclination. Is the SpamCop reporting tool being worked on at all? The only changes that I have seen made to it over the past couple years have been visual. I have not seen any added functionality or push toward greater efficiency. Are changes like this in the works? I want to contribute more but with the current process I just do not have the time. Sure I could take a handful of random e-mail messages per day and process them, but I do not see that adding a mere fraction of what I get to the SpamCop list is making much of a dent. Thanks,
  3. I just revisited this and I cannot see how it would be hard. If I have spam in my queue and I decide to just delete them, it tells me right then how many messages I just deleted. They must have a way to count already. Why not put that on the Report spam page? Thanks,
  4. I agree with this request. I am a hosting provider and use the SpamCop Black List and handle spam for hundreds of users. I could easily be sending hundreds of uncaught spam to SpamCop. However, if I were to do that I would be spending ALL DAY literally just sitting in front of the SpamCop window waiting for one message to be processed at a time. I do not have that kind of time, nor would I choose to do it if I did have the kind of time. I have been a SpamCop member and user for a couple years now and have streamlined my own process pretty well. I can take a bunch of spam and get it to SpamCop quickly. But once here at SpamCop it take me at least 30 minutes if not more to get through it all. This has to change. I people like the one listed above still like the details, great, have the option to still see the details. I admit that I like the option of seeing the details, but not for all 50 spams per day! I only care so much. Just give me the basic info I need to see on a screen that has all the spam and a button that says "Nuke'em All" and then I can get onto other urgent things in my life. By the way, I am actually very grateful to SpamCop for the services provided. Why else would I take the time to come and write. Why else would I be a paying member. Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
  5. Fair enough. I just wanted to make sure it was on the request list. Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
  6. I use the spam e-mail address. When I get spam I forward it to that address. Then I visit the SpamCop site and go through my Unreported spam Saved. Currently, all it tells me is that I have unreported spam. I would like some indication of how many unreported spam messages I have left to report. Or is there a way to find that out that I have not found yet? Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
  7. Ok, this makes me feel better. Makes me feel better, that something is actually happening. Looks legit.

  8. Amen! I will continue the fight!
  9. This is good feedback. Thank you. I just need a little reassurance and justification for the time and effort involved. Any forward movement on the anti-spam/mer front is a good thing. Thank you again for reinforcing my motivations. I forget sometimes that I am in fact using the spamcopbl, and I realize that I am not getting nearly as much as I probably would be without it. Jonathan Duncan
  10. I have been reporting spam for a while now and I am just wondering if anyone know if what we are doing here is even helping? Are spammers being caught and stopped because of SpamCop? Is anyone getting less spam because of SpamCop? Are my money and time returning some value to the anti-spam community? Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
  11. I am having this problem too. Refreshing does not help. I am sure if I cleared out all my reports that would help but I would like all that backed up spam to be reported. Still, if I keep waiting it is all going to go bad. How do I contact the deputies? Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
  12. Thanks for the tips. I will check those options out. Jonathan
  13. Steve, thanks for your response. What you are saying makes sense. After my original post I did some research on PINE and found that it in fact has the ability to select multiple email messages and then forward them as "as a MIME digest" attachments or even bounce them to different email addresses in bulk. Having the option to forward many messages at once is ideal and it actually works. So that may be my solution. However, if someone knows of an easier way I would be interested to hear it. If someone familiar with "formail" and "procmail" could tell me if forwarding message that way would work, I would appreciate it. Otherwise, I think I will abandon the idea for the multiple forward schema. Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
  14. I use the email program PINE on a freeBSD Unix box. I had this idea that if I moved all spam that I get into a folder/file I could setup a cronjob to automatically forward spam in that file to spamcop using my special spamcop spam submission email address. Therefore, I made a folder in PINE called "spam" and moved tons of spam into it. Then I went to test the process to see if it would actually work with a file with 3 spam messages in it. From my command line I ran this: # cat spammailfile | formail -i "X-Anti-spam-Header: SpamCop" -s procmail In my procmailrc file I put this: # Reprocessed mail to be sent to SpamCop :0 * ^X-Anti-spam-Header: SpamCop !submit.NtNi9mungedlYhDQ[at]spam.spamcop.net I check my spamcop account and didn't see any link to process the spam, nor did I get a link in my email to process. I changed the procmailrc recipe to send to one of my junkmail email addresses and ran the command again and all three message got sent there just fine. However, I noticed that the headers had my information all over it now, like it came from me. I also noticed that the return-path is a different email address and it may be that mail submitted to my special spamcop submission address needs to be from my spamcop registered email address. QUESTIONS: 1) Is this an idea that I should continue to pursue, or is the fact that the headers being sent are now going to show that they came from me cause a problem for me, like showing me as the spammer? 2) If this is a bad idea, or approach to the idea, what other ways are there of automating the submission process so that I don't have to forward each and every spam email message to that address? Thanks, Jonathan Duncan
