    Google refuses reports now?

    https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6701008650z8443d041021da58dc93c7fd8f5f68e1az Agreed. Just happened today.

    Google refuses reports now?

    https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6700686795z8eefb6baa04238df0bcefe8cf0f71e01z I was wondering about this too, for many months I've had endless "I've invited you to fill out this form" spam and it all originated from google. Been reporting them using Spamcop dutifully and they were going to (IIRC) network-abuse@google.com. But this week, well see above. Even if a report email isn't sent does the IP address still find its way into Spamcop's blacklist? One would think google would *want* to not allow spam to originate from their servers.
  3. I included the 1st line of the body in the original submission. The $null causes the parser to gobble up the blank line separating the headers from the body and incorporate part of the body into the Message-ID: value. If you remove just the $null from the aforementioned header and resubmit it gets parsed correctly. This is the reason I offered to post the original message instead of the tracking URL. If doing that will be helpful, let me know. Thanks, Paul
  4. the last header is as mentioned, then there's a blank line, and the first line of text from the message reads: Do you need an Investor?

  6. Lately I've been getting spam where the last line of the header reads: Message-ID: $null when reporting this using the web form it causes the parser to somehow misinterpret the end of the headers and beginning of the body text. As a workaround I just remove the $null portion and post the report. I've kept an example that fails, so if need be I can post the headers for inspection. Thanks, Paul

When submitted (above link) it aborts parsing the header. When I changed that Received: line to 'cube.cube.home' it parses the header just fine. There must be a bug in the parsing code that causes it to sh** the bed on bad hostnames.

    Reporting-parsing problems?

    Can't send report: smtpEnvelope (s[at]x.x, abuse[at]x.x): smtpTo rcpt to:abuse[at]x.x (550 #5.7.1 Your access to submit messages to this e-mail system has been rejected. ) This morning I submitted a few and everything seemed fine. Today I'm getting these errors on every submission.

    Reporting-parsing problems?

    I'm just now experiencing the same thing. This morning everything was working fine. I think we should start a new thread in this forum, though.

    Reporting problems today?

    I too have been receiving similar responses and experiencing slowness for a few days. Most times the response is something like this: Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.37fe2fd0.1341589697.36623e9e Strangely enough, this outage has seemed to coincide with a marked increase in spam coming to me from many sources, mostly yahoo! and google (gmail). Interesting? Yes. Coincidence? Who knows..... Regards, Paul
  11. Hi Andrew - yes, i submit via email then use the HTML form to submit. Hi Don - it happened over the weekend, while I was working from home using satellite internet. This morning, I used the HTML form w/o any problems after I came into work. Therefore, it may have been my connection at home. Regards, Paul
  12. For the past couple of days I've been unable to report any spam submitted via email. After clicking the "Report spam" button on the member's page, the connection times out and a "Bad Response From Server" message appears. The only thing I can do is to remove all unreported spam, which obviously I don't want to do. I'd also add that the HTML form for submitting spam seems to be working fine, it's just the spam that's submitted via email that's having problems. Regards, Paul
  13. I just tried again and it's letting me log in, but when I click on 'Report Now' I'm getting just an empty page w/ a Spamcop header.
  14. I was just about to post the same thing, the "members" reporting page just keeps popping up the basic authentication box asking for my username and password.

    hi farelf - i'm not, my mail server is connected directly to the net. i check my server every morning and consequently have a close eye on what's going on. when i notice a marked increase like i have something must be up. i just wanted to know if any other admins out there were noticing it too. regards, paul
