  1. My [at]spamcop.net address is only guaranteed for a the remainder of my subscription and maybe then only at the whim of SpamCop. OK, got all that. During my subscription all mail forwarded to SpamCop by my many domains will be handled by the purported much better Cisco Reputation Systems and then FORWARDED to the single email address we provide. OK follow that so far. (I'm frequently wrong with generalizations but isn't the bulk of the worlds email traveling through many Cisco routers and yet all this spam gets through?) I have small office Cisco (Linksys) routers for wired and WiFi internet access. now Could they be configured to reach out to Cisco to run these Reputation filters? My question really is twofold. (maybe more) One: Can I just subscribe directly to the Cisco Reputation System if I quit worrying about "reporting" spam? I couldn't find a Cisco page to subscribe and filter all my mail through the Reputation System before forwarding it to an eMail address of my choice. QuestionOne continued: So does that mean that if I am able to keep paying SpamCop subscriptions somewhere then I would automatically be using the Cisco filter service after Sep30 and then remaining mail would be forwarded all nice and cleaned up? and Two: Where exactly will I renew SpamCop subscription if I wish to continue the "automatic reporting" process now that Cisco Reputation System filtering at SpamCop servers rather than my custom SpamCop settings will be used? If SpamCop business is in the process of randomly shutting down what confidence do I have that my annual subscription will actually last a year? Oh wait, one more, is there a page on SpamCop where we can see exactly what will remain after Sep30 so we can judge the capabilities and configuration that we can or have to use? SCdog
  2. I just received 3 email messages through SpamCop with the MyDoom virus. Previously SpamCop checked for viruses and blocked content and just sent me an email notifying me of the fact. What changed to allow the virus to slip through? I automatically forward all mail from my domain biz-builder.com hosted by DirectNIC to SpamCop for filtering and then I POP using Outlook. My domain has been spoofed in the infecteded email and one looks like a normal return mail with an attachment infected with MyDoom caught locally by NortonAV. What happened to the SpamCop AntiVirus checking?

  3. Right you are again Jeff and Stephen. I used the URL you gave in your response http://webmail.spamcop.net and was able to report and delete the out of sync mail. I am confused why using URL http://mailsc.spamcop.net/reportheld didn't allow the same fix. In both cases I end up at the same heldmail URL but reaching it from different starting points. Yours allows the fix mine did not. Not important for me now as your link worked just fine and problem solved. Maybe the explanation would be of some use to another member. Thanks again, DennisD
  4. Jeff, I normally use Outlook with a folder set to homepage: mailsc.spamcop.net/reportheld?action=heldlog]http://user%40spamcop.net:password[at]mailsc....?action=heldlog I have closed Outlook and logged in using IE and accessing the heldmail through my http://mailsc.spamcop.net/reportheld URL. Attempting to delete or remove these problem mails results in the same error message. I have logged in using different PCs over a few days and no can fix. When I had this problem before I believe that this process allowed me to remove the offending messages but not this time. I don't know how to get VER to refresh my list and get message IDs it can understand. Any other suggestions? DennisD
  5. I now have 3 spam in my mailsc.spamcop.net/reportheld mail folder that cannot be deleted nor reported. ERROR Shows: Message-ids have changed, cannot alter 12799 Message-ids have changed, cannot alter 12962 Message-ids have changed, cannot alter 13039 I had this happen once before and I was able to rectify but forgot the steps I used. Any ideas on how to eliminate these held mails? DennisD
  6. I was unable to delete the Message-ids have changed, cannot alter 11233 message when I connected to my Held Mail folder using an Outlook folder with the home page set to my Held Mail. All other messages were reported and deleted just fine. HOWEVER when I wend to the SC webmail URL and selected the offending message it deleted just fine. Don't know why I could delete using one view but not the other. Regardless the problem is solved. DennisD
  7. I have one message in my SC held mail that won't delete. The deletion list shows, "Message-ids have changed, cannot alter 11233". That is the message number. Can anyone delete it for me or tell me how to get rid of this pesky message. DennisD
  8. Just recently when I attempt to report spam from Outlook using SpamDeputy and my SpamCop authorization URL, for example; mailsc.spamcop.net/]http://MySpamcopName%40spamcop.net:MySpamc...sc.spamcop.net/ the reporting process fails. I just get the standard IE browser error "The page cannot be found" and an error popup from SpamDeputy "spam Deputy Error: Submission form not found" Petzl suggested that this is caused by a recent IE update. I guess that security is always a balance between ease of use and fear of use. >>A new security fix for IE has disabled this ability >>Link to "Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-004" http://tinyurl.com/yt4zg I checked and tried workaround to put mailsc.spamcop.net/]http://MySpamcopName%40spamcop.net:MySpamc...sc.spamcop.net/ in my "Trusted" zone but no help. I get same errors. Can anyone think of any other way that I can continue using Outlook and SpamDeputy to automatically report spam that slips through to SC? DennisD
