  1. I'm getting long responses to normal held mail reporting and then a server error. This is since this evening.
  2. I appreciate the quick attention to the post, but whatever the problem, it cleared up just recently without me doing anything. I was getting a server error (sorry didn't copy it) and a long response to that as well, and just thought I would report it since I haven't seen that in x years of service. Reporting via the webmail however worked. Who knows? I don't. thanks
  3. Oops. Silly of me, having had quite a few email exchanges with Bahamas Telecommunications, (also called batelco) I missed that altogether. So it would appear that Hussain is our man in this case. However as mentioned, I am sure I have seen some similar reports sent to Ali's or Mohammeds at Yahoo, but you say anyone can do that legally. Also thanks to Wazoo for that scarily detailed analysis. very interesting to a novice like me.
  4. I only have this from the spamcop report which I happened to glance at. spam report id 2756492780 sent to: hussain[at]batelco.com.bh May be saved for future reference: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1606922692zc...c85bb28e8f207az I picked up on it because of my earlier comments and that I have seen similar reporting addresses in the past for, for example, yahoo. In my experience large companies, particularly governments, don't give individuals' names for their contact addresses, particularly non matching ethnic ones. I don't know if this IP did point to Batelco, but if not it seems like a deliberate attempt to avoid spam reporting and presumably identifying, and a trivially simple one at that. I'm not an expert on this stuff, but if spammer ISPs can set up with fake abuse contact addresses, or none, why don't they just all do none? Would it not be practical to check for a domain match between the reporting address and the originating IP, and not bother to report if they don't match, just as one would do if there was no address?

    Fantastic spam run

    Moderator Edit: extracted from http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=8987 after seeing the conclusion that there was no relationship between this spam issue and the 'blackmail threats' I have received several hundred spam for "Free adult chat site now open", and they are still coming in every few seconds as I write this. They all report to APLUS.NET which seems to be a legit US ISP. On the basis of the above, I wonder if this could be related? Perhaps this is directed at APLUS.NET and I will just delete rather than continue to report and make it even worse for them.

    Fantastic spam run

    Seems you are more interested in finding reason to dismiss a post than address it. Yes, it is not the same in that it is not an inclusion of a web site in an email, but it would appear to be a malicious attack against an ISP which seem to be common with the thread and it uses my spamcop email address, unless it is something dumber, like a programming error. The spamcop tracing labels it as an open proxy, and a little further searching also finds a company called Abacus which is hosted by Aplus.net and that company also has a few google hits that cause some suspicion as to what business they are really in. However, in all my years with spamcop I have never seen a surge like this. It suddenly shut off somewhere around 3 am this morning, but by then I had received well over 500 identical spam pointing to a non existent web site. I had hoped someone else might also have received them or at least had more information to satisfy my curiosity. Instead I get a petty analysis as to why the question is technically not identical to the thread topic. Forget it.

    Fantastic spam run

    I was hoping something like this was recognized. Once, some time ago there was a wave of all the same spam, but this one is still going on hours later and must be in the many hundreds now. The website in the spam is invalid, so I guess it's an attack on aplus.net for whatever reason (or me at my spamcop email, but I doubt it). If nobody else is getting them, here are the headers.

    Spamcop address spam getting through

    I think I've been dense. I've been mentally confusing what I receive at my regular mail to that received at spamcop. I should not be receiving any email at spamcop FROM spamcop, right? If these spammers are so smart, why do they think it works to send multiple messages of the same type at the same time to the same recipient??? OK. I'll try that.
  9. I am getting regular spam from one particular spammer "VIAGRA r Official Site", which appears to be addressed to my spamcop email and is then forwarded to my other address. I get lots of spam addressed to me at Spamcop.net, but that is always caught and held in my held mail for reporting. This sender gets through always. Typically they send 5 or 6 spams at the same time, each one the same except they offer varying discounts in the 70's%. Why do these get through spamcop filtering?

  10. While I'm at it I would like to ask a similar question on another spammer. I make it another thread because it is a little different in another way. This one also gets through having been sent to my spamcop email (I think). I typically get 5 or 6 perday. All identical but sent from all over the world, with a couple of Egyptian ISPs being prominent. (Link.net, Tedata.com). Why do they get through spamcop? However it is different from other spam in that the website listed at the bottom is a disguised website not picked up by spam filtering since they write it as "cures for sure com", not curesforsure.com. I have looked at the site and it seems to be a porn site, with no contact information. It traces to Simplenet.com, an ISP in California. I have called them and they acknowledge the site as being part of one of their clients, but they do nothing to remove it. I have to think they are willing spammer partners. Does anyone else receive these and is there any other way to stick it to simplenet?

    Spamcop address spam getting through

    OK. I see, but if I remove spamcop from my whitelist, what will happen to legitimate mail? Will I then have to vet it in the held mail list? That's not much different from what I do now anyway. I take it there is no way to detect forged addresses like that? How do you know, for example, without verifying against everything that was legitimately sent?

    Spamcop address spam getting through

    Sorry, I don't understand, but the spam doesn't originate with spamcop. Surely it is the sender that needs to be whitelisted, or not, and spam is detected not only by the sender? I get plenty of other spam addressed to me at spamcop but 99+% of it is held correctly as spam. I removed the first few lines in the source identifying where spamcop forwarded this email to my other main account, so as to not leave that email address visible. I didn't think it would be relevant? This is what was removed, with the email it was forwarded to by spamcop blanked out.

  13. Not a big deal but it's the first I've noticed. I had an item in held mail that I wanted to look at, so I forwarded without whitelisting intending to report manually, but it never appeared in my mail. Any idea what happened or what I might have done by mistake?
  14. Problem solved. Thank you for all those who offered suggestions. In the end it was a problem with my ISP, as suggested even though the ISP (Road Runner) was initially adamant that they didn't filter anything by themselves. It turns out that there is an option, accessed under their webmail system that I have seldom used, where one can select automatic spam filtering. Somehow they turned it on a few months ago. I know I never did as I haven't accessed that since I was out of the country several years ago. Anyway, I finally got advice to check it. Turned the filter off and now forwarded email from spamcop does get through, even if it is spam.
  15. As I read this it says OUTGOING, not incoming.
  16. OK. I've double checked with Road Runner. They do NO spam filtering at any level. That is the customer's responsibility. I have my mail forwarded to Spamcop for filtering. One email address only. Then Spamcop forwards to another email that I use only for that purpose, to receive mail from spamcop. I also receive mail addressed directly to my spamcop address, forwarded to the above same email. (The bulk of the actual spam I get is addressed to my spamcop address, for what that is worth). That is the same system I've used for years and seems simple enough. This problem has started only recently and so far all I have is suggestions that my ISP is messing with my mail. I don't get it. What am I supposed to do other than look into other spam filtering options?
  17. Sorry that I seem to have missed a reply from DavidT earlier. I have my notifications set to automatic, but I have assumed that there were no replies since I received no notifications of these posts nor the last one from Wazoo and I did not check the forum. As I understand it my ISP is suspected of deleting mail to me that it considers to be spam. I have used Spamcop exclusively for this purpose and have no spam filtering at road runner that I am aware of, and I will be pretty pissed to find that they are deleting mail without notifying me. However I thought the problem had gone away a week ago because I was able to Forward, Do Not Whitelist a few times, then disappearance started again. Perhaps my notifications of new posts are also being deleted? I will ask my ISP what they do about spam that I don't know about, but as far as I am aware, I have not missed any other email.
  18. I'm baaaack. I appreciate the relies earlier, and while I may mess around with the overall configuration eventually, this one has worked for years and I don't lightly change what I don't have to. There might be an assumption here that that was a solution to the missing "forward - do not whitelist sender" email from held mail. This function stopped working for me relatively recently (but "forward - whitelist" does work) and I still have no idea why and would like to have it working again. If this forum is not the place to get that answer, please advise who I can contact at spamcop.
  19. OK. I'll look into it more. Thanks for the advice. I take it you don't know why I have the forwarding problem though? Somehow just changing a configuration generally doesn't seem like an explanation for that unless it is a known bug under certain configurations?
  20. OK. I got that and have changed the settings as advised. I don't recall seeing your previous suggestion, probably because I didn't see a notification for the same reasons I keep asking the same question. However I still haven't seen a reason why "Forward - Do not whitelist" doesn't work for me anymore. I have used spamcop for years and it has always worked until recently. DavidT suggests changing the configuration, although I thought I had the recommended one. Namely forward to spamcop for filtering first. Perhaps there is a better way, but on the other hand I don't like to fiddle with configurations when something works and this has always worked, except now for this one annoyance that allows spam to get away. Note that I have forwarded some mail under "forward AND whitelist" and they have arrived. Are you saying that IS the cause of the problem (missing Forward- do not whitelist)? It hasn't been a problem until recently. I suppose I could POP direct from spamcop, but I haven't had a reason to change anything for years, and I do have some other email addresses for internal use that I don't bother to send to spamcop (one of which spamcop send to me at). Seem it would just complicate the configuration to add more than one POP server to get mail from.
  21. I have my main email forwarded to spamcop, which then either holds or forwards to another email address which is the one my PC reads. I haven't changed anything in a year or two, which is why I can't remember many things. In any case the dsbl list issue seems to have gone away for now, but "forward do not whitelist sender" still functions as "delete". In other words, it is never forwarded. Again, I haven't changed anything and this started only recently. I just tried again a few minutes ago with two held spam messages. They disappeared. Also, I notice that while I have selected "receive email notification of replies", I have not seen notification of the above response to me. As far as I am aware my ISP is doing nothing new. It's Road Runner. That makes sense, but is that likely to happen with a major ISP like Road Runner? I admit I don't know much about how these lists differ or how they are maintained, or by who.
  22. Sorry to not reply earlier, but I've been travelling. However the issue with dsbl.org holding mail seems to have gone away. I haven't had that much real mail, but nothing more has been held and I've changed nothing. However, "forward. Do NOT whitelist sender" still does not work. If I want to forward a suspected spam to look at it never arrives in my forwarded mail. I have not knowingly changed anything.
  23. I would appreciate advise on how to remove list.dsbl.org from my email filtering. I seem to recall doing this a couple of years ago, but I've just spent 30 minutes trying to find it somewhere in the spamcop configuration, without success. I don't know why it has suddenly become active this past week, but it is now holding all legitimate mail that hasn't been specifically whitelisted. Please advise how to remove it. Thanks
  24. The above list should be list.dsbl.org. I haven't had any trouble with this in the past. Now suddenly it is holding some mail. Today I received two emails from an organization about a renewal. The first one came through normally, but the second from a different user, but same address otherwise, was held. Why is this happening suddenly?
  25. Happened again. Same thing and this time I am POSITIVE I selected Forward do not whitelist, as opposed to Delete. Just after 8:30 EST. 7/18/07 I have recently used Forward and Whitelist without problems. However the DNSorbs (or whatever it's called) list seems to have started holding some mail that was previously OK or whitelisted. A couple of weeks ago I was using the PC and spamcop via a different ISP. Could that have any relevance?
