  1. That happened to me and it looks like I caused it by stepping on the cookie. I was logged into webmail under one user account, then (using another tab in FireFox) went to SC reporting and (being feeble minded) logged in using a different username....which seems to have overwritten the cookie. It was after this I began getting the "Sorry no UserID" message. I will try to duplicate it, checking cookies before and after each action. Of course Paul said nothing about two accounts, but could something be altering the SC cookie?" (I know, I don't need two accounts, but my company decided to pay for an account and insisted on a separate one)
  2. How do the spammers fake out SpamCop with their false timestamps? I reported spam that could not have been in my inbox/held mail more than an hour and SC responded "this message is over 24 hours old". Also, some spam finds its' way to Inbox position 1 because the spammer claimed to have sent it in 2003. (Inbox is set to order by date/time received) Surely SC knows when it pulled the messages off my POP server?
  3. I've been with SpamCop a couple of years and recently was blocked from reporting spam because the system was reporting my company's servers. It got complicated because Anteon, my original employer recently was bought out by General Dynamics. My mail now goes to myaddress <at>gdit.com where it is forwarded to myoldaddress<at>anteon.com and then to spamcop. I requested a waiver, which will probably fix that, but I noticed something odd about the test mail response. When I captured test mail using Message Source the first time, the response was that there was an unnecessary line break (see below), I took that out and now get "Host ns-util1.anteon.com (checking ip) IP not found ; ns-util1.anteon.com discarded as fake." (As well as traversing more than one domain) I noticed that the list of IP addresses was also screwy, see the part right after the local test IP, and the two octets just before the last IP. There are 5 odd octets in there, no wonder the robot got confused. I tried replying using IE and Firefox, both came up with the scrambled IP list. As I said, the waiver will probably fix me up but I thought it worthwhile to point out this strange response. I have the URL from the test mail message, I'm going to send it to deputies<at>... but also offer it here to see if anyone has any useful comments. X-SpamCop-Checked: 18.120
  4. We need to hurt the people who are paying the spammers, hurt their bank account. I'm sure everyone savvy enough to use Spamcop follows the rule that goes, "Never, NEVER buy from spam!" Towards that end, I would want to avoid spam-paying e-tailers even if Jeeves/Google/Yahoo turns up their name in a legitimate search for a product. I would like to get a list of the sites Spamcop turns up when preparing reports, URLs or IP addresses, I will whois them. Reading the reports, it is not clear whether the report is going to the administrator of an open relay, the spammer's ISP, etc. I know there are plenty of phony names and thousands of redirects, but I would happily spend the time to research the top 50 spammers.
