Been There (4/6)



  1. Thanks David, I am going to see if they respond to my request to have it turned back on, otherwise I will simply stop using my SpamCop account.
  2. nei1_j I regret to read of your unhappy experience. The FAQ in the forum can be difficult to navigate which is why the SpamCop Wiki was created. The link is SpamCop Wiki Home Page You will find links on the top of that page as well as every other page to a Category Listing, Page Index, there is also a glossary. The terms are linked back and forth throughout the wiki. Here is the link to a definition of Spamvertized URL I believe you will find the Wiki much easier to navigate than the forum FAQ
  3. One other note: SpamCop will not block any email unless someone in the mail stream is using the SpamCop Blocking List, even then the recommendation from SpamCop is not to totally block the messages but rather to flag them as spam or potential spam. Some mailserver do use the SCBL to totally block mail for the listed IP address. The problem is that there maybe a lot of valid message being process that would never be delivered. If you simply want to keep them out of your inbox, simply set a filter on your mail client to filter the specific domains that you are having an issue with
  4. If he is using a mail server that sends a very small amount of spam, then his spam would be a small percentage of the mail processed by that server Unfortunately you posted your reporting ID for that email. No one here is able to open that. You need to post the Tracking URL then we can do a bit more research on the subject See the following entry for more information: TrackingURL
  5. The dictionary predates the Wiki and was just one more of the tools Wazoo came up with to improve on the forum. I imported the majority of the information directly from the Forum Glossary. Then Wazoo came up with the Wiki and I copied the entries once more to the Wiki. For a while I was maintaining all 3 glossaries, but eventually gave up on the dictionary finding the Wiki to me a much better system for information. Here is copy of Wazoo's original post in the MemberP forum announcing the dictionary
  6. Thanks Steve for fixing this. Suprisingly it was already correct in the Wiki version of the Glossary, as most of the entries were copied and pasted from the forum or the Dictionary to the Wiki. I see that it needs to be corrected in the SpamCop Dictionary as well, but since I no longer remember how to log into the dictionary to edit it it will have to stay that way.
  7. Thanks from bringing up this problem. The last time I edited the Wikipedia SpamCop entry was back in July 2007, I was supprised it had been that long ago. I will try to find some time to work on it. You have mentioned a lot of good points that need to be worked into the article.
  8. Well unfortunately there are still a lot of users out there that continue to use these services as their primary email address. In my case 2 of the 5 members of our homeowners association are using hotmail address. It makes it very difficult to work around it especially with my android phone. I am getting very closes to closing my spamcop account as Earthlink's filtering has improved greatly, so much so that the vast majority of my spam comes from my spamcop address that I never give out to anyone. The only advantages left for me are: 1) the "nearly unlimited" storage space you get with no additional cost 2) the fact that using the SMPT service there is no limit to the size of the files that can be sent, but on the other hand, the majority of users do have limits on the file size that they can receive.
  9. I added the information to the forum howto file entry #24831 which is also linked to from the wiki
  10. One thing is see missing here is your email server. Are you using your own email server or one belonging to someone else like your ISP Also if you are using your own email server, who else has access to it? If it is not properly protected you may find some spammer using it which then creates problems for you when your server gets blocked. Though it is a very good idea to include an opt-out link, you should remember that it is generally recommended to NEVER use an "opt-out link" to try to get off a spam email list. The only people that are likely to use the opt-out link are your friends who know who you are but would rather not receive email from you. The following may or may not apply to your situation but should be considered anyway
  11. There were actually 2 separate issues raised here. Steve answered the 1st which was the [at] being replaced with at. - This is simply a function of this forum's setup The second issue was the report address itself. I have sent an email to Don to look into this issue. As stated, this is without question not the address of "Administrator of network where email originates"
  12. Seems like an error in the SpamCop database. Will send an email to Don and see if he can fix the problem.
  13. If you are talking about a single user account or multiple single user accounts, follow Don's suggestion above, but if you are talking about a true "corporate" account with 2-500 employees then see the wiki entry at: http://forum.spamcop.net/scwik/SpamCopMailSmallBusiness
  14. see http://forum.spamcop.net/scwik/SpamCopPassWordProblems
  15. Don I think you may have read this thread differently. I believe the request is for sending source information, not who filed the spamcop complaint I believe Peter is in the middle between his IP host and Peter's user who sent the mail Peter, did I describe the situation correctly? then Don should be able to help you. Or are you looking for info on who the email was sent to? in which case you are out of luck
