  1. OK the latest Free edition of ZoneAlarm has the yEnc problem fixed! Make sure your computer is secure
  2. You should try to have your email forwarded to your SpamCop email account this is far superior/faster then there are no limits (the limits apply to POP'ing only) You are then best to POP direct from SpamCop's servers
  3. While MailWasher is a fine program. For its "Pro" price one can get a FULL SpamCop email address and get FULL POWER & VERY accurate spam filtering backed up by SpamCop Email & VER® (Very Easy Reporting) from the fastest mail servers on this planet. SpamCop will reliably retrieve email from as many addresses as you have and only allow legitimate email to your inbox (at least this is my and most's case) YES there is much much more! Aside from putting money SpamCops way you get every email virus filtered and can use without fear your email address. Sign up and effectively immunise yourself against Spammers (spammers only end up having email spam immediately bitbinned as they try) Spammers effectively just end up in a sin bin (attack being the best defence) to be reported & blocked . That’s while they try to send spam, not days later
  4. Bonded Sender The Original and the Best I would say this is important if it is not encouraged expect Bandwidth for "Very Easy Reporting" or VER to keep slowing down further and further Support from US SpamCop users would add momentum to the "profit line" of SpamCop's very dedicated users This whitelist will override all other selected blacklists (of course it is up to you/us whether you/we select it) I feel it is important that "we" endorse SpamCop's financial backers
  5. I would like a "TAB" added to "VER" for the "SpamCop BlockList" or SCBL Other than that the new look is a plus
  6. I cannot see why the full block is not downloaded and "hardwired"? Save banwidth connect problems And good luck to George Bush from OZ
  7. is another of very many gettiing past brazil (also china)? Some time ago JT was claiming he would create his own list? Suggest he adds entire block
  8. The best approach for firewalls is to have both hardware and software protection installed ZoneAlarm so far has not had it's security bypassed from outside of one's windows PC (It can however be secretly turned off by programs installed on/to your computer) Most windows software does not ever completely uninstall requiring one to regularly reformat and reinstall Windows to recover disk space
  9. This is not a/your NewsReader problem If you decide to disable ZoneAlarm install another product (such as) or switch to their 15 day free trail of their "PRO" version which is not affected (Zone Alarm are working on problem) Hardware types being the better choice over software ones ZoneAlarm is a very effective Software choice read about it here
  10. Someone has woken up it is now back to Normal. Thank you (I were talking of "WebMail" inbox moving it to my held/VER folder so I can veiw it in text format)
  11. I like to move suspicious mail there to open it in text format. The only option now is to guess it and report as spam or delete it EOM
  12. Again no trouble with every other place I save cookies Just here? OK figured it out I were using cessmail forum where the address changed to http://forum.spamcop.net Using this address cookies work fine
  13. !'m trying out Historykill (shareware) again works for every other site I save cookies on except this one I am now trying out 12-ghosts (free for personal and with a great Pop-Up killer just hold shift or "Ctrl" to bypass)and same finding SpamCop forum IMO has a problem? It seems deleting original cookie is not good I use a Password saver program (free for 21 passwords) but getting lazy in extra mouse moves (I only use 7 differnt passwords of varying security levels eg maximum is around 307 years to crack)
  14. I save cookies deleting the ones I do not want This works with "New York Times" bigCharts.com & other discusion web type boards but not SpamCop When first signing up this worked but not after deleting original cookie Again no trouble with every other place I save gookies Just here?
  15. You possibly need to log into SpamCop and set up your mailhosts for reporting (this is a new addition to SpamCop to stop spammers forging headers) For the $30 a year you are best to get a SpamCop email account (much superior to mailwasher)
  16. You can report bounces without using spamcop? You can use spamcop to Identify the source of IP that is using your email address but you are not allowed to report this/bounces through SpamCop
  17. Cannot log into IMAP mailserver as petzl[at]spamcop.net Can someone reconnect the network pls
  18. Sample of forged bounce this was not bounced to my email address (To dowlnload rightclick and save to folder. File name is "MSN ServerMessage Delivery Failure.eml" ) :angry: To view you will need to "Right Click" mouse save as file and use Outlook Express to view drugs spam) spamcop reporting diagnoses this as a bounce (it was blocked by SCBL) This email is as I saved it it is in HTML (has been scanned by Mail server and Norton latest definitions) So it shows that SpamCop is doing some good and pays to report this spammer even if it is a personal report
  19. justbrilliant Your windows computer is secure right? My signature points to free resources for you to make it so Ad-Aware is also good for checking on spyware suggest one use both (get latest definitions) IF bigpond have had port 25 blocked, then they have had no affect? Bigpond have a notoriety of being stupid and expensive
  20. when this happens to me I just open the spam and get the REAL spam URL link and add its abuse addresses to the report no big deal? I have latest Virus scanner and a (software) firewall also scan for spybots wih Ad-aware and "Search & destroy"
  21. I have found Norton often jams "POP" after doing its "live update" and a reboot is reqired Are you using Norton/symantec?
  22. Amazing how comcast survive? Bigpond are noted as incompetent blocking port 25 is a smart move
  23. Bigpond block port 25 BigPond’s New Anti-spam Measures pwellens Posted: Apr 28 2004, 10:21 PM The fact is Bigpond have had port 25 blocked since 17th of April 2004 for all its users. Email now has to be posted through mail.bigpond.com So keep up the good work spamcop (again innocent)
  24. Start here to check your setup < http://mail.spamcop.net/tips.php> and here <http://mail.spamcop.net/setup/setup.php> After doing that consider this Suggested setup for a start (1) Log in using your FULL spamcop email address here <http://webmail.spamcop.net/horde/imp> (2) click "Options" at top of page (3) in box "Mail Management" click "SpamCop Tools" (4) click "Select your email filtering blacklists." (5) uncheck box "Block All " and check all the boxes in box "DNS Blacklist" and click "Blue Button" "Modify" underneath I find that blacklist "dnsbl.sorbs.net" is for me agressive. You may uncheck any blacklist that is causing to many false positives (the Whitelist overides these blacklists. But will not override Virus detection Virus are deleted. You can turn notification of this off) (6) have your provider forward your email to your spamcop address (7) Setup your email client to collect (POP3) your email from spamcop. In the POP3 box of your email client remove the one you have there and replace with "pop.spamcop.net" (7a)You NOW need to whitelist your providers email servers for reporting spam (include your SpamCop email address). To do this go here and follow instructions (you logon with full email address and password) <http://mailsc.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=mhedit> If you have multiple email addresses you just need to submit one email for that domain (this is done to get around spammers forging headers) (7b) If you use IMAP to access your email, please use the following names: spamcop.net customers: imap.spamcop.net You can disable "auto polling". If you do not a bell will ring every time a message hits your "held folder" (8) Success you should now have all mail caught by filters in your held folder with only legitimate email in your inbox (9)For logging into held folder <http://mailsc.spamcop.net/reportheld?action=heldlog> This will allow you to forward and whitelist innocents and Toast the guilty at a simple click of the mouse button I would suggest you use password software for bettter security for logging in http://www.password-depot.com/download.htm This is basically freeware for 20 passwords/URLs It also works flawlessly from a USB drive (good for shared computers) Lockable by two wo completly different encryption methods (Blowfish AND Rjindael) You then disable your personal computer to remember passwords and login (always uncheck this option on shared computers) ****************** To contact SpamCop go here <http://mail.spamcop.net/> <http://mail.spamcop.net/contact.php> ***************************
