  1. It's working again now. Don't know why it wasn't before.
  2. For the last month or so I've been running getting my mail through spamcop using Outlook 2002 with the following settings: (POP3) pop.spamcop.net port 995 SSL Security ON (SMTP) smtp.cesmail.net port 587 SSL Security ON This has been working great - until today. Now I am getting the following error: Task 'SpamCop - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC7D) : 'Your outgoing (SMTP) server does not support SSL-secured connections. If SSL-secured connections have worked in the past, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). I tried again and got this error: Task 'SpamCop - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x80004005) : 'The operation failed.' Both errors occurred at 5:15-5:18 PM Eastern USA Time, 01/28/2007.

Ok, so what I'm doing is helping add spam material to the database and block spammers is what I get out of this... cool, I'll continue.
  4. Hello. I've been using Spamcop webmail now for about 6 months. I use SpamCop's SMTP and POP3 servers to send and receive mail to my email client (MS Outlook 2002). This is a general question about use and whether or not what I'm doing is helping out anybody at all. Here's how I use Spamcop... 1. I log in via webmail. Anything that is in my INBOX that is spam I mark and use the "Report as spam" link. Then these disappear. 2. I pull all remaining legitimate mail to my inbox in Outlook via pop3 (and send out any pending emails in outlook via SMTP) 3. A few times a day I will go into my "held mail" area of Spamcop. I scan it for anything that is legitimate that might have been accidentally blocked. After releasing anything that was legitimate, I mark the whole mess and use the "Report as spam" link and the whole thing gets sent out to reporting. I get anywhere from 50 to several hundred spam mails in my "Held Mail" area every day. I am wondering if by going in and doing the (minimal work) of marking and reporting spam in both my inbox and held mail areas in spamcop webmail is doing anyone any good. I have never used the more complex "Report spam" form/link - I only mark messages and use the "Report as spam" link. I have reporting turned off so I never see any feedback in email but I can view my reports. Is what I'm doing valid? Or am I just wasting my time by marking spam and reporting it? How do I know if some spammer's account got canned because of it, meaning I actually did some good? Thanks in advance for the advice.
  5. I'm using Outlook 2002, port 587 with the SSL box ON, and I'm able to send messages perfectly - which is great because I'm in a hotel! Thank you!!
