  1. Hi, due to the recent downtime, I have decided that I want to switch mail services. You all know that doing so requires a long adjustment time, in which you find out all the places where you registered with your e-mail address and have them change it. I've been a member for years and this was my primary mail address. The problem is that my cesmail account is due to expire any day now. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to mail me the renewal mail and it never arrived because of the downtime, as my last payment was March 24th, 2013. So am I forced to pay 30 dollars for a service I no longer wish to continue, just because of the adjustment issue above? Is there another option, such as a low-cost forwarding-only service? Any other options that you can think of? Despite the well-known corporate separation between cesmail and spamcop, when I go to cesmail.net all I get is the spamcop service, and I see no offers to services other than the usual spamcop account.
  2. I wouldn't be in a hurry to switch to Google specifically (bye bye privacy) but I'm also considering switching to a different permanent provider. One thing that has been bugging me for ages is that there are services which do not like the "spamcop.net" address, e.g. LinkedIn, where I had to give up and register with one of my alternative e-mails accounts. These outages right now may as well be the last straw. One should note, though, that the culprit is CESmail, not Spamcop.
  3. Hi. I have a problem receiving LinkedIn confirmation mails to my spamcop mailbox. LinkedIn is saying that my emails are bounced. As far as I understand, mail servers are not handled by spamcop itself but by a third party. Whom am I supposed to contact to check this problem?
  4. Thanks, but wouldn't that just report it to the masters of the domains where the message originated? That's fine, because they should plug any holes in their systems, but spamcop should also be aware of it and inform users that they should ignore these and watch out for people who fell for it and now have compromised accounts. Shouldn't it?
  5. Hi guys. I'm not sure where to post this and how to report this properly. There seems to be a phishing attempt directed at spamcop mail users. I received the following message this morning. And since it asked me to give my user and password in a reply mail, it caused all my alarms to go off. Of course I have the full mail and headers (and it doesn't originate from inside the cesmail domain). What should I do about it? - - - From: helpdesk[at]spamcop.net Subject: Dear mail.spamcop.net Email Account User, Date: 23:33:00 GMT+02:00 14 פברו×ר 2010 Reply-To: technsupport[at]mcom.com Dear mail.spamcop.net Email Account User, We wrote to you on 14th February 2010 advising that you change the password on your account in order to prevent any unauthorized account access following the network instruction we previously communicated. all Mailhub systems will undergo regularly scheduled maintenance.

  6. Thanks, michaelanglo and StevenUnderwood. So the personal whitelist is also relevant for the graylist. I'll do what you two suggested. If I start receiving a lot of spam because of that, I'll reconsider. Lking - thank you. I don't actually use RSS in my day-to-day work so I'm not sure how this will work out. If their RSS is as "good" as their web interfaces (which don't support Unicode), then it wouldn't be much good...
  7. Hi all. I have turned on graylisting in my account after being flooded with more spams than I can sanely report in a day. I am a member (and moderator) of two Yahoo Groups. Now, there is a strange thing about graylisting and Yahoo Groups messages. The graylisting doesn't go by the "From" header of the mail. Instead, it goes by the "Return-Path" header (plus IP). For Yahoo Groups messages, this header looks like this: Return-Path: <sentto-5325055-5265-1243710161-herouth=spamcop.net[at]returns.groups.yahoo.com> And the string of digits and dashes in the middle there is apparently unique for every message. This means that the graylist delays each and every Yahoo Groups message sent to me. Eventually, of course, I get the messages, but this is rather annoying. Does anybody know of a way to work around this? I don't seem to have access to the "allowed" section of the graylist - I can allow blocked originators, but I can't see what's allowed. And even if I had access - I'd need the ability to put wildcards in allowed originators. Or am I mistaken and the Allowed list is the normal spamcop whilelist? I believe the whitelist is based on the "From" header, but I may be mistaken. Anyway, it doesn't allow wildcards, either.
  8. One other issue I noted: one of the mails I received had a mailto link in it. These are replaced by a compose command to the web mail, naturally. However, when I clicked it, all I got was a blank page.
  9. Hi there. I've been testing it for a bit, and I find two annoying things: 1. It logs me out much oftener than it does in the stable version. I mean, after a few minutes of inactivity. Perhaps the cookies is too short, or the garbage collection rate is too high. 2. In the login screen, it keeps setting the default language to my local language. Now, this may be fine for most, but I prefer the English menus for various reasons. So I have to keep setting it back to English every time. I don't want to set the browser language to something else, because I need the local language for other applications. In short - can it remember which language I selected last time, and keep that language as the default? Oh yes, and the 'report spam' button is absolutely essential. I get lots of spam in accounts that are not directed to my spamcop account.
