  1. again it was 9:26am GMT on a Monday and I get the following message: spam originated from, I see that IP is not currently in the Spamcop DNSBL. Has it ever been and did it leave the DNSBL over the weekend...
  2. when I visit: www.spamcop.net I see "Welcome, myspamreportingname. You have 15.4M bytes available. Your average reporting time is: 0 hours; Great! " I think the fuel is for (perhaps not only used for) making manual spam reporting quicker (and to show support for spamcop)? As a spam reporter & DNSBL user, I am left wondering where the 'investment' in feature development is occuring?
  3. that is a rather pessimistic view.
  4. Thanks Farelf, using that web archive facility: June-2010 to June 2011 Average spam: 28.4 Max spam: 59.9 Total spam: 895,748,034 June-2011 to June 2012 Average spam: 10.0 Max spam: 17.2 Total spam: 316,755,235 comparison between the above 365 day periods: Average spam: 64.8 % reduction Max spam: 71.3 % reduction Total spam: 64.6 % reduction.
  5. if you used the address on facebook etc, then on that site you can resolve email address to user by simply searching via email address.
  6. I wonder if a simple forum poll would gauge Spamcop user's opinions on the 48hour limit if it was appropriately constructed. Those of you who associate the request with 'surges over the weekend' or 'time zones' or similar are off the mark and have unfortunately not found extra reasoning for the proposed change. I simply want to report spam that I receive(at work), and to that end the (arbitrary) 48hours limit is simply inadequate (as detailed with the weekend example in the first post). Currently the Spamcop reporter cannot/will not wait mere seconds to resolve found domains in the body properly or process the email to properly extract links etc in a madcap rush to report to the ISP the existence of each spam item. (http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=12209). In the last 365days the average was 10 emails per second.
  7. pretty sure 316 million is less that on previous periods? http://www.spamcop.net/spamgraph.shtml?spamyear
  8. tried to report a spam when it was Mon, 23 Apr 2012 09:25 +0100 but got the following message: I guess ideally it should allow from Friday close of business, i.e. 5pm when reporting on Monday morning?
  9. define slow? and why the madcap need to report so instantly?
  10. I was surprised to see that the manual submission webform now takes 73 seconds to complete, (I hardly ever use the web interface for submission), I thought it worth mentioning since I could not find a mention thus far. It seems like a fairly over the top adjustment, surely the process of manually submitting spam items individually via a webform is grueling enough of an undertaking? Merged with existing topic
  11. Hi, we have dnsbl blocking spam to legitimate addresses on our domain and a large collection of addresses that spammers have concocted which we feed directly to spamcop. That being said just recently over the last 7 days a number (15 which is quite alot really) of new dud addresses have emerged - mainly they are real addresses on our domain but with words, file name, or numbers added to the start of first part of the address. Any one else noticed an upturn in new bogus addresses recently? we have enough spam traps (215+) as it is and submit ~200 to ~800 spam a day to Spamcop.. Nov 3 252 Nov 2 465 Nov 1 538 Oct 31 438 Oct 30 508 Oct 29 529 Oct 28 622 Oct 27 518 Oct 26 457 Oct 25 615 Oct 24 435 Oct 23 396 Oct 22 634 Oct 21 757 Oct 20 582 . . Oct 10 190 Oct 9 391 Oct 8 479 just wondering if some new list of addresses has been generated and sold/used Thanks
  12. yes, thanks, that first one covers the questions in some detail. (though I noticed on the few ips I looked into that only four spam reports were seemingly needed for a listing). It seems to mention 24hours as the listing duration, but I am guessing that if the ip continues to spam, it will get a different treatment, ie a 24hour rolling block after the last spam report received? It is a pity that URLs such as http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blcheck&...p= do not show any information if the ip is not listed. For a listed ip the amount of information shown is voluminous in comparison (compared to " not listed in bl.spamcop.net" it would be hard not to be), much of which is not strictly only pertinent to the current listing.
  13. Hi, would be very useful to see when the ip was listed into the blacklist. Thanks. EG: Got an email from at Thu, 2 Sep 2010 16:27:10 +0100 (UK time), and I wanted to see if the ip was listed in SpamcopBL via this url: http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblo... which says now at Fri, 3 Sep 2010 09:20:10 +0100 (UK Time) : "will be delisted automatically in approximately 7 hours" No hint as to whether there is a normal listing duration or what that is, or whether there are variable listing durations, or if the continuation to listing durations is of a set period....all a bit 'mysterious'.
