    SPAMCOP BREACH? Attn: Admin

    Microsoft Edge notified me on login to my Spamcop account that my Spamcop account and password had been exposed in a trove and recommended changing passwords (which I did). Do Spamcop admins have any comment?

    More and more DEVNULL reports

    I have a friend who's fairly well respected within Salesforce.com. I shot him a sample of the emails (consistently from The Economist who refuses to honor opt-out requests). I can block them easily but When I have extra time, I prefer to work on the root of the problem.

    Eonix.net helping spammers?

    Eonix, Layerhost and it's related businesses have been the third biggest sources of spam on my hosted domains. #1 with a bullet is Google. #2 is AWS. Reporting to AWS is next to useless. I noted from another post that Google has stopped accepting SpamCop reports. I'll have to see if that's the case on my end.
  4. It seems I have been seeing more SpamCop reports going to devnull lately. For example, I am getting spam via salesforce.com and those ALL go to devnull. Is this because salesforce.com is not acting? Do they have a behind the scenes deal with CISCO (SpamCop)? Salesforce does have a working abuse@salesforce.com address so it can't be lack of that. Any thoughts?
  5. Agreed. Egregious and embarrassing failure.

    "Hotmail" spam reporting stopped?

    Wouldn't you be better off just using the Hotmail spam flagging feature? It reports, blocks and is probably a more direct and successful route than going through SpamCop.

    WARNING: NECRO POST REVIVAL Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water, the ServerHub spam support machine has cranked back up again. I continue to report them via SpamCop (some are such bad spam that the reports get flagged as outgoing spam by my mail provider). They continue to auto-reply with BS that makes it sound like they are doing something. But they aren't. Example: SpamCop.net
  8. I am getting this error message when the message being reported is in fact dated today 12/4 and first appeared on my server today. See: SpamCop.net for report.

    Russian spam can't be reported

    For some reason, I could not change my mailhosts to accommodate my provider. A SpamCop admin gave me an exemption which worked for a bit but now I'm faced with a new problem. Again, I think it's probably due to the number of different servers our webhost uses. "Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source" yet reading the headers, it seems to come from outlook.com (aka Microsoft / hotmail /365)/) I noticed that they frogged my domain (geldner.com). https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6643253727zd5ae1bdabed33c527117d9381682d770z
  10. Somehow, this particular type of spam seems to confound Spamcop. I get a mailhost configuration problem when reporting via email. Reconfiguring my mailhosts does nothing to improve this. This spam seems pretty sophisticated in that it shows up with full pictures on my phone yet looks like weird text in Outlook preview (images disabled). The source IP appears to be: which goes back to a Russian provider. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6640595520za6b456852b82bb903ea1937266b051bbz
  11. You'll note I've already tried reporting via Gmail and they are blocking perceived spam content (which is what a SpamCop report often looks like). My problem is not that my email accounts don't work for regular mail, they're fine. It's just that I can't use any of them now for reporting spam to SpamCop.
  12. I use three mail services. Gmail, Roadrunner and my self-hosted accounts for our domain, geldner.com, at Stablehost. Effectively now, none of them are allowing email submissions to my submit @ spamcop address. They either get dumped without response (Roadrunner) or not sent due to spam content at Gmail and Stablehost. Gmail was getting through but now they've tightened things up. Stablehost says they have no good way of whitelisting spamcop for outbound mail. This will effectively end my Spamcop reporting unless I can find a solution. No I am NOT going to cut & paste spam emails. I MIGHT be able to host a mail exchanger on my home computer (Spectrum cable internet) with Dynamic DNS but I'm not sure how that would work. Any suggestions before I pull the plug on reporting?

    Report doesn't complete - can't submit

    Parser still not working. Alibaba originated spam doesn't parse. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6436471089z9ccd10bfd074e56c63131211326597ccz

    Report doesn't complete - can't submit

    Is it because the spammers have figured out a way to foul up the Spamcop parser deliberately? Since about 1 in 5 of my reports are hitting this parsing failure, I am increasingly disinclined to report spam. It would be good to know if Cisco / Spamcop intend to fix it or if this is whole project is simply on life support.
  15. SPAMCOP report results I have tried both manually processing this email AND as an emailed submission via my account. SpamCop chokes on both.
