  1. This is to help innocent people realise how poor Google GMAIL (Free) filters are. The following tests recorded massive failures: 1. From field - if you put in any wildcards such as the following the filter will start capturing false positives and you will end up filtering innocent emails from:(*@*.*.ar) will filter addresses such as name@ar.sub.domain Therefore job sites use long links and if they have an ar as in this scenario in any part of the domain it will be filtered even though the filter is specific. The spammers do this to stuff your filters up. They study what is put into AbuseIPDB and SPAMCOP to screw the user making a complaint. ADVICE - only use a minimum of 2 parts which is not always possible e.g. *@*.com.ar (Go fix or delete these immediately as Googles AI and highly paid idiots are too dumb) They won't hire me as they would need to get rid of there playtime slides and become professionals instead of little energetic juveniles which the company tries to use to sack older staff. 2. Subject field - the spammers have found another huge hole in the filter system The spammers change the case of the word you filter in the original headers. GMAIL fails to translate the character sets to what you see on the email message nor does it ignore case which should be mandatory in any simpleton model. subject:(bitcoin) subject:(Bitcoin) The above work only sometimes. Cases that fail totally: bitCOin is the spelling in the headers but the email shows bitcoin In the headers if strange character sets are used GMAIL can't interpret them as foreign and uses best look when the email shows. Also if there is punctuation next to the word it may also fail. SUMMARY - Google is failing with basic filters. It does not translate characters in headers directly to the email presentation which screws basic users so filters become annoying. You need to be a pro to know this so the google certified staff are idiots at best. Wildcards are stuffed and the POSIX rules are poorly implemented. Google AI is bullsh** as humans create the algorithms so some Google employees are sh** kickers at best. The above are basic for a pro to find and fix. Most users are not pros and nor should they be. These are 20 year old holes. Hire another stupid kid who likes slides. SCUM company.
  2. Hi all, Yet another of those stupid questions which I'm in the habit of asking. I don't get much spam these days, maybe three or four per week, (down from anything up to 400 - 500 per day a couple of years back)! Nowadays, I use Gmail for most of my online communications, and I will occasionally receive an email that has managed to slip through Gmail's spam filters, and, of course, I will immediately report it to SpamCop as soon as I become aware of it. However, more often than not, Gmail's filters will already have caught the spam and kindly placed it into the spam folder so that I can deal with it at my convenience. Most of the time, Gmail is correct in its assessment, but if it does come up with a false positive, it's a simple matter to click "not spam" and return the message to the inbox where it belongs. If a message has been correctly identified as spam, normally I will still report it to SpamCop, (having first redacted those lines that Gmail inserts into the headers, causing SpamCop to think that there's "nothing to do"). However, I do occasionally forget to make that report, and I'm just wondering whether it's really necessary to report spam that Gmail has already correctly identified. Is it of any use to anyone if I report spam that Gmail has already identified correctly? I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions on the matter. Thanks in advance. Best regards to all Christopher (Chris) Souter (Sydney, Australia)
  3. Hi! 😃 First time here. Really nice to join you! The FAQ section about GMail seems irrelevant to me. I think it has to be updated for the new version's interface. It's impossible to me to submit to SpamCop. 😕 G. PS. This forum has various recent suggestions, but it's a bit complicated to follow them all.
  4. Sorry for the long post; I'm trying to be crystal clear. I sent this to the "service[at]admin.spamcop.net" address on June 5, 2018 but never heard back from anyone. If this is covered elsewhere, please point me to an appropriate thread. I've searched the forums and can't find a clear answer. Quick backstory: I've been using SpamCop since the early days. In fact, I swapped email and design ideas for the SpamCop logo with founder Julian Haight around 1998. The logo I designed and donated is still in use by SpamCop. I'm running the latest versions of MacOS (10.13.4) and Apple Mail. In addition to one "real" email address for my design studio's domain, I have one Gmail address. The Gmail account is set up to forward incoming mail to my Mac (with IMAP)... which means Gmail also forwards spam sent to the Gmail account. Grrrr. It used to be simple to report that spam... I revealed the raw source (full headers and body), copied, and pasted into the SpamCop reporting form. Worked like a charm for years until the new Mail-host system went in to effect. When attempting to report spam from my Gmail account the system now says: I've tried unsuccessfully to correct this. I even deleted the old Gmail host configuration and followed the instructions to make a new one. I received 5 test messages from the SpamCop bot and successfully submitted them via the online form at https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=mhreturn A new Gmail host was created in the Mailhosts section of my SpamCop account. But it doesn't work. I'm getting the same "nothing to do" result when attempting to report spam. Can someone walk me through this? Please be kind: I'm not a programmer—just a designer. It's probably something simple, but the instructions are not clear to me. BTW, spam that slips through Mail filters to my "real" address inbox is easy to report and works fine on the SpamCop report page. I haven't tried forwarding spam directly to SpamCop in years. That never worked (it bounces). Sigh. Thanks in advance for any tips and help. I love reporting spam via SpamCop. Even if it's only symbolic and doesn't truly help stop the onslaught, it makes me feel a bit better.
  5. This problem has recently (last 7-10 days) popped up. Every report I attempt to submit, ends up with this or similar: Parsing header: host 2002:a81:8705:0:0:0:0:0 (getting name) no name 0: Received: by 2002:a81:8705:0:0:0:0:0 with SMTP id x5-v6csp1438670ywf; Thu, 24 May 2018 07:42:11 -0700 (PDT) No unique hostname found for source: 2002:a81:8705:0:0:0:0:0 Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts Will not trust this Received line. Mailhost configuration problem, identified internal IP as source Mailhost: Please correct this situation - register every email address where you receive spam No source IP address found, cannot proceed. The email was sent to my GMAIL address, I then tried to reprocess my MAILHOSTs configuration for GMAIL. No help! Any ideas?
