sfatula Posted January 24, 2009 Share Posted January 24, 2009 So, I have read a lot of messages and not sure I get it yet. Read various FAQs, still not certain. Here is what it boils down to. I am intending to report spam to my domains email accounts to Spamcop. We host our own email servers. So, there is a preference settings I am still not clear on. It is the spam Munging option. So, here is what I THINK happens based on various threads: Obscure - This will always be used to add more blocks, it may not be sent to an ISP if the ISP does not accept munged reports. I believe spammer could still figure out the reporting email and therefore there is some risk of retaliation. Leave Intact - These always go to the ISP and definite risk of attack, always counted Mole - These are never used to add more blocks. So, presuming we have an email folder where we move clearly spam messages read by human eyes, and, that folder sends those emails to SPAMCOP to our reporting address, do the above preferences affect the report that are sent out? The goal of reporting is to make sure new IPs get added to the block list if necessary. So, do I understand the preferences correctly, and, is it useful to report for these purposes? I have checked various mail servers we get spam from, and, they are not all on the block lists. Is it wise to send leave intact reports? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
