Hello. all goes well if I forward the headers and bodies of the messages individualy in outlook 2003 but when I try and send multiple messages as an attachment I get an error that spamcop could not find the body of the message. actually the error is

SpamCop encountered errors while saving spam for processing:

SpamCop could not find your spam message in this email:

Is there another way I can do this quick reporting with the free account? I'm receiving over 1 to 200 spam messages a day and i don't have time to forward the individual messages every single day.

Thanks.

Hi, marrie12!

...Please stop doing that! Reference: click on big red link, near top of nearly any SpamCop Forum page, labeled "------>------> Latest and Current Announcements <------<------" and on the resulting web page click the link on the line that starts with "Please Do Not Forward spam to Parser If You Use Microsoft Outlook!"

I'm receiving over 1 to 200 spam messages a day and i don't have time to forward the individual messages every single day.
...Please don't feel obligated to report every single spam you receive! Each you choose to report is appreciated. :) <g>

so if i cannot use outlook that means I hve to learn notehr email program correct? I've alwys forwarded every sigle spam just iin case no complaints hve been sent out about said piece of spam.

The problem is that Outlook reporting was found to send reports incorrectly. Since you are using quick reporting you are doubly at risk of reporting your own ISP or, indeed, others incorrectly.

Outlook has always been less friendly for reporting so if Outlook isn't important to you, you don't mind changing to a different program and reporting is important for you then you could switch to Mozilla Thunderbrid or my personal favourite (although quite old now) Pegasus Mail.

But please read all the warnings about quick reporting... :)

Here is the boilerplate on Outlook...

As a result of a fairly lengthy and intense investigation of Outlook 2003 and 2007, we have discovered that Outlook does *not* include accurate headers when you forward spams as attachments.

Outlook reorders the Received headers, which makes them untrustworthy, as well as deleting/not forwarding other headers including X-headers, which is of less importance but which may lose some valuable information needed by ISPs/hosting companies.

The result of the 'scrambled" or reordered Received headers means that SpamCop does not reliably know where the injection point of the spam is.

Outlook is reordering the headers, not SpamCop.

I'm sorry to have to tell you that as long as you are using Outlook as your email software, you *may not* forward your spams as an attachment for processing.

You can manually copy/paste the headers and text of your spam into our web form at http://www.spamcop.net/ if you want. Another option is to look into running a third-party utility or add-on such as MailWasher, but you must stop forwarding as an attachment.
