garny Posted February 23, 2010 Share Posted February 23, 2010 I have sent previous week a request to make use of Spamcopâ€™s spam traps, but there is still no reply. There I did write of a way to circumvent or literally block spam traps. I guess this is no secret for the average spammer, but I have seen no solution to this. Circumventing spam traps is easy and requires, no manual intervention once setup, but to add newly discovered addresses. The only thing you need is a firewall filter on outbound for all spam traps you know. One easy spam trap is nirvana.admins.ws from http://www.uceprotect.net/en/index.php?m=2&s=0 . One could also recon to block whole IP ranges like Spamcopâ€™s and others. I guess there are spam traps that are kept hidden, but then they will collect very limited number of unique attempts. There is an option to relay spam to Spamcop which is a solution that addresses the problem above, but adds new. How is Spamcop assured that there is no mangling of the header being relayed and anyone could claim the opposite. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
