Lodewijk Posted August 21, 2011 Share Posted August 21, 2011 Hi! About 7 weeks ago I suddenly began to get some 50 spam a day. Nearly all with malware attachments. After a few days the number had increased to over a 100. Through a tip someone gave me on the Wilders Security forum I found out about SpamCop, and started to post here. With the friendly help I got here -and a tip to utilize MailWasher- was able to set up reporting to SP and Knujon-Coldrain. (Even though I was told that the latter only uses links in spam that lead to spamvertized sites, and most of the spam I got did not have those links. But some did.) Since then I have been reporting all spam, usually 3 or 4 times a day, each time reporting a batch of about 20-30, taking me some 10 minutes or less each time. A few weeks ago it happened one day that I did not get any spam (or only 1 or 2) in 24 hours. After that it began again, but a bit less intensely than before. But now it has been nearly 48 hours of 0 spam! To check I send myself an email, and I got it right away. So this is for real. I almost miss my spam... but note that I say "almost." (The reporting was fun.) This is great! (In case it would start again, so will I with reporting.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
