removing old cache ...


Recommended Posts

what happen to complaints send to old cache value contacts?

I tried to use the [refresh/show] links, and sometimes happen that the contact got updated.

I'm curious to know if Spamcop take care to resend the complaintsto the right contact when bounced or got answered not related to the reported IP, if I do not use the refresh link (most time) and the cache is old.

thank you

SpamCop will not send new reports when you update a reporting address. We only get to report a spam once.

The act of sending the report is what feeds our blocking list database. It doesn't matter if the report was sent to the wrong address.

...My guess would be that you do not have to cancel and send again to parse (because you haven't reported the spam nor sent anything until you press "Send"), just Refresh the browser cache ... but let's see what others have to say!

  1. - parse the spam
  2. - follow all the [refresh/show] links
  3. if the email address's don't look right, check what happens when you refresh...
    • alternately, do a manual dig on the reporting address

  • - if all are already updated, send the report

[*]- if at least one is old, Cancel the report, and parse again

[*]refresh the page

Some of the contact details are manually entered into the database for specific reasons, so refreshing the cache will blow them out.
