WVNicholson Posted May 22, 2012 Share Posted May 22, 2012 While reporting the day's spam on spamcop.net, I got an error message stating that my account was disabled for reporting spam, apparently due to exceeding the daily limit. (I have reported more spam e-mail in a single day in the past.) The main spamcop.net page now includes the above text at the top (when I am logged in): "Sorry, your account has been disabled. Sorry, your account has been disabled. Please check your email for an explanation or contact SpamCop service." I did receive the e-mail referred to and it stated: "In the 24 hours starting Tue May 22 06:19:58 2012, you have submitted over spams for processing, which exceeds our daily submission limit. No more submissions will be accepted. Your reporting account is disabled. Please reply if you are reporting spam in good faith and feel your account should be reinstated." I replied about an hour ago and I haven't received a response yet. Sorry if I seem a bit hasty reporting on the forum as well already; but the ability to report spam expires after only two days. The reply that I sent is: "I'm surprised that my reporting account is disabled. I am reporting spam in good faith and do indeed feel my account should be reinstated. I'm not aware what the daily submission limit is - I don't think I was every informed of one although I did donate some money to spamcop in the past year. If action was actually taken regarding previously reported spam, then I don't think I would have so much spam to report. In any case, I think I only reported about nine spam e-mail messages today - according to the report history for my account, of which only eight have reports filed. By the way, the e-mail from spamcop does not have a sensible send time (the year is 1970!) - it seems odd that a spam reporting service should be sending out e-mail messages that do not appear to have sensible information in the mail headers". The bogus send time appears to be something that is found by Yahoo's web-based mail reader (which is revealed when I choose the option to reply). I can't actually see a 1970 date "in the clear" by casual inspection of the header (although a number of fields in the header are quite long and look like garbage - I don't think they intended for humans to read). According to my records, I paid (or "donated") 15 dollars for a year's service to Spamcop in January this year, William Nicholson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
