[Resolved] Munge unique/tracking URLs?


Recommended Posts

A question I have wondered for a long time and never found the answer...how to deal with unique URLs when reporting spam?

These days a good amount of the spam I get use unique/tracking URLs. I assume some spam complaints eventually make it back to the spammer, so reporting these emails with the unique URLs intact allow the spammer to know exactly who reported them. This seems like a bad idea. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Put another way, if SpamCop munges our email address, why not munge unique/tracking URLs as well?

There isn't any way for SpamCop to identify a secret code that reveals your email address to the spammer.

Before you submit the spam for reporting, you are welcome to delete any URL or code you think might lead to the discovery of your email address.
