Lking Posted July 3, 2014 Share Posted July 3, 2014 I was working under the assumption that, since I get so many of these, that a lot of other people are, too. ... Drake Timing is another thing to consider. For example: Lets assume the an IP address is not on the SpamCop Black list because it is a new IP or one of several used by the spammer in rotation so this IP has timed off of the BL. Using this unlisted IP the spammer starts sending his trash, being lucky they don't send anything to a honeypot. But during the first minute or two they send say 10,000 spam including several to you. Until some number of those spam are reported by you or others the IP will not get on, or back on, the BL. So from an individual's prospective it may look ineffective. However, those that receive any of the 90,000+ spam sent from this IP after it gets back on the list may have a different view. It is difficult to evaluate the "big" picture result when we are looking through the 'straw' of our own limited view/account. I assume the spam you are talking about are in you inbox, not placed in your hold folder as possible spam. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
