Irish Steve Posted April 30, 2014 Share Posted April 30, 2014 I've been reporting spam and the like for a while, but in recent weeks, I'm getting increasing numbers of items that are being bounced by the Spamcop service, so they don't get reported. Some are being bounced because the system thinks there's a virus in them, some are just bounced,probably because they've got malware in them after the main message body, but I can't be sure, the bounce message is not exactly helpful. The latest this morning had been cleaned before sending, (there was a virus in the Zip attachment) but the header had a ***VIRUS*** warning in it, the attachment had been removed. So, should I just forget it, and just do what the majority of users do, and just delete the junk, and forget about Spamcop, or has something changed, and I've missed the specifics, so the reports I'm sending in are now not acceptable I have my own domain, hosted on a shared service, with a number of active mail accounts, and a "bucket" facility that catches anything that's sent to the domain. I'm using Thunderbird, and normally, just forward the mails to the reporting address that I've got. spam reporting is an overhead, which I don't mind doing if it's making a difference, but if I'm just wasting my time, (and a bounce by Spamcop IS a waste of my time), I for sure do have better things to do with my time and energy. It's possible that I don't have the correct set up for the account, but the tutorials I've found are as clear as mud on the way to set up that information. So, I come back to the basic question, should I just forget trying to stop spam, and just let my antivirus deal with the dangerous stuff, and just delete the rest of it, or is there an easy way to get Spamcop to work the way I think it's supposed to?
