Inbox blocked from sending / receiving Spamcop reports.

Hi,

I have been using Spamcop for probably 20 years but for over a year it appears Time Warner either blocks spams from being forwarded to Spamcop.net or blocks the prepared reports from being returned to my inbox. This started to occur about 6 months before their announced takeover of Brighthouse Networks / Roadrunner. If I create an alias, (ex: Joe Schmoe = xx1234[at]spamcop.net), I can normally send one or two Spamcop reports to go full circle from my email and back through to my inbox before it doesn't work and I have to create another temporary alias. spam forwarded to Spamcop will normally never come back and it takes a lot longer to file spam manually at www.spamcop.net especially from my phone.

No one at Time Warner seems to be able to understand anything other than the most basic questions about the roadrunner service, so I have not found anyone with any understanding of this. The only real reply I've heard is that it's been bad for a while. It is also very slow and at one time during the takeover it would just go down, (but the price goes up!) They are also blocking port access to directly retrieve emails from their server, so services such as Mailwasher will also not work as a result. Don told me there is no problem on the Spamcop end of things.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks

ATF

A few ISP's block sending email if it has the word spm in it.

A lot of people have the word "no_spam in email

Try speaking to their "support"

It could be something like that when sending or even when receiving Spamcop replies. The strange thing is if I use an alias addressee it almost always works as intended at least the first time. It's as though they do create a block list after the first message sent or received, but no one at Time Warner seems to have any clue other than for me to check my inbox settings to see what senders I've blocked which of course is non of the above.

They did definitely monkey with the direct port access to their server as evidenced by Mailwasher not having access and my IP camera alerts which rely on port access are also not working.

It's still a mystery to me.

Best,

I hope you have scanned for Malware

Also a registry check

That's a good tip, I should have done that more recently anyway.

The problem is pretty consistent over 3 computers I normally log in from, and I think it also appears with my Android tablets and phone although I'm losing track. I tend to think it's an issue with Time Warner and it never happened before they took over Brighthouse. As I mentioned I also can't access my mail directly through standard ports anymore using Mailwasher nor get automatic photos, alarms and video off my IP cameras.

Again, this morning, I used a new alias and forwarded a spam to Spamcop and within 5 minutes I had the spamcop response in my inbox. If history repeats itself, that will be the only one that will work because using an alias only works once, maybe twice.

VERY sus when something is working your computer camera (even blocking)?

Android I use but don't find it secure, not yet found a Malware checker that gives me confidence?
