gezgin Posted September 16, 2014 Share Posted September 16, 2014 As the mail train called â€œ1 October 2014â€ bears down on us all, Iâ€™ve had an â€œAha!â€ moment about forwarding from my SpamCop addresses. My particular problem is that I currently have SpamCop hold all mail thatâ€™s not from addresses in my White List: everything (and thereâ€™s quite a bit of it) not already whitelisted gets held so I can report or (rarely any more) whitelist it as need be. After 30 September thereâ€™s not going to be a Held folder or a White List, which to me means that a lot of junk thatâ€™s currently being caught is going to get passed on to the new forwarding address that I provide. (I may be wrong about this but I suspect not.) My solution, which Iâ€™ve just implemented, is to create a brand-new Gmail account. All messages sent to my SpamCop addresses will be forwarded to this address, which will not be used for anything else. Now hereâ€™s the Aha!: In the settings for that account, Iâ€™ve turned on â€œVacation responseâ€ and Iâ€™ve created a message that (1) tells people that my email address has changed and (2) gives my new email address in a form that is human-readable only. Iâ€™ve tried this out sending messages to the one SpamCop address that Iâ€™ve already turned forwarding on for and it works perfectly.
