GaelicGal Posted September 30, 2014 Share Posted September 30, 2014 About a week ago I switched from webmail to Thunderbird, and downgraded my mail service since I no longer need that much storage. Unfortunately, downgrading meant deleting the account and starting a new one, so my emails may have been bouncing for about 2 minutes. Also unfortunately, it coincided with my beginning to use email reporting instead of pasting spam on spamcop.net, and I've been happily engaging in the fight against spam, reporting many more spam emails than usual. Or so I thought. I just logged into spamcop.net and was told my contact email had bounced, and that I have unreported spam. Which now can't be reported because it's too old. Stuff happens intermittently (servers going down, etc.) that can cause bounce messages for a few minutes to a few hours. End users often don't even realize there's a problem. I wish you hadn't stopped accepting my spam just because of a momentary glitch that I was unaware of. One bounce message does not mean that an email address is invalid. While I'm here, I've got a request about the web form. It drives me crazy that when I click "Skip to report" nothing happens if the spam is too old, and I have to page down 4 times to get to where I need to be. (Yeah, I know, First World Problem.) But I've never understood why you don't skip to reports when someone clicks skip to reports. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
