Reports can't be sent, but email stays in queue


Recommended Posts

I tried to report spam, and apparently it's not reportable. However, the email doesn't get cleared from the queue, and when I go back to the site, it tells me "Unreported spam Saved: Report Now". It seems like Spamcop should be deleting this from my queue when it realizes that it can't send any reports. I should not have to remove it myself. Here is the end of the processing screen that I get.

Of course a tracking URL would have been nice.

However, based on the information provided, if SC/the parser were to remove your report from your queue, you would not have an opportunity to review what the parser found.

Just delete it and move on.

Sorry, here's the link: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6372706844z03952f3bb4595463ae09c956c7b4d131z

I don't want it to be deleted automatically before I can view the messages but in normal cases where SC decides it is unable to send any reports, it takes it out of the queue. In this case, it just seems like it aborts processing rather than deciding that it cannot send reports.

And this isn't the first time I've run into this.

Yes it does seem to terminate oddly, not sending a report or tabulating the spam from  There does seem to be several situation where the body of spam cause the parser tool to choke.  In the past when this has happened I have truncated the body of the spam, adding the note "Body truncated" before submitting

In cases like this, for info only I forward the spam to abuse{AT}Fedex{DOT}com
