Tommy Posted June 26, 2004 Share Posted June 26, 2004 Now that I have had spamcop email for several months (and was a paid reporting subscriber for a while before that), I have tried several different options for reporting spam, but I don't understand the distinctions between them. Can someone clarify the differences between the different spam reporting procedures: 1) spam in held mail folder then queued for reporting 2) spam source copied into the spam reporting form 3) spam forwarded for reporting using special email address 4) spam in held mail folder then queued for QUICK reporting 5) spam in the inbox identified as spam using the webmail interface 6) Other reporting options I have not yet discovered ? My guess is that options 1, 2, and 3 are practically identical because you get a similar processing report. (Sadly I've recently slipped a notch on my average reporting time -- from 2 to 3 hours.) The quick reporting (4) mystifies me. Sometimes a quick-reported spam seems to produce about as many reports as a "regular" spam, but most of the time it appears to only report the source of the spam (not the embedded links or whatever). So I suspect it doesn't do the same level of analysis and maybe does not affect the "average reporting time" score. The spam report feature from the webmail interface (5) is completely inscrutable -- you just select the message and click the button and the message disappears and the interface says the message has been reported as spam. I saw no indication of what that means -- I did not notice the message moved to held mail or queued for reporting (but maybe I missed it). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
