How to report spam from Outlook?


Recommended Posts

Hi! (from Denmark)

This is my first time here. I have been searching for help to forward spam from Outlook.

I have several email-accounts checked when i start up Outlook. I have a paid Spamcop account (email).

When I am receiving spam from another email-address - is it possible then to forward these spammails to SC? And if possible - how do I do that?

I have Norton Antispam installed and I would like to forward these spammails to be reported.

I don't know for sure, if I have made my self clear??

I hope for some help - as you might have guessed - I am a newbie..

Yes it is possible. To find out the address to submit them to, browse to http://mailsc.spamcop.net/ and enter your spamcop username and password. Just above the paste in box, you should see the address to use.

Outlook has some problems easily providing all of the information spamcop needs to determine the source of the messages however. Start at http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/118.html if you wish to persue that option. There are also multiple posts here in the forums about this subject.

Since you have a spamcop email account already, you may be able to reconfigure your other email accounts so they pass through the spamcop filters before reaching your desktop at all. You may also be able to return the spam messages to the spamcop Held Mail folder via IMAP. I don't use Outlook so can't be as much help there.
