n6ber Posted July 23, 2004 Share Posted July 23, 2004 I'm still confused. I run my own mail server and have several addresses on that server. When I read the FAQ it says to put in all addresses. In other places it seems to say only one. One does not make since. I would think you need to enter them all. In another place I think I read to enter them all but only the last will show. Which is it. If only one will show how would we ever be able to be sure which ones we put in??? If only one is needed how would you know that our other, using that same server, are valid addresses you should allow. Questions: 1) Do we put in ALL e-mail addresses server by the same mail server? 2) If 1 is yes will you update the web site so we can see all of the e-mail addresses server by a given server and allow us to add and delete as required? 3) If 1 is no then how would you ever know that the other e-mail addresses belong to us? I see no way that you would. Another point I think you need to look at. There is a common way to "TAG" e-mail addresses by putting a "+" between the user name and the tag, i.e., user+tag[at]domain.com, that several mail server use. I think that there is even a RFC to covers it but I'd have to check that. Although you most likely want to not always remove the "+tag" from the e-mail address when doing checks you should have an option per e-mail address or per server to have spamcop remove any tags when it does compairs. I know on my mail server this is at the server level so that should be fine. This way if I report a spam message that contains user+tag[at]domain.com you would do the checks for user[at]domain.com.
