kgb Posted July 28, 2004 Share Posted July 28, 2004 I have received a report back in regards to few hundred spam messages that made it into my held mail folder. I have examined the reports and noticed that all spam complaints have gone up to my ISP. I have 2 or 3 e-mail addresses that I have forwarded to my spamcop e-mail address and it appears that spamcop takes my ISP which is responsible for forwarding the message to my spamcop account as originating ISP for the spam causing me a lot of headaches. Here's an example of a problem with spamcop logic Email originates from point A (spammer) --> e-mail gets delivered to it's final destination (my mail box) --> Mail server forwards the e-mail to spamcop account ( point B ) Instead of reporting point A as a spammer it reports point B. Now I understand that certain spammers forge message headers and this is the only sure way of having to eliminate that problem but that sort of prevents me from sending any spam complaints and I do get hundreds of them a day. What should I do in my case? Should I just stop reporting spam in fear of having to report my self as a spammer? Any suggestions would be apreciated.
