dbiel Posted August 6, 2004 Share Posted August 6, 2004 It seems that there is a lot of confusion as to how SpamCop uses spam Traps and what information if any is avaiable to those who have been caught by them. Since there are basicly two ways of getting stuck in a spam trap and the solution to fix each is very different, is it possible to find out how one fell into the trap? Method #1 email addressed to and delivered to a spam trap address Method #2 email addressed to and delivered to someone other than a spam trap that contains either a forged from or reply to address that happens to be a spam trap address, which the receipeint either bounces back for varrious reasons or has set up an automatic reply ie vacation notice, that automaticly sends a message to the forged spam trap address. The question is what does SpamCop do with bounces that hit their spam traps? Are they considered the same as spam? Are they discarded and ignored, if so there would be no listing and no problem, if not does SpamCop release any information regarding the type of mail that was caught in the spam trap (spam vs bounces) Note: this message as also been emailed to deputies <at> spamcop.net You may want to send a polite email to deputies <at> spamcop.net and after for additional information about the mail that was sent to the spamcop spam traps. They should be able to tell you if it's backscatter or spam.
