mdunlap541 Posted August 12, 2004 Share Posted August 12, 2004 Please do not tell me to RTFM or flame me because I did not read some obscure posting somewhere. I have spent the last 2 hours trying to find the step I am missing, and now I am tired and just want to ask someone who may already know. I am trying to sign up for a "free" reporting account. I operate a small ISP in Columbus Ohio and most of the 300+ spams a day I receive are quashed by my customized SpamAssasin. The few that get through, I would like to report to SpamCop since SpamAssassin uses it as one of its checks. Okay reasoning done. I signed up for an account at: http://www.spamcop.net/anonsignup.shtml I received the "SpamCop authorization" email with the random password. I followed the link, http://members.spamcop.net/ And logged in. From what I have read in the FAQ I was supposed to get a welcome screen with my own super secret email address for me to forward spam to. From what I think I understand from reading elsewhere, I was also supposed to get a form for me to "copy and paste" a report to. I have neither. I have buttons for "Help" Which was none for me. "Site Map" which I did not find directions there. "Statistics" which is cool information, but not helpful in reporting spam. "Past Reports", which I would like there to be some, but now way to add there... Clicking on "View Recient reports" returns an error, "Cannot find spam reports for NNNNNN" where NNNNNN is a number which I assume identifies me. "Preferences" that gives me the "ISP Preferences page" which agian I gives me nice options, but none give me te ability to report anything. Another "Preferences" button which has to do with Reporting. "Add routes" and "Show routes". I give up. Is there really a "free reporting" service or is it just a redherring to lure spammers into giving an email address out? Am I wasting my time? And am I supposed to have a super secret email to send "the ones that got through" to or am I just wishing. Right now, I have a wish in one hand and s$!t in the other and we all know which has more in it. Thanks for any HELPFUL reponses. RTFM is not helpful.
