Quick reporting by email


dakka

Recommended Posts

I am runnig my own mail server and run spamassassin with additional rules and filters. I have been achieving a 100% hit rate on spam. I currently forward all spam to my unique spamcop submit address for reporting - but I still have to go through the tedious process of manually processing the spam. Is there a way to submit spam reports by email and have them 'quick' reported?

Auto-submitting things you never see is a bad idea for quick reporting.

On occasion, the parser does mess up and stop the parse too soon and will report your ISP or your mail server. Do you have mailhosts configured.

Quick reporters still need to examine the report that shows where reports went to and apologize to any ISP incorrectly reported and explain the problem to the deputies.

With those warnings, there are posts on this system explaining how to get signed up for quick reporting. There are also at least 2 relevant entries in the FAQ+ located on this forum.

Yes I am already signed up for quick reporting. I also have mailhosts correctly configured. For the past month each and every spam I have reported has been in fact spam - since I am using the very same spmassassin, URI block and open relay checks that spamcop is using.

My question was how to quick report by email. I still review the reports however when you are receiving over 100+ per day, one's threshold of tolerance tends to wane.

Subject to the caveats above, you can forward them to quick.16charANcodeNMBR[at]spam.spamcop.net (substituting your own 16charANcodeNMBR code of course, bacically substituting "quick" for "submit" in your submit address) once you are approved. Please email quick.16charANcodeNMBR[at]spam.spamcop.net for instructions.
