fSoft Posted October 20, 2004 Share Posted October 20, 2004 I've read and looked and searcheed and I just can't find the answers. I operate as a small ISP and I am using Deerfield's VisNetic MailServer 7.5.3. It is set up to use bl.smapcom.net for it's DNSBL. This stops a lot of spam from ever getting past the mail server. However since a lot of mail was still getting through, I came here looking for answers. I found I could submit spam email to spamcop. I have submitted over 150 emails in the past two days and I see a reduction in the amount of spam. However, I still seem to get some of the same email from the same system. My two big questions are: What is the process taken by SpamCop when I submit an email? Do I really have to "Report the spam" email to the ISP and others? So from the time I submit an email as spam, how long before you blacklist that IP address? How many emails from that IP do you need on that IP address before you add it? I also have questions about the following that is included in the data when the message is parsed. 188.8.131.52 not listed in dnsbl.njabl.org 184.108.40.206 not listed in dnsbl.njabl.org 220.127.116.11 listed in cbl.abuseat.org ( 127.0.0.2 ) 18.104.22.168 is an open proxy 22.214.171.124 not listed in query.bondedsender.org 126.96.36.199 not listed in iadb.isipp.com If SpamCop knows this IP is listed in cbl.abuseat.org why isn't it being blocked? If SpamCop knows this IP is an open proxy, why isn't it being blocked? I'm sure I'll have more questions but it's hard to know what ot ask whenone doesn't know how something works.
