Dave_L Posted October 31, 2004 Share Posted October 31, 2004 I was unable to use my Spamcop email address either when purchasing SpinRite 6 online at http://grc.com/, or when attempting to sign up for product update notifications at http://www.grc.com/mail.htm. The following error was displayed: "The Anti-spam eMail Address you provided is incompatible with automated eMail processing." I reported this to their support contact, and received the following reply: Anti-spam eMail Address are incompatible with our automated eMail processing because whenever eMail is sent to you, eMail is sent back to US which requires that we manually prove that we're NOT an automated system by clicking on a specific word in a picture. But we *ARE* an automated system . . . just one which you WANT to receive eMail from, NOT a spamming sender. For this reason, you must provide your actual eMail address if you wish to receive our occasional eMail updates and notices. You do have another "real" address which your ISP gave you, and to which your spam-filtered eMail is sent. Lastly, as you already know, you can easily add, remove, or edit your "custom profile" to specify which sorts of eMail you wish to receive <http://grc.com/mail.htm>. Thank you for your cooperation, time and patience. Sincerely, ... Gibson Research Technical Support Does this seem reasonable to you? I think it's based on a miconception, since my Spamcop email address *is* my actual email address. It is not a forwarding address. I pay for the Spamcop email account, and access it directly from my email client by POP3 or IMAP. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
