10Mb is a rather high limit for email size for a system that has effectively been closed for several years.  The fact that you can still forward email through SpamCop.net without cost, is amazing.  The system was sold (what 3 yrs ago) and filtered email was continued, at not cost, as a courtesy to the then current customers.  About two years ago, with warning about the uncertainty of the future, email was no longer filtered but just forwarded through the system.  At that time it was my understanding that the forwarding service was intended to give legacy users time to stop using, in an orderly manner, spamcop.net email addresses.

My point is that the bandwidth, in and out, has not been paid for by users for several years. AND warnings have been given that the forwarding privileges may end at any time.  Increasing email max size and there by max bandwidth (which cost someone real money) could bring the legacy service to an end.

As just a user/contributor to SpamCop, I would suggest moving email/addresses to other mail services, starting a year or two ago. JMHO

Hello LKing,

I do recall the change but it is still working for me. The site says it is free to forward to my email address ( Comcast/xfinity).  The main reason I kept using it was for the service of checking spam, etc.  It now seems it is just for submitting suspected URL's for individuals for free.  Since many sites are better now to filter for spam, etc. I might as well bypass Spamcop since it limits email size.

Thanks for the heads up,
