email@example.com Posted March 10, 2005 Share Posted March 10, 2005 Does anyone else have a problem with SpamCop listing IP addresses without any proof of spam originating from those IP's Especially where a shared IP is used by numerous different clients? While I hate spam as much as the next guy, this is throwing the baby out with the bathwater in that many of my clients complain of legitimate mail bouncing because of SpamCop lists. Despite requests, no one at spam Cop has ever delivered to my company a single spam complaint to identify a domain name associated with junk emails. We shut down spammers if we are notified but this blocking of entier groups of innocent domain users without so much as a note to us is going to kill SpamCop eventually. They may soon need to use their defense fund to protect them from themselves if they don't clean up their act and start to notify hosting companies of offenders and cease blocking shared IP. I have started to notify all of my clients of SpamCop and suggested they notify them directly anytime their legitimate emails are blocked. Also asked my clients to contact the recipients and suggest they stop using SpamCop lists until they are cleared up and the notification problems is resolved. I have paid for SpamCop services for a number of years and agree with the objective but the cure is starting to be worse than the actual problem when legitimate business people cannot send important emails...people who never sent spam in their life. If anyone has similar problems please share. We need spamcop but it has to be done right. Paul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
