studog Posted July 4, 2005 Share Posted July 4, 2005 If an email is too old to report, there's still a lot of processing that goes on. I have to assume this is so one can use the info to manually report spam if you're so inclined. I am not. I would like to see an option in the preferences that disables any further processing if an email is too old. I'll be so bold as to suggest that having it turned on should be the default. This should save SpamCop a huge amount of system resources by avoiding useless processing. This will save me time, as I won't have to wait for the spam to process (which as we know can take a long time if there are spammer tricks involved) before finding out it's too old. I think the majority of people don't bother to manually report spam if it's too old according to SpamCop. Having it on by default will catch all of those, maximising the resource savings. The downside is the number of complaints generated from the people who do use the info to manually report until they change their preferences.
