Windows Mail in Win 10


Recommended Posts

   I hope this isn't a duplicate but couldn't find anything addressing my problem. As per some instructions I found on the web, I saved the email as a file and attached it and sent to SpamCop. I still got "SpamCop encountered errors." Any ideas on how to remedy this or do I need to just download Thunderbird or similar?

Send a SpamCop Tracking url found at top of page BEFORE you submit

I believe the OP has the same issue as the poster from this thread:

except that OP is the one submitting the spam, and not someone else....

at least that's how I understand the problem. (please correct me if I'm wrong)

I believe "SpamCop encountered errors" indicates a problem parsing the attachment.  Are you attaching more then one email attachment as SpamCop can accept more than one?  Might need to make sure your attachment does not have any blank lines above the headers.  Some mail programs change the line endings so you get extra blank line or no blank lines in the source.  Also will need to check that the first blank line is between the headers and the body.

@WindsorFox what email program do you use to submit the spam?

I would first try the following:

Open the saved email file with notepad and copy/paste the whole content (headers and body) into the https://www.spamcop.net/ online form and see if that causes a problem when you submit it like that.

Also, I am not sure if the attached email files have to end in spamfile.eml or if it can be .txt or .whatever (but I would go with .eml) so be sure it has the correct file type.
Just as a side note, mine works if I submit it as spam1.eml and I can submit many spam emails attached to the one submission email (of course the number then increases for the file.)
