Issues with reporting


Recommended Posts

This morning I received 19 "...accepted 1 email..." and 1 "...accepted 2 emails..." notifications, dated 28/02/2022 between 22:21 and 23:24. All contain links to emails which on the website give "Nothing to do" messages, due to "identified internal IP as source" and similar errors.

A sample of the tracking URLs:

https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6742982954z20c8c95ac54af6051dfa2691c357fb65z

Interestingly, I did not send any e-mails for processing.

Does anyone know what is going on?

Correction, on February 28th I did submit 2 spams which I reported succesfully before the situation described above. One of them was one of the nasty extortion spams currently popular:

I have not seen any issues with reporting.  Could be held mail in someone's queue.

And just now a report I just submitted, sent to a former Adobe address (disowned and added to spamlist after the attack several years ago and received many spams) can so-called not be processed due to it being "153.3 days old".

You would almost think it was enemy action.

I've no idea what held mail in someone's queue would mean for me. I only submit "my" spams.

This is certainly an issue with reporting, and I'd appreciate alerting of Admins, if they still exist here.

Update: on the SpamCop website I now have many "Unreported spam saved: Report Now" links, and following them leads to reportable spams, which I have industriously been reporting. They're all "21' or '20' hours old" and I didn't submit them, as noted in my original post.

Parser glitch or enemy action? Who shall say?

Changed.

Was always strong and random as possible. It always struck me that SC wouldn't accept a properly strong password. I'd have to log in with the old cqmail user name and weak PW. That cqmail account disappeared owing me about 100 dollars and ceased communicating. Now SC apparently does accept cqmail with strong and long PW. Now perhaps a new, secure, inlog name, and an apology for those who lost out on cqmail?

Has someone been spoofing my account?

There is a 30 character limit on passwords for SpamCop

Suggest you keep it at or under 29 Alphanumeric/Character limit

I don't know, nor do I have access to logs, etc. However, looking at some of the reports I see the parser "thinks" maybe:

Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts

They may have acquired your special secret submit.xxxxxx@spam.spamcop.net address, which doesn't need a password.  You may want to contact the deputies to and have them track where they came from.

The original problem, it is becoming clear, was backscatter spam. spam was sent from "my address", which had been distinguished by being chosen as spamsender of the month by the United Spammers' League, to among others an address with a default reply to all rule.

However there is also an ongoing issue with my account, which the administrator is investigating at the moment. I'll supply updates as appropriate.
