Yahoo - "nothing to do" message.

Most of the time when I report spam received in my Yahoo account, I get the "nothing to do" message. Is this a Yahoo problem or have the spammers figured something out about Yahoo and Spamcop?

Without the TRACKING URL (like I am posting below) nobody here will be able to help you since there are so many different reasons for the "nothing to do" message and only through the parsing messages we can see what the reason is.

if you are worried that anybody could find out your email address or name or any personal information, SC munges the to: <email@examlpe.com> address replacing it with to: <x> and replaces some characters in the Message-ID: with underscores ____

Here's mine I just submitted:
SpamCop v 5.4.0 © 2022 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Here is your TRACKING URL - it may be saved for future reference:
https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6776145388z6080b6709295cf287a14b891e44aee45z
 

if you follow the link in the report you'll be able to see that the headers have been munged by SC at 4 different places...

I don't think I can change Yahoo's configuration.

It doesn't have to do with Yahoo!'s mailhost config. Your SpamCop account has mailhosts set up, and by removing them it should work as intended.

In other words, edit your mailhost configuration (petzl's link doesn't work btw... ) under the tab [Mailhosts] (as shown below) you can edit, remove, or disable? the mailhosts.

this last one, when I ran it through without mailhosts, came from a google system. Unfortunately google doesn't like to work with SC and the reports get sent to a "garbage bin" but still count as spam towards the IP address and it gets listed in the  Block List...

I'm posting the example here because it's too old to submit

SORBS (spam and Open Relay Blocking System) has the IP address listed

and Spamcop has 209.85.0.0/16 listed with 47072 spam reports! and that's why I believe that google bounces spam reports....
