Wazoo Posted October 24, 2005 Share Posted October 24, 2005 Brought here from a PM..... Hello- I just registered with SpamCop this past weekend, and I am NOT having a good experience with it so far. It has only been within the past week or so where I have been getting more spam than usual in my inbox,and I came across your site on the ATT Worldnet Member Services page. I thought I'd give it a try,but I may have made a mistake.I have had nothing but problems since registering. When I attempt to forward spam to the address provided (as directed), I am getting automated error messages stating that the spam message could not be found in the email,but as a test, when I forwarded one of the error messages,that was accepted! What is going on??!! At this point, I am very annoyed and am very seriously considering closing this account; it has only been a very short time,true,but I do not see where this service is working. Where do I start (especially after all the other nice discussions this last week-end?) 1. please see Spammers love Forum name = e-mail address 2. 24 hours and 1 week views of some SpamCop.net reporting activity seems to suggest that it most certainly is working. 3. Following the Start Here item seen in the Forum list/front page (noting the commentary in red there) .. or reading the Announcement within a Forum section titled [How-to] Post a Question .... one of the items of note is the help us help you thing .. details lacking in your PM (that should have been an actual post) include the most basic of specifics ... the e-mail application involved. You also didn't define the location of the "(as directed)" instructions, so not sure where you've been, what you've looked at. As found on the first page of the Forum, Start Here The problems you describe are already discussed, answers provided in the FAQ data. follow the links provided. The "easy" guess is that you'll be wanting to look for "How do I get ... Full Headers" and find the listing for your e-mail application (hoping that you're using something that someone else has provided the details on) .... I could even go with the thought that one of the standard "newbie" scenarios is a Windows based computer running Outlook Express, at which point I would offer up OE6 Secure handling of e-mail, Why Forward won't work as the most likely situation/solution. (Caveat that all this would be based on guesses, which is not a good thing) You could spend some time and simply peruse some existing Topics/Discussions here ... you'll note you are not the first to ask this question (hence the FAQ entries) .. you'll also see some other issues discussed that will come up after you get your submittals to parse correctly .... you may even hit a spot where you might be able to answer someone else's query ....???
