redtuna Posted November 4, 2005 Share Posted November 4, 2005 I note that 419-type emails usually have a contact email address, often a Yahoo or Hotmail account. Currently, Spamcop does not send reports to those ISPs. I usually manually copy the email to the appropriate abuse department with addition to subject line "spam email uses XXX account for contact address". I then subsequently get a message from (say) Yahoo implying that they have closed down the rogue account. It would be useful if Spamcop could itself generate an abuse report to the ISPs for email addresses found within the body of the message - these could be left 'unchecked' by default in the reporting web page, so that 'humans' like me could then decide that they also wanted to get the account reported.
