Phrawm48 Posted January 7, 2006 Share Posted January 7, 2006 Why can't SpamCop, or at least my own SpamCop filters, automatically report specific messages as spam? My single most frequently received spam is the infamous "Ultimate Online Pharmaceutical" from "Doctor". I'm obliged to manually report this specific message to SpamCop an average of every other day, though sometimes I receive this message more than once in a 24-hour period. The message's subject line ("The Ultimate Online Pharmaceutical" and sender ("Doctor") are always the same. (Paradoxically, given the unvarying nature of the subject line and sender, the originator perodically updates the intentional mis-spelling in the message body intended to confound message filtering...) While I can easily specify SpamCop or even my POP email client to identify and then delete these specific messages, I'm unaware of any mechanism for automatically reporting this message as spam. Those familiar with this specific, recurring message, realize that this is a serious spam'ing operation. The originator usurps resources worldwide to drive these messages into mailboxes; the scope of the operation can be appreciated by doing an Internet search for the message's subject line… It seems to me it would very sensible (a) to have SpamCop simply delete and report these messages without delivering them to me, or at least ( provide me with the filtering tools necessary to automatically report these messages prior to deleting them. Questions / comments / rebuttals? Cheers & thanks, Riley Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
