kamaraju Posted June 24, 2006 Share Posted June 24, 2006 I have read the various FAQs, "read this before posting" threads and could not find answer to this question. Let me first summarize my understanding of how spamcop works. The user reports his/her spam to spamcop. Spamcop parses the spam and contacts the actual ISPs/open relays etc., who were involved in sending that spam email. After some time if no necessary action is taken by the spammer, then the appropriate IP address gets added to SCBL. Other people who use this SCBL may choose to block/tag emails coming from these "spam sending IPs". So far am I correct? If the above is correct, then my question is why would a spammer care if his IP is blocked by other ISPs? I mean, the spammer can still keep sending spam and choose to ignore all the undeliverable/bounced messages. How would it affect the spammer? Why would the spammer stop just because his email is blocked by some mail administrators? I am sorry if this is a stupid question. But I searched the forums+google with search terms like "what happens when a spammer is listed in scbl" etc., May be I was using the wrong search terms. If you can point to a webpage which talks about solution to this problem, I would be happy to read it. thanks raju Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
