GrootBrak Posted July 25, 2006 Share Posted July 25, 2006 I have lodged three disputes already with no replies from spamcop. Below is the printout from the site. I believe that I am being innocently targeted by SpamCop, but they are really not trying to be helpfull. First of all, I am using an IMAP account and used to access it on internet itself. The account is from www.myrealbox.com and believe me, they don't tolerate spam. I have now set up Linux on my home PC and use only GPRS with my cellphone to access internet. The moment I've tried to send mail about two weeks ago, I was blocked. The trouble it seems, is that my phone gets assigned an IP adress by the network provider. Now I do believe there is a huge pile of spammers using this network, but I am NOT one of them. I actually used the account so little that I was often send a warning if I don't access it, then it will be closed. I know for sure that the IP adres in question does not belong to me. I have tried with another PC and my phone, but get the same result. The fun part is, when I access my account on Internet, I can send as usual, no blocked spam warnings whatsoever, so its definetly not linked to my email account, but I am still using the same phone to access internet, thus the same IP. My problem is how to get myself clear from this "spammers?" I have removed my GPRS settings on my phone and requested the settings again in the hope of getting a new unlisted IP, but that did not help at all. It seems I am branded for life. I have lodged comlaints to my network provider at www.mtn.co.za, but they also don't reply. When I use my phone to access my corporate mail, with the same PC, I can send mail as normal, but I do use another GPRS access point that I ahve to set up manually. (The blocked IP, is set up OTA,*Over The Air*, meaning no choices for me.) Is IP's differing from access point to access point? To be quite honest our corporate lan should be blocked for spam if I can count the thousands of junk being passed around.
