chrisfourie Posted August 18, 2006 Share Posted August 18, 2006 :angry: SpamCop has become a total frustration for us. Spamcop unfortunately is running their list and not actually even stopping the spammer. They decided that any bounces it receives from mail boxes over quota or anyone with an auto responder is now spam. As a result, incorrect mail servers get listed and to quote SpamCop: "It appears this listing is caused by misdirected bounces. We have a FAQ which covers this topic: Why auto-responses are bad (Misdirected bounces). Please read this FAQ and heed the advice contained in it." We have got 1000's of clients who uses a "catch all" mail account on our servers from where their own internal mail servers collect the mail and thus making it impossible for us to even attempt what they suggest, and to make matters worse, you cannot even trace the "incorrect listing" to the source and to quote SpamCop again: "spam traps are secret, no reports or evidence are provided by SpamCop" Autoresponders for example, that reply to the spam messages forged header can also result in a listing. So with that being said, its kind of hard to stop autoresponders and mail forwards unless we eliminate them from services we offer. In any event if we disable bounces then mail servers such as AOL will no longer accept mail from our servers because the server is not RFC compliant. This has been a heated issue for many ISP's worldwide (even here in South Africa) and these SpamCop lists that are supposed to be helping are actually shielding the spam source itself. Are there any other IPS's out there experiencing the same frustrations? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
