How to report spam without body ?


Recommended Posts

The second time ive got one now...

spam but no body provided,so the report system says by by ...nothing to do.

I received......

Return-Path: <c_c.salinasud[at]stange-privat.de>

So they now do it by subject...

How to work around this so i can still report it ?

It is allowed to place one line in the body explaining that there was no message body. Make sure you leave a blank line after the headers.

Also, I do not send these to sites that do not want munged messages, but that is a personal choice. The usual complaint was that the munged headers left the reported anonymous.

I use: <no message body>

...Attn: Moderator: FAQ?

It's included in cause 3 of Larry's FAQ Entry: Known causes of the "Would send" behavior. Does anyone else see a need to make a separate FAQ Entry for "No body provided, check format of submission" (just added to that existing FAQ Entry)?

...Unlikely, IMHO, that anyone with this problem would think to look in a FAQ called "Known causes of the 'Would send' behavior." ;)
