mholloway Posted February 7, 2008 Share Posted February 7, 2008 I'm a moderator for a LISTSERV list currently getting over 300 spam per day. I used to run my own linux box with Spamassassin to filter the list messages, but haven't set it back up since moving. I've been trying to use Gmail, and adding many keywords to the custom filter, but with that, and the regular Gmail filters, I still get over 100 unfiltered spam a day to sort through. Filtering, or whitelisting, on the From line is useless since all of it is coming from the host's LISTSERV server. Is caught spam on the Spamcop server used for either the SA filters, or the Spamcop block list? My concern is that if hundreds of spam a day sent to me from our Washington U server end up in the Spamcop database then our server domain will end up on the blacklist, which did happen several times when I was trying to report spam caught on my linux box, which ended up getting me banned from Spamcop reporting, and in hot water with WU. If this is even a remote possibility I can't use Spamcop. Am I right that spam caught by Spamcop is used by Spamcop? If so, is there a way to keep the WU server out of trouble, or is there another service where I could keep my filtered spam to myself?
