Spam Cop

Post by Gavan » Sun Feb 05, 2012 5:05 am

Havok / Bitmask,

How long as CM used Spam Cop for? I ask this as my turn was just bounced back to me as I am on Spam Cops RBL. (Not sure how I got there but I will just send my turn in from my second email address instead)
Just cause I am paranoid does not mean they are not out to get me.

Spam Cop & Spam Haus are standard options in most cPanel hosting accounts like the one C-M use.
It's not something new, but the RBL database gets updated all the time.
Speak to your ISP if you get a message about RBL hits. The C-M server will not be the only server that will block your mails.

I don't personally subscribe to spam cop. DId you receive a bounce back with their info it? If so I'd like to see it.

Havok,

I have emailed it to you.

BitMask,

I have a hosted domain so my ISP never sees my email. I have logged a fault with my hosting service.

Havok,

Just to let you know it is happening again. I have sent in my turn from my second email address.

Spamcop has blocked your ISP's mail server for the next 24 hours. It should be fine again after that.

Havok,

This time around they have said

"
We have rotated the IP. Please check the mailbox functionality from your end.

"

I assume this means they have changed which mail server I am using for my domain and as such this should stop the problem from happening. (Not sure I would call this a solution but if it works)

You ever used a site called MX Toolbox? Can be helpful for trouble shooting blacklists. http://www.mxtoolbox.com

You might want to just switch email addresses if this keeps up.
