SpamCop helps you punish spammers for sending you their junk mail. This service is free. Often, spammers lose their accounts and even get charged "cleanup fees" by their internet providers. In addition, reported spam senders are blocked by users of SpamCop's free blocking list. Unfortunately, this is an ongoing battle. Spammers adapt quickly and persistently. By reporting spam, you can help to turn the tide. SpamCop makes this otherwise slow and technical task quick and easy.
Getting Started: free reporting service
SpamCop will send email on your behalf to the appropriate network administrator. Before using SpamCop, you must
READ THIS - you are responsible!
- If I break these rules, my access to SpamCop will be immediately and permanently revoked.
- I will use SpamCop only on email which is unsolicited, bulk email. (details..)
- SpamCop emails reports on my behalf. Replies to these reports will be forwarded to my email address. I understand that these replies are not spam. (details..)
- I take full responsibility and assume all liability for email I send using SpamCop.
Note: If you are new to spam reporting in general, rather than a seasoned spam fighter trying SpamCop for the first time, you should also read some of the information in the FAQ to help you send accurate and credible spam reports:
- What do I need to know to get started reporting spam?
- How do I get my email program to reveal the full headers?
- How should I select the recipients for my spam report?
Please provide a primary email address for SpamCop - your initial password and replies to your reports will be sent here. If you plan to report spam received at other email accounts, you will need to configure them after you log in.
- Your email address will be used to contact you if someone has questions or problems with the spam you are reporting.
- This is a free SpamCop account. You may re-run this free authorization whenever you need to. If you do, any previous authorization information associated with your email address will be deleted.
Email Address Blinding: SpamCop tries to protect your email address when sending reports. Report recipients will be able to reply to your reports, but they will do so through SpamCop. They will not know your email address unless/until you reveal it, or unless they figure it out from codes embedded in the spam you are reporting.
Note that this is a one-way blind only. If you reply to an email, the email address used will be revealed.
