Reporting Spam

SpamCop parses reported email, sending warning information to the internet service provider responsible for hosting the services used by the spammer (web sites and email sending sites). SpamCop also uses the information to generate SpamCop's free blocking list.

Unfortunately, this is an ongoing battle. Spammers adapt quickly and persistently. Report spam and help SpamCop turn the tide. SpamCop makes this otherwise slow and technical task quick and easy.

The SpamCop reporting service is free.

Getting Started

SpamCop will send email on your behalf to the appropriate network administrator. Before using SpamCop, please read the following - you are responsible!

  1. If I break these rules, SpamCop will immediately and permanently revoke my access to SpamCop.
  2. I will use SpamCop only on email which is unsolicited, bulk email.

Email address

SpamCop tries to protect the recipient email addresses of the messages being reported. Report recipients may reply to reports, but they do so through SpamCop. They will not know the email address used to send the objectionable message unless/until a member reveals it, or unless they figure it out from codes embedded in the message reported. Note that this is one-way blind only. If a member replies to an email, the email address used will be revealed.
