Steps To Stop Spam By Forwarding Spam To SpamCop : Tutorial

You can stop spam from reaching your server without having to configure Spam Assassin or filtering the emails by submitting the Spam to Spam Cop. You can copy and paste the spam email and submit it through the Website form or you can simply forward the email to Spam Cop. In some cases, you cannot submit the spam through their form so you can use the forwarding method. Below are the steps to forward and submit your spam emails to Spam Cop.

IMPORTANT! Make sure the email you are sending is actually spam and not an email you opted into. If you submit spam that is not spam, you could stop the business of a legitimate company and end up being removed from Spam Cop as a user.

Steps to forward Spam email to Spam Cop:

Step 1: Log into your Spam Cop account at the following URL:
http://www.spamcop.net/

If you do not have a Spam Cop account you can sign up for free on their site.

Step 2: Once logged in you will have a specific email address to send to that associates the email with your account.
Copy the email address on their site.

Step 3: Save the spam email to your desktop.
Step 4: Paste the email address in the “To” of a new email message. (In this tutorial we are using Thunderbird.)

Send the email.
