SpamCop Tool

2.03
27 June 2009

Utility integrated with Mail.app and SpamCop.net.

Overview

SpamCop Tool is a utility integrated with Apple's Mail application and SpamCop.net. It is used to report and process junk mail.

SpamCop Tools allows you to easily report spam to SpamCop.net and internal spam reporting addresses. Hundreds of spam messages can be processed quickly.

With a single click, you can also report fraud and scam messges to the main FTC spam address.

What's new in SpamCop Tool

Version 2.03:
  • Better Leopard support - The previous version worked best under Mac OS 10.4. Sending messages and deleting spam and SpamCop messages worked as expected. Under Mac OS 10.5 some of the mechanisms changed and deleting spam or SpamCop messages would not delete on IMAP servers. This has been fixed in SpamCop Tool 2.
  • Local and IMAP Folders - SpamCop 2 now handles folders and subfolders in your Mac or IMAP server better.
  • Support for Tabs in Safari - There is now an option to use Safari even if it is not your default browser and it supports tabs if your Safari preferences is not set to use tabs. The tool also opens a new window in Safari to not interfere with an exiting window.
  • Support for FTC spam address - You can now forward fraud and scams to the FTC spam address.
  • Private Spam Address - Spam can be redirected to an internal spam address. Use with SpamAssassin.
  • Private Not-Spam Address - A ham message, or a message that is not spam can be redirected to your local not-spam address. Use with SpamAssassin.
  • Single Button Operation - Click a single button to send your spam to SpamCop.net as well as internal spam reporting address. And the FTC.

I've seemed to get on the spam lists, after years of remaining below the radar and I'm at the point where I want to start fighting back. I pulled out my copy of SpamX that I bought years ago and, of course it won't work as it needs to call home and apparently that home server is gone in favor of HSC's new product, Purify (I can't remember how much I paid for Sp@mX at the time, but I'm not too keen on buying *another* product when my first's support has been completely dropped). So, I'm looking for another method to report spammers, but without spending any more money and again, all I want to be able to do is report spammers. One of my biggest features of Apple Mail is to be able to do this. It's nice to mark junk mail, now let us report it. So I've registered at spamcop.net and set up SpamCop Tool with my spamcop report address. I select all of my junk emails in my junk folder, hit the "Report Spam" button on spamcop and bam. There you go. Not only reported to spamcop.net, but also spam@use.gov. Nice. It's got a function where it will watch your junk folder and report, but it has to be left running and I don't get *that* much spam... yet. For what I'm wanting to do (just report spam), this is great. The only thing I could ask for is for it to remove the email from the junk folder to the trash after reporting it (which it could very well do if handled from the timed watch function - it doesn't upon clicking the "Report Spam" button). The documentation could be a little better too. There's a page on the site that shows the 3 preference panes, but doesn't explain what you're looking at (I'm still not sure what a "Master Reports Button" is). Overall, we're fighting the scourge of the internet and we're doing it for free without having to do "show full headers - copy email - paste into page - send" for each email. It's extremely convenient (and satisfying) to simply select a spam email and report it with a click.

I should also mention with the talk of leopard in the what's new and comments that this was tested with OS X 10.6 and Apple Mail with no problems. I *did* have to go into my charter account and manually allow emails sent to the spam.spamcop.net address as I'm assuming charter automatically blocks outgoing emails with spam in their address (although I got my registration email from them without problem earlier).

I was wondering why MU had OS 10.5 listed as a requirement since the description of this update states "BETTER Leopard Support..." rather than "Made SPECIFICALLY for Leopard" but it looks like they did their homework. After rummaging through the developer's site I found, indeed, that the [OS] requirement is 10.5.6 where earlier versions of Leopard "may work".

It doesn't accept a paste from Safari or Mail when I want to copy the spam reporting email address from Spamcop's website. Does the developer really expect people to type this in? Doesn't allow me to select the Junk mail folder when in preferences AT ALL. NO explanation on how to do this except click on the help button below which does nothing when I click on it. This is cr...p software and clearly needs work!

The normal Edit menu doesn't work, nor the command short cuts is a bit odd. However, you can right-click or control click in the field and past in the email address that way. I'm not sure I understand your other comment. Do you not have a list of accounts next to the folder listing? Or is the pop-up button disabled/grayed-out?

I've been using an old AppleScript to automate my SpamCop reports. Unfortunately this application will not replace that script until it allows for "Quick" reporting. Too bad.
