I administrate a legitimate site in which our members receive both business email and spam. After going around in circles with spamcop on why our server should not be listed on their blacklist of servers to not receive email from, I can only recommend that instead of using services like spamcop that we as a computer community ask the providers of the commissions to be accountable for what they have caused.

[quote] You people really should review the product that you're commenting on, instead of reviewing related services! Doh![/quote] What do you mean by reviewing related services, and what should "Doh!" express? I'm an elated user of the free reporting service. I made mistakes, sometimes, but wasn't banishes, neither admonished ever!

It used to be a good bundle with Panther's Mail, but now it's incompatible with Tiger's version. So, if you are a Panther user and want to report your e-mails to SpamCop, I surelly recommend this software, otherwise, search elsewere.

Simply put. This product is dead. Kaput. Pushed up daisies. Developer, in a fit of petulance, after the release of Tiger and the fact that SpamCop pulled their reporting privs - killed the product because people stopped paying for it. *Gasp* I'm guessing too many newbs fumbled their reporting via Spamcop and they just didn't want to deal with the constant headache (and the associated bitching). Too bad, I'm sure there will be other products that do this.

I have to get a p'eed off because: 1. The download of 1.3.2 is ONLY for 10.3 I think - it does not work on 10.2.8. To use with 10.2.8, you have to download 1.2.2. - this should have been mentioned. 2. It still reports ONE mail at a time!! So if you highlight 5 mails, your webbrowser windows POP one after another like the 4th of july!! I thought Spamcop.net allowed attaching multiple e-mail text in one submission? Anyway, poping so many browser windows without a warning is disconcerting!! 3. When using with FireFox, I have cookie problems - when the reporting page is called from this Bundle, FireFox keeps asking for username and password (I have a paid e-mail/reporting account at SC). Directly going to the reporting page in SC does not create this cookie problem! This happens only with http://members.spamcop.net - but my own reporting link at http://mailsc.spamcop.net works fine. Too many problems as I see it.. AM

Great product. Works seamlessly with mail.app and really makes reporting spam via spamcop.net MUCH easier and streamlined. A MUST HAVE!

First of all, I have not actually used this software - Spamcop 1.3.1. I also use MS Entourage instead of Mail. With that said, I have had some experience using www.spamcop.net as well as the fact that I still believe that any product not worth $10 is not worth charging for. Please note that we are talking about two products here with very similar names - Spamcop 1.3.1 the shareware Mac product, and www.spamcop.net, a spam reporting site that can process the output of Spamcop 1.3.1. There is also a site www.spamcop.com that is a software product for Windows users and has nothing to do with the products discussed here but only serves to confuse the issue by its name. Regarding SpamCop 1.3.1 ,in my opinion anything under $10 becomes more of a nuisance fee for the user that a real income stream for the developer. If customers won't spend $10 for the product, then it should be either improved so they will, or given away at least as donationware. (fee optional). With regards to Spamcop.net:While on the surface it seems like a great idea - report the abusers back to the hosting site so that they can be shut down. However experience and further inspection of this idea reveled a number of flaws in this philosophy. - First is the fact that some abusers are the sites themselves. Spamming is how some of them make their income. So reporting them accomplishes nothing, other than to supply the developer of the site data for higher priced services. - Next is the fact of the way the "free" reporting of www.spamcop.net works. On the free service, and perhaps with the paid service, each message analysis must be manually acknowledged, and analyzed to be sent. I found myself spending more time analyzing spam to report it, then just getting rid of it and reading my "real" mail. It turned out to be a real time-waster. Additionally you constantly get bombarded by the service to convert to a paid account (subscription) whenever you use the service or process a message. While annoying, it was not insurmountable. The final clincher to cause me to abandon the service was the fact that free users are not allowed to make a single reporting mistake while using the product. If they do, their free access is shut down, supposedly forever. However the site is perfectly willing to allow you to continue using the site, providing you pay for it. The mistake I made for banishment was to accidently report spamcop.net as a spam site, due to some garbled forged or bounced header that I clicked to quickly through in the reporting sequence. Trust me on this. Sooner or later you are almost certain to make such a mistake. I should also say that after several rounds of email with the support person I finally managed to get myself reinstated as an exception. However in order to have this happen, I had to demonstrate that I had created rules in my mail program that would make it all but impossible to flag any messages that contained spamcop.net in the header as junk and endure generally arrogant and unprofessional support messages to accomplish this. I wouldn't be surprised that if the support person at spamcop.net reads this I will be banished again and I might receive some uncomplimentary feedback about these comments. We certainly did not agree about what constitutes quality and professional support. However I would much rather give others the information so that they can make an informed decision on how they want to spend their time and money than worry about being banished from a product I no longer use. For now, the most professionals recommend the way to deal with spam, is to filter it or toss it without reporting or responding to it. Given the time, money, and aggravation involved in reporting it, I tend to agree with them

I asked the developers about the problem and they answered me with this: It's already "uninstalled", having been moved out of "Bundles" into "Bundles (Disabled)". To get it to work, assuming you did actually get the 1.3.0 version, try installing all over again. We've had a few reports of Mail getting confused for some reason the first time the bundle is installed, but the second time they tried it it went off without a hitch. I did it, and at least it's installed, I don't get any type of error. Now I just need a spam to test it ;-)

If they say that this version runs with 10.3, why am I getting this error? -.- Mail has disabled the following installed bundles: SpamCop Please contact the makers of these bundles for a version compatible with Mac OS X 10.3 Mail before reinstalling them.

I don't have many problems with Spam (yet!), but what a great, way to deal with them. Now I've set up a SpamCop account, and I expect that this Mail bundle will encourage me to pony up for a paid account (and pay for the SpamCop, the bundle as well!) I also quite like the developer's approach to development, and licensing; it seems pretty fair to all concerned.

Hey it's always worked for me. One of the beauties is you get to make abuse complaints which actually has impacted on how much spam I then continue to receive. After about 3 weeks, I bought a membership. I forward my email accounts to spamcop.net where they get washed and then retrieve to my mac.com acct. Since 4/03, spamcop has caught over 2300 spams while only mistaking 4 legitimate emails. I highly recommend it!

It worked for about a week then it stopped working for me also. When I try to look at it in my mail preferences it just causes my mail app to unexpectedly quit so I had no choice but to remove it from my mac and I will not reinstall instead I will just continue to change my email address every 4 to 6 months.
